Follow footsteps of Karbala martyrs: Imran

Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) was real liberator of Islam, says PTI chief Imran Khan.

Our Correspondent November 25, 2012


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said on Saturday that Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) was the torch bearer of truth and courage against tyranny, and urged people to follow in his footsteps.

In a statement, the PTI chief paid tribute to the Holy Prophet’s (pbuh) grandson, saying, “As Muslims we pay rich tributes to the sacrifices offered by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) who was the real liberator of Islam.”

Imran said that Pakistan is at a stage where values such as honesty, tolerance, solidarity and welfare for the poor are challenged, and adopting teachings of Islam could “save us from the prevalent evils in society.”

He said that Karbala changed the direction of Muslim history, adding that Pakistan should take a stand against social ills like corruption, bad governance and cruelty that has caused immense damage.

Mr. Khan, please speak out against the Taliban who are creating tyranny inside the country just like Yazid did back in history, then speak about standing up against evil. Making double standars will not encourage the "change" which you speak of.

Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) is the embodiment of faith and truth to be followed in our common lives. Its not enough to mourn the occasion for ten days and later lead our lives at our own.Similarly to arrange any Majlis which is becoming inconvenience for the other Muslim is not on the road and blocking way for the others is not appreciated in Islam. So all processions must remain confined to a premises not becoming any security hazard or public inconvenience.on one side it keeping the processions participants away from the hazarts of security and on other hand making the task of security agencies job easy, and on the third dimension causing no harm to passerby patients or people going to any other emergencies.CAN HAPPEN IF WE PLAY AS GOOD MUSLIMS.
