Aga Hassan led delegation meets Div Com

‘Karbala teaches us how to be steadfast, true to religion’


Srinagar, Sep 11 (KNS): A delegation of Anjuman Shari Shain led by its president Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi met Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Khan in connection with Muharram arrangements made by government.
According to the statement issued to KNS, threadbare discussions were held on sanitation, security, traffic management besides other necessary arrangements to be made at the religious places and during religious events organized during the holy month.
The delegation was informed that they have held joint meetings with line departments to finalize the arrangements including availability of basic amenities and other facilities for the devotees.
They were further informed that all the concerned departments have been directed to make available facilities during the remembrance functions and processions related to Muharram.
Aga Syed Hasan appealed Divisional Commissioner Kashmir to lift curbs on the 8th and 10th Muharram processions.
Meanwhile, Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi in his Muhram message has said that as long as human beings humiliate other human beings, as long as there is injustice in the world and oppression festers, every day is Ashura and every land is Karbala.
Ashura is the 10th day of Muharram. This year Ashura falls on Sep 12 when it will once again be remembered how ruthlessly Imam Husain, the grandson of Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam was murdered in the 7th century at Karbala, in modern day Iraq.
Husain, 54 had led a caravan of 72 family members and companions, including women and children to join friends in Kufa who were struggling against oppressors.
“What matters is humanity. Karbala teaches us how to be steadfast and true to the religion,” he said. (KNS)
