Gilgit witnesses Muslims unity at Youm e Hussain where Sunni and Shia Muslims participated largely.
Gilgit witnesses Muslims unity
Notably, Dadi Javadi Park Gilgit saw huge participation at the annual event held in commemoration of Imam Hussain (AS).
Moti Mahal Masjid Imam Khaleel Qasmi, Ismaili Reginal Council’s Al Waiz Fida Ali, Awami Action Committee chairman Sultan Raees spoke.
Others speakers included: Mushtaq Ahmed of Jamaat-e-Islami GB chapter, ex-caretaker minister Inayatullah Shimali and Imamia Council Gilgit’s Wazir Muzaffar Ali.
Furthermore, Allama Ashiq Hussaini, Allama Nayyar Abbas Mustafavi and Abdul Shakoor also spoke.
They paid homage to Imam Hussain.
Particularly, they all urged humanity to follow Imam Hussain-led Martyrs of Karbala to rid them of oppression and tyranny.
Meanwhile, Allama Rahat Hussaini lauded Anjuman Imamia, Imamia Scouts and Gilgit administration for a successful event.
Takfiri threatens Islamic Unity
Unfortunately, Gilgit has suffered much due to takfiri mindset in the past.
Specially, Daesh-allied takfiri nasbi terrorists of notorious outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba (ASWJ or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi) and biased police cops joined hands. They had sabotaged Youm-e-Hussain (AS) in a college in Gilgit-Baltistan province in 2014.
The DAESH-allied ASWJ/LeJ fanatics stormed into Jatial College in Gilgit where Jafaria Students Organisation (JSO) was holding Youm-e-Hussain.
Furthernore, ASWJ held the College hostage on gunpoint and began raising slogans against Shia Muslims.
Instead of taking due action against the takfiris of outlawed ASWJ, police began firing to force the participants of the Youm-e-Hussain (AS) to leave the College.
Moreover, biased police had harassed law-abiding and peaceful Shia students.
Due to that, Shia parties and leaders condemned the targeted attack and police inaction against the takfiri fanatics.
Meanwhile, they had suggested that police should have adopted measures to prevent takfiris.
