By: Salman Alvi
RAWALPINDI, May 2: Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, chief of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan while strongly condemning the bomb blasts in Karachi has said not a single straw could move on April 30 but blast the very next day provide food for thought. In a statement, issued here from Tehreek headquarters, he said an important part of the 7-point agenda of President Pervez Musharraf and the question asked in the Referendum was "rooting out terrorism" but it could not be checked yet, and why? He said the worst type of terrorism incident took place in Bhakkar a few days ago, Air Marshal (Retd) Shabbir Hussain Shah was murdered in Islamabad two days ago, many lost their lives while several others were injured in bomb blast in Karachi the other day, vehicles were put on fire and property damaged, what all this is going on? Where the Anti-Terrorism Ordinance has gone? Who are the elements that were creating hurdles in implementation of the Anti-Terrorism Ordinance? He said the victims of terrorism would definitely raise hue and cry, lodging protest is their basic right, we can stop them only to a certain limit, how much we could stop them from strikes and giving calls?
Agha Moosavi while expressing sympathies with the bereaved families demanded from the government to practically implement the Anti-Terrorism Ordinance, ensure peace, and remove the disappointment and uncertainty. He said the responsibilities of the President have increased manifold after the Referendum therefore, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf should take the notice of terrorism himself and give exemplary punishment to terrorists. He said the Sindh Governor has failed in checking the continued terrorism in Karachi therefore he should resign from his office immediately.
The TNFJ chief said Shah-e-Najaf incident took place just before Muharram, and then came the Islamabad incident and now continued incidents of terrorism have been reported just before the Chehlum. He said the government programmes pass by smoothly and after that bombs are showered on the people, which is no justice! He expressed surprise that the President puts restrictions on terrorists by declaring ban on them while the Governor makes them sit around him. Is this not contrary to the decision of the President of Pakistan, he asked? Does the terrorism would stop or increase by following this attitude…? Is the terrorism encouraged or discouraged by making the groups involved in terrorism sit around him after a ban is imposed on them…? He sought answers to these questions from the Governor.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya, Pakistan, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the standard of our friendship and enmity is based on belief, solidarity of the nation and the country which we prefer over all other matters. He appealed the people to remain alert and keep restraint by avoiding every step that would be damaging for the nation or the country. He announced that the Markazi Muharram Azadari Cells of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan would remain active till the first week of Rabiul Awwal and Azadari Committee would remain in action, therefore, the Azadaran Syed-us-Shuhada should remain in contact with the Markazi Control Room for the solution of all possible problems. He also advised them to keep Azadari supreme over all other matters and no one should take the law into his hand rather they all should remain peaceful.

It can better be imagined then described the physical suffering of Imam Hussain (A.S), his relative and companions in the burning desert under the scorching Arabian sun, the wriggling of the babies, nothing to feed, no water to drink a worst torturous situation surrounded by most merciless enemy in the year 680. There is no doubt that Imam Hussain (A.S) suffered a lot of physical suffering but he gained unprecedented moral victory over injustice, immorality and usurping. Imam Hussain (A.S) emancipated humanity by inflicting an eternal blow to the treacherous diplomacy, oppression and evil. His sacrifices and sufferings are unparalleled in human history. He not only revived the true principles of Islam but also emerged as the leader and a symbol of uprightness for entire mankind and the holy gatherings of sorrow to commemorate the incident of Karbala and the great sacrifices of Imam and his companions will continue to be held all over the world till the Day of Judgment.
In Toronto, Muslims (spy Shiah) will commemorate the day on Saturday 4TH May 2002 with a religious Holy procession (similar to Toronto Ashura Procession) starting at 3.30pm from Milliken Park CRC 4325 McCOWAN road and leave for Steeles Avenue and turn to Middlefield for Hussainiyah, Imam Bargha Passmore Avenue.
Alama DR. Malik Sakhawat Hussain will address the procession, said Rizwan Rizvi, (One of the organizers.)
