Azadari biggest universal protest against oppression: Pak majalis

By: Salman Alvi

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Majalis Ashra-e-Muharram continued throughout Pakistan like other global parts in memory of Mohsin-e-Insaniyyat Shaheed-e-Azam Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) and his near and dear ones.

Ulema and zakireen addressing the Majalis-e-Aza highlighted the great deeds of Shuhada-e-Karbala. In the ladies Majalis, resolve to follow in the footsteps of Mukhadderaat-e-Ismat and Taharat was expressed.

Allama Shaikh Ijaz Hussain addressing the 6th Majlis of Ashra-e-Muharram at Markazi Imambargah Qasr-e-Abu Talib (A.S.) said that Hussain ibne Ali (A.S.) saved the humanity and the losing values of Shariat with his blood.

Allama Saqlain Haider Kazmi and Maulana Tabassum Abbas Kazmi addressing the Majlis at Ali Masjid said the religion of Islam preaches the method of respecting all and sundry and is the preacher of peace and tranquillity as it has never committed aggression rather always adopted the defensive strategy and raised voice against oppression and brutality even on the point of spear, that is why Azadari is still going on and has become a peaceful protest of conscious people against oppression and brutality.

They said whenever Yazidiyyat surfaced; it was Hussainiyyat that downed it. Everyone who respects humanity not only condemns the blasphemy committed in Denmark, Norway, Spain, Germany, France, New Zealand and Jordan rather they have become a symbol of protest because they were preached to do so by Karbala. They said as per a saying of Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Hamid Moosavi our protest would continue till the time justice and fair-play is restored and oppression and brutality pushed away. They said we are supporters of the oppressed and enemy of the oppressor and Azadari is the biggest universal protest against oppression.

Allama Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi, addressing a Majlis-e-Aza at Imambargah Qasr-e-Sakina Dhok Hassu said, Pakistan came into being in the name of Islam, therefore, Hussainiyyat is defender of Pakistan and its people the promotion and protection of which is our duty in faith.

A ladies Majlis was organised under the auspices of Anjuman Dukhtran-e-Islam (Regd) at Jamia-tul-Murtaza G-9/4. Zakira Rakhshanda Wajih addressed while Syeda Azmat Zaidi performed Marsia Khwani. Shabih-e-Taboot Shahzada Ali Akbar (A.S.) was taken out followed by Matamdari after the Majlis.

Allama Basharat Hussain Imami addressing a Majlis at Markazi Masjid and Imambargah Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (A.S.) Tarlai Kalan said, Azadari-e-Hussain guarantees survival of Islam, welfare of humanity, defeat of Taghoot for which we would have to keep ourselves intact with Daman-e-Hussainiyyat.

A resolution adopted on the occasion demanded from the government to set up Muharram Cells at Federal and provincial levels forthwith and may be asked to remain in constant touch with the TNFJ Markazi Muharram Committee.

The resolution made it clear that Muharram is not the name of merely 10 days rather the Azadari programmes continue till 8th Rabiul Awwal, therefore, the government should make special arrangements during these days and the Code of Azadari announced by Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Moosavi should be followed in letter and spirit.

The resolution strongly condemned blasphemy on the part of German, Spanish, French, New Zealand and Jordanian newspapers in publishing defamatory caricatures and called upon the Muslim States to devise a courageous strategy against this heinous activity.
