Srinagar: Anjuman Sharie-e- Shian’s Aga Syed Mujataba Abbas while paying rich tributes to Martyers of Karbala said the significance of the Battle of Karbala that is not only not time-bound but also holds for the entire humanity.
Aga Mujtaba further said Imam Husain(peace be upon him) refused to support the tyrant ruler, refused to bow down before his power and might.
This is the first universal lesson that Karbala teaches us: Never support injustice and oppression no matter how powerful the oppressor might be. No matter what incentive, what threat you may be given, never support falsehood and tyranny.
“Karbala shows the distinction between good and evil. Truth is always on the side of the oppressed, never the oppressor. Karbala asks of us not just to recognise tyranny and oppression but also to stand up against it, even if it be at the cost of sacrificing our comforts and our families. A true Muslim can never say ‘mind your own business’, because humanity itself is everyone’s business. Truth and justice is everyone’s business — not just our homes, families, our dreams. And that is another universal message of Karbala — to make humanity the business of every Muslim”. Aga Mujatab added
Aga Mujtaba concluded, Karbala is an ever-continuing movement against oppression, against terrorism, against torture and tyranny. If you want to see true Islam being practised, you just need to turn to Imam Husain and his companions’ sacrifice in Karbala. And that is why even after 1400 years, we commemorate this great sacrifice every year: to keep alive the movement against terrorism, to keep alive the spirit of Islam.
