KARGIL PAYS TRIBUTE TO IMAM HUSSAIN A.s
Kargil: Thousands of people in Kargil, dressed in black, took the mourning processions on the tenth day of the lunar month of Muharram, to mourn the biggest tragedy of humankind on Ashura on 15 November, 2013. Ashura marks the day when Imam Hussain, along with 72 of his companions, was martyred in a battle against the second Umayyad caliph in Karbala some 14 centuries ago. Imam Hussein is referred to as “Lord of Martyrs” by Shia Muslims and is remembered as the symbol of freedom and dignity. Zuljana and Taazia processions took place from the adjoining villages of Kargil town, passing through Main Bazaar Kargil, Islamia School Kargil and concluded at Inqlab Manzil and Hussaini Park. The two main organizers of the processions were Anjuman Jamiyat Ullumma Asna Ashriya (Islamic Society of Kargil (ISK) and Imam Khomeini Memorial Trust Kargil. Different organizations and voluntary groups has arranged stalls who offered water, Kehwa, food items etc and has placed vehicles for carrying the mourners to health camps. "Whatever we are doing for Imam Hussein is nothing compared with what he has done. We are all blessed by what we are doing here to serve food for his lovers and followers”, said one of the volunteer. At the concluding day of Ashura, Hujattul Islam Wal Muslimeen Sheikh Nazir Mehdi threw light on the importance of the day as well as on the philosophy of Karbala. He said that to maintain peace and humanity one should follow the path of Imam Hussain the leader of humanism. Vice President Islamia School Kargil offered Ziyarat-e-Ashura and later General Secretary ISK Hujjatul Islam wal Muslemeen Sheikh Toha thanked the District Administration particularly Deputy Commissioner Kargil Fida, Hussain, SSP Kargil, all volunteers, Stall owners, and volunteers of Youth Wing ISK for their participation for the smooth conclusion of the processions. Special mourning gatherings were also organized at Poyen, Akchamal, Goma Kargil, Balti Bazaar etc where speakers threw light on the life and philosophy of Karbala. Earlier Hujatal Ul Islam wal Muslimeen Aga Syed Mustafa Mosavi during his speech at Imam Khomeini Chowk Kargil said, “we should thank the almighty that we are born in a democratic country where we can freely observe our religious processions without any fear as in our neighboring countries, people are being killed every now and then in Imam Barghas and Mosques making it difficult to observe the processions. We should follow the path of Imam Hussain and should always think for the prosperity and development of our place rather than indulging in pity politics”. Sham-e-Gariban was also observed after the prayers in the evening at all the places of Kargil and the main procession during the Sham-e-Gariban was started from Qadeem Imam Bargha Balti Bazaar and concluded at Islamia School Kargil. - See more at: http://reachladakh.com/kargil-pays-tribute-to-hazrat-imam-hussain
