25 November, 2012
ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari has urged Muslims to learn from the example of supreme sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and Ahl-e-Bait and continue to struggle for higher values and triumph of goodness over evil.
In a message on the occasion of Ashura, the Karbala event was the most important in the history of Islam and reminds of the ultimate sacrifices of the Ahl-e-Bait (AS). "The incident teaches all Muslims to render sacrifice for higher values and triumph of goodness."
"While filled with sorrow for Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS), let us pledge that we will not hesitate to render any sacrifice in the fight between good and evil and always continue our struggle for the triumph of goodness while keeping before us the examples of steadfastness of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and patience of Ahl-e-Bait (AS). Let us pledge that we will always battle against Yazeediat, oppression and evil," he added.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said the best way to pay tribute to Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) is to follow his character and maintain unity and discipline in ranks to achieve glory of Islam.
In his message on Ashura, he said, "While filled with the sense of sacrifice, let us utilise all our energies for the glory of Islam and welfare of nation and make Pakistan a place of peace and security in real terms."
Raja said a battle between good and evil is still going on in the country.
