Islamabad, Nov 14: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in his glowing tribute to Imam Husain (AS) and his companions has urged upon Muslims to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Aali Muqam(RTA) and his family members by rekindling the spirit of Jihad in accordance with the tenants of Islam and the legacy of Husain(AS) as left behind by him in the 1st century of Islam in the battle field of Karbala.
In a press release issued from Islamabad, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said the Imam and his family members sacrificed their lives for Allah, and Prophet (SAWS) to show to the whole world ‘what virtue is and how it can be differentiated from vice and foul playing of treacherous and despotic rulers. He said the Imam (AS) was endowed with exemplary wisdom and tolerance and gave enough time to the rulers of his time to correct themselves, but when they continued to rule over the people without following Qur’an and the Prophet of Allah (SAWS), he had no alternative save to announce his course of action as demanded by the people in line with the teachings of Islam.’
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said ‘Imam Husain (AS)’s life will continue to inspire Muslims across the world generation after generation who they regard as torch-bearer of faith and sacrifice for good. It’s extremely sad that the Muslim world is in whirlpool and has gone instable and insecure due to ignorance, infighting and enemy conspiracies. Muslim states, societies, schools of thought don’t demonstrate as one body and one soul; but make enemies’ grand design of dividing and disintegrating the crescent region easy by their individual interpretations, and actions. He said Quran and Sunna were enough to interpret will of Allah but unfortunately some elements were bent upon leading Muslims off track of Quran and Prophet (SAWS) under different names. Muslims must remain cautious and conscious in all conditions.
He said, “Notwithstanding Muslim demographic and geographical power in the world Muslims have become slaves in their own countries; their resources and policies are being dictated and controlled by alien forces, they are being divided and sub divided to fight against each other. Every enemy in any garb has directed its canons, missiles and drones to Pakistan to weaken this great state of Muslim power. Jammu and Kashmir is under illegal and forcible occupation of India for the last 66 years.
Muslims of Kashmir killed and brutalized during all these years or forced to flee from their homeland to take shelter in Pakistan have gone up to millions. The UN that had adopted plebiscite in Kashmir as the only way out to bring peace has left the Kashmiris at the mercy of Indian rulers. In Palestine, Zionist rule of Israel is all out for more and more illegal and forcible settlements of non Palestine populace to change the Muslim majority character of Palestine and kill the concept of an independent and sovereign state of Palestine. In Iraq and Syria different strategy to eliminate and annihilate Muslims is going on and in Myanmar (Burma) ethnic cleansing of Muslims has been started ruthlessly under Bud monks and military/political rulers.
In short Islam, Muslims are targeted cunningly everywhere in the world.” He said but all the grief and gloom on the face of the crescent world can be removed if Muslims followed Quran and Sunnah and upheld teachings and the sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Husain(AS) and Ahle-bait(RTAA) and worked hard and tirelessly to frustrate the designs of the enemy within and without.
