Agha Syed Musavi Participates in Arbaeen Procession

By TNFJ Information Wing

The Chehlum in memory of Nawasa-e-Rasool  Hazrat Imam Hussain ('a) and his 72 companions was observed with due solemnity and devotion throughout Pakistan including Azad Kashmir and the Northern Areas on Friday April 25th 2003.

Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, the chief of TNFJ (Quaid-e-Millat-e-Jafariya), is pictured above wearing new black, solemn, scholarly clothing as he spoke with the delightful horse chosen this year to represent the beloved horse of Imam Hussain ('a), Zuljanah, in the Juloos procession. Agha Syed Hamid, participated in the procession, offered Ziyarat of the Tabarukaat and performed Matamdari.

In Rawalpindi, the main Arbaeen Procession was taken out from Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain College Road and Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah, Bohar bazaar. The Zuljanah procession was taken out from Imabargah Ashiq Hussain Teli Mohalla and merged into the main procession. Mourners of Imam Hussain ('a) performed Zanjeer Zani on this occasion. Zuljanah, Alam Mubarik, Tazia, Mehndi Shehzada qasim ('a), Gehwara Masoom Ali Asghar ('a), Taboot Imam Aali Moqaam ('a) and other Tabarukaat were included in the procession. A large number of mourners engaged themselves in heavy Zanjeer Zani and Qama Zani at Bohar Bazar Chowk, Trunk Bazar and Habib bank Chowk. First aid was provided to bleeding Matmis at the medical camp organized by Mukhtar Students Organization Pakistan (M.S.O.).

The procession turned into a big rally after reaching Fawara Cowk, where addressing the participants, Khateeb Fateh Furat said Islam enjoyed a new lease of life with the sacrifice that was rendered by Imam Aali Moqaam ('a). He said Hussain Ibne Ali ('a) is the leader of all conscientious human beings and Mohsin-e-Insaniyat. He said tyranny and Zionism could be fully confronted by following Uswa-e-Shabbiri ('a). He said Azadari is the trustworthiness of Hazrat Zainab ('a) and Hazrat Sajjad ('a) who disseminated the mission of Hussainiyat throughout the world despite being in detention. He said, as per the saying of Quaid-e-Millat-e-Jafariya Agha Syed hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, Azadai is a universal protest of the oppressed against the oppressors and no sacrifice would be spared for its promotion and protection. Chohdry Mushtaq Hussain also addressed the gathering and highlighted the philosophy of shahadat.

Chehlum Syed-ush-Shohada is Not Less than Ashura

The participants approved a resolution presented by the Ala Haider by raising vociferous slogans. The resolution made it clear that the importance of Chehlum Syed-ush-Shohada is not less than Ashura. The government was therefore asked to announce a public holiday on 20th Safar-ul-Muzaffar. The huge gathering of the main Chehlum procession lamented that Pakistan's electronic media had always been in the government’s control and its policy was controlled by the government, while print media also suppressed the voice of the oppressed after being impressed from the rulers. Thus the media always ignores the Maktab-e-Tashayyo in every era and they follow their own policy contrary to the principles of Musawwar-e-Pakistan and Founder of Pakistan, while some newspapers were playing the role of big “Theke-daars” (contractors) of Pakistan and were following the policy of ignoring the Sunni and Shiite Makteeb rather to create differences between them. The resolution said that the world was well aware that Maktab-e-Tashayyo observed Youm-e-Azmat-e-Sha’air-Ullah at the call of Quaid-e-Millat-e-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi when Mazar of Hazrat Imam Abu Haneefa was bombed.

While the participants of the procession resolved that they respected the minorities but on the day of Chehlum of Shohda-e-Karbala,  it is tragic that the electronic and print media did not carry any report about the historic event. Do the rulers who were observing the Chehlum of their cousins, give no importance to the Chehlum of Hussain ('a)? 

The resolution said no government adviser or minister are even seen in Azadari processions. They demanded from the government to change its policy that was becoming fruitful for our perpetual enemy. The resolution said the world media is reporting that Chehlum of Imam Hussain ('a) in Karbala-e-Mo’alla attracted 30 to 40 lakh people but one of the Pakistani newspapers is putting this figure as a few hundred; to whom does that paper try to please? Such people should keep in mind that there would have been no Islam, no Nizam or Nizami if there had been no sacrifice of Hussain ('a). The resolution expressed over the suggestion given by that paper (Nawa-e-waqt) that Shiite and Sunnis have become united. We question, when were they separated? The whole world is aware that Sunnis and Shias are offering joint sacrifices in Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq, they founded Pakistan together, they are also a concrete wall and the enemy as far as its defence it concerned. The resolution made it clear that Sunni and Shia are two arms of Islam and every power from within and without should keep in mind that no one could separate them. The resolution made it clear to those who are observing the year in the name of Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, that Fatima Jinnah was a mere Kaneez (servant) of respected Bibi Fatima Zahra ('a), who was respected by the Rasool ('s), and Fatima Jinnah could only be satisfied when Dukhtar-e-Rasool ('s) is satisfied, and Muhammad Ali Jinnah could be satisfied when Muhammad ('s) and Ali ('a) are satisfied.

The gathering called upon all those who have reached the Assembly that only“ Kaffarah” of their chair is service to the religion and the humanity. If they keep their personal interests supreme, then they should be ready for the consequences as there is delay but no injustice. If they desire to keep away from humiliation and defamation then they will have to cling to Ahmed-e-Mukhtar ('s) and Haider-e-Karrar ('a) and accept Hussain ('a) as their Peshwa; Hussain ('a) is the main source for all independence movements the world over, of which the international colonial powers are afraid. The colonial powers have written new history of the oppressed people everywhere including Afghanistan, Palestine, Kashmir, Bosnia and Chechnya. They rooted out cities after the cities, run tanks over the dead bodies, tore apart these bodies into pieces but they met the voice of  “Islam Zindabad” coming out from every piece of the bodies of Shohada. The resolution condemned that Yazidi colonial powers played “Holi” with the blood of Iraqis and as a new step tried to pitch different schools of thought against each other, but the Iraqi people deserve all the praise for not falling prey to their tactics, thwarting conspiracies of the allied forces by raising the slogan that there is no Sunni or Shia but they are Muslims. Earlier, the great Marja Ayatulla Al-Uzam Syed Mohsin Al-Hakim (A’alallaho Maqamoho) had declared irreligiousness as atheism and Ilhaad that has died its own death and now colonialism and Zionism would also die their own deaths because when oppression crosses all limits then comes the decay.


Withdrawal of Allied Forces from Iraqi Soil


The participants of the procession demanded an immediate withdrawal of the allied forces from Iraqi soil and called upon the United Nations to play its role in organizing justifiable elections and hand over power to the elected Iraqi representatives. The resolution made it clear that Iraqi people have the right to form a government of their own and no one could snatch this right from them.  The resolution called upon the Muslim rulers to create mutual understanding in the largest interest of the Islamic world and look towards all issues in the backdrop of the Islamic World and lay a combined strategy for a solution to all of these problems. The participants of the main Chehlum Procession termed it a blessing that Pakistan came into being in the name of Islam and every Muslim believes that Kalma-e-Tauheed is the basis of Islam and as per the saying of Khoaja Moin-ud-Deen Chishti “Haqqa keh Bina-e-La Ila Hast Hussain ('a)”. If Pakistan has to play a leadership role for Muslims and oppressed states in the independent world, then they will have to adopt the Momin-like approach, first as a proof of which they will have to become Hussaini so as to give priority to death in honour over life in disguise, because Hussainiyat is the name of courage and bravery which is eternal, while Yazidiyat and colonialism is commensurate with cowardice, oppression and brutality and could not ever prosper.


The resolution expressed concern over what the Islamic world and the oppressed nations are confronted with saying that we all should take a lesson from it and no one should be optimistic. There is a saying of Masoom ('a) that a good friend is the one who tells his friend about his plus and negative points. Therefore, we will have to come out from our shells and give up the policy of depending on the colonial powers as they have bitten us several times, we kept on waiting for the Naval Fleet and had to watch our fate instead. The resolution termed the efforts for forming MATO for the solution to problems of the oppressed and Muslim Nations, a good step, but added that the right of Veto is also necessary in addition to that because organizations like O.I.C., the Arab League and the Gulf Council have failed in the past.


Colonial  Agents Creating Division


The resolution made it clear that those who create differences between the recognized schools of thought and announce Fatawa-e-Takfeer against them are actually colonial agents while the key of our supremacy and success lay in mutual unity. Therefore, we all have to become united and pious to save Pakistan, protect the Islamic World, and to achieve rights for the oppressed nations because our unity is the mole in the eyes of our enemy. The participants of the Arbaeen-e-Hussaini procession resolved that Pakistan came in to being in the name of Islam, therefore, the key to country’s development and stability lay in following the religion that could only be possible if rights of all are taken care of on the basis of equality, and respect extended to all without any discrimination. 


The resolution, while demanding immediate implementation on the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement for a solution of long-standing problems of the Millat-e-Jafariya Pakistan, reiterated their resolve to follow any line of action given to them by the Chief of TNFJ, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi (Quaid-e-Millat-e-Jafariya) for his mission of “Wila” and “Aza”. The resolution said that we keep Islam, Pakistan and the welfare of its people supreme and we will neither bargain our beliefs and the motherland nor allow anyone to do so.  

Later participants of the main Ashura procession performed historic Zanjeer Zani in Raja Bazaar. Zuljanah processions were taken out from Imambargah Kashmiriyan Tyre Bazar and Darbar Sakhi Shah Chan Charagh also merged into the main procession at Purana Qila. The main Chehlum procession terminated at Imambargah Qadeemi after passing through Jamia Masjid Road and Imambara Chowk. The participants of the Zuljanah processions taken out from Imambargah Yaadgar-e-Hussain ('a) satellite town and Imambargah Baltistania Angtpura performed Zanjeer Zani at Banni Chowk. Both these processions terminated after reaching Imambargah Qadeemi. Mukhtar Students Organization (M.S.O.) installed Markazi Azadari Camp at Fawwara Chowk during the main Chehlum procession where arrangements for Sabeel-e-Hussaini were especially made. Volunteers of Ibrahim Scouts, Mukhtar Force, Mukhtar Generation, Civil Defence, office-bearers of District Azadari Committee of TNFJ, officials of the District Administration and a heavy contingent of police remained with the procession throughout.
