Sunni and Shia Islamic scholars condemn Yazid
Imamia Students Organisation and office of Karachi University’s adviser on students’ affairs jointly organise the event at the KU.
Well-known Shia Islamic scholars Allama Amin Shaheedi and Allama Ejaz Behishti and renowned Sunni scholar Allama Faisal Azizi spoke at the event.
Tehreek Minhajul Quran leader Allama Azizi slammed the supporters of Umayyad tyrant Yazid, saying that they deny role of Yazid in the assassination of Imam Hussain.
He cited historical fact that son of Yazid himself mentioned role of Yazid in the murder of Imam Hussain.
He said that tyrant Yazid was scared of Imam Hussain because the latter was preaching Islam as a system for the entire life and was defending Islam.
Allama Amin Shaheedi said that Yazid of the time were patronizing hatemongering Yazidis in Pakistan.
He said they want to deflect public attention from some Arab regimes growing friendship and close relations with Israel.
Moreover, he said that global imperialism has an agenda to spark off unrest in Pakistan and it aims at forcing Pakistan to recognize Israel.
Allama Shaheedi asked state institutions to foil this nefarious design of enemies of Pakistan.
Allama Ejaz Behishti said that said that Umayyad despot Yazid was ridiculing Islam and true followers of Islam; hence Imam Hussain came forward to reject his tyranny.

He said Syeda Zainab (AS) had carried that flag against tyranny after martyrdoms of Imam Hussain-led Martyrs of Karbala.
Due to her struggle and prays, he said, we are bale to commemorate the great martyrs of Karbala and the hero of oppressed humanity Imam Hussain.
Meanwhile, Karachi University Vice Chancellor Dr Khaliq Iraqi also spoke.
He termed Youm-e-Hussain a prodigy on part of Karachi University.
Furthermore, he said we can eliminate oppression and tyranny by following teachings of Imam Hussain.
Dr Khalid Iraqi recommended that educational institutions must have a separate section for research on Karbala.
