Allameh Naqvi condemned Sindh government action against Hosseini mourners

Hojat al-Islam Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi, chairman of the Pakistan Shia Ulama Council and a member of the Higher Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, condemned the action of the local government of Sindh province, Pakistan against Husseini mourners.

In a message, he demanded the release of the abducted citizens and their return to their families.

Stating that detaining people without reason and evidence or abducting them, in addition to violating human dignity and human values, is against national, international, and human rights law, Allameh Naqvi said, “God Almighty has bestowed the blessings of freedom on human beings. Therefore, no one can deprive man of this freedom without a reason, and if some people are suspected of committing a crime, they should be punished through a fair trial.”

“Institutions and administrations that kidnap citizens and imprison them without any evidence have acted contrary to the verses of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet of Islam (p.b.u.h), and this is against the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” said the chairman of the Pakistan Shia Ulema Council, emphasizing that according to the Holy Quran, God has given human beings dignity, greatness, and honor, so imprisoning people is an insult to their human dimension.

“The referral of the issue of kidnapping citizens, from the national and local, to the international level, has caused great concern. Therefore, the United Nations and international institutions, instead of contenting themselves with statements and notes, should also take practical measures to stop these heinous acts against human dignity and for families to live in peace,” he said, describing the abduction and detention of citizens, especially Pakistani Shiites, as “extremely worrying”.

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Office in Pakistan denounces terrorist blast among Ashura mourners

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Office in Pakistan denounces terrorist blast among Ashura mourners

In a message, Hojat al-Islam Dr. Sayed Mohammad Najafi, head of the office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in Pakistan, condemned the terrorist attack in Bahawalnagar, Punjab.

In this message, he pointed to the enmity of the Wahhabi sect with Islam and the AhlulBayt (a.s.).

The message of the head of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Office in Pakistan is as follows:

The events that took place this year in Muharram al-Haram, especially in Bahawalnagar, are very reprehensible and should be condemned.

Imam Hussein (a.s.), the grandson of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), is the founder of Sharia, and love for him is found in every nation. But unfortunately, even today, the disgusting face of Wahhabism shows its enmity towards Islam and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and perpetrates such attacks.

Shiite figures held a conference on unity among Muslims around the world, in which the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Islamabad Office, also played a special role.

We strongly condemn the incident that took place in Ashura and will never allow mourning (for Imam Hussein) to be tarnished.

In the end, for the martyrs of Bahawalnagar, we ask for the exaltation from God and patience for their family and relatives

It should be mentioned that the terrorist blast among the mourners of Ashura in the city of Bahawalnagar, in Punjab, eastern Pakistan, left 5 martyrs and at least 50 wounded.

 

Ashura Intl. Foundation Statement Condemning Attack on Hosseini Mourners in Pakistan, Nigeria

Ashura Intl. Foundation Statement Condemning Attack on Hosseini Mourners in Pakistan, Nigeria

In a statement, the Ashura International Foundation condemned the attack on Husseini mourners in the Pakistani city of Bahawalnagar and the Nigerian city of Sokoto on Ashura Day.

A part of this statement reads, “The Ashura International Foundation calls on the Pakistani and Nigerian authorities to arrest the perpetrators of this crime and punish them severely. It also calls on the two countries to protect mosques, Takayas and mourning processions during Muharram and Safar, and by taking security measures, to prevent terrorist operations.”

The statement is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The brutal and criminal attack by Wahhabi Takfiri terrorists on the mourning processions of the Master of Martyrs, Imam Hussein (a.s.) in Bahawalnagar, Punjab, Pakistan, and the Nigerian military attack on Husseini mourners in Sokoto, Nigeria on Ashura, saddened the Islamic world and worried humanity.

These two heartbreaking tragedies - coinciding with the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (a.s.), his honorable family and companions - by the followers of Yazid in the present time, show the continuation of takfiri and sectarian ideas in these two countries, and at the same time, the vindictive cruelty of the agents of traitorous Wahhabism. By abusing these bloodthirsty takfiris, the enemies of Islam and their mercenaries have sought to destroy the atmosphere of unity and peace among Muslims, and this time, they were able to target the Islamic community in Pakistan and Nigeria.

Strongly condemning the two incidents, expressing condolences to the families of the Bahawalnagar and Sokoto martyrs and expressing solidarity with the injured in the two incidents, the Ashura International Foundation calls on the authorities of Pakistan and Nigeria to arrest the perpetrators of these crimes and punish them severely. The foundation also calls on the two countries to protect mosques, Takayas and mourning processions during the month of Muharram and Safar, and by taking security measures, prevent terrorist operations.

The foundation also calls on the international community and human rights organizations around the world not to remain silent in the face of repeated terrorist attacks against followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school in Pakistan and Nigeria, and to condemn these crimes, and also to take continuous measures against the perpetrators, organizers, financial and weapons supporters of these takfiri groups - as well as the anti-Islamic forces in the Nigerian army - and to take necessary preventive and legal measures.

Condoling the tragic martyrdom of the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) in Pakistan and Nigeria, and wishing immediate recovery for the injured in these two incidents, the Ashura International Foundation calls on God Almighty to always raise the banner of justice and anti-tyranny of Imam Hussain (a.s.) in the world and to disgrace the criminals in this world and the hereafter.

وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ (الشعراء، 227)

And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take! (Ash-Shu'ara, 227)
