Azadaran-e-Imam Hussain (A.S.) continued to lift the â€œalam pakâ€ despite huge bomb blast in Khanpur tehsil of district Rahim Yar Khan (Punjb province). They remained at the scene and raised slogans: Labbaik Ya Hussain (A.S.).
The blast occurred in the matami procession that was brought out in commemoration of the martyrs of Karbala. Imam Hussain (A.S.)-led companions and
family members embraced martyrdom fighting the Umayyad tyrant ruler. They embraced martyrdom but did not bow to Yazidiat. Shia Muslims in particular and more azadars in general commemorate the Karbala incident.
Yazid, Umayyad despotic tyrant rulerâ€™s era was full of terrorism,harassment, massacre and confinements of opponents of his terrorist government. Even today, remnants of Yazidiat perpetrate similar crimes against fellow Muslims and Shia Muslims in particular. But, as a matter of fact, salutes be showered on valiant azadaran-e-Imam Hussain (A.S.) who gave a clear message to the terrorists. They gave message that these sorts of mean and cowardice tactics could never dash their certainty in true faith. It was not first such demonstration of unwavering faith in â€œHussainiatâ€ based Islam. In Karachi, azadaran had lifted the alam pak despite explosions in the Ashura procession. This time it was chehlum of the martyrs of Karbala and place was Khanpur. It is also relevant to add here that a banned terrorist outfitâ€™s chief had threatened Shia Muslims and all azadaran they should not wear black suits and not to participate in azadari. Azadaran-e-Imam Hussain (AS) continued azadari despite these threats. However, it is security lapse and lack of action against the terrorist outfits and their leaders and members that is root cause of terrorism. Without awarding capital punishment to the banned terrorist outfits, terrorism cannot be thwarted.
