TNFJ condemns murder of Maulana Shams-ur-Rehman

ISLAMABAD, December 06: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while strongly condemning the murder of religious leader Maulana Shamsur Rehman has termed it the misdeed of enemies of Islam and Pakistan. In a statement issued here Friday he said the murder of any Sunni, Shia, Barelvi, Deobandi, Ahle Hadees and even of any minority citizen is the murder of Pakistan and humanity.

Agha Moosavi called upon all schools of thought to identify their combined enemy that has not accepted Pakistan to-date from the core of their heart. He said that we will have to thwart the conspiracy of the enemy through our mutual unity.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi demanded from the government to tighten noose around the banned groups that were using different tactics to create civil war in the country. He also demanded immediate arrest of the murderers of Maulana Shamsur Rehman and give them exemplary punishment.

Ancholi Karachi bomb blasts are the acts of those raising slogans of revenge. Perpetrators must be brought to Justice. Agha Moosavi

Islamabad, Nov 23: While strongly condemning the bomb blasts in Ancholi Karachi the chief patron of Supreme Shia Ulama Board Qauid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah MOosavi declared the incident as act of the banned organizations who are raising slogans of revenge in presence of the government administration. The government must bring the perpetrators of the incident to justice as a heinous conspiracy is being hatched against Pakistan. Taking no action against the miscreants who declared Imam Hussain and Yazeed as equal as well as the mastermind of Rawalpindi administration who is the mastermind of the Rawalpindi incident is itself a question mark. Only replacing the administrative officers from their designations and taking no action is in fact attempts to hide the truth and therefore, the CJ must take its suo-moto notice as the nation trusts him. Today, the Azans, Namaz and Deen o Shariat are safe because of the matchless sacrifice of Imam Hussain (PBUH) while the Shah Wali ullah termed the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) as the martyrdom of the holy Prophet (PBUH) in Sirr-ush-Shadatain. Disrespecting the sacrifice and Qayam of Imam Hussain (PBUH) is in fact disrespecting the holy Prophet and therefore, Ulama e Haq must break their silence. The Rawalpindi tragedy is a conspiracy to transform Pakistan into a sectarian state.

Agha Moosavi said that the pro congress elements who have been against the inception of Pakistan and who used to call Quaid e Azam as Kafir e Azam are playing their game in the garb of Rawalpindi tragedy. We will not refrain from offering any sacrifice for the protection of Pakistan’s ideological foundation and foil the conspiracies of the enemies of Islam and Pakistan.

In the statement issued from the headquarter of Maktab e Tashayyo, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the banned groups have been given freehand as part of a preplanned plot which resulted in torching of Masajid and Imambargahs during Rawalpindi tragedy and this fire spread to the whole country as the terrorist incidents of Karachi and Quetta are part of this conspiracy. He said that after the Rawalpindi tragedy the government’s support and cover for the miscreants has encouraged them further while the rulers are playing at the hands of the terrorists and they seem to be afraid of these terrorists therefore, the terrorists are operating freely and performing heinous acts. He said that from a police station to the GHQ and from ministers and advisors to the Prime Minister not a single person was spared. He said that banned groups are involved in all the tragic incidents occurring across Pakistan. Agha Moosavi said that the government did not take any notice of the hate speech on the Loudspeaker during the last Friday in Rawalpindi which is an open proof of its impartiality. By demonstrating separation from banned outfits, the representative organizations of Maktab e Ahl e Sunnah has exposed the shallow claims of the extremists for being in majority. He said that everyone must remember that Pakistan is being damaged by the pro congress, anti-Allama Iqbal and anti-Quaid e Azam elements. All departments of the state including, administration, judiciary, executives along with the rulers, politicians, and all the schools of thought will have to separate themselves from the terrorists. He said that similar to the Interior Minister’s statement that negotiations with America are not possible without stopping drone attacks, similarly, peace cannot be restored without taking action against the banned groups. He reiterated his resolve that the procession of Azadari and Meeladun Nabi can never be stopped by anyone. While strongly condemning the locking and torching of Imambargahs and Masajid during the Rawalpindi tragedy he demanded from the government to avoid intervention in the ideologies of the people and stop the arrests of innocent people while the innocent Matami and Azadars arrested so far must be set free with immediate effect without forcing us to announce a bigger strategy for the nation. Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi thanked all the political and religious leaders who are making efforts for the peace and unity of the people in Rawalpindi and Karachi and expressed his resolve to continue with his practical struggle for the protection of deen o Watan and Sunni Shia solidarity.

TNFJ rejects Pindi Incident Commission; Moosavi places confidence in CJ, demands grand judicial commission: reminds and regrets continuous injustice with Shias in Sharif’s three eras

ISLAMABAD, Nov 22: Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while utterly rejecting the Judicial Commission made for Rawalpindi Incident has said the head of the Commission has given proof of his partiality and prejudice; we keep confidence on Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary therefore he should set up a judicial commission consisting of three to five judges headed by himself to separate chalk from cheese; torched imambargahs and Alam Mubarak across Punjab including Rawalpindi are waiting for investigating officials, government administration, ministers and opposition leaders; we salute representative organizations of admitted schools of thought that declared their displeasure to Anti-Pakistan faction and few mischievous banned outfits; Army Chief, human rights and international organizations should take notice of injustice being done to Barelvi and Shia schools of thought and non Muslim minorities; opposition and Assembly members must break their silence; Mosques, Imambargahs and shopkeepers must be compensated; release all innocent immediately; we will fully cooperate for arrest of criminals; outlawed outfits must be tightened by law instead of begging for peace from them, he made his demands.

He said we kick cash money to compensate the loss being caused to mosques and imambargahs as a result of jalao gherao in Rawalpindi incident; the government get these imambargahs to be erected with their magnificence and get all torched 'tabarrukaat' to be made and built.

Agha Moosavi cleared that Punjab administration is busy in fulfilling the 'Ziai dream' of banning Milad un Nabi and Azadari but everyone must bear in mind that who fight against Mustafawiat and Hussainiat will be crashed.

He was addressing the founders and license holders of majalis, Hussaini processions and matmi zadaran at Markazi imambargah Qasr e Khadijatul Kubra at Tarlai Kalan federal area.

Agha Moosavi reminded that Mr Nawaz Sharif while he was Chief Minister Punjab, more than two dozen mosques and imambargahs were torched; when he became PM, he banned Shia Tafaseer of Quran, Nahjul Balagha and other significant Shia books; second time when he was Prime minister again similar injustice was committed. Now third time he has been posted on this seat and Pindi incident occurred, it’s a bad omen for the government and very regrettable. In success of Muslim League, the party which established Pakistan, in elections Shia school of thought has equal share; Mr. Premier can ask from his representatives about this, he added.

He strongly condemned those who termed Muharram 9 and 10 holidays as a loss to economy.

The government has become so weak that they are begging for peace from terrorists; the innocent arrested people should be released. Agha Moosavi Addresses the media in Markazi Imambargah G-6/2 during the visit of different Imambargahs of Islamabad.

Islamabad, Nov 21: Chief Patron Supreme Shia Ulma Board Hamid Ali Moosvi said that the formation of Pakistan is the result of joint Endeavour of every school of thought, Shia and Sunni are two arms of Islam. Any power of the world cannot restrict the Jaloos of Eid Milad un Nabi and Azadari. The responsibility of incident of Rawalpindi is on those 63 annulment groups who are fed like Jews were fed before. We are agree for our murder but we do not allow the assassination of Islam, Pakistan and Azadari. The other countries are fighting their war in Pakistan. Who are trying to create unrest among the sects to achieve their goals. Investigation tribunal should consist of three judges. Pakistan is not a grouping state. After Quiad –e – Azam the Pakistan became hostage in the hands of servants of America. The government has become so weak that they are begging for peace from terrorists. The investigation enquiry commission for the incident of Rawalpindi should be consist of three judges for the neutral investigation and the innocent arrested people should be released. He expressed this point of view in a press conference in Markazi Imambargah G-6/2 while visiting different Imambargahs of Islamabad.

He was accompany with the central conveyor of TNFJ Syed Shujahat Ali Bukhari, Ulams and local people.

In an answer of a question Agha Hamid Moosavi said that if a part of a body hurts it aggrieved the whole body. The Rawalpindi incident unrest the whole country. It was a preplanned conspiracy the purpose of this was to flare the fire of corruption but we with our brotherhood and unity will rotten this conspiracy. He explicated that this country has formed by Sunni and Shia school of thoughts and now it is their responsibility to protect it. He stated that the ideology of Pakistan is on Toheed but the rulers who had come after founder of Pakistan has given the nation feelings of preclusion. Maktab-e-Tashio has equally participated in the struggle for formation of Pakistan but the dictators’ policies which were not according to the constitution have produced the continuing problems for the nation. He said General Zia when he tried to make this country a secular state and tried to stop Eid Milad un Nabi and Azadi Jaloos we blocked him with 8 months agitation and siege of secretariat in which I alongwith my sons and thousands of my Shia and Sunni brothers and with Christians presented ourselves for imprisonment, which resulted in 21 May 85 agreement. While answering of a question Agha Moosvi said that in era of dictator we had rotten the conspiracy of Private Shariat Bill by saying this that in the presence of 73rd constitution there is no need of any Shariat bill. He said that I am the successor who said that a terrorist has no country and religion he is only a terrorist. Affiliating any terrorist with a country or religion or sect is itself terrorism as now a days United Nation is repeating. He said in alas that in the incident of Rawalpindi one way propaganda is continuing. The innocents are declared as culprit which is unfair. Government should fulfill the justice. The ban on loudspeakers is not the solution of the problem but the wrong use of it should be stopped. While answering a question regarding the restricting Jaloos e Azadari he said that the whole earth is declared as a mosque and prayers can be made on any part of it, the fact is that when two wrestlers are fought the winner promenade but the losers always gets against it. Eternal victory of Imam Hussain is observed through these azadari processions which is not tolerate able by Yazeedi agents similarly the celebrations of Eid Milad un Nabi frightened the evil powers, they should implant this that the lovers of Prophet (PBUH) and the believers of ANA MINAL HUSSAIN will always observe these occasion with glory. He expressed his concerns that why the protestors of Drone attacks, Audacity of Prophet (PBUH), ban on Neto supply and others issues are irritate with the processions of Grand Father and his Grandson. While answering to a question regarding the publication of objectionable literature Quiad e Millat e Jaffria Agha Hamid Ali Mosvi answered that the example of a book is like a sea it is up to the reader that what’s he take out from it a pearl or a crocodile. We consider all kind of objectionable publications poisonous.

Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi visits the burnt Imambargahs of Rawalpindi
if it the investigations of the Rawalpindi tragedy are not based upon facts and justice, then we will reject the reports from the investigating tribunal or commission.
No one can stop the Majalis and Processions of Azadari and Meelad un Nabi

RAWALPINDI, November 19: The chief patron of the Supreme Shia Ulama board Qauaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has stressed upon the government to take action against the banned elements who are trying to instigate riots in the country by using the name of the Sunni school of thought while they do not hold any support from the Sunnis also. Sunnis and Shias involved in arrangements of the Sabeel and Niaz on the occasion of Youm e Ashura are not involved in settings buildings on fire. If it is observed that the investigations of the Rawalpindi Tragedy are not based upon facts and justice, then we will reject the reports from this tribunal or commission. According to a pre-planned design, some elements of the Punjab government, media and some groups of the Tajirs(traders) are demonstrating discriminative attitude and blaming and accusing Maktab e Tashayyo through negative propaganda while at the same time they are refraining even from mentioning about the Imambargahs that were set on fire in Rawalpindi tragedy. He said this while addressing to the Matami and Azadars, License holders and conductors of Majalis during his emergency visit to burnt Imambargahs, Masajid, and Azakhanas while the Baniyan informed him about the damages caused to the Azakhanas and the scripts of the holy Quran and other sacred things placed in those Imamabargahs. Ulama e Karam, religious scholars and the members of the central Muharram Committee of the TNFJ were also present on the occasion.

Agha Moosavi sai that If the responsibility of the Rawalpindi Tragedy is to be put on Maktab e Tashayyo, then there is no use of making any investigative commission or tribunal. Rulers must exercise wisdom and must not force us to take some bigger step. We are not those who bow before others rather we can accept to be beheaded instead which remain high even at the peak of the spear.

Agha Moosavi said that the Sura e Ankaboot of the holy Quran says that “Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested” Agha Moosavi reminded that the holy Prophets including Adam Safi ullah, Nooh Najiullah, Ibrahim Khalilullah, Moosa Kaleemullah, Eisa Ruhullah, and the last of the holy Prophets Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa habeebullah (PBUH&HHP) faced and went through several tests. The holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (PBUH&HHP) stated that no one else had been tortured the way I was. He said that Muslim Ummah went through several tests in every era. After the defeat of Russia, the colonial powers while acting upon their new world order; started targeting Muslims and Muslim countries which continues till date. Due to this, Muslim countries are also desecrated and the enemies are using their divide and rule formula against them to fulfill its own interests while Pakistan being the nuclear state of Muslim Ummah, is the prime target. Agha Moosavi said that by using the lame excuse of 9/11, Pakistan is being targeted while the easy way to the fulfillment of their interests is by instigating discrimination and using ideologies and faiths as weapons.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the blood of the innocent people was shed right from Parachanar to Karachi and Taftaan to Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan and then the terrorists and extremists turned towards Rawalpindi during Muharram ul Haram. He said that the month of Muharram comes every year however this time this sacred month was disrespected and insulted in a way that never happened before. Stopping the Majalis and processions of Muharram and making Shias and Sunnis fight against each other is the part of the agenda. He stressed upon the fact that despite the Last year’s bomb attack on Muharram procession in Dhoke Syedan to Masjid e Shah e Najaf, Yazdani tragedy, the tragedy of Aun Muhammad Rizwi’s murder and an attempt to target me through suicide bombing at Bari Imam that caused dozens of casualties; we did not let anyone react and stopped the unrest which proves that we are peace loving people.

Agha Moosavi clarified that all schools of thought participated and played integral roles in founding Pakistan where all Sunnis, Shias, Deobandis, Barelvis, Ahl e Hadees and even the non-Muslims are friends with each other and live with peace and harmony which is not liked by the enemy. He said that the government had banned 63 organizations however; the same banned elements entered into the political and religious parties and using the names of those sects for their persona agenda. He said that setting things on fire and inflicting harm on anyone is haram and defeated several oppressors. We are friends with the oppressed and enemy of the oppressors without any discrimination of religion, sect or country. He demanded from the government to present the list of all the victims of the Rawalpindi tragedy along with the information of their family trees. He asked those who are talking about limiting the religious processions of Meelad un Nabi and Muharram ul Haram; that do they themselves protest against drone attacks or disrespect to the holy Prophet (PBUH&HHP) and other occasions by sitting at home? He said that those ignorant from the teachings of Islam must recite the first verse of the sixth chapter of the holy Quran and read the tafseer of the Daarul Ishaat of Shah Fahad and then tell if the holy Quran allows people to protest within and outside their homes or not? He said that they consider protesting against the bad things happened to them as legitimate however; do not like the protests against the oppression and brutality inflicted upon the family of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HHP). He said that Azadari is that eternal peaceful protest of the oppressed which is not against a specific person but it exposes the true face of Yazeediyat and his dictatorship which he tried to hide through a fake veil of Islam, and hence Azadari can never be stopped by any one. He stressed upon the followers of Sunni and Shia schools of thought and asked them to wake up and thwart the conspiracy of their common enemy.

Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi invited the media showing only one side of the picture to visit the Imambargahs of Hifazat Ali Shah, Chittyan Hattiyan, and Imambargah Qadeem of Rawalpindi to cover the disrespect of the holy Quran and other sacred objects in those Imambargahs and show it to the whole nation as otherwise they will have to give answer in front of Almighty Allah and his holy Prophet (PBUH&HHP). Agha Moosavi demanded from the government to pay for the damages caused during the tragedy of Rawalpindi, take concrete steps to stop banned elements, remove all the hurdles in the way of Azadari. He said that I visited the burnt places of worship with a spirit of national peace and harmony however; despite prior intimation, media did not reach to provide coverage which raises question marks. He stressed upon Azadars to demonstrate patience and while acting in accordance with his code of Azadari, they must prefer Azadari of Imam Hussain (PBUH) at all other things till 8th Rabi ul Awal and participate in Majalis e Aza and Matami processions. He appealed to the representative organizations of the established schools of thought to separate themselves from the banned and extremist elements as otherwise they will also be responsible for any adverse impact and damages to the nation and the country.

TNFJ demands to retrieve the dozens of Azadaran, Matmis and women abducted after the Rawalpindi incident

ISLAMABAD, November 17: The Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya has demanded from the government to retrieve the dozens of Azadaran, Matmis and women abducted after the Rawalpindi incident, all Majalis that continue till 8th Rabiul Awwal be provided protection and all Azadari processions be taken out as per tradition and provided with protection in accordance with the Junejo-Moosavi agreement, action may be taken under 295-C against those who played with law and order situation and desecrated holy Quran, Imambargahs, mosques, Alams and names of the Rasool (SAAW) and Ahle Bait (A.S.), noose may be tightened around those parties that have already been banned, the culprits of the Ashoora incidents may be given exemplary punishment after getting these incidents probed by non-controversial judge, and norms of justice may be fulfilled.

Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari, Additional Secretary General of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya in his in a Press conference addressed here at National Press Club said the Madaris, mosques and Imambargahs set on fire during the hooliganism may be reconstructed, loss of the traders’ community and others may be compensated, bereaved families may be provided with compensation, injured may be provided with suitable treatment and children orphaned may be provided with patronage. He was flanked by Allama Akhlaq Kazmi, Bu Ali Mehdi, Allama Saqlain Bokhari, Allama Abul Hassan Taqi, Meesam Tammar Jafri, and Matmi Azadaran.

Shujaat Ali Bokhari said the whole nation that was united against the American aggression, Drone attacks and Indian interference has been entangled in a new conspiracy. The artificial environment of tension has been created throughout the country. Riots have been initiated throughout the country including Rawalpindi, Multan and other cities purposely. Then mosques, Imambargahs, Tazias and Quran Majeed were desecrated and put on fire that also carried the name of Rasool (SAAW) and Ahle Bait (A.S.) in Chishtian and Rawalpindi. He said setting dozens of Imambargahs and Quran on fire in the presence of army, Rangers, and administration provides food for thought. He made it clear that the administration proved itself incompetent and gave free hand to miscreants.

He pointed out that messages were tweeted before the Ashoora procession for preparation to create riot but the government kept its eyes closed. The administration, it seems, gave full opportunity to miscreants to first deliver provocative speeches, then hurling stones and then firing under a planned strategy. The TNFJ leadership continued their Majlis-e-Aza in the meantime at Fawwara Chowk and most of the Azadars were present there. He lamented that that the purpose of imposing curfew was only to stop the Azadari processions as the miscreants continued putting the Imambargahs, Quran, Alams, holy names of Rasool (SAAW) and Ahle Bait (A.S.) and other Taburrakaat on fire unabated. He said the actual curfew restriction was seen in Chaur Harpal and Westridge from where three annual Azadari processions are being taken out on Muharram 11 for years.

He said that Ashoora incidents have left some questions that may be replied by the government: Why army was not inducted in Rawalpindi despite it was demanded by Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi? Why all these incidents took place in the Punjab? The administration continued pressing the organisers of Majalis-e-Aza and the Waizeen against use of loudspeaker throughout the Ashra-e-Muharram but why that gave a free hand to those who committed desecration of Ahle Bait (A.S.) using loudspeakers? Incidents of attack, stoning, firing at procession, setting on fire continued for many hours and why administration did not take any action to quell the same? The way weapons were snatched from the security personnel and then returned, no wise person is ready to accept it. Was the purpose of the administration present there was to provide weapons to the miscreants? Was the imposition of curfew after the incident was to stop Azadari processions? How the miscreants remained busy in attacking Imambargahs and mosques despite imposition of curfew? Imambargahs and mosques were put on fire only in Rawalpindi, Chishtian and some other place, where had the security gone at these places?

Attack on the Azadari procession and riot was a well thought-out plan, Administration given a free hand to miscreants, Agha Hamid Moosavi

RAWALPINDI, November 16: The Patron of the Supreme Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the incident in Rawalpindi’s Ashoora procession was patronised and attack on the Azadari procession and riot was a well thought-out plan of the Administration that has given a free hand to miscreants. Murder of a human being is the murder of whole humanity. He demanded formation of a high level judicial tribunal to probe the incident. He said putting the Imambargahs and holy Quran on fire and insulting the name of Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW) and Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) in the presence of Rangers and armed forces provides food for thought. He said Sunni-Shia are brethren and they will prove through their deeds that no power on earth could create rift in their unity.

Agha Moosavi said that he had proposed in his Press conference before Muharram that the sensitive cities may be handed over to the army but not handing over Rawalpindi to the army that carries 13 sensitive cities poses a question mark. He said mosques, Imambargahs, religious institutions and even temples, mandirs and churches belonging to minorities are respectable while setting on fire mosques and Imambargahs where Azadari Taburrakaat and Qurans are also placed is monsterism.

He said that the Administration had imposed ban on Ulema, Zakireen and Waizeen of then why they allowed use of loudspeakers to those who desecrated Ahle Bait (A.S.) during the Azadari procession and despite pointing out the Administration could make any timely steps to stop this non-sense. The way weapons were snatched from trained personnel of the security forces and used in the riot suggests that the snatcher may belong to the Administration. It seems that the government was completely following the agenda given by terrorists and is afraid of them.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi assured the powers that be and the countrymen that the followers of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya neither committed aggression before nor they are going to do again and will join the advanced force for the protection and peace of the country. He said Pakistan was created by Sunnis, Shias and minorities jointly and they will also defend it jointly, he added.

The whole world has become a Karbala at the hands of the colonial powers; the spirit of Hussainiyat must be revived, The Message of Quaid e Millat e Jafaria on the day of Ashura”

ISLAMABAD, Nov 14: Chief patron of Supreme Shia Ulama board Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the whole world has become a Karbala at the hands of the colonial powers therefore, the spirit of Hussainiyat must be revived. Imam Hussain offered such an eternal sacrifice which gave eternal life to Islam and shariat of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HHP). Imam Hussain saved dignity of the holy Khana Kaaba, efforts of the prophets, and teachings of the holy Quran from obliteration while also demonstrated the true meanings and description of the hadees of the holy Prophet “Hussain o Minni Wa Anaa Minal Hussain”. Today the name of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HHP) is alive because of the sacrifice of his grandson Hazrat Imam Hussain (PBUH&HHP). He said this in his message on the occasion of Youm e Ashura which is being commemorated throughout Pakistan with religious respect and reverence.

Agha Moosavi said that the great sacrifice of the martyrs of Karbala is a source of strength and courage. Today, the bloodshed of innocent Muslims in Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Palestine, Kashmir and Burma is the order of the day, Yemen and Pakistan are being targeted through drone attacks, Muslim rulers have become stooges of the colonial powers, hundreds and thousands of lives has been lost due to the menace of terrorism and seeds of discrimination are being sowed among Muslims while the colonial powers are openly exercising their fraudulent policy. They declared certain groups as terrorists yet support the same groups in Syria, Libya and Egypt while the international organizations are quiet upon their deceitful actions. Similarly the rulers of nuclear power Pakistan are also afraid of the colonial powers, in such grave situation the only way out lies in the spirit of Hussaniat, which gives lessons of confronting the oppression and brutality through innocence and Mazloomiyat. Hussani spirit obliterates the menace of dictatorship.

Agha Moosavi said that as soon as Yazeed took over the rule; he started making fun of the Holy Prophet’s religion refrained from accepting the revolutions and disrespected the Prophet Hood. He also attempted to change the declared status of Haram and Halal while all kind of evil deeds became the order of the day. How could Imam Hussain A.S accept this deviation and let the untiring efforts of 124,000 Prophets go in vain, it was an open deviation from Islam for which His grandfather struggled throughout his life, faced the oppression of unbelievers of Makah, his grandmother Hazrat Khadija tul Kubra A.S along with Hazarat Abu Talib A.S bore hunger in Shabe Abi Talib , the Holy Prophet left his mother land, Hamza and Jafar e Tiyar kissed martyred on and hundreds of battle were fought against non believers. Similarly his father l Hazarat Ali ibne Abi Talib A.S scarified his life in Masjid e Kofa, His mother bore uncountable hardships and left the world and His brother Imam Hassan A.S rejected the rule. How could Imam Hussain A.S allow a dictator to tarnish the face of Islam? Therefore Imam Hussain A.S stood against the evil designs of Yazeed.

Agha Hamid Ali Shah Moosavei said that Imam Hussain is the true heir of all the Holy Prophets and protector of Deen e Mustafa. He was also heir of his father’s courage and the Holy Quran. He reminded the teachings of the Holy Quran and ordered the people to perform good deeds and refrain from evil. Imam Hussain A.S while acting in accordance with the will of Holy Prophet stood against the evil. He rejected from pledging allegiance to Yazeed by saying that “Misli La Uba Yo Misla Hoo”. Imam Hussain A.S clarified his objectives by saying “I am not going to fight or revolt or to oppress someone rather I have stood up for the betterment of my grandfather’s Ummah, my sole purpose is to perfom Ammar Bilmaroof and Nahi Analmunkir, following the footsteps of my father and grandfather”. Agha Moosavi said that Imam Hussain A.S invited everyone to support the righteousness as He stated “ I invite you towards the Holy book of Allah and the path of His messengers, today Sunnah is not being acted upon while Biddat is being revived”. Only 72 souls agreed to support the Imam Hussain A.S and kiss martyred on. The grandson of the holy Prophet left Madina on 28th of Rajab after bidding farewell to the graves of His grandfather, mother and brother. In order to protect the dignity of Holy Kabba Imam Hussain A.S changed his plan of Hajj into Ummrah on 8th of Zil LHajj and entered Karbal-e-Moallah on 2nd of Moharram Ul Harram, then on the day of Ashura He along with his 72 companions offered that great sacrifice which is known as FADAENA BA ZIB HIN AZEEM.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that all the scholars and mujtahids and fakihi are convinced that the oppression and brutality can only be confronted by keeping the spirit of Hussaniat while Azadari is mandatory to protect Hussaniat, because Hussaniat has given eternal life to Shariat. As the minasak e Hajj cannot be completed by offereing charity to the poor instead of offering sacrifice likewise the ibadat of azadari reaminf incomplete without performing Zanjeer Zani and Quma Zani. Without performing Quma Zani the pain and suffering of Hazrat Zainab a Kubra A.S cannot be realized who had to leave the body of her brother unburied while she was also handcuffed. Similarly without the matam of Zanjeer Zani how could the new generations feel the pain of Hazrat Imam Zain Ul Aabadeen A.S, if the processions of Qasim’s Mehndi and Akbar’s Sehra are not brought out then how the mothers would ralize the pain and suffering of Mother’s of Hussaini Karwan who lost their sons in Karbala. Despite facing all this pain and suffering Imam Hussain A.S defeated the evil of Yazeediat which distinguishes his noble sacrifice from all other sacrifices. He said that the several examples of sacrificing life can be found in the history however none of them can match the sacrifice of Imam Hussain A.S who offered his own part of water to his enemies, remained thirsty for three days before getting killed brutally. Sacrificing from infant to the adults is indeed an achievement which is only related to Imam Hussain A.S.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that rituals of Azadari including majlis e aza, matam od Zanjeer and Quma, Allam, Tazia, Ghawara, Mehndi and Zuljinnah are integral part of azadari as well as a cure for the bereaved hearts of the mother and sister of Imam Hussain A.S. The spirits of sacrifice as well as the Shariat of holy prophet are alive just because of the azadari rituals. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the spirit of Hussaniat stays alive the oppression and brutality will remain afraid while Yazeed of any era will not be able to succeed in his evil plots. The azadari of Imam Hussain is that great power which can be used to confront all kinds of evil while the oppressors can be knee down. While paying condolence in the courts of the Holy Prophet, Syeda Fatima Zehra A.S and the holy Imam of this era Quaid e Millat e Jafaria pledged to protect the dignity of azadari e Imam Hussain A.S and vowed to offer any sacrifice for the protection of Islam and Pakistan while following the path of Hussaniat.

Those who are declaring Fatwas against Armed forces are requested to present their certificates of being Mufti or Mujtahid, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD Nov 13: In the memory of the great sacrifices of the grandson of the holy Prophet Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S) and his pious progeny and companions that was offered for the protection of human values and Shariat e Mustafawai, a mourning procession of Alam, taboot, Zuljanah and Gehwara of Shehzada Ali Asghar (A.S) brought out from Masjid o Imambargah Jamea tul Murtaza G-9/4 Islamabad led by Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, in which thousands of Azadars and dozens of matami organizations participated.

While addressing to the press talk with journalists of electronic and print media Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Hussainiyat is the protector of Pakistan’s safety and a source of strength while soldiers of armed forces who lay their lives for the protection of our borders and to restore peace within the country are martyrs of Islam and Pakistan. Those who are declaring Fatwas against Armed forces are requested to present their certificates of being Mufti or Mujtahid while they must also explain about their support and association with America during Afghan War. Those who are confusing the nation and trying to discourage our armed forces are in fact serving the heinous agenda of the enemies of Pakistan. Accusing Pakistan’s armed forces is the completion of the anti Pakistan agendas of Jewis and Zionists. America and India were already accusing and blaming Pakistan’s armed forces while the same has started from within also.

Agha Moosavi said that the holy Prophet had predicted about the martyrdom of his pious companion Hazrat Ammar Yasir at the hands of a rebellion group. Then why those who are protecting a state which was founded on the name of Islam from its internal enemies are not martyrs? He said that the oppressors and the brutal rulers of every era used the name of Islam to serve their personal interests and Yazeed was also one of the same characters however the secrifies of Imam Hussain (a.s) exposed him and those who disrespect the marterers and heroes of Pakistan have also exposed themselves through their irresponsible statements.

Agha Mosvi said that Pakistan is the second state founded on the Islamic ideology after the state of Madina and therefore any step taken to protect the security and interests of Pakistan is right according to Islamic teaching. The Holy Prophet bounded the Jews and Cristians of Madina in a pact named Mesaq-e-Madina for the sake of protection of first Islamic state, according to the pact the joint strategy was formulated through which all the signatories were bound to defend the state of Madina in case of a foreign attack.

Agha Mosvi said that by standing against Yazeed who was disrespecting the Islamic teachings and its ideology Imam Hussain (a.s) proved that he is the true heir of the Holy Prophet’s family and his ideology. Imam Hussain became a protecting shield of Islam and through his secrefies he granted an eternal guarantee for the righteousness of Islam. Azadari of Imam Hussain is the best source of paying homage and agr-e-risalat to the holy Prophet.

Agha Mosvi said that the love of motherland is declared as an integral part of faith. Therefore our soldiers appointed for the protection of the motherland are also protecting the faith and while doing so if they lost their lives they will be considered as martyrs ( Shaheed).

While answering another question he condemned the continued music programs on several TV channels as well as holding a cricket match on the day of Ashura.

Meanwhile the mourning procession reached at Mohammadi chowk where Majlis e Aza was held which was addressed by the renowned scholar Choudhry Abu Baidar Ali who said the Imam Hussain A.S is not related to a particular sect rather He is the common hero of the whole mankind. The participants of the majlis aza pledged to ensure strict compliance with the code of azadari announced by the Quaid e Millat Jafria Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi.

Later zanjeer Zani was also performed to pay tributes in the courts of Imam Hussain A.S. On this occasion Mukhta Force, Mukhtar Student Organization, Mukhtar Organization, Ibrahim Scouts and Mukhtar Generation performed administrative duties, while Ummul Banin WF managed security and administration for women. Members of the Moharram Committee TNFJ Islamabad along with countable numbers of officers from Police Department accompanied the mourning procession throughout the procession route. Allama Zahid Abbas Kazmi made dua at the end of procession. At the end, the chief administrator Syed Shujaat Ali Bukhari thanked the authorities and participants.

The continuity of disturbing the mourners of Imam Hussain (A.S) should be stopped; Agha Moosavi addresses TNFJ Legal committee

ISLAMABAD, Nov 10: Guaradian of Shia Ullama Board, Quaid e Milat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Moosavi has said that the incidents of continued terrorism in Gujranwala, Karachi and other cities of the country are the act of Anti-State elements. Government should arrest and give exemplary punishment to the people responsible of terrorism. There is no Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict in the country; all the schools of thought are observing the mourning of Imam Hussain (A.S) with great respect. The continuity of disturbing the mourners of Imam Hussain (A.S), by banning on Ullama and Zakireen, should be stopped. These thoughts were expressed by Aqae Moosavi while addressing to Ashab Ali Bangash Advocate, Barister Qamar Sabzwari, Jaffar Raza Khan Advocate, Ahsan Kazmi Advocate and Syed Muhammad Murtaza Advocate in connection to the performance review of TNFJ Legal Committee for Azadari.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Al Moosavi said that the establishment of Pakistan is the result of all the schools of thought and there is mutual harmony among all of them yet some radical elements cannot tolerate this mutual brotherhood and fraternity. inapt advisers are deviating the government from taking right decisions, those who even cannot differentiate between the anti-state and patriotic elements, how would be able to establish the formula for peace? If the rulers really want to establish peace in the country, they should arrest the banned groups and scrutinized them. The cooperation of Federal Government with TNFJ regarding the establishment of Azadari Cells throughout the country to facilitate the mourners of Imam e Mazloom is highly appreciable, while the government of Punjab and other provincial governments are trying to sulk over the situation. Media is a great power; it should utilize its energies to establish peace in a powerful way. Banned groups and their new groups are taking the advantage of achieving projection through different incidents, Media personalities and rulers should take the notice of this. The thoughts of Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal were full of the ideology of Hussaniyat, following the same ideologies, Muslims can get the rid of all the problems.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Al Moosavi said that Azadari is the inheritance of Syeda Zainab (S.A) and the life-blood of our lives. No protest is bigger than Azadari and no grief is higher than the Grief of Imam Hussain (A.S). During the days of the mourning of Imam Hussain (A.S) is a conspiracy to sabotage the programs of Muharram ul Harram, which will never be succeeded. The one who would try to access any other path than Azadari e Imam e Mazloom does not belong to Shia school of thought at all. He asked that those Ullama who propagate the teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAW), his holy Progeny and pious companions of the Holy Prophet (SAW), killed whome that they are banned while the banned groups are opening carrying out their activities openly even with their new identities? They are open to work, active on media and infuriated in the press conferences after every incident. Banning Ullama and Zakireen affect the programs of Muharram ul Harram which is the part of planned conspiracy. If the government is really sincere, it should arrest the banned groups, though who proliferate hatreds and gaps, terrorists and trouble makers. He said that last the army soldiers were targeted and today three innocent people were killed in Gujranwala. Height of everything is that now even the rulers are being threatened. He requested that the government and the mourners should identify their friend and enemy and instead of getting infuriated, make decisions in a calm and witty way. Strike and calls are not the kind of protest we do, it’s the Azadari of Imam e Mazloom which has been carried out since 14 centuries that we do, and will keep doing till the Day of Judgment. Thus the mourner of Imam e Mazloom does not prefer anything else than Azadari, through terrorism one cannot deviate us from the path of Hussaniyat. Everyone should be vigilant, for the protection strengthens Mukhtar Force. He hoped that Legal Committee Tehreek e Nafaz e Fiqh will promote brotherhood and fraternity and without any discrimination will work for the establishment of peace and nation interest.

Whole Ummah is bleeding and the Islamic World and Pakistan should follow the path of Hussain (A.S.) to get rid of this situation, Moosavi Message on start of Muharram

ISLAMABAD, November 05: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the whole Ummah is bleeding and the Islamic World and Pakistan should follow the path of Hussain (A.S.) to get rid of this situation. He said the politicians were busy in racing out one another and lack of coordination between the Federal and Provincial government provides food for thought. Issue of holding the APC repeatedly is to make the matters more complicated.

In his message on the start of month of Muharramul Haraam, Agha Moosavi said Muharramul Haraam is the month in which riot and arson are avoided and it is commensurate with honour and dignity, therefore strikes calls and playing with law and order should be avoided. He said the government should take steps in accordance with the mandate of the nation as getting rid of colonial powers is not possible without displaying the Hussaini commitment.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said it is requirement of the time to exercise wisdom instead expressing passions. The passionate decisions can divide the nation but could not restore peace or coordination.

Azadari is the biggest protest of the oppressed and we will observe Azadari whatever the situation is, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, November 04: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Azadari is the biggest protest of the oppressed and we will observe Azadari whatever the situation is. Had the decisions of the APC were implemented without any delay then America would not have got the chance to play games with us. If dialogue can be held with India despite they broke the country then why not with Taliban as dialogue is necessary to decide what the lie and what is truth. If Taliban do not recognize the constitution but they recognize Pakistan therefore dialogue should be held in every situation. If Taliban actually consider American colonial power as their enemy then they should come to the dialogue table and make this process a success so as to give a befitting reply to colonial powers. In the present circumstances, all powers including the government should make their decision in coordination and a joint strategy should be laid instead of giving strike calls to the nation. The Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, as an advanced force, will extend support to anyone who will take any step in the interest of the nation and the country. There is need to follow the path of Hussain (A.S.) and give priority to death in honour over life in disguise to thwart the nefarious designs of enemies of Islam and Pakistan. This was stated by him in a message on the beginning of Muharram.

Agha Moosavi said the international Satans desire to entangle Pakistan in host of problems, keep the Arab world in different issues because if peace is restored in these areas then their attention may divert towards independence of Kashmir and Palestine. He said Muharramul Haraam is commensurate with Imam Hussain (A.S.) who avoided war and continued dialogue from his departure from Madinah till Shab-e-Ashoor. He did not initiate the attack but Omar Ibne Saad fired the first arrow to do so. He said the live nations keep remembering their heroes and this is in practice since the era of Rasool (SAAW) who observed the deaths of Ummul Momineen Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.) and Nigehban-e-Risalat Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) as the year of mourning. But, he said, there are some days that are observed by Muslims and that are Ayyam-e-Shahadat of Shuhada and in this connection Muharram is considered the most honourable and dignified month during with the Day of Ashoor took place in which the biggest hero of the world of humanity Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) sacrificed his life along with his diehard near and dear ones to save the dignity of mankind and the enforcement of Nizam-e-Illahi.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that no one matches the 72 diehard supporters of Imam Hussain (A.S.) and Farzand-e-Rasool Imam Hussain (A.S.) also boasted on this fact saying that the companions I have got were not available to anyone. He said the sacrifices of these personalities would remain a beacon of light till the rest of this world. He said no lashkar or caravan in the universe could be visible where every member is like-mind, it was only the caravan of Karbala in which personalities like Habib Ibne Mazahir, Muslim Ibne Osjah had the same thinking as was that of Shahzada Ali Akbar (A.S.) and Hazrat Abbas Ibne Ali (A.S.) and none of them left the Hussaini Lashkar and switched his side while many people from Lashkar-e-Yazid joined the Hussaini Lashkar. It was the great victory of Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) which preaches us no power how big it is could frighten the human being if he is on the right path.

Government should avoid indecent steps of limiting Azadari in the garb of Muharram arrangements, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, November 02: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the whole humanity is indebted to Shaheed-e-Azam Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) therefore the government should avoid indecent steps of limiting Azadari in the garb of Muharram arrangements and immediately withdraw the steps that are unconstitutional and in contrary to basic rights taken on the recommendations of incompetent Administration. If we have given the line of action to Ulema, Zakireen and Azadaran who are hit by the government orders to not speaking and exile from districts despite preaching unity and brotherhood, to take extreme step then the government would not be able to stand on their own feet. The whole nation would strictly follow the Code of Azadari announced by him and are present to cooperate in every pious work like in the past but we will never accept any interference in way of Azadari come what may. This was stated by him while addressing a function in connection with the three-day Istaqbal-e-Ramazan that is being observed from 27-29 Zilhaj.

Agha Moosavi said that if the rulers are manly then they should tighten noose around the banned groups instead of restricting the peaceful and gentlemen people. He made it clear that Nawasa-e-Rasool Al-Saqlain Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) heightened the status of Shahadat-e-Uzma. Shaheed not only enjoys right over the whole humanity but he also enjoys a high status because he gives a new lease of life to the nation. He said the Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) preached that highest lesson by staying against oppression and brutality which is a beacon of light for the lovers of freedom and independence. He said support will be reiterated to the oppressed and hatred will be announced against oppression and brutality by holding 3-day Istaqbal-e-Muharram programme.

The TNFJ chief said today it is dark all around and the world is confronted oppression and brutality and there is need to practically follow the Asswah of Shaheed-e-Azam Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) as it is the only way to wipe out the Pharaohs and Nimruds of every era. He said all Muslims can better their life and enlighten the society by joining the Hussaini caravan. He lamented that the powers that be and the Establishment from top to bottom remains busy in frightening the Azadars from Ramazan to Muharram while Ulema, Zakireen and Waezeen are disallowed to speak and enter other districts without giving any cogent reasons while the extremist groups were roaming about freely despite their involvement in cases of terrorism. He said no punishment can be given before committing any wrong act therefore the government should file cases against those Ulema and Zakireen who violate Code of Azadari issued by us and are involved in delivering speeches that may spread hatred and infuriate others. He called upon the government to give up double standards. He said restrictions have been imposed on Ulema and Zakireen throughout the country under a well-planned conspiracy to sabotage Muharramul Haraam programmes, therefore, Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif may stop the provincial governments from encroaching upon the freedom of Azadaran and issue order to stop the media coverage of the banned groups.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi strongly condemned the electronic and print media for ‘killing’ the press conference of the TNFJ in which Code of Azadari for the oncoming month of Muharram was announced. He said Maktab-e-Tashih has the equal rights on the media and those who are creating hurdles in their way are not sincere with the nation and the country. He said all those recognised schools of thought who observe Azadari and Milad-un-Nabi jointsly deserve salute and being the true followers of the Hazoor-e-Akram (SAAW) they will thwart the nefarious designs of their combined enemy and their agents on the occasion of Azadari of Nawasa-e-Rasool (A.S.) and Milad-un-Nabi.

The situation may be sour or hard but the Azadari of Imam Hussain (A.S.) will be always be kept alive, Moosavi announces 16-point Code of Azadari
Every Prophet carried out dialogue with the oppressors. If Taliban do not accept the constitution, even then dialogue should be initiated with them
Pakistan should honor the Gas Pipeline Agreement Iran without considering any sanctions

RAWALPINDI, October 31: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while announcing a 16-point Code of Azadari has made it clear that we have neither accepted any hurdle and interference in Azadari before nor we are going to accept the same in future. The situation may be sour or hard but the exemplary sacrifice of Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) will be always be kept alive owing to which Islam is still alive. Answering different questions at a crowded Press conference along Ulema Karaam, elite of the Tehreek and office-bearers of the TNFJ Muharram Committee Azadari Cell, here Thursday, Agha Moosavi said every government makes arrangements on papers through bureaucracy who without consulting the representatives of the nation form adulatory peace committees contrary to the ground realities and try to befool the people. It is unfortunate that even in the present era the innocent and peace-loving people are bound while the banned organisations are roaming about freely and playing with the life and property of the people. He called upon the rulers to become brave and tighten noose around 65 banned groups most of whom have also changed their names.

Agha Moosavi talking with reference to dialogue with Taliban said every Prophet including the Holy Prophet (SAAW) carried out dialogue with the oppressors and tyrants rulers in every era. If Taliban do not accept the constitution, even then dialogue should be initiated with them because not carrying out dialogue is commensurate with strengthening American power. He said America herself is initiating dialogue with Taliban and they should not feel troubled if Pakistan does the same. He said in Hudaibia, the atheists of Makkah did not recongise Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) as the Prophet of Allah and had refused to accept Islamic Constitution. But, he added, the Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) entered in dialogue with them which culminated in Sulah-e-Hudaibia that became the preface of Fatah-e-Mubeen i.e. Makkah’s victory. Therefore, he said, dialogue should be carried out with the extremist groups till last.

Answering a question, the TNFJ chief said that America by carrying out Drone attack before Nawaz Sharif’s return home has announced the results of Prime Minister’s America Yatra. He said Nawaz Sharif had gone to America with an agenda to stop Drone attacks, return of Aafia Siddiqui and trade in which he failed miserably. He said the live nations protect themselves therefore we should get rid of America following the Asswah of Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.) because it is Allah Who is Super Power and not America, therefore the one who banks on Allah will emerge successful. He said there is need to tighten noose around those who allowed Drone attacks. The government should also carry out the accountability of the outgoing government and the Musharraf era viz. Drone attacks.

Agha Moosavi said except Quaid-i-Azam and a few politicians, all rulers followed the policies of the international Satan i.e. America. He said dictator Ziaul Haq was the founder of terrorism who tried to destruct the Pakistan Ideology by turning Pakistan into a Maslaki and Maktabi State but Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya thwarted his designs and I myself went to jail along with my children while our 14,000 workers also went to jail against his designs as a result of which the official religion of Pakistan, by the Grace of God, today is Islam and not any Sunni, Shia, Barelvi or Deobandi Maslak. He said the 8-month agitation of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya culminated in Junejo-Moosavi agreement which was not aimed at for Shias only but for the whole Ahle Islam and Pakistan and that gave protection to Eid-e-Milad and Azadari processions.

Talking about restrictions imposed on Zakireen and Ulema before Muharram, he said we did not accept restrictions on Azadari before nor will accept the same in future. He said we are peaceful citizens of Pakistan and are bound to the commandments of Allah only and we reserve our right to take legal action in this connection. He said the government should improve relations with its neighbours, particularly with the Islamic States. But unfortunately, he added, the Afghan soil was always used against Pakistan and it is that soil from where India is playing her game. He said the Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) had honoured his agreements even with atheists and Pakistan should also honour the Gas Pipeline Agreement signed with brotherly Islamic State of Iran without considering any sanctions. Giving the example of Sheb-e-Abi Talib he said the rulers should not take care of American threats.

Agha Moosavi said that there is no Shia-Sunni conflict throughout the world including Pakistan, it is the war of a few groups and two Muslim States have made Pakistan a battlefield of their own interests while the Satanic trio of America, India and Israel desire to reap benefit of infuriating this situation. But, he added, they will not let any war between Sunnis and Shias till they are alive. We can die ourselves but will not let Pakistan murdered. He said the government is under the obligation to the check the accounts of those Ulema, politicians and parties who are deprived of their immediate needs till yesterday and how they have become billionaires within no time.

The TNFJ chief said that Saudi denial to accept Security Council seat is not enough, Muslims should achieve the right to veto. Those Muslims who are in the forefront in subservience to America, they should give priority to Islam and give the discrimination of Arab and Ajam. He said it is tragic that Muslims are not being allowed to perform their religious rites according to their own faith. The Saudi rulers should follow the Khutba-e-Hajj of their own Mufti-e-Azam first. He said in attacks from Darbar Bari Imam, Sakhi Mahmood Shah to Syria, Saudi Arabia, Tunis, Egypt, Libya the same ideologists are behind it who had destructed the holy shrines of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moallah in 1924. Answering a question about the death penalty, he said this authority only rested with the Khatamul Anbia (SAAW) who forgave all blood on Fatah-e-Makkah and the present rulers should not try to become Nabi or Amirul Momineen as under Islam no ruler or the government has the authority to give up death term.

Agha Moosavi said that on this basis the Hazoor-e-Akram had said that حسین منی و انا من الحسین. He is responsible for the revival of my religion, giving it a new lease of life, and for its survival and stability. Today, 1400 centuries have passed to the incident of Karbala but it is still alive in the hearts of the people. No city, town, or village is there where Hussain (A.S.) is not remembered, Majalis are not organised and Azadari processions are not taken out, Azadars, Matmis, Qama-Zan and Zanjeer-Zans not pay pursa in Bargah-e-Risalat for his grandson. He said, today, we are observing Muharramul Haraam in a situation where no part of the motherland is spared from the reach of terrorists; international colonial powers, Zionists and Hindus are surrounding it, Drone attacks are in plenty, dialogues are being initiated but the terrorists were continuing their gory incidents, everyone from home and community to cities, provinces, provincial capitals are in the range of terrorism while Indian army was busy in violating the Line of Control. Uncertainty is prevailing in the country, people are in fear and harassment, criminals, extractors, and kidnappers have made the life of the people difficult. This is our motherland, protection of people and Pakistan is responsibility of us all. Therefore, seerat of Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.) is the beacon of light for us during Muharramul Haraam. This is the testing time and we will have to display unity and brotherhood by following the path of Hussainiyyat and make commitment to follow the following Code of Azadari in letter and spirit from first Muharram to 8th Rabiul Awwal i.e. Ayyam Aza-e-Hussaini so as to thwart the internal and external conspiracies of the enemies.

Meanwhile, announcing a 16-point Code of Azadari during his Press conference, the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said: Government may follow the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi Agreement in connection with taking out of Azadari processions; Muharram Azadari Cells may be set up at Interior Ministry, Ministry of Religious Affairs, Federal, Provincial (including Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas) and District levels and should be publicized through media so as to resolve the possible Azadari issues. Moreover, these Cells may keep close coordination with the Muharram Committees (Azadari Cells) of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya. These Cells should remain intact till 8 Rabiul Awwal; The sensitive cities may be handed over to the army, District administrations throughout the country may be directed to avoid creating fear and harassment amongst the Azadars, and organisers of Majalis and mourning processions so that they may complete the Azadari rites with honour and respect and no such order may be issued that may encroach upon the rights of anyone. Advance protective measures may be taken at all sensitive places during Majalis-e-Aza and Azadari processions. If, God forbid, any issue takes place, the processions may not be stopped rather help may be extended to conclude the same at their destinations with honour and respect; Special arrangements be made throughout the country at places of Majalis-e-Aza and the cleanliness and lighting arrangement be made en route procession. No power or gas and CNG load-shedding should be done; Strict implementation of the Anti-Terrorism Act may ensure and no one should be allowed to take law into his own hands. All types of biases may be disallowed; Noose around the banned groups may be tightened, coverage of banned groups on media should be stopped and people, politicians and rulers may also announce their hatred against them; The possible Azadari issues may be resolved amicable on local level. In any other case, the Central Muharram Committee (Azadari Cell) may be approached; The organisers of Majalis may take protective measures under self-help basis. They may arrange all necessary measures including the walk-through gates. People should remain fully alert, keep an eye on the situation around and immediately inform the administration if they notice any suspicious person or thing so as to thwart the nefarious designs of the miscreants; All Makatib may preach their beliefs in a positive manner and highlight the good deeds of the Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.); Ulema, waizeen and zakireen may give priority to integrity of the religion, the nation and the country; Political parties may discontinue all types of political activities and Azadars may give priority to Azadari over all other things; The holy month of Muharram is allocated to the everlasting sacrifices of Syed-us-Shuhada and his die-hard companions, therefore the electronic and print media may not only present the sacrifices of Shuhada-e-Karbala in an effective manner but also avoid indecent programmes and Munkiraat and radio and television may remain all types of music, dramas, and comedy programmes suspended during the Ashra-e-Muharram; Discipline and timings may be ensured during Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions and any step that may be against the spirit of Azadari may be avoided; Women may follow the seerat and character of Mukhadderat-e-Ismat and Taharat, Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar. All Makatib and Masalik should be respected and respect of all of them may be ensured; The organisers of Majalis may follow the Code of Azadari themselves and also make it binding on others; The powers that be may ensure practical implementation of this Code of Azadari from village to high level. Our cooperation under تعاونو علی البر و التقویٰ will continue.

Towards the conclusion of his Press conference, Agha Moosavi expressed the hope that the rulers, people and all institutions would follow the Code of Azadari in letter and spirit and will leave no stone unturned in its implementation.

Biggest reason behind promotion of extremism in the motherland Pakistan is illiteracy, ignorance and unemployment, declaration of Mukhtar Students “Azm-e-Mukhtar Tanzeemi Convention”

RAWALPINDI, October 28: The biggest reason behind promotion of extremism in the motherland Pakistan is illiteracy, ignorance and unemployment and the government should take steps to make every citizen of Pakistan literate, education budget may be increased and employment to the educated youth may be ensure. Any line of action given by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi will be followed in letter and spirit and all conspiracies of enemies of Islam and Pakistan will be thwarted by following the Hussaini spirit. This was stated in the declaration issued at the conclusion of country-wide “Azm-e-Mukhtar Tanzeemi Convention” organised by representative body of the students belonging to the Maktab-e-Tashih Mukhtar Students Organisation. Student representatives from all over the country participated in the convention during which Syed Aun Abbas Kazmi was elected Central President of Mukhtar Students Organisation for the next year.

The declaration presented by Mardan Ali Changezi expressed concern that three and four-pronged educational system is in place in the country in which no participation of the State is visible. The topics on the founders of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Iqbal have been taken out from the curricula books; religion has been totally taken out from the educational curricula whereas hatred and biases are promoted using the religion that provided food for thought to the nation and the country. Therefore, the declaration said, equal educational system should be introduced throughout the country that may be coherent with Islam and the Islamic Ideology, commensurate with the modern norms.

The declaration termed the funds allocated to education in the budge very low and demanded to allocate 25 per cent of the national budget instead. Condemning the ongoing terrorism in the country, the declaration lamented that banned parties were openly operating and government feels that they have fulfilled their responsibility by issuing a notification merely. It demanded implementation of the Anti-Terrorism Act in its true spirit. Terming increasing price hike a result of economic instability the declaration demanded from the government to set up an economic system based on the teachings of Islam instead of following the dictates of the World Bank and the IMF. The declaration termed developing relations with India prior to solution of Kashmir issue is tantamount to treachery and called upon the United Nations to implement its Resolution about Kashmir and Palestine like they did in case of Mashriqi Taimoor and Sudan. The declaration also strongly condemned atrocities being carried out in Bahrain and Burma.

The Chairman Mukhtar Students Organisation in his presidential address said the new generation is the asset of the nation and the country and there is need to take practical steps to avoid wasting this talent instead of raising hollow slogans. The newly elected President said that he will let no effort waste in promoting the supremacy of Islam and Pakistan, mission of ‘Wila’ and ‘Aza’ and for the rights of students while efforts will be made to achieve the objectives of the organisation.

Allama Basharat Hussain Imami read his paper on “Responsibilities of the Youth”, Allama Qamar Haider Zaidi on “Need of forming Mukhtar Students Organisation”, and Alhaj Syed Hassan Badar Hamdani presented his paper on the topic of the organisation. Other speakers included Raza Raza, Roohan Haider, Muhammad Hadi Hazarvi, Sibtain Ali, Hamid Ali, Zain Naqvi, Shabih Al-Hussaini, Asif Hussain Kazmi, Dr. N.H. Naqvi and M.H. Jafri.

Muslim Ummah is confronted with problems and difficulties owing to not following the sayings of Allah, Rasool (SAAW) and Ali Wali Ullah (A.S.), Moosavi on Youme Ghadir

ISLAMABAD, October 24: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the Muslim Ummah is confronted with problems and difficulties owing to not following the sayings of Allah, Rasool (SAAW) and Ali Wali Ullah (A.S.) while Pakistan has been turned into ‘Masailistan’, therefore there is need to attach ourselves with the Daman of Wilayat-e-Ali, Quran and Ahle Bait (A.S.) so as to avoid terrorism and ignorance. This was stated by him while addressing a delegation of elite from Kurram Agency Parachinar that called on him here at Al-Murtaza at the head of Alhaj Shabbir Hussain Toori Thursday at the beginning of Universal Hafta-e-Wilayat. Syed Ghazanfar Ali Shah, a leader of the TNFJ Provincial Council Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa told him on the occasion that different tribes of the Kurram Agency and dozens of villages have announced their joining in the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya while Alhaj Shabbir Hussain Toori expressed that Shiaan-e-Haider Karrar from Kurram Agency will support any line of action giving by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi in connection with the oncoming Muharramul Haram.

Agha Moosavi in his address on the occasion lamented that the Muslim rulers were inclined towards colonial powers instead of bowing down before the Zaat-e-Illahi but, he added, that all powers should keep in mind that the international satanic forces never strike a bargain of loss. He quoted the Amirul Momineen Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) as saying that our friends are simple while the enemy is wicket. At present, he said, America desires honourable exit from Afghanistan because it had confronted a huge defeat in Vietnam in the past.

The TNFJ chief said that the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who has been given mandate by the whole nation including the Maktab-e-Tashih but should file a case against country’s integrity and drone attacks with the ICC. He said today the Amnesty International has woke up saying that drone attacks are violation of international laws and why they kept a silence earlier? He said restoration of aid by America is optimistic because they will also need help in response. He said the biggest issues confronted by Pakistan are aggression, suicide blasts, drone attacks, target killing, extracting money, kidnapping for ransom and biggest of them all the monetary exploitation. On the other, he added, the biggest issue of the region pending resolution is Kashmir. He said it was funny that our rulers desire America to play the role of arbitrator in this case who is working to maintain the Indian supremacy in the region. He said that if our rulers are imbibed with the spirit of patriotism then they should make America understand that our issues are land and marine terrorism, and Indian violations in Siachen and the Control Line. He expressed surprise that why we hesitate in informing the world that India that had earlier divided Pakistan into two parts was bent upon breaking Pakistan further.

Agha Moosavi said that 18 Zilhaj is the day of announcement of Wilayat-e-Ali and completion of the religion while 24 Zilhaj is the day of Mobahila that reminds us of the victory Islam through the Holy Prophet (SAAW) and Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and this was the day when the Hazoor (SAAW) told the world that these are my Ahle Bait (A.S.) on which the books belonging to different fiqhs stand witness. He Hazoor-e-Akram (SAAW) has termed Quran and Itrat-e-Ahle Bait as invaluable things and guaranteed that they will not be misled if they attached to these two but the Ummah did not follow his saying in letter and spirit and thus the problems and difficulties.

There is need to follow the Zainabi (S.A.) character so as to achieve honour and dignity for the Islamic World, Moosavi on Youm-e-Sharika-tul-Hussain(as)

ISLAMABAD, October 22: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that there is need to follow the Zainabi (S.A.) character so as to achieve honour and dignity for the Islamic World and to put motherland Pakistan on road to progress. This was stated by him while addressing the Majlis Youm Sharikatul Hussain (S.A.) on Tuesday that was observed throughout the country with religious spirit, devotion and respect. Majalis-e-Aza were organised and Matmi processions were taken out in all the provinces including the Federal capital Islamabad.

Agha Moosavi expressed concern that today the whole humanity in general, and the Islamic World in particular is surrounded by Satanic forces, every part of the motherland Pakistan is hurt, Drone attacks, suicide blasts, terrorism, murder, arson, extracting money, kidnapping for ransom are going on unabated. He said the Asswah Syeda Zainab (S.A.) is the best example to follow to thwart the conspiracies of the Satanic forces who unveil the Yazidiyyat through her heart-rending khutbaat in the streets of Kufa and Shaam, and in the courts of Yazid and Ibne Ziad.

The TNFJ chief said that when Sharikatul Hussain Hazrat Binte Ali (S.A.) entered the Yazidi court, the people present in the court saw that the prisoners are hand-cuffed and chained but their faces were brimming with nobility. Yazid (Laeen) had kept the holy heads of the Shuhada-e-Karbala in front of him. Roman Ambassador asked that the head placed in big plate belongs to whom so that he may tell it to Qaiser-e-Room and he may also share this happiness. Yazid told him that this head belongs to Hussain Ibne Fatima Binte Muhammad. The Ambassador asked what was the name of his father? Yazid told him that Rasool-e-Khuda’s (SAAW) cousin Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S). The Ambassador shouted that down with your constitution, my constitution is better than yours because my father is the grandson of Hazrat Daud. There is distance of many generations between me and Daud but even today the followers of Daud respect me. The donkey Hazrat Eisa rode, a church has been constructed on the footprint of that donkey and people offer its Ziarat and you killed the son of your Prophet (SAAW) while there is distance of only a daughter between Rasool (SAAW) and Hussain (A.S.). What type of this religion is yours? (reference Baharaul Anwaar).

It is stated that Yazid tried to kill that Christian Ambassador so as to stop him from defaming him on his return to Rome. The Ambassador when sensed Yazid’s intentions, said he has seen the Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) in his dream last night and he has given him good news of heaven. He said I was surprised on it but now it seems to be become true. By saying this he recited the Kalmah, hugged the holy head of Hussain (A.S.) and kissed it weeping until he was killed. It is stated that the dry lips of Hussain’s (A.S.) head kept on reciting لا حول و لا قوۃ الا باللہ العلی العظیم till his murder.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Hazrat Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.) strongly criticized Yazid for this indecent acts and unveiled the fake veils from the faces of Yazid and his forefathers in her address.

Saudi Arabia should follow Imam Kaaba khutba first, do not impose their ideologies on others, says Moosavi on Eid Message

ISLAMABAD, October 15: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Mufti-e-Azam Saudi Arabia Shaikh Abdel Aziz Bin Abdullah Al-Shaikh’s khutba was laudable which all Muslim States including Saudi Arabia and Pakistan should follow. All Muslims should unite against attack on democracy in Egypt, oppression against people in Bahrain, American pullout from Afghanistan, continued terrorism in Iraq and Pakistan, and Drone attacks. Mufti-e-Azam should bind the Saudi rulers to fulfill the rights of all Makatib on the basis of equality and do not impose their ideologies on others, all Makatib in Saudi Arabia may be allowed to perform their religious rites according to their own faith. The Muslims are deprived of even kissing the net of the Roza-e-Rasool (SAAW). Had the Khutba Hajjatul Widah delivered by Rasool-e-Khuda Muhammad Mustafa (SAAW) was implemented in letter and spirit then the Muslims would not have been banking on colonial powers for all their resources. The resources of the Islamic World should be utilised on Muslims instead of keeping the same in Zionist banks and American armaments. These views were expressed by him in his message on the occasion of Eidul Azha.

Agha Moosavi said Muslims lost their dignity by duplicity in their words and deeds. He said Islam does not allow imposing one ideology on others. Imam-e-Ka’aba has been delivering the Khutba-e-Hajj for the last three decades. The country he belongs to boasts to be champion of Muslims but unfortunately the residents there have to freedom to follow their ideology even during Umrah and Hajj. No book is allowed in Saudi Arabia while they forcibly hand over their books in millions to the intending Hajis and Zaireen.

The TNFJ chief said that Imam-e-Ka’aba should also look into the fact that who is supporting dictatorship in Egypt and who went against democracy, who greeted army and announced to help them, who sent terrorists in the garb of militants. Does razing the shrines of forefathers of the Rasool (SAAW), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) and Ajwaaj-e-Mutahiraat (R.A.) not tantamount to imposing their beliefs on others while Anbia-e-Karaam never imposed their desires on other.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi called on the Saudi government to release the innocent people jailed in Saudi jails, stop razing holy shrines to ground, give up support to those who have targeted the shrines of religious elders, Sahaba Karaam including Khalid Bin Waleed, Hijr Bin Aadi, grand-daughter of Rasool-e-Khuda in Libya, Yemen, Egypt, and Syria. The Mufti-e-Aza should first create large-heartedness in the Saudi hearts so that they may announce reconstruction of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moallah, avoid teasing Zaireen of the Roza Mubarik and allow installing fancy Zarih-e-Mubarik on the Roza-e-Rasool (SAAW). He said the Saudis should put their own house in order first. If the Mufti-e-Azam succeeds in correcting the Saudi Arabia then other Muslim States will take a lesson from it., he added.

Educational drawback is the biggest reason for the downwardness of the Islamic World, Moosavi addresses ‘Majlis Baqar Al-Uloom’ (as)

ISLAMABAD, October 13: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that educational drawback is the biggest reason for the downwardness of the Islamic World therefore there is the need to give foremost priority to promote education so as to get the Muslim Ummah rid of colonial shackles. The double standards and sectional system was inherited from the Britishers.

He said Pakistan should introduce equal system of education so that every child of the nation could be decorated with education. The conspiracy of Rome’s Christians against Kalma-e-Tyyaba was thwarted courtesy knowledge and awareness of Imam Muhammad Baqar (A.S.). After petrol, the excessive increase in the electricity rates is excess with the oppressed nations. The shrines of Hazrat Imam Baqar (A.S.), Ummahatul Momineen (RA), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) and Rasool’s daughter Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) are lying in dilapidated condition. The 9th Zilhaj will be observed as Youm Safeer-e-Hussainiyyat to mark the Shahadat of Hazrat Muslim Ibne Aqeel (A.S.). These views were expressed by him while addressing the ‘Majlis Baqar Al-Uloom’.

Agha Moosavi said the live nations and religions never forget their heroes and Mashaheer rather make their future better in the light of their pious lives and kiss success by following in their footsteps. One of those personalities is Muhammad Bin Ali known as Baqar Al-Uloom who quenches the thirst of uncountable through his knowledge and wisdom including Muhammad Ibne Muslim, Jabar Hajfi, Zararah Ibne Aaeen, and Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq (A.S.).

The TNFJ chief said the Imam (A.S.) faced five dictators and tyrant rulers in his era who were tough with the Masoom (A.S.) as a result of which he was confronted with utmost difficulties but despite all those difficulties he promoted knowledge and wisdom utilizing all his energies and ultimately kissed Shahat on 7 Zilhaj 114 Hijri in the age of 57 making it clear on the world that we can kiss Shahadat but cannot let anyone cause any harm to the religion and Shariat.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that today the whole country is confronted with the oppression of State and non-State actors, the whole country is surrounded by oppression, injustice, unemployment, price hike, terrorism and Drone attacks. The countrymen are facing internal and external threats, Allah is not pleased with us as cyclones, floods, and earthquakes and extensively hitting us but we were not turning towards Allah despite that. He said the only solution to get rid of these problems and difficulties is to turn towards Allah and seek forgives from the Zaat-e-Illahi giving up the wrong path.

Uswa-e-Abuzar Ghaffari (R.A.) is the best example for the powers that be to follow who accepted exile but did not bow down before oppression and brutality, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, October 11: The Patron-in-Chief of Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the rulers should perform in line with the constitution keeping personal and party interests and all types of reservations aside, suitable environment should be provided to the Parliament, Judiciary and the Administration and no institution should interfere in one other’s work so that the honour of the country is heightened. Uswa-e-Abuzar Ghaffari (R.A.) is the best example for the powers that be to follow who accepted exile but did not bow down before oppression and brutality. These views were expressed by him while addressing the Majlis-e-Abuzar organized at Al-Murtaza Islamabad Friday to mark the Shahadat of Sahabi-e-Rasool Hazrat Abuzar Ghaffari (R.A.).

Agha Moosavi also announced to observe Youm Baqar Al-Uloom on Sunday Zilhaj 7 in connection with the Shahadat of fifth Tajdar-e-Imamat Hazrat Imam Muhammad Baqar (A.S.). He said in Islam, justice and fair-play have been considered the Asaas of religion and Shariat and at present the basic reason for the current crises is lack of justice and fair-play and the biggest deed of the Hadiyan-e-Rah-e-Khuda in the universe had been restoration of justice and fair-play that is near to Taqwah.

The TNFJ chief made it clear that objective of creation of the being is Bandagi while objective of the Bandagi is Zuhd-o-Taqwah. He said the Holy Prophet (SAAW) while stressing the need of justice and fair-play had stated that “Ali Ibne Abi Talib, is the best decision makers from amongst you.” His Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and Sahaba Kubaar have rendered host of sacrifices for restoration of justice and fair-play amongst which the name of Hazrat Abuzar Ghaffari is highlighted to whom Hazoor-e-Pak (SAAW) had advised that “Oh, Abuzar, people are unaware of two blessings, one is physical health while the other is spare time. He then advised to value five things i.e. (1) Think young age a blessing before becoming old because when old one cannot enjoy Bandagi; (2) Value health before illness as one can enjoy Bandagi when healthy; (3) Value affluence before poverty; (4) Value spare time before your busy schedule so that you can perform Bandagi with a satisfied heart; (5) Value life before you die because you could not do anything after you die.

Agha Moosavi said that all sayings of the Nabi (SAAW) while addressing Abuzar (R.A.) are an advice for all rulers and leaders because our rulers are delaying decisions with inability to decide in time. APC was held about a month ago but no one knows what will happen, he added. He lamented that terrorism, Drone attacks, kidnapping for ransom, target killing, increasing prices of petroleum products and articles of daily use are making the poor poorer while terrorists are doing the rest.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said all Makatib including the Maktab-e-Tashih had given heavy mandate to the present government, therefore they are under the obligation to take practical steps in resolving country’s problems, particularly terrorism, corruption, load-shedding and price hike on priority basis, otherwise they will lose the confidence of the people.

TNFJ High level meeting resolutions

ISLAMABAD, October 07: The two-day high level meeting of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan presided over by Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi concluded here Monday after adopting different resolutions on important national and international issues. The meeting gave final touches to the policy viz. oncoming Muharramul Haram which will be announced by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya through a Press conference. According to the Central Secretary of the Tehreek Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi, the resolutions adopted at the meeting expressed concern over the problems confronted by the Islamic World and Pakistan. A resolution criticized the dual standards of the Muslim rulers terming the same as the basic reason for no solution of the Kashmir and Palestine issues in accordance with the United Nations Resolutions who along with the international Muslims organisation played the role of silent spectators after the 9/11 episode rather supported the colonial powers in carrying out aggression against Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Tunis and now in Syria.

Another resolution said that continuation of Drone attacks despite raising the issue by the Pakistan’s Prime Minister at the United Nations General Assembly provides food for thought and demanded of the government to file the case with the International Court of Justice and also called upon the United Nations to get the Drone attacks stopped and compensation of the losses incurred to Pakistan and Pakistanis be paid that these attacks so far have caused. The resolution demanded from the government to present the proofs of Indian involvement in insurgencies in Balochistan to the international organisations and take steps for the closure of Indian Consulates in Afghanistan that are the hub of terrorism. Yet another resolution demanded of the government to choose the heads of all State institutions formed for Islamisation including Islamic Council of Ideology, Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and Federal Shariat Courts to all Islamic Makatib turn by turn.

The meeting resolved to observe Youm-e-Abuzar on 5 Zilhaj, Youm Baqar Al-Uloom on 7 Zilhaj, Youm Safeer-e-Hussainiyyat on 9 Zilhaj, Youm Sharikatul Hussain on 16 Zilhaj, International Hafta-e-Wilayat from 18-24 Zilhaj, and Youm Nazool-e-Hal Atta on 25 Zilhaj.

The rulers should talk with the extremists and India like a lion and not in a submissive manner, Moosavi addresses TNFJ high level meeting

ISLAMABAD, October 06: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that there is no harm in initiating dialogue with extremists to root out terrorism from the country and restore peace because it is a historic fact that wars always culminate in dialogue. The rulers should talk with the extremists and India like a lion and not in a submissive manner. We had said at the beginning of the terrorism that Taliban should not play the role of oppressors; the dream of restoring a durable peace in the country could not come true without handling the banned groups with an iron hand. In the light of the saying of Murtaza (A.S.) we are in the habit of opposing every oppressor and supporting every oppressed. Case against Drone attacks may be filed in the International Court of Justice. The statements of the Indian Prime Minister have made the Aman Ki Asha and bid to better relations suspicious. We guarantee that all occupied Muslim areas can be achieved if the dilapidated shrines of forefathers of the Rasool (SAAW), Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.) and Ashab (R.A.) are restored with dignity otherwise the whole Muslim Ummah would confront more problems. We are not protectors of Azadari rather it is Azadari that provides guarantee to us, Sharait and Shi’ite. The government has been apprised of taking necessary and practical steps including setting up of Muharram Control Rooms and the policy in connection with the oncoming Muharramul Haram will be announced through a Press conference. These views were expressed by him while delivering his presidential address at the two-day high level meeting of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan at the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih here on Sunday. Delegates from Federal capital Islamabad, all the four provinces, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and abroad attended the meeting.

Agha Moosavi said that the purpose of heinous game of terrorism being played in different Muslim States including Pakistan to divert the attention of the Muslim Ummah from real issues. He said the international powers desires to give this heinous game of murder and arson a Maktabi, groupism, lingual and sectarian colour to as to fulfill the international agenda while we still follow our long-standing point of view that a terrorist keeps no religion, Maktab or a country, he is only a terrorist and should only be seen and tackled in that context. He said when a dictator announced to turn the motherland into a Maktabi State in 1979, the TNFJ was formed in that reaction because this country is the fruit of combined sacrifices and joint struggle of both the recognised schools of thought therefore the country could not be turned into a sectarian State in our presence. As a result of our peaceful policy and campaign, he added, the official religion of the State is Islam under the Article 2 of the Constitution and not any sect the explanation of which is left to Sunnis and Shias according to their fiqh.

The TNFJ chief said that thousands of Sunnis and Shias came out for a peaceful agitation from the Hussaini Mohaz against the amendment made by the Governor Punjab in the Article 30 (3) of the Police Act as a result of which May 21, 1985 peace agreement was signed that even today guarantees independently taking out all religious processions including Azadari and Eid-i-Milad processions. He said that when anti-State elements could not bear the exemplary Sunni-Shia unity they introduced Private Shariat Bill in the Senate which we rejected by saying that there is no need of any such Bill in the presence of 1973 Constitution. He said there is need to tighten the noose around extremist terrorist groups banned officially and to impose ban on their activities they are performing with new name so as to make the dream of restoring durable peace in the country true.

Agha Moosavi said there is nothing in Islam except Zarb-e-Yadullahi and Sajda-e-Shabbiri which are the other names of Wila-e-Ali and Aza-e-Hussain and these are our standards of friendship and enmity. He said we would like to make it clear that neither our forefathers bargained on the basic beliefs and ideologies of Islam nor we or our future generations are going to do so. He said the address of the Prime Minister in the United Nations General Assembly and his meeting with his Indian counterpart could not be made result-oriented unless Drone attacks and Indian-sponsored terrorism are stopped.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi termed the government steps after the Supreme Court’s suo motto in withdrawing the notification of increasing electricity rates a good step. He said the rates of items of daily use are already high and are becoming unbearable for the people, therefore, the government should take practical steps to get the people already stung by the terrorism rid of price hike and fight out poverty.

All types of materialistic ills, biases and terrorism could be rooted out by following the seerat of Imam Ali Raza (A.S.), says Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, September 28: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that all types of materialistic ills, biases and terrorism could be rooted out by following the seerat of Imam Ali Raza (A.S.). This was stated by him while addressing a Majlis held at Al-Murtaza Saturday in connection with the ‘International Ayyam-e-Aza’ being observed from 20-23 Ziqa’ad marking the Shahadat of Hazrat Imam Ali Bin Musa Al-Raza (A.S.).

Agha Moosavi said at present the whole world is surrounded in problems and difficulties, satanic forces have gripped us from all around, one country is being stung after the other, Pakistan is entangled in problems and difficulties right from the beginning, tyranny brought to fore time and again in the garb of presidential, parliamentary form of government, as dictatorship and sometimes even in the garb of democracy. He said many anchors question that whether more damage was caused in the wars imposed on Pakistan or in terrorism? Perhaps that have forgotten that in 1971, we had lost one half of the country and no loss can match to that damage.

The TNFJ chief said loss of trillions of rupees has been caused, economy has collapsed, the economic jugular vein of the country Karachi is being hit time and again, Quaid’s residency was blasted in Balochistan, no day passes without a Drone attack, incidents of murder and arson in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, incidents of abduction for ransom, extracting money, murders and arson are the order of the day in Punjab, the educational institutions have become the abode of terrorists, even the capital cities have not been spared but thanks God, Pakistan still exist despite all this non-sense. He said the ghost of terrorism overcame Pakistan during Zia era but we kept Pakistan safe despite bearing huge losses in the process that indicates our practical unity.

Agha Moosavi said that despite ignoring 142 parties in the APC, all have supported the decisions taken by a few parties because the wars also end at mutual dialogue. But at present, he added, both parties are confused as incident of blast at Peshawar church and Upper Dir incident have created uncertain situation. On the other hand, heavy earthquake in Balochistan has shattered the whole country and it is time to pray by bowing down in front of Bargah-e-Khudawandi seeking forgiveness for our sins. He said our rulers are welcoming India for Aman Ki Asha, meetings and dialogue but they should be aware of the Hindu Banya’s nature as they press their own point of view and never accept that of others as everyone knows that they are involved in incidents of terrorism in Karachi and Balochistan but they would never accept it.

The TNFJ chief said there is no need to take permission from ulema and politicians who are pressing hard to go into dialogue with the militants as people desire to see the country become a hub of peace. He said the Prime Minister should openly talk to Americans during his current visit that we are undergoing aggression, not a single issue of the Islamic World has been resolved since the creation of the United Nations 68 years ago because they are playing as agents to the colonial powers and their dual character is no more a secret. They have decided the issues of Mashriqi Taimoor and Sudan but no one is ready to talk about Kashmir while the Indian General has himself admitted that they have earned the support of politicians by bribing them to keep the Held Kashmir with India.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said there is need to exercise wisdom, seriousness and patience so as to save Pakistan and to turn it in a hub of peace. He said Hazrat Imam Ali Raza (A.S.) has to face six rulers including Mansoor, Mehdi Abbasi, Hadi Abbasi, Haroon-ur-Rashid, Muhammad Amin and Mamoon Abbasi. Apparently, Mamoon used to give him utmost respect but he was a hypocrite from within and he ultimately got him martyred through poison under a secret conspiracy.

TNFJ condemns the blast in the bus carrying Secretariat employees at Charsadda

ISLAMABAD, September 27: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while terming the blast in the bus carrying Secretariat employees at Charsadda Road Peshawar barbarism has expressed grave grief. In a statement issued here Friday, he said keeping Pakistan busy in terrorism is international agenda and rooting the incidents of murder, arson and terrorism is not possible until this agenda completes. He said the enemy forces are fighting their war on our soil through which they desire to keep of people’s attention away from real issues faced by their people.

He said like in the past, full efforts are being made to thwart the current APC also and the terrorist elements desire to take maximum advantage of uncertainty prevailing in the rulers and the politicians. He said APC was the gathering of a few parties that was accepted by all parties in national interest but even the ink of those decisions was still wet when these were responded with Drone attacks and gory Shahadat of Army General Sanaullah Khan and other officer in Upper Dir, Church was targeted in Peshawar killing dozens of innocent people and a large number of wounded left crying in hospital, police jawans were targeted in Pishin and Dam engineers were targeted in Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa.

Agha Moosavi said that our rulers are optimistic that they will control terrorism and overcome all problems without any hurdle after the APC while relief helicopter was also targeted in the quake-hit area in Balochistan but by the Grace of God all relief workers including the Pakistan Army General remained safe. He lamented that 52 banned groups were roaming about freely and they are getting attention of the anchors at TV channels, they are being interviewed, asked questions and are asked to present their analysis. He said enemy was set to destabilise Pakistan through anarchy and the respect our prime minister got in his recent visit to the United Nations can be gauged from the fact that Obama did not even bother to give him audience while Indian prime minister gave him after heavy lobbying. He said we cannot get rid of difficulties unless we stand on our own feet, get our strength recognised, break the begging bowl, give up contradiction in our words and deeds.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the people desire to see the country a hub of peace as they have voted the rulers in power to root out terrorism whether they adopt the path of a dialogue or deal the terrorists and criminals with an iron hand. He said the ambassadors of the countries involved in acts of terrorism may be summoned to the Foreign Office to register our protest while the Pakistani ambassador abroad should be giving comprehensive briefing in this regards. He said all leaders should keep in mind that our perpetual enemy desires to see Pakistan destabilised therefore all patriotic forces should bring such an agenda to the fore that may thwart every conspiracy and mischief against the motherland so as to turn Pakistan into a strong citadel of Islam.

Moosavi addresses mourning meeting of ulema and elite in connection with the three-day mourning of the Peshawar church incident

ISLAMABAD, September 24: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has made it clear that Islam is the preacher of peace and tranquillity and condemns all types of biases and terrorism, the deed of any single person could not be declared the deed of the whole Maktab, the heinous game of terrorism is the war of groups being staged at the Pakistani soil with the support of foreign powers. Those who fell victim to the Peshawar Church incident are the sons of this soil that is why all religious and political parties, and Federal and provincial governments including Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya has announced a three-mourning to express solidarity with the Christian community. This was stated by him while addressing the TNFJ’s mourning meeting of ulema and elite in connection with the three-day mourning of the Peshawar incident taken place on Tuesday.

Agha Moosavi said the satanic forces were attacking mosques, Imambargahs, temples, churches, places of worship and almost every department of life for quite long that indicates that there is no Maktabi or group conflict in motherland and all those residing in Pakistan share their happiness and grief. He said the ray of hope created by the recent APC vanished with the Shahadat of high military officers, attacks on Imambargah in Karachi, Masjid Pir Anwar in Peshawar and the latest the suicide blasts and Pakistan Church in Peshawar. On the other side, he added, doctors like Abd Munaaf are also being abducted. The whole country is mourning the Peshawar incident, he added.

The TNFJ chief said that any wrong action at this time would benefit the enemy because protest the basis right but it should be peaceful as the incident of jalao-gherao cause national loss. He said the doors for dialogue should always remain open as the problems are resolved by making friends and not foes while option of taking action always remain open if the doors of dialogue are closed. He called upon the people to remain alert and get themselves rid of terrorist banned groups, the government should deal the banned groups with iron hand because they are roaming around with news names rather are also seen dominating the media. He said not condemning the acts of terrorism openly by some semi-religious political parties provides food for thought.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the Peshawar incident is a tool to sabotage the Prime Minister’s visit to America, therefore the government should take serious steps to turn the country into a hub of peace as the nation is ready to extend cooperation for rooting out terrorism from the country. He said every citizen of the country is respectable therefore no one should be targeted with a sense of deprivation and inferiority complex.

Moosavi condemns the suicide blast at Pakistan Church Peshawar; announces three-day mourning to express solidarity with Christian community

ISLAMABAD, September 22: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has strongly condemned the suicide blast and heavy toll and loss at Pakistan Church Peshawar and announced a three-day mourning to express solidarity with Christian community. In his reaction issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih, he said Islam guarantees honour and dignity of non-Muslims and the white portion in the green Pakistan flag is the sign of respect for minorities. He said attack on the Christian place of worship is actually an attack on the Islamic teachings and Pakistan’s ideological Asaas as powers averse to Pakistan are trying to sabotage Prime Minister’s visit to America by trying to prove that non-Muslim are unsafe in Pakistan and thus trying to weaken the Drone attacks’ case of Pakistan at the Security Council. The enemy is playing every game here and had the rulers and politicians implemented the Anti-Terrorism laws without considering the personal and party interests then such types of gory incidents could have been avoided.

Agha Moosavi said every citizen of the motherland and Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh Jafariya equally share the grief of the Christian community because under ??? ????? ??? ???, every human being has been made respectable. He said the Peshawar Church incidents is a conspiracy to pass the message to the international world that Pakistan is an unsafe State where there is no writ of the government because mosques, Imambargahs, churches, educational institutions, hospitals, temples, markets, funeral processions and even the security institutions have been targeted.

The TNFJ chief said that in response to peace-loving decisions of the APC held on the invitation of the Prime Minister, the innocent citizens are being made target of day-light suicide attacks, kidnapping, and target killings that provides food for thought. He said the whole nation makes a heartfelt appeal to the powers that be not to delay action against the black monster of terrorism, the Prime Minister by raising the issue of terrorism in his address to the United Nations General Assembly should tell them that foreign agencies are involved in continued aggression against Pakistan, therefore concrete steps may be taken to check terrorism because if Pakistan is there, we are here otherwise we are nothing.

Agha Moosavi while highlighting the rights of the non-Muslims in the Islamic society said that Quran gives commandment not to give up justice on the basis of enmity with any nation rather orders to ensure justice to them because it is the justice that is most near to Taqwah. He said there is a saying of the Holy Prophet (SAAW) that goes that Islam guarantees rights of non-Muslims. Another place, the Holy Prophet (SAAW) has said that keep in mind that any Muslim who encroaches upon the rights of any non-Muslim or commits atrocity against him, puts extra responsibility on him or snatches anything from him, I will stand in the Court of Allah as a lawyer of that non-Muslim against such Muslims.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the protection of citizens is the responsibility of the Islamic government, and there is no discrimination in it on the basis of Muslim or non-Muslim. Similarly the protection of life and property of non-Muslims is also the responsibility of the Muslim States. He said Islam declares insult, bashing, illegal murder and calling names of non-Muslim and provides protection to their economic rights, they can adopt any profession they like and they are allowed religious freedom to perform their rites, obligations and relations independently. Moreover, the State is also under the obligation to honour the agreements made to them, he concluded.

The chairmanship of the IIC should be given to all schools of thought, the national institution must not be sacrificed for political gains – Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, September 21: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the Ideology Council has been turned into Ijtehad Council to politicize the Islamic Ideology Council. Are its members placed at the status of Ijtehad? If the applicant would be declared cognizable to death sentence on proving the crime of blasphemy then what the Muftis of the Ideology Council would give Fatwa on setting the terrorists free owing to weak witnesses and their release in those cases? He expressed these views during a meeting with the office-bearers of Supreme Shia Ulema Board here at Al-Murtaza.

Agha Moosavi while commenting on the recent decision of the Islamic Ideology Council asked how many Council members are placed at the status of Ijtehad? He made it clear that objective of the Islamic Ideology Council was to lay down recommendations for setting up Islamic society and to fulfil their obligation to transform the existing laws into Islamic framework. Therefore the Islamic Advisory Council was created under Section 204 of the 1962 Constitution under the leadership of Justice Abu Saleh Muhammad Akram and after him its leadership was handed over to Allama Alauddin Siddiqui. In the 1973 Constitution, there was room to set up Islamic Ideology Council and whereas the directives to form Islamic Ideology Council were stated in this as well as the reference of Islamic Council was also given making it clear that it means that there would be Islamic Ideology Council and the number of its members would be from 8 to 20.

The TNFJ chief said that it was decided that all schools of thought would be given representation. He asked whether the present members fulfil the constitutional requirement. Whether the representative organisations of the two main schools of thought Ahle Sunnat and Ahle Tasheyyo verified and approved any of these members. He said there is consensus on the punishment of blasphemy but what is the purpose of giving death sentence to the complainant who fails to prove this crime? He said the chairman of the IIC always belonged to a particular school of thought while almost all members are appointed by every government under political consideration. Similarly, the present members were the blue-eyed persons of the previous government and their representation was not verified by any representative organisation of any recognised school of thought. He said the present IIC members could be called Sunni, Shia, Barelvi, Ahle Hadees but they are not representatives of their respective Makatib.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi appealed the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take immediate suo moto notice and investigate that how many Mujtahid-e-Mutliq and Mujtahid-e-Mutjazi are amongst the present IIC members? Moreover whether they fulfil the criteria of IIC conditions? If not so then action may be taken against them forthwith.

UN should take action against the United States for providing chemical weapons to the Syrian rebels, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, September 15: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Russia has fulfilled her obligation of friendship with Syria. Had the Soviet Union not broken at the American desire then the Muslim States of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, and Sudan would have remained intact. The United Nations should take action against the United States for providing chemical weapons to the Syrian rebels, while similar action may also be taken against India and Israel. Why those who are creating hue and cry over the destruction of Buddha’s statues in Bamyan are silent on the desecration of signs and shrines of the Mashaheer-e-Islam. The United Nations Security Council should ensure protection of Muslim holy places in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syrian, Jordan, Iran, Egypt and Palestine because we can bear everything but could not bear the desecration of signs and shrines of our Mashaheer-e-Islam. This was stated by him while talking to elite from Islamabad.

Agha Moosavi said we pray for the APC to be result-oriented but the decision taken by them could not be useful without addressing the reasons behind terrorism. He asked that if Drone attacks are the reason of terrorism then what were the reasons behind terrorist activities prior to Drone attacks? Drone attacks are killing innocent Pakistani people and armed forces besides destruction country’s property. The operation being carried out in Karachi should be made justifiable and reservations of different sections of society should be addressed and mandate of the parties representing the people should be honoured. The policy adopted by the government with reference to staging the APC increased anarchy instead of creating unity. Not taking the representatives of Makatib while formulating most important national policy is tragic as they all equally participated in making the country good and they equally sacrificed their lives for country’s defence. Sacrifices are being made to push the Maktab-e-Tashih behind in State affairs and our positive policies should not be taking as our weakness. A high level meeting would be summoned in October to lay down the policy for Maktab-e-Tashih.

The TNFJ chief said if all countries started doing whatever they wanted at their free will and started violating the United Nations and the Security Council charter will like America then it will become very difficult for the United Nations to survive and it would become worse than the League of the Nations. He said every country, person and organisation that has a little bit of conscience protested against attack of Syria. The Pope avoided supporting to target Syria, Congress postponed its resolution while the United Nations openly stated that the militants also used chemical weapons. He questioned that who provided chemical weapons to the militants? Are the countries providing chemical weapons will also be asked to destroy their chemical weapons and whether similar action will be taken against them as is being taken against Syria and whether the chemical weapons present in America would also be destroyed? He said if the Muslim World desires to get rid of colonial shackles then they would have to achieve the right to veto.

Agha Moosavi said that it was unfortunate for Pakistan that Big Satan America used to misuse its rulers and our rulers were easily used and are still being used resulting the decline after decline in the motherland Pakistan. He lamented that out of 254 registered political parties only 12 were invited to the APC and the rest were ignore. Some those parties were also ignored that have their presence in the Parliament while on the contrary single-seat parties were invited instead. Similarly, parties representing Masalik and Makatib were also ignored. He said the APC was summoned but the chief ministers were entrusted to carry out the job; if they had to done this then why they had summoned the APC?

The TNFJ chief called upon the Chief Justice the as he takes suo moto notice of every incident, then he should also take notice of terrorism that began in the Zia era and is going sky high now. He should set up a tribunal to know the reasons behind terrorism and take strict action against those who are playing ‘holi’ with the blood of the innocent. He said that when a representative delegation of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya met the UNESCO representatives they took the stance that protection of Islamic signs is not included in their purview. He said the then why these organisation cry hoarse on the desecration of Bhudha’s statue, it proves that the game of destruction of Muslim signs is being staged in the connivance of international organisations. He expressed his concern that the signs of Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) are being wiped out speedily in the name of expansion with a motive to wipe out all signs of Islam, although expansion could have been carried out even by saving their signs.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the Maktab-e-Tashih has always played the role of the advance force in bettering Pakistan. The Shia’an-e-Haider Karrar wholly participated whenever the wounded democracy was restored in the country but conspiracies are being hatched to leave the Maktab-e-Tashih behind in all State affairs. He said the central session of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya has been summoned in October keeping in view the national and international situation in which delegates from within and without will participate and important decisions will be taken.

Pakistani rulers lack power of decision-making; dual policy of the agent Arab States unveiled through their support to dictatorship in Egypt, Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, September 10: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said the rulers lack power of decision-making and it seems the APC was summoned on the indication of surrendering arms because it was decided in the August 22 meeting of the Defence Committee of the Cabinet. May Allah bring good fruits of this APC and it may mark an end to terrorism and restore peace. The dual policy of the agent Arab States has been unveiled through their support to dictatorship in Egypt, overthrowing of democracy, raining bullets on protesting demonstrators. Those who are sending militants laced with armaments and chemical weapons and offering to foot the bill of American expenditure for war against Syrian government should be shameful. Pakistan is being punished for being a frontline ally against war of terror. Colonial agents are sitting in Afghanistan and are causing harm to the motherland Pakistan. Zardari who is boasting of completing a five-year term has damaged the country and he will have to answer Allah, Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Athaar (A.S.) for causing irreparable loss to the country and to the Maktab of Jafar Ibne Muhammad (A.S.). These views were expressed by him while talking to the members of the TNFJ committee that has recently toured Sindh.

Agha Moosavi said none of the nations has the right to be termed a big nation or a Millat on the basis of their size and number of weapons but on the basis of seerat and character. He said the Great Satan considers itself the biggest power and claimant of a singular status in the elite society. Its policies, however, contradict its claims and have unveiled the reality of the so-call high character. He expressed concern that Drone attacks, blast, suicide attacks and target killings are going on unabated in the country while a British minister and an American journal has clearly stated that Pakistan is the most dangerous country. He said if it is so then the colonial powers are involved in extracting money, abduction for ransom, Drone attacks, suicide attacks, and separatist slogans in Balochistan. He lamented that the Arab League has played the worst role in the whole episode instead of saving the Arab World from the colonial conspiracies.

The TNFJ chief said that all Makatib including Maktab-e-Tashih were very hopeful after the new set-up took over reins of power in the motherland but the issues are still the same and nations is still receiving the terrorism and Drone attacks are gifted despite tall claims from the government otherwise. He said the government adopted an indifferent style in inviting some parties and ignoring others. If they had invited some parties out of the Parliament then why they have ignored the recognised schools of Fiqh-e-Hanafia and Fiqh-e-Jafariya as both these Makatib are the regular targets of terrorism.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the Prime Minister in his address to the nation of August 19 had invited the extremist elements to dialogue that was considered as declaration of war by the extremists. He said a newly formed party was given extraordinary importance in the APC and dialogue with this new party in the presence of the opposition leader pose a question mark. He said the rulers and the politicians should learn a lesson from the previous All Parties Conferences. He stressed the need of taking steps with sincerity of purpose so as to turn Pakistan into ‘Gulistan’ and ‘Bostaan’ and the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya offers full cooperation if such steps are taken.
