Gilani pays rich tributes to martyrs of Karbala

ISLAMABAD: The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, paying tributes to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions who were martyred at Karbala, has said that this was not

just a battle between two forces, but it was a fight between two ideologies.

According to Kashmir Radio Service, Syed Ali Gilani presiding over a seminar on Shahadat-e-Hussain (RA) organized by Tehreek-e-Hurriyat at its head office in Hyderpora area of Srinagar said, “Imam Hussain (RA) honestly and courageously fought the forces that were trying to convert Khalifate into Mallokiyat,”.

The seminar was attended among others by prominent personalities and Hurriyat leaders including Ghazi Muin-ul-Islam, Maulana Altaf Nadvi, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, Mohammad Yousuf Naqash, Hakim Abdul Rasheed, Mohammad Yasin Attai, Mohammad Yusuf Mir, Molvi Bashir Irfani, Syed Imtiaz Shah and Syed Mohammad Shafi. The puppet authorities barred Hurriyat leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik from taking part in the event. A written speech by the Mirwaiz was read on the occasion by Mohammad Rafiq Shah.

“Imam Hussain (RA) and his associates while sacrificing their precious lives, conveyed that believers should in no way hesitate to offer sacrifices in order to save human beings from oppression and suppression,” Syed Ali Gilani said in his address. He appealed to the Muslim Ummah and youth to follow and understand the divine message of Holy Quran and teachings of beloved Prophet, Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH).
