Srinagar, August 30 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Anjuman Sharie Shian organized mourning ceremonies on the occasion of Ashura across the valley.
According to media sources, scholars on the occasion explained the philosophy of martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and the different aspects of the battle of Karbala.
President of Anjuman Sharie Shian, Agha Syed Hassan Al Moosvi Al Safvi, who has been under house arrest since August, last year, was continuously barred from attending the mourning gatherings at central imambargah in Budgam.
In his message on the occasion of Aashoora day, Syed Hassan Al Moosvi Al Safvi said that the unparalleled battle of truth and falsehood, that took place on the land of Karbala, would live on forever and the humanity would have a spirit of resistance and perseverance against oppression and tyranny.
He said that Aashoora Hussaini is a school of protection and survival of Islam and humanity. He said Islam is the religion of security where human health and safety is the first priority. In the current epidemic situation, the requirements of human health and safety during mourning ceremonies are strictly in accordance with Sharia, he added.
Strongly condemning the police violence on mourning processions at various places during Muharram days, Agha Hassan said these tragic incidents took place due to contradictions in the authorities’ Muharram policy in the epidemic situation.
Expressing heartfelt sympathy with the mourners, he said that the police brutality on religious processions under the guise of epidemic situation was a reflection of the authorities’ policy of completely depriving the Muslim people of their religious freedom. KASHMIR VOICE
