Srinagar, Aug 29: The Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar on behalf of its head Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq, who is under house arrest for the last 13 months, have paid glorious tribute to the Martyrs of Karbala especially Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) – the beloved grandson of the beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) – for their great and historic sacrifices.
The Anjuman in its tribute said that to safeguard the thought (belief), teachings and basic tenets of Islam, Hazrat Imam Aali Muqaam (RA), on 10 Muharram-ul-Haram 61 Hijri, along with his brave associates expressed such valour and sacrifice which will continue to guide the entire humanity till the last day.
Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) by refusing to surrender before tyrants (falsehood) set an example which acts as torchbearer for those striving for truth (Haq), till the Day of Judgement, the Anjuman said, adding that the exemplary sacrifices of the Martyrs of Karbala will always guide the Muslims as Imam Aali Muqaam’s (RA) martyrdom in the scorching desert of Karbala is a glorious chapter in the history of Islam and humanity.
The best way to pay tribute to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and the Martyrs of Karbala is to stand firm against all kinds of Baatil – the hegemonic powers whose thought and ideology are in contravention to the principles of humanity and morality – and to always keep the flag of Haq (truth) and justice flying high.”
Meanwhile, it was a tradition since centuries of the Mirwaizeen to visit Alam Sahib Shrine in Narwara and highlight the significance of Muharram-ul-Haram and pay tribute to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and the Martyrs of Karbala.Mirwaiz Umar Farooq too used to visit the shrine and throw light on Ashura but due to his continuous house detention, all this could not be possible this year as well the Anjuman said.
