Allama Sajid Naqvi remembers 6 July 1980
He named the 6th July as the Day of Enforcement of Jafari Jurisprudence for Shia Muslims (Youm-e-Nifaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafaria).
He recalled that people largely attended convention in Islamabad on 6 July 1980.
Allama Sajid Naqvi cited that people had made Islamic, legitimate, legal, democratic, rational and logical demand that the government must respect and recognize creed and tenet of all schools of thought in the process of Islamisation.
He said peaceful protesters demanded the government must ensure religious freedoms and civil liberties while respecting religious belief of all people (Muslims).
He called 6 July the day of attainment of legitimate rights which the Constitution of Pakistan guarantees for all citizens.
Allama Sajid Naqvi made clear that nobody should wrongly portray the 6 July 1980 a day of fray of one sect against another sect. He rebuffed that impression and allegation.
He suggested that people need to prepare for another phase of struggle on 6th July’s pattern for attaining legitimate rights.
Because, he said, regime again deny legitimate rights to people; hence, Allama Syed Sajid Naqvi urged people to renew their pledge on 6th July to follow that model once again.
