Those who are threatening to blockade Islamabad shouldn't forget Gham e Hussain (A.S.) - Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, October 11: Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, while talking to media in the central Zuljinah procession in Islamabad taken from Jamia Al-Murtaza, G-9, said that those who are hurling threats to close Islamabad by forgetting the grieve of Nawasa-e-Rasool (A.S.) should not display their ignorance with the Rasool (SAAW). Agha Moosavi said that Hussain (A.S.) does not belong to any particular Maktab but to the whole of humanity. He said ignoring the Azadari programs by the Federal Interior Minister is tragic. Interior Ministers till Rehman Maik used to participate in the processions of Azadari and Meelad un Nabi. For the last 21 years, it has happened for the first time that the interior Ministry did not established Muharram Control Rooms. All requirements were not fulfilled while replacing National Crisis Cell with the NACTA. He called upon the Ministry of Interior to set up Control Rooms in the Ministry to operate from Muharram to Milad-e-Mustafa and connected with the TNFJ’s Muharram Committee Azadari Cell. Action must be ensured on National Action Plan in the letter and spirit and proscribed organizations must be clutched with iron hands. Names of innocent people must be removed from the lists of forth schedule, Haider e Karrar is the hero of all Muslims, Nara e Haidery that was prohibited in the Pak army by a dictator, must be restored. Moodi’s conspiracies cannot be thwarted without strengthening internal peace and harmony. He also called upon the international organizations to take notice of restrictions imposed on Azadari and trampling of human rights in Indian-occupied Kashmir. He said the tenure of service for Chief of the Army Staff may be extended up to 4 or 5 years. He said this while talking to the media during the mourning procession of 8 Muharram ul Haram to commemorate the eternal sacrifice of Imam Hussain (A.S), his companions held in the federal capital Islamabad that was brought out from Masjid o Imam bargah Jamiatul Murtaza G-9/4. Dozens of Matami organizations and thousands of Azadars participated in the procession. Agha Moosavi said that only the poor people must not be arrested to do fill in the blanks but rangers operation must be extended to Punjab and Islamabad. Forth schedule is not being used against banned groups rather other organizations are being victimized through it. No religion or law including Islam punishes before committing the crime. We are cooperating with the government however; government is not fulfilling its responsibilities. In response to a question, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Azadari programs will continue from 1st Muharram to 8 Rabi ul Awal. Those talking of closing Islamabad do not know that even the Chehlum of the grandson of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) has not arrived yet. Will they do the same in case their own loved one dies? He said that the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (A.S) cannot be confined to any particular sect or school of thought, the grief of the grandson of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) is amongst the Sha’air e Islam which is jointly commemorated by all schools of thought. Not only Shias or Sunnis but Christians, Hindus, Aizdis and Sikhs also pay tributes to Imam Hussain (A.S). He said that Junejo-Moosavi agreement provides guarantee to all religious freedoms including Azadari and Milad-un-Nabi. He demanded from the government to establish Muharram Control rooms from 1st Muharram to Meelad e Mustafa so that problems faced by the organizers of Azadari and Meelad programs could be resolved. He said that all patriotic forces must strengthen the support Pakistan Army. He said that when Yazeed forced Imam Hussain (A.S) to pledge allegiance, the holy Imam replied that we are the nurtured one of the holy Prophet who received revelations, who was the source of guidance while Yazeed is a drinker, killer of respectable personalities and openly commits major sins. A person like me can never pledge allegiance to a person like him. Hazrat Ibrahim had prayed to Allah to appoint Imams from his descendants, Allah had accepted his prayer and stated that Zalim will can never be appointed on this designation. Agha Moosavi said that when Imam Hussain came to know that Yazeed wants to violate the respect of Khana Kaaba, he abandoned hajj so that the dignity of Kaaba could be saved, and left for Karbala. Meanwhile, the procession, passing through its designate route, reached Muhammadi Chowk and turned out into a large gathering addressed by Allama Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi who said the mourning of Mazloom-e-Karbala is life and the source of survival. The Azadaran-e-Hussain on this occasion reiterated their resolve not to hesitate from any sacrifice for the supremacy of Islam, defence of the motherland, and for the promotion of Sunni-Shia brotherhood and coordination. They vowed to follow the Code of Azadari issued by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi till 8th RabiulAwwal.

Later the Azadaran paid pursa to the Mazloom-e-Karbala (A.S.) by carrying out through Zanjeer-Zani. The procession after marching through its designated route concluded at Jamia Imam Al-Sadiq Karachi Company. Mukhtar Students Organisations, MI, Ibrahim Scouts, Mukhtar Generation, and Mukhtar Force participated in the arrangements of the procession while UmmulBaneen WF performed the security duties for women. Arrangements for Sabeel-e-Hussaini were made during the procession. Members of the Islamabad Muharram Committee of the Tehreek NafazFiqh-e-Jafariya accompanied the procession along with high police officer and police contingent all along the procession’s route. Allama Syed Zahid Abbas Kazmi led the concluding Dua and thanked the participants of the procession, Matmis, Azadaran and the District Administration for their cooperation.
