Bismillah ar Rahman ar Raheem wa behee nastaeen
All praise to the most Beneficent Allah who is Rahman and Raheem for the entire creation, for it is He alone who is worthy of praise! May He enhance his enormous blessings on Hazrat Mohammad (SAWA) and his purified progeny especially Hazrat Baqiyatullah (AJ). We pray to be related with Mohammad and aale Mohammad (AS) and express our discontent with their enemies.
We are approaching the start of the year 1434 Hijri and Moharram ul Haram which comes right after the momentous month of Zilhaj al Haram. The connection between the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and Hazrat Ismail (AS) and that of the Master of Martyrs Hazrat Imam Husain (AS) is distinct, in the words of Iqbal:
"Sidq-e-Khalil Bhi hay ishqe, sabr-e-Husayn bhi hay ishq
Marika-e-wujud maiyn Badr-o-Hunayn bhi hay ishq"
"Gharib-o-sada- o-rangi`n hay dastan-e-Haram
Nihayat iski Husain ibtida hay Ismail"
The coming days bring with them a vivid reminder for all in the light of the Husaini (AS) Movement and the following verse of Sura Inshiqaq:
All the humanity is striving towards its Lord with great effort and shall meet Him. All that is in ones hand in this world is to choose either the path of salvation or the path of destruction. Imam Husain (AS)`s movement has shown the history the epitome of humanity, the path and the destination of the "Perfect Human". This path is the "Straight Path" for which we all seek guidance from Allah, in the words of the glorious Quran:
After this premise we turn to the situation of the world in general and Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Middle East in particular. We see the world imperialists exploiting and spending the human and environmental resources to reach their short sighted, materialistic and ugly goals.
The game that is being played by the western powers in Syria in the name of "Freedom of Speech" and democracy with the help of regional "champions of human rights and democracy" is resulting in further instability in the Middle East and causing enormous loss of life. The fanning of violence in Syria is also resulting in an increase in terrorist attacks in Iraq. The regional antagonists of Syria must remember that the fire they are instigating there will, in the end, turn their fiefdoms into ash as well.
The anarchic situation in Pakistan is a result of a complex interaction of external factors, perverted priorities of the state and the deteriorating socio-economic structure of the society. The powers that be in this country will do well to heed to the call of sanity and start putting this house-on-fire in order. That will require courage, statesmanship and political will, otherwise consequences of pathetic leadership and misgovernance are for all to see and feel and if these trends persist all could perish!
We are witnessing shahadats on almost daily basis but these Shahadats have not been able to lower the Morale of Millat e Jaffaria Pakistan rather with every other Shahadat there is remarkable increase in awareness about the essence of Shahadat, faces of the local and regional enemies of Islam, Pakistan and Millat e Jaffaria Pakistan have been exposed (among them some secular and fascist yazidi elements hitherto considered sympathetic to the Millat e Jaffaria Pakistan by a section of Millat have also been abundantly exposed on record for their tacit and overt support to the killers of our martyrs). There is increased awareness regarding the sheer incompetence of administrative and security apparatus in containing the trend of terrorism against momineen as well as clear and deliberate involvement of certain yazidi elements within these apparati in many instances of martyrdom of momineen. These things are not secret anymore that there is a perfect nexus of terrorists of all forms and manifestations within this beloved land of ours ,with certain yazidi elements within state`s security apparatus directly providing shelter to them and hence all the mayhem. It is impossible even for a hardened criminal to think of dare devil attacks like the ones of GHQ, Mehran Base, FIA building Lahore, CID office Karachi and Rangers headquarters nazimabad without the definite complicity of yazidi elements within these apparatus who are bent upon rocking an important pillar of state this way. But our problem is that, these have not been lesson enough for us and its ironic, ridiculous and insane as to what are we really upto, if news papers are anything to go by. Only yesterday`s papers contained news of commitment with Afgan High Peace Council regarding release of Taliban`s commanders in Pakistan`s custody, as part of bargain to negotiate the troubled relations with western neighbour to normalcy. Talk of sanity !
The greatest casualty in the process is the ever widening trust deficit between a common man and state institutions. Which pillar of state will you have your trust on in such a scenario ? When everyone irrespective of position and place is seeking only petty interests ,putting on back burner the woes of common man. It is a well thought out scheme , no loss is greater than this loss of trust .As for millat e jaffaria it has been tried and tested by tribulations over and over again and has emerged stronger each time . It does not really look upto anyone because of continued betrayals it has witnessed and is resilient enough to brave worst forms of terrorism on continued basis , for its the only segment in the society which attaches glory to death coming for being on the side of truthfulness. It is nothing new for Millat e Jaffaria ,its the third decade that Millat is facing systematic victimisation across the landscape of Pakistan.
What is new and more alarming ,that these terrorists have now even turned their guns to our precious national institutions too ,with support from yazidi elements from within these institutions.
Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan offers its sympathies and heartfelt condolences to all these national institutions on loss of precious lives and to all ordinary citizens who have become victim of terrorism in one form or the other. We stand shoulder to shoulder with each one of you in this hour and share your grief. It is high time that Pakistanis especially momineen rise to the occassion and really protect these precious national assets of ours by offering everything at our disposal and offering solace to them in this hour of tribulation . Hopefully sanity will prevail and concrete steps will be taken to purge these institutions from yazidi elements ,not in the interest of Millat e Jaffaria which is already used to suffering terrorism and has emerged only more resilient ,but in the best interest of these institutions and the beloved country. In words of Allaama Iqbaal.
tu agar mera nahi banta na ban , apna to ban!
We as muslims and followers of the Master of Martyrs are not afraid of death, as death is only the continuation of life at a higher state of existence:
Prudence and strategy are vital for survival of any group or individual. We must not let the adverse circumstances lower our presence in the public nor think of ourselves as sheep for slaughter. However, various organizations in our midst would do well to coordinate and strategize plans for all eventualities.
In the words of Rehbar e Moazzam Ayatollah al-Uzma Ali al-Husaini Khamenei:"Karbala is a complete constitution of life"we must also recall the words of Imam Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini: "All we have is because of Moharram and Safar"
In the end we remember Karbala as the path of love and salvation that is the path to Allah, it is narrated that Imam Ali (AS) while returning from Siffeen war stopped at Karbala and amongst the other phrases narrated he said "This is place where the lovers shall fall".
Salam on Husain (AS)
Salam on Ali-ibn al Husain (AS)
Salam on the progeny of Husain (AS)
Salam on the companions of Husain (AS)
