By: Salman Alvi

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Universal Youm-e-Inhidaam Jannatul Baaqee was observed throughout the world on Wednesday on the call of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi to lodge protest against destruction of the holy shrines of Khatoon-e-Jannat Hazrat Syeda Fatima Zehra (S.A.) Ummahatul Momineen (R.A.) and Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) in Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla at the hands of Saudi rulers on 8th Shawal, 1925. On this occasion Majalis-e-Aza were held and protest Matmi processions were taken out in all big cities and towns against the destruction of holy shrines.

In Rawalpindi, the central Matmi protest demonstration was taken out from Imambargah Nasir Al-Aza, Chowk Waris Khan. Hundreds of Thousands of people participated in the rally and raised a voice of protest against the dilapidated condition of the Jannatul Baqee. The participants of the procession marched towards Committee Chowk passing through the Murree Road performing Matamdari and Noha-Khwani. The protest rally among others was led by Ulema Karam belonging to different schools of thought, office-bearers of TNFJ and other subordinate bodies, provincial, regional and district elite, leaders and Matmi Salars of religious organizations. Hundreds of minor workers of Mukhtar Generation and jawans of Ibrahim Scouts were carrying Shabih of Jannatul Baqee and were raising vociferous slogans against the destruction of holy shrines and in favour of reconstruction of the same while jawans of Mukhtar Organisation and MSO were holding black flag, portraits of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi and were carrying banners and placards inscribed with different slogans.

The rally turned out to be a big public meeting after reaching the Committee Chowk where Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi, Central Secretary Information, TNFJ addressed the rally. Presenting the special message of the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, he said the only way to solution of all problems confronted by the Muslim Ummah in annexation of Al-Quds Al-Sharif and independence of Kashmir is to get the dignity of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla restored.

The participants of the rally also adopted different resolutions among vociferous slogans. A resolution said the great shrines of Paighambar-e-Islam’s (SAAW) daughter Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.), her offspring, Ummahatul Momineen (R.A.) and Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) have become the symbol of disappointment. The resolution called upon the Muslim rulers to break their criminal silence. The resolution also demanded from the international organizations including the United Nations and Unesco, who claim to be the champions of world’s cultural heritage, to give attention on Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla also and get the dignity of the same restored because it is included in the United Nations Charter that this representative organisation of the world nations will not only protest the combined heritage of the mankind, its remains and signs but would also stop those who will cause their destruction.

Another resolution strongly condemned Daily Jang for not publishing the advertisement given to them for Youm-e-Inhidam Jannatul Baqee. It expressed shock that the so-called big newspaper is not a spokesman of the people as they keep the liking and disliking of their masters dearer than Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW), pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), Ummahatul Momineen (R.A.), and the Rasool’s (SAAW) mother. The resolution said that it is not an issue of Shia, Sunni or Barelvi but that of every human being and conscious and honourable Muslim the proof of which was given by Muhammad Ali Johar, Shorish Kashmiri, Maulana Shaukat Ali and is being given today by Quaid-i-Millat Jafaria Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi. The resolution made it clear that through this act of the newspaper; the hypocrisy of the so-called champions of freedom of the Press has been unveiled. When the human beings, institutions and States bargain their honour they stand nowhere that is why Muslim Ummah is being targeted by the colonial powers and Drone attacks are being conducted in the motherland day in and day out, it said. The resolution termed the newspaper’s action encroachment of the human rights.

The resolution demanded implementation of May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement and exert pressure on the Saudi government under this agreement to restore the dignity of the holy shrines. The resolution while demanding to declare Makkah and Madinah as open cities warned the Muslim rulers to get ready to face more difficulties and problems if they did not do anything practical in this connection. The resolution lamented the international atheist was bent upon desecrating the signs of Allah and was committing continuous desecration of Quran, Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) and pious leaders of the religion under an organised international conspiracy. The resolution called upon the Muslim Ummah to come out of its shackle and give priority to the collective interest of the Islamic World instead of giving priority to their personal interests so as to stop the enemies of the religion and Shariat from committing desecration. The participants of the rally expressing their solidarity with the whole world of humanity in general and with the oppressed people of Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan vowed to continue their practical struggle under the far-sighted leadership of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi in support of the righteousness, in expressing hatred against oppression, for achievement of rights of the Millat and for the integrity and solidarity of the motherland Pakistan and they will never hesitate in offering any sacrifice on his call.

Later, the rally terminated at Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain after passing through its traditional route where special prayers marked the conclusion of the rally. Mukhtar Force volunteers escorted the rally throughout while District Administration had made fool-proof arrangements en route the rally. Police officers and jawans remained with the rally throughout.
