TNFJ chief at PC declares 18-point Code of Azadari

By: Salman Alvi

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Quaid-i-Millat-i- Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has called upon the countrymen to beware of the elements that fan hatred during Muharramul Haram and all schools of thought should preach their beliefs, ideologies and thoughts in a positive manner.

Announcing a 18-point Code of Azadari in connection with the oncoming Muharramul Haram during a Press conference here on Thursday, he said the government should get the Anti-Terrorism Act implemented strictly, deploy army at sensitive places, keep a strict eye on the activities of banned organizations, Muharram Azadari Cells should be set up forthwith at Interior Ministry, Ministry of Religious Affairs and in all the four provinces including Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas. These Cells should be made public through media and like previous practice be directed to keep in touch with the TNFJ Muharram Committee Azadari Cell so as to resolve the possible problems of the Azadars and to thwart the designs of the enemy with mutual cooperation, he added.

Agha Moosavi said that Azadari is our basic right and jugular vein on which neither our forefathers bargained nor we or our next generations are going to do so and no one will be allowed to create any hurdle in it. He called upon the Azadaran to carry out their Azadari rites in peace and with courage.

Replying a question about restriction on use of loudspeaker, he said restrictions on loudspeaker, Sunni and Shia ulema and zakireen is no solution to the problem rather action should be taken against the wrong use of the loudspeaker, and against those who instigate people and fan hatred. He lamented that banned terrorist organizations were there in all Peace Committees. Similarly, he said, the same elements are also visible in the Government and Opposition alliances.

Answering another question, the TNFJ chief said whether it is the Samarrah tragedy or the drama of Saddam’s hanging, the objective is to highlight sectarianism contrary to the fact that there is no Shia-Sunni conflict all over the world including Iraq, and we would not allow the colonial powers to do so till we are alive.

He said Saddam was neither Shia nor Sunni rather he was a Ba’athist (communist). He was declared as Kafir (atheist) and Mulhid by all Fuqaha including the Saudi Arabia’s Mufti-e-Azam Shaikh Baaz. He said Saddam had attacked Kuwait and Iran on American instigation and he massacred lakhs of innocent Shia, Sunni and Christian people including the biggest Sunni scholar Al-Samrai. He made it clear that those who are writing in Saddam’s favour are actually writing it in favour of the colonial powers and are promoting their interests. He posed a question to those who are presenting Saddam as Islam’s hero that did Saddam sought forgiveness from the Iraqi people till his death? Did he announce to refrain from his Ba’ath beliefs? He said the God is Beneficent, Merciful, and Justifiable. He gave good news to seekers of forgiveness and did justice to those who kept on oppression on His creature.

Agha Moosavi appealed all schools of thought to highlight the achievements of Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) and his near and dear ones; keep a strict eye on enemies of religion and motherland and beware of elements preaching hatred, enmity and biases and discourage such elements at every level.

He called upon the government to prohibit fanning differences and anarchy in the name of religion and Maktab and strictly enforce the Anti-Terrorism Law. The government should follow the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement in connection with bringing out Azadari processions; the Administration should be directed to avoid spreading fear amongst Azadars and organisers and fully cooperate with them in Azadari rites so that Azadars could perform their Azadari rites in peace and no such law should be enforced that may encroach upon the rights of anyone; effective measures should be taken before hand to provide protection to Majalis-e-Aza and Azadari processions at sensitive places which should continue from 1st Muharram to the month of Rabiul Awwal and if any problem is faced at any place, then the procession should not be stopped to resolve the problem rather the procession should be allowed to reach its destination with full protection, the Muharram Committee Azadari Cell of Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya would be ready to provide all types of cooperation in this connection. He said special arrangements for light and cleanliness should be made at the places of Majalis-e-Aza and on the routes of Matmi processions all over the country and load-shedding should not be carried out.

The TNFJ chief advised the organisers of Majalis to make protective measures on self-help basis and remain fully alert so as to thwart every conspiracy of the ill-wishers of the nation and the country. He said ulema, waizeen and zakireen, in their addresses and speeches, should give priority to unity of Ummah, survival and integrity of religion and motherland; media should highlight the great sacrifices of Martyrs of Karbala in a positive and effective manner, and should avoid ‘Munkiraat’ while the electronic media should suspend all types of music, and comedy programmes during the Ashra-e-Muharram. He called upon all political parties to suspend all types of political activities while Azadars should give priority to Azadari over everything; discipline and timings should be followed during Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions and any activity that may be contrary to the dignity of Azadari should be avoided; women should follow the seerat of Mukhadderat-e-Ismat and Taharat, and pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.); the dignity and honour of all Makatib and Masalak should be taken care of and respect of all should be kept in mind. He said the organisers of Majalis-e-Aza are fully responsible to follow the ‘Code of Azadari’ and also enforce it on others while the powers that be should issue directives to follow Code of Azadari from lower level to high level.

The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Hamid Moosavi made it clear that Azadari of Imam Mazloom (A.S.) is a universal protest of the oppressed against oppression and brutality and is our basic right and jugular vein, it is a source of our survival and the sign of human dignity. He said Nawasa-e-Rasool-us-Saqlain, Shahzada-e-Konain, Farzand-e-Ali (A.S.) and Batool (S.A.) presented the greatest sacrifice of history in the plains of Karbala along with his 72 near and dear ones and fulfilled the dream of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S.). He enlightened the darkness hovering over the world of humanity through the enlightenment of guidance i.e. Shahadat and gave ‘Basharat’ to founders of reality that an eternal morning has dawned on the horizon of hearts. Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) taught a lesson to root out oppression, brutality, suppression through ‘Mazloomiyyat’ to promote the message of Tauheed (oneness) and Shariat-e-Rasool. when Yazid inducted himself in government about 1368 years ago, he not only refused to accept Wahi and Ilhaam but also wanted to turn Masnad-e-Nabi that was actually Masnad-e-Illahi into Taaj-e-Shahi and to deshape the religion of Allah and Shariat-e-Mustafvi that could only be confronted only and only through Shahadat. This could be done only by Hussain (A.S.) because he was the inheritor of goals of all Anbia. Therefore, he challenged Yazid saying that I am the inheritor of Representatives of Allah and, therefore, would not allow anyone to do so.

Agha Moosavi said Imam Hussain (A.S.) came to Karbala as a Representative of Allah and not only provided protection to dignity of humanity by presenting the greatest sacrifice of himself and also that of his near and dear faithful ones rather gave it eternal survival. His proud Shahadat is a lesson for the oppressed world. Shahadat of Hussain (A.S.) is the headline of Kitaab-e-Hayat, humiliation of enemies of humanity, source of surprise for the world, and the angels are surprised on his patience, forbearance, courage and bravery. Anbia and Rusl were surprised over his patience, firmness, beauty and appearance, and were tearful on his thirst and helplessness. Daman-e-Gaiti is red in his mourning and Bait Allah is wearing black outfit in wailing so that Hussain (A.S.) may be remembered till eternity. Today remembering Hussain (A.S.) is the life-long wealth of the whole humanity and Azadari of the Mazloom is their life-long asset. The survival of humanity lay in Hussainiyyat that is why when the Muharram moon is sighted the whole humanity, without any discrimination on the basis on religion and Millat gets busy in Hussain’s (A.S.) mourning because Hussain (A.S.) belongs to all and Hussain (A.S.) belongs to Allah.

The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Hamid Moosavi said that Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) was placed at the highest pedestal of knowledge, faith, sacrifice, firmness, courage, bravery, piousness, sincerity, and Zuhd-o-Taqwa. Quran and Sunnah also stand witness on his greatness. He said, we are remembering the Nawasa-e-Rasool-us-Saqlain (SAAW), his Ahle Bait Atahaar (AS), and sincere Ashaab (R.A.) in a situation where we are surrounded by Satanic forces from all around, oppressed nations and the Islamic World are confronted with oppression and brutality, life is being made difficult for Kashmiris and Palestinians, war is going on in Afghanistan and Iraq, pressure is being exerted on Syria and Iran, aggression is being used against Somalia. The international terrorist is bent upon using new tactics to cause harm to the oppressed nations and the Islamic World while Muslim States are confronted with differences and anarchy and the atheists are united. He said motherland Pakistan that came into being in the name of Islam through the joint struggle of all schools of thought, is an atomic power now by the grace of God. It has become mole in the eyes of colonial chief, Hindus and Zionists, they do not like its honour, dignity, integrity, development and solidarity, they keep the biggest weapon of fanning biases for which they consider Muharramul Haram a ripe time, therefore, we all are duty bound to thwart every plan of the Satanic forces by practising the unity-pronged principles and sayings of Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), and pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) and provide satisfaction to the motherland and the whole humanity by observing the Ayyam-e-Aza with honour and respect under the Parcham-e-Hussainiyyat.
