ISLAMABAD, Sep 10 (APP):Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the day of Muharram 10 reminds us of the supreme sacrifices of the martyrs of Karbala when Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) stood against the evil for supremacy of his religion Islam.
In a tweet on social media platform Twitter on Monday, she said Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) did not compromise on the bright and golden principles of Islam.
The Special Assistant said the great lesson of Youm-e-Ashur was to support the oppressed and did not hesitate from offering any sacrifice for virtue and truth.
On the day of Youm-e-Ashur, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave sacrifice for the supremacy of Islam, she added.
She said today, a Karbala could be witnessed in Kashmir which was under curfew for the 39th day, the whole Valley was turned into a jail, there was a severe shortage of food and medicines and a paradise like place was cut off from the world.
The lesson of Karbala was that “oppression is oppression, when it increases it is erased”, she remarked.
Dr Firdous said the Pakistani nation was following the life and teachings of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and would not leave the Kashmiri people alone.
Kashmiris were following the path of the martyrs of Karbala and those who were testing their determination would be defeated, she added.
