Open Letter: If you are justifiable then why not check atrocities (as)

By: Salman Alvi


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Spiritual leader of Pakistani Shiites Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has written an open letter to United Nations, world leaders, Human rights organizations and rulers on the issue of Sheikh Baqir al-Nimr, Saudi Shiite leader, who has been sentenced to death by Saudi Govt on raising voice for political reforms.

If you are justifiable then why not check atrocities

The human being is considered elite, honourable and respectable. All religions and nations are convinced on the dignity and honourability of the human beings. The biggest Divine Book having the honour of “This is the Book on which there is no doubt” Holy Quran’s subject has also been the human being. That is why murder of a single human being is considered as the murder of the whole humanity.

The whole universe has been created for serving the human being and Allah Created the human being for his worship and the norm of this worship demand that oppression should not be carried out against anyone and the oppressed should be helped. That is why there is a saying of Maula-e-Kainaat Hazrat Ali IbneAbiTalib (A.S.) that become friend of the oppressed and enemy of the oppressor.

Today humanity is being trampled throughout the world and in some countries the human beings are even treated worse than animals. One of the names from among these countries is State of Al-Saudia Al-Arabia where biases are on their height and everyone who is opposed to the government is being subjected to painful torture.

The Saudi Arabian King is called Khadim Al-Harmain but unfortunately no one is allowed to lead his life according to any belief other than their own belief. One who attempts to state his own ideology, is set out on the journey of death. Desecration of Sha’air Allah and razing the same to ground is Saudi Arabia’s habit. Even at present the memorials of initial period of Islam and the Nabavi signs are being wiped out in the name of expansion of the Harmain although these are the joint heritage of the whole humanity on which all international organisations play the role of silent spectators. More than 30 thousand innocent persons are in jails as a punishment for demanding reforms in the eastern areas but no human rights organisation can even notice this protest. A few days ago, announcement was made to send more than 50 persons to the gallows in which Eastern Saudi Arabia’s renowned Shia religious scholar Ayatollah Baqir Al-Nimr and his close relative Ali Al-Nimr are included in addition to AhleSunnahulema. Not only is this but the elderly Shia religious scholaris being subjected to worst torture.

Ayatollah Baqir Al-Nimr is a peace-loving religious scholar whose thinking is followed by a large part of the world that “We believe not on bullets but on the terror and challenge of the word righteousness, believe in justice, we don’t talk about fire or iron, consider the voice of the righteousness stronger than the bullet’s solidness.” Snubbing the voice of persons who keep such peaceful ideologies is tantamount to give leverage to terrorists.

All Representatives of the Allah who had been sent the foremost objective of them had been to restore justice and fair-play. Today the whole world lacks justice and fair-play as a result of which crisis after crisis exists everywhere. Therefore, we strongly appeal to the United Nations, all heads of State, human rights organisations, and Islamic organisations not to give licence for trampling the human rights to Saudi Arabia being the companion of international establishment that allows them to tear apart humanity in Bahrain whenever they so like, attack Yemen whenever they so like, and keep on funding terrorist elements in Syrian openly.

If international organisations and all States desire restoration of peace then Saudi Arabia may be stopped from funding and patting the back of terrorists all around the world, the trampling of human rights in Saudi Arabia may be noticed, all political prisoners including Ayatollah Baqir Al-Nimr may be released. If, God forbid, the righteous voice of Ayatollah Baqir Al-Nimr was tried to be silenced forever and the punishment of hanging was exercised then the whole Islamic World in general, and the Middle East in particular may be surrounded in such an anarchy that perhaps no country of the world could survive from its effects.
