Addressing the participants, Dr. Jamal Nasir said, the great sacrifice rendered by Imam Hussain (RA) has drawn clear lines between forces of truth and falsehood. The Great Imam acquainted the humanity with the power of truth and submission before Lord by refusing to certify Yazid’s evil regime.
Pir Dr Azmat Ullah Sultan said Imam Hussain embraced martyrdom with his companions for the sake of Islam and Pakistan was also founded on Islam.
He said Imam Hussain fought with evil forces with less numbers but achieved success. Pir Naqeeb ur Rehman said Imam Hussain did not compromise on principles with Yazid for preservation of faith of his grandfather, the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Imam Hussain has given humanity its identity.
Agha Shahab ud Din said both Hussaini and Yazidi characters were present in our society in one form or the other. There was a need to promote the Hussaini character so that the evil forces could be eliminated.
Dr. Ghazanfer Mehdi said, through his matchless sacrifice, the Great Imam fostered human values and democratic principles which would stay intact till the Day of Judgment.
Abdullah Gul said Imam Hussain was the grandson of the Holy Prophet (SAW) for whom he had great love. He said there was a need to revive the Hussaini character, value system and pattern of live and keep beholden to it. Today, Islamic values were being decimated and conspiracies were being hatched against Islam and the Prophet of Islam (saw).
At the end, Pir Dr. Azmat Ullah Sultan offered special prayer for the progress, prosperity of the country and unity of Muslim Ummah all over the world.
