Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday said that the teachings and philosophy of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) is a beacon of light for resisting dictatorship, tyranny, oppression and totalitarianism.
In his message on Youm-e-Aashur, the former president said that Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) introduced golden principles for humankind. Battle of Karbala was a war between right and wrong and the evil forces were defeated in this battle.
He said that Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) taught us to stand up to injustices and despotism and today the forces of evil are surfacing once again in the shape of terrorism, extremism and so-called Jihadi organisations who want to impose their agenda by the bullet. Youm-e-Aashur demands that we should fight these forces with full force and commitment.
Former President Zardari asked the nation to forge unity because the need for unity and harmony which is vital today was never required before.
