The day began with Aamal-e-Ashoora in mosques. The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi led the Aamal at Ali Masjid Satellite Town. In Rawalpindi, main Youm-e-Ashoor procession was taken out from Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain and Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah Bohar Bazar. Zuljinah procession taken out from Imambargah Ashiq Hussain Teli Mohallah merged into the main procession. Mourners of Imam Hussain (A.S.) performed Zanjeer-Zani and presented ‘Pursa’ of the Imam Aali Muqam (A.S.) to the Holy Prophet (SAAW) on this occasion. The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated in the procession, offered Ziarat of the taburrakaat and performed Matamdari. Talking to media and Azadars on this occasion, Agha Moosavi said that Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) gave a new lease of life to the humanity and the religion of Islam with his blood. He said Imam Hussain (A.S.) could not be limited to any Maktab, area or a country because Hussain (A.S.) sacrificed his life for the respect of mankind and supremacy of the religion and Shariat that is why wherever is humanity there is Hussainiyyat which is the protector of humanity. He said no one can limit Azadari and one who tried to limit it would himself become limited. He said Azadari is the essence of worships and the whole earth is available for worship and those who are talking to limit it are unaware of the philosophy of Abudiyyat.He said putting restrictions on Ulema is not a solution to the problem rather they should be asked to follow the moral code. Answering a question, Agha Moosavi said efforts were made to sabotage Azadari by organizing other programmes during the Ashra-e-Muharram, especially the death anniversary of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto while the Shaheeda-e-Jamhooriyat has the honour to establish Muharram Control Rooms in the Ministry of Interior and the provinces first time in the history of Pakistan on the call of TNFJ for the solution of problems faced by the Azadaran.
|He said the biggest grief in the universe is the Gham-e-Hussain and any other grief or loss is low in front of it and one who confronts Gham-e-Hussain turns into pieces. He said Hussain (A.S.) is the essence of Islam and Pakistan came into being in the name of Islam, it has to remain and the collusion of the colonial-Zionist-Hindu trio could not cause any harm to it. A large number of mourners engaged themselves in heavy Zanjeer-Zani and Matam-e-Qamah at Bohar Bazar Chowk, Trunk Bazar, and Habib Bank Chowk. The procession turned into a big rally after reaching Fawwara Chowk where addressing the participants, Central Secretary Information of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan, Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said the invaluable sacrifice of Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) was for survival of religion of Islam and humanity. Among vociferous slogans of thousands of participants, Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said that all schools of thought are getting rid of banned groups therefore the government should impose ban on their activities and coverage by the media.|
|He lauded the Federal and Provincial governments for setting up Muharram Control Rooms on the call of TNFJ and the best arrangements made by the Administration of Rawalpindi and Islamabad for Muharram. He said Azadari is not limited to any particular fiqh or group rather it is the combined inheritance of all schools of thought. Thousands of Matamdars reiterated their resolve to offer all types of sacrifice on the call of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi for promotion of Wilayat-e-Ali and promotion and protection of Azadari. Ch. Mushtaq also addressed the gathering. A resolution presented by Abu Nasm, Secretary Muharram Committee of the TNFJ District Rawalpindi strongly condemned the incidents of terrorism in Karachi, Muzaffarabad and Shakarial and termed it the work of satanic trio that was bent upon destabilizing Pakistan to achieve colonial goals. The resolution stressed upon the media to avoid exaggerating the issues. The resolution strongly condemned the continued political activities by some political parties during the Ashra-e-Muharram, particularly organizing the death anniversary of Shaheeda-e-Jamhooriyat Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto on 9th Muharram. The resolution said that at a time when even Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians were paying homage to the sacrifice rendered by the Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) and the Christians even cancelled their musical programmes in respect of Ashra-e-Muharram, it is lamented that the government and some private channels were presenting musical programmes in this first ever ideological Islamic State achieved in the name of Islam and by doing so they are trampling the feelings of the Islamiyan-e-Pakistan who are busy in observing Gham-e-Hussain.|
|The resolution called upon the Prime Minister to take notice of not giving an additional holiday in lieu of Sunday falling on 9th Muharram as is always done in respect of Eidul Fitr and Eidul Azha holidays. Strongly condemning the recent incidents of terrorism throughout the country, the resolution termed the encouragement of the banned groups by the government, opposition and media as adding salt to the wounds of the Azadaran and demanded from the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of this situation and unveil the open violation of the set norms. The resolution said that if the government and the opposition are unable to be run without these national criminals then they should lift the ban imposed on them. Terming the inclusion of banned groups in the Mutahidda Ulema Board and Peace Committees set up by the Government of Punjab, the resolution called upon the Punjab Chief Minister to get rid of his advisers who are becoming the source of humiliation for him by doing so. The resolution condemned the lower echelons of the Administration for harassing the organizers of the traditional processions and termed the restrictions imposed on Ulema and Zakireen contrary to the human rights. The resolution strongly condemned load-shedding during the Ashra-e-Muharram despite government claims contrary to the same. The resolution made it clear that Azadari programmes continue till 8th Rabiul Awwal, therefore, all Control Rooms set up in the Ministry of Interior and in the provinces should remain intact till the Ayyam-e-Aza rather till the 17th Rabiul Awwal i.e. till the Eid Milad-un-Nabi programmes. The resolution stressed the need to direct the Administration throughout the country to follow the Code of Azadari issued by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, in letter and spirit. The resolution strongly condemned the partisan attitude and humiliating remarks of the Editor, Dawn Islamabad with the only representative organization of the Maktab-e-Tashih i.e. Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafairya Pakistan and demanded from proprietors of the said newspaper and journalists’ organizations to take strict action against such biased editor who is allegedly working for the banned organizations. The resolution expressed solidarity with the Pakistan armed forces busy in confronting with terrorist through Operation Rah-e-Raast and Operation Rah-e-Nijaat. The resolution strongly condemned restrictions on Azadari in the Held Kashmir and violence against the Ashoora processions there. The resolution condemned statements of some government functionaries in respect of limiting Azadari and supported the courageous point of view of the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi that governments come and go, many ministers have come and gone, but the Gham-e-Hussain will continue till the Zahoor-e-Mahdi.
