Brave Kashmiris should be inspired by Karbala, says Imran Khan 

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Ashura day said that brave Kashmiris who are fighting against the worst form of military oppression and tyranny should be inspired by Karbala to stay steadfast in their courage because of their struggle against tyranny will succeed as the martyrs of Karbala showed us.

The struggle continued against the oppression of occupation and injustice in Indian Illegal Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), the Prime Minister said.

In a tweet thread, he said there are three important messages for the nation from Imam Hussain (RA), his family and followers' sacrifice at Karbala. The number one message is that immortality is earned by those who give the supreme sacrifice of their lives to stand against tyranny and injustice. “It is not earned simply by being rich, powerful or educated,” the Prime Minister maintained.

He further said that secondly, throughout history many great Muslims have been inspired by Karbala and sacrificed their lives to stand against oppression, colonial rule and injustice.

Thirdly, “The struggle continues against the oppression of occupation and injustice in IIOJK and brave Kashmiris who are fighting against the worst form of military oppression and tyranny should be inspired by Karbala to stay steadfast in their courage because their struggle against tyranny will succeed as the martyrs of Karbala showed us.”
