KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the sacrifices rendered by Hazrat Imam Hussain and his companions called upon every Muslim to keep aloft the banner of truth and resist oppression and falsehood even under the most trying circumstances.
In a message on the Yom-e-Ashur on Sunday, he said that Imam Hussain will also be remembered in history for redefining the meanings of life and death on the one hand and the victor and vanquished on the other.
Today Imam Hussain is alive and victorious while his persecutors are dead and vanquished, he said.
“Tyranny and falsehood appear from time to time under different garbs and a Hussain is needed at every point of time in history,” he said.
We need to emulate the example of Imam Hussain in resisting tyranny, oppression and falsehood, he said.
Let us therefore reiterate our resolve today that we shall neither give in before oppression and injustice nor let the evil have its sway, the PPP chairman said.
“On this day we also pay homage to the immortal martyrs of Karbala. May Allah be pleased with them all,” he said.
