Moosavi criticises imposing restrictions on Majalis e Aza
The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board, Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that by imposing restrictions on Zikr-e-Hussain in Pakistan, Indian restrictions on programs of Azadari in occupied Kashmir are being legitimized.
“Human Rights are being violated by banning Majalis e Aza inside four walls of houses and Imambargahs. Dance parties are allowed in houses but the Zikr of the holy Prophet's grandson is restricted and that is a clear contradiction as well as deviation from Pakistan's founding ideology. Imposing a ban on Azadari is nothing but absurd thinking. Pakistan exists because of the blessings of Hussain's (A.S) sacrifice. Pakistan was founded under the slogan of La ilaha illal Allah while Hussain is the foundation of La ilaha illal Allah. Namaz, Azan and the entire Shariah is alive because of Imam Hussain's sacrifice.”
He said the Taliban's actions will speak louder than their announcements and there must be a fair dealing with all schools of thought. Islamic system must be implemented with all Islamic concepts rather than adopting a biased or narrow-minded approach. No one can eliminate Pakistan's geographical borders neither anyone would be allowed to compromise Pakistan's founding ideology.
He said this while talking to the representatives of national and international media and Azadars at Khayber Chowk during the 8 Muharram's mourning and Zuljanah procession brought out from Markazi Imambargah Jamea al Murtaza G-9/4.
Answering questions of the journalists the chief of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that there exists no matching example of Imam Hussain's sacrifice in human history.
“Imam Hussain refused to pledge allegiance to Yazeed by mentioning that Yazeed is the representative of falsehood and evil while I believe to the family that carries the Prophethood. Angels carrying revelations descend to our home and I have been raised by the Holy Prophet himself. Hence, no one like me can ever pledge allegiance to someone like Yazeed.”
