Great martyr Allama Arif Hussaini was a revolutionary leader who struggled to attain the legitimate rights of all oppressed people of Pakistan particularly Shia Muslims. He led a Shia party that always advocated unity among all Muslims and downtrodden people of Pakistan. Allama Hussaini believed in peaceful political struggle and he announced participation in the political process including elections to attain the legitimate rights of Shia Muslims.
Almost all Shia parties who are active in mainstream politics inherit this legacy of Allama Hussaini since he gave this course of action to oppressed Shia Muslims of Pakistan. He is the architect of modern mode of Shia political struggle in Pakistan.
