Shia Muslims of Pakistan, like other parts of the world, are commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Imam Moosa Kazim (AS), the 7th infallible Imam of Shia Islam today.
Clad in black suits, Shiites mourn the brutal assassination of Imam Moosa Kazim in the illegal custody of Abbasid dynastic and despotic regime in Baghdad, centuries ago. Son of Imam Jafar Sadiq (AS) and father of Imam Ali Reza (AS), Hazrat Imam Moosa Kazim, was jailed because the despotic dynastic tyrants of Abbasid regime considered him a threat to their illegitimate and non-representative dictatorial regime.
Mourning congregations and processions are brought in Pakistan to mark the martyrdom anniversary. Religious scholars highlight various aspects of holy life of Imam Moosa Kazim (AS).
