By: Z.A.Kazmi

AZAD KASHMIR, Pakistan: Homage to matchless sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his 72 near and dear ones is being given in every part of the world including earthquake-devastated region of Azad Kashmir.

The most powerful quake measuring 7.6 on Richter scale severely jolted Pakistan on 8 Oct 2005 leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead and turning almost all cities in Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas into rubble.
Despite devastation across the region, Hussaini mourning – majalis and processions - is continued in all parts including Azad Kashmir’s capital city Muzaffarabad. 

On Friday Feb 3, a mourning procession was held in Muzaffarabad under auspices of Syed Sultan Ali shah Kazmi Convener TNFJ Azadari Cell Muzaffarabad. Procession was attended by flocks of hussaini mourners. They beat their chests and shed blood in memory of Imam Hussin (a.s.), grandson of holy Prophet (s.w.), who was unjustly killed in the burning desert of Karbala at the hands of Yazid some 1,400 years back in defending Islam.
