Paying rich tributes to Hazrat Imam-e-Hussain (RA) and his companions at Karballah 1400 years ago, chairman Hurriyat (G) Conference, Syed Ali Geelani said that this was not just a battle between two forces, but it was a fight between two ideologies.
The spokesman said that Imam Hussain (RA) honestly and courageously offended the forces which were trying to convert “Khilafat into Mallokiyat” and this incident glorifies the concrete and unshakable concept of Islam that injustice, tyranny and high headedness, even if done by Muslims, who are practicing and claim to be the best, is not accepted.
Geelani said that Imam-e-Hussain (RA) didn’t belong to any particular sect or group but was an icon of bravery and justice for whole Ummah, and the path he has shown serves as a beacon light even today for every Muslim, especially those fighting and confronting the aggression of occupation.
Hurriyat Chairman said that he didn’t fight for power, perks or comforts, but for justice and equality, therefore anybody who’s religion, economy, culture, honor, life, and livelihood are always under threat by dark and dusty clouds of occupation, should get inspiration from Imam Hussain (RA).
He said that people in Jammu and Kashmir are fighting for just cause for the last 7 decades and are witnessing Karbala almost every day. The best way to pay tributes to Imam Hussain (RA), is to strengthen our resolve and contribute, wholeheartedly and sincerely towards the movement, to get rid of the enemies.
He further said that everybody especially the followers of Islam and Imam Hussain (RA), should collectively fight the aggressor, that is the message Karbala and martyrdom of Imam Hussain has in store for us.
Referring to the sacrifices rendered by the people of Jammu and Kashmir to end the rule, Geelani said that more than 6.5 lakh people have been killed and an economy worth trillions is lost with the lakhs of injured, but repression, through their local conduits, seems to have no end.
Hurriyat chairman strongly condemned the use of “brute force” against the Ashoora procession at Abiguzar, Srinagar to Zadibal, by the police authorities and incarceration of Aga Syed Ahmad Almosvi of Anjum Shari-e-Shian, Nisar Hussian Rather chairman Tehreek-e-Wahdati Islami, Imtiyaz Haider, Ali Mohammad Rather, Shabir Hussain Dar and more than two hundred other mourners while they were injured with cane charge by the police authorities.
