PESHAWAR - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that Karbala tragedy was not mere an incident but in fact it teaches humanity especially the Muslims a great lesson to stand up for truth.

He said that Karbala was in fact a war between the right and wrong wherein the great sacrifice rendered by Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A), the dearest grandson of the holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), for the right cause and glory of Islam would be remembered forever.

In his message on Ashura Day, the chief minister said that the Karbala incident taught us to demonstrate the spirit of love with humanity, support the right and reject the wrong.

He said following these principles could not only keep us united and revives the glory of Muslims but could lay solid foundations for durable peace in Pakistan and the world at large. He said that the petty differences among various sects of Muslims were not new but over fourteen centuries old.
