By: Salman Alvi

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Ashra-e-Shaheeda-e-Zindaan programmes organised throughout the country in connection with the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Sakina bint-ul Hussain (A.S.) announced by Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi came to an end on Tuesday.

On this occasion, Majalis-e-Aza were held and Taboots (replica coffins) were taken out in ladies Majalis in all small and big cities of the country. Ulema, waizeen and zakireen strongly condemned publication of blasphemous caricatures and destruction of holy mausoleums in Samarra and reiterated their resolve to continue pursadari of Mazloom-e-Karbala (A.S.) with mutual understanding and brotherhood till 8th Rabiul Awwal by following TNFJ’s Code of Azadari in letter and spirit.

On the last day of the Ashra-e-Shaheeda-e-Zindaan various religious organisations staged a protest demonstration against the publication of blasphemous caricatures and the Samarra tragedy. The participants of the rally were carrying banners and placards inscribed with protest slogans.

Hojjatul Islam Syed Hussain Kazmi, Allama Basharat Imami, and Allama Sadiqi addressing the demonstrators said whether it is publication of blasphemous caricatures or terrorism in Samarra and Karbala, it all has been done by the enemies of Islam. They said whole energy is being utilised to give an impression that there is a sectarian and Maktabi war in Iraq where there is no such situation throughout the world including Iraq. They paid tributes to the exemplary display of Sunni-Shia unity that proved that they are united and no power on earth could create any rift amongst them.

They demanded summoning of emergent OIC meeting to lay down a joint strategy in connection with the publication of blasphemous caricatures and Samarra tragedy.

Zakirah Nigar Raza addressed the last Majlis of Ashra-e-Shaheeda-e-Zindaan organised by Anjuman Dukhtran-e-Islam at Jamia-tul Murtaza G-9/4 Islamabad following which Taboot (replica coffin) of Hazrat Sakina (S.A.) was taken out and Matamdari held.

A Matmi procession was taken out under the auspices of TNFJ Local Council Gharibabad in Rawalpindi in which Matmi Dasta Jhalarian Muazzam Qalander, Matmi Dasta Shabab Ali Akbar, and Matmi Dasta Sakhi Shah Chan Chiragh performed Matamdari and Noha-Khwani.

Majlis-e-Aza was held after the procession. Maulana Malik Ijlal Haider Al-Haideri, Ch. Mushtaq Hussain, Zakir Matloob Hussain Kazmi, Zakir Syed Zaki Al-Hasnain, Zakir Ghulam Farid Jafar, Zakir Shaukat Hayat Nayyar, Zakir Ayub Malang, and Maulana Javed Hussain Haideri paid tributes to Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Moosavi on announcing observation of Ashra-e-Shaheeda-e-Zindaan and announced commitment to support any call given by him for promotion of Hussainiyyat.

A resolution adopted on the occasion blamed international colonial powers for continued terrorism all over the world and called upon all international organisations including the United States to play their role in getting the oppression going on in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Palestine stopped and to ensure honour and dignity of the holy places.

A Majlis-e-Aza was held at Imambargah Zain-ul Abideen under the auspices of Anjuman Faiz-e-Punjtan. Zakira Nagin Zaidi addressing the Majlis said that the Imam Aali Muqam (A.S.) had saved Islam by giving his head while Hazrat Sakina (S.A.) along with Syed-e-Sajjad (A.S.), Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) and Hazrat Kulsoom (S.A.) disseminated the message of Hussain (A.S.) to the world owing to which flag of Islam is fluttering all over the world today.

She said Aseeran-e-Karbala (S.A.) delivered heart-rending addresses in Kufa and Shaam that shattered the Yazidi courts. The patience and firmness shown by Yateeman-e-Karbala in Zindaan-e-Shaam is the best example for the oppressed and the have-nots to follow for the rest of their life. Taboot of Shaheeda-e-Zindaan (S.A.) was taken out after the Majlis after which Matamdari was also held.

Syed Faizan Kazmi addressed a Majlis-e-Aza held under the auspices of Hay’at Tulaba-e-Islamia and termed the attachment with Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) as the best source of success here and the Hereafter. Ali Zeb Kazmi, Syed Imran Kazmi, Syed Manzar Kazmi and others addressed the Majlis that followed Matamdari.
