The Jihad fought by Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) along with his companions is a shining example of courage, patience perseverance and determination.
MPA Mansha Ullah Butt said that Ashoora gives us a message of not hesitating to render any sacrifice for upholding the principles of truthfulness and Islamic values. He added that today the Muslim Ummah was passing through a difficult phase and was confronting problems and challenges of extremism and terrorism. He said that today Ummah needed the spirit of Karbala with spirit of sacrifice and unflinching determination to overcome all difficulties. He narrated that the best way to pay tributes to the martyrs of Karbala was to make commitment on this day to work and devote oneself for the development and strength of the country.
