Saniha Ashura-e-Hangu

Shia and Sunni ulemas condemned the attacks and many people took to streets expressing their grief and anger against the oppressors. Millate-e-Jaffaria Pakistan protested countrywide demanding from the government to take action against the culprits. In Karachi, the Central procession of Ashura stopped near the Radio Pakistan at M.A Jinnah Road where Ulema and various leaders demanded serious action to be taken against the enemy and criticized on security lapse on part of the government.

The martyrdom of Hangu is another episode of Kerbala where Imam Hussain gave the lesson of standing up against the evil by sacrificing his life. Ashura gives the message of standing up against oppression and injustice. In order to keep the ideology of Imam Hussain alive, we must continue in our efforts to fight for injustice and keeping the mourning sessions going. This paying tribute to Imam Hussain every year and remembering his sacrifice will keep us as a nation alive-a nation who is always ready to fight against oppression and injustice. This is the lesson that Kerbala gives us.

As part of the ongoing clashes and terrorist attacks,an innocent woman who was the wife of Mirza Mehdi,was martyred in mortar shelling while performing chores in her home.

A curfew was declared by the law enforcement agency after the Pakistan military was not able to take control of the situation in the area.
