of Imam Aali Muqam (A.S.) is not inheritance of any particular school
of thought rather his sacrifice was for human values and Godly
principles, that is why every conscious person is indebted to Hussain
ibne Ali (A.S.).

of Hussain ibne Ali (A.S.) in Karbala, then there would have neither
mosques nor calls for prayers (Azan).

Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas ahead of Muharram, which are working
round the clock.

administration to cooperate with Azadaran instead of creating problems
for them which damages the government credibility.

still continuing on the electronic media.

protest from Azadari Mazloom-e-Karbala and according to a saying of
Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Hamid Moosavi no one is the biggest
