Karachi, November 14, 2013: Patron-in-Chief of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has urged Muslims to learn from the supreme sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and Ahle Bait and continue struggle for higher values and triumph of goodness over evil.
The incident of Karbala is remembered as historical event which established the lasting example of rendering sacrifice for upholding truth and principles. The Jihad fought by Hazrat Imam Hussain along with his companions is a shining minaret of courage, patience perseverance and determination, said PPP Patron in his message on Yom-i-Ashur falling on November 15, 2013.
He said that today the nation was passing through difficult phase as tyranny at the hands of militants continues to stark the country. “Islam is a religion of peace and forbids killing in the name of religion,” he said.
“At this juncture of our country’s history, we reiterate our resolve that no matter what the odds, we shall not submit before the tyranny of militants who want to impose their distorted ideology upon us and continue the struggle for a just, plural, moderate and enlightened Pakistan,” he further said.
PPP Patron appealed to people to rise above sectarianism and forge unity amongst them and to fight the forces that want to surrender Pakistan at the altar of narrow-mindedness and evil.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the best way to pay tribute to Hazrat Imam Hussain, the leader of all martyrs, is to adopt his character and face difficulties with courage. “In this way we can not only overcome all difficulties but we can also adopt the real teachings of Islam and succeed in this life and hereafter,” he added.
