SIALKOT-The Muslims here organised “Hussain (RA) Sab Ka...Peace Conference” at Koobey Chak where speakers urged the people to seek inspiration from the sacrifices made by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his gallant companions in Karbala to quell terrorism.

Addressing the participants, PPP leader and former federal minister Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan urged the people to fight tyranny, dictatorship and terrorism to put the country on path to progress and development. She said at Karbala, the family and followers of Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) offered the supreme sacrifice to uphold the golden principles of Islam against the undemocratic and dictatorial powers.

She added that the incident of Karbala is remembered as a historic event which set the example of upholding truth and principles. Jihad fought by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) along with his companions is the shinning example of courage, patience, perseverance and determination.

She said, “Ashura gives us a message of not hesitating to render any sacrifice for upholding the principles of truthfulness and Islamic values. The Muslim Ummah is passing through a difficult phase and confronting problems and challenges of terrorism.”

She said that Ummah needed the spirit of Karbala, and added that with spirit of sacrifice and unflinching determination, the Ummah can overcome all the difficulties. She narrated that the best way to pay tributes to the martyrs of Karbala is to make commitment to work and devote oneself for the development and strength of the country. She narrated that the day reminds us how to stand up for the right with dauntless courage for freedom and justice and will serve as a glowing example for the entire humanity till the end of this world.

She said Karbala will always be quoted as an example of determination and resolve, by a group of devotees who set the example of sacrifice and bravery against a despot. She said Hazrat Imam Hussain stood up against the dictator to protect the Islamic values. His supreme sacrifice reflects the spirit of Islam which is against tyranny and despotism.

“Let us pledge that we shall fight against tyranny, ignorance, dictatorship, terrorism, barbarism and violence in the light of the principles set by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RT). Only then we can put the country on path to development and progress,” she said.
