Secretary General of Ahlul Bayt world Assembly sent a letter to Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri and asked to stop his hunger strike over deteriorating his physical condition.
In his letter sheikh Muhammad Hassan Akhtari referred to the courage and sacrifice of the people of Pakistan and thanked Mr Jafri and other hunger strikers for their perseverance.
The full text of the letter is as follows:
In the name of almighty Allah
Your Excellency Sheikh Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri
Leader of Majlis Wahdat-el-Muslimeen (MWM)
On the twenty-eighth anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Khomeini’s student and late leader of Pakistani Shiite Muslims, martyr Sayyed Arif Hussain Al-Hussaini, the news about your terrible condition and illness have reached to me and the members of the Ahlul Bayt World Assembly and make us worry about your health.
The courage of the Ahlul Bayt followers in Pakistan and their loyalty to the Prophet and his pure family are the things that everyone knows. It is for centuries that millions of Pakistani Shiite Muslims despite the pressure of hegemonic powers and bloodthirsty Takfiris have raised the flag of the Prophet’s family and hold Hussaini rituals continuously and with strong passion; and in this way they have presented tens of thousands martyrs to Islam.
Undoubtedly, the presence of such figures like you and other Ulema scare American, Zionist and Takfiri enemies; because you have the task of guiding the masses by trying to create national unity and solidarity of Pakistan, among both Sunni and Shia Muslims, and always have tried to maintain the calm and peace and friendship among people; but the enemies want to create schism and excommunication by supporting Takfiri terrorists and keep the fire of the fratricidal war ablaze. So they want to get rid of the true religious scholars and moderate, peace-loving and pro-unity leaders who call for brotherhood.
Therefore, your healthiness and blessing presence is more irritating than anything else for the enemies of Quran and Ahlul Bayt (PBUH).
Now, by appreciating your eighty-five days of hunger strike and the resistance of you and other brothers and sisters in different cities of Pakistan, and following the demand of the Shiite religious authority and especially after the promises that the Pakistani authorities have made, especially according to what ‘Mr. Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’, the Minister of the Interior, said yesterday, I ask you to temporarily stop your hunger strike. In case of non-fulfillment of demands you can start your actions again.
Ahulul Bayt World Assembly (PBUH) is always ready to uproot Takfiri terrorism in cooperation with the government of Pakistan.
I hope success for Your Excellency, and glory of whole sincere Muslims, seminary scholars, university professors and especially anti-terrorism Ulema.
