Pakistan: Thousands perform Zanjeer & Qama Zani to express their devotion to the Imam al-Hussain(as)

By: Salman Alvi


RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Youm-e-Ashura in memory of grandson of Holy Prophet(PBUH) Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) and his 72 diehard companions was observed with traditional religious spirit, devotion and respect throughout the Pakistan including Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan Tuesday. In Rawalpindi/Islamabad, main Youm-e-Ashura procession was taken out from Imambargah Ashiq Hussain Teli Mohallah, Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain and Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah Bohar Bazar. Mourners of Imam Hussain (A.S.) performed Zanjeer-Zani & Qama zani to express their devotion to the Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.). Zuljinah, Alam Mubarik and other Taburrakaat were included in the Ashoora procession.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya, Pakistan, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated in the procession, offered Ziarat of the taburrakaat and performed Matamdari. Talking to media and Azadars on this occasion, Agha Moosavi said that Muharramul Haram is the month of honour and dignity. He said the suicide attack in the Matmi procession in Jacobabad Shab-e-Ashoor and earlier bomb blast near the Imambargah of District Bolan in Balochistan is the conspiracy of our perpetual enemy that cannot shatter the enthusiasm of Azadaran. He said Imam Hussain (A.S.) had stated 1400 years ago that a person like him cannot give himself in Baiaíat of a person like Yazid. Nawasa-e-Rasool Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) presented such a sacrifice in the hot plains of Karbala that provided protection to all revealed books and the Shariat forever. Today the whole humanity is proud of Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.), he added.

Agha Moosavi made it clear that the real founder of terrorism in Pakistan was Ziaul Haq who sponsored terrorists. We demand that calling any Muslim as non-Muslim should be declared as a cognizable offence and protest may be launched against those countries that are provided aid to terrorist groups in Pakistan while restriction should be imposed on foreign aid. He said the terrorists and their facilitators are roaming about freely and there is need to tighten noose against them. He said implementation on the National Action Plan be made in line with its spirit, Operation Zarb-e-Azb will definitely succeed and the Pakistanís Armed Forces should not feel them alone. He said RAW is involved in incidents of terrorism in Pakistan, there are 19 Indian consulates in Afghanistan that have become the hub of terrorists, threatening phone to the Governor House Karachi from Delhi provides food for thought. He advised the politicians to become brave and do not bow down before the oppressor. He said the whole world peace has been spoiled by those who worship calf and cow. He lamented that some internal elements are busy in thwarting Zarb-e-Azb. He said the Modi government is a threat for world peace while the present rulers are also following in the footsteps of Modi by imposing restrictions on Azadaran. He vowed that no one can divert us from the path of Hussainiyyat.

The TNFJ chief said that the war of a few groups cannot be termed sectarianism because all schools of thought are united from the defence of the frontiers to the development of the country like they were united at the time of creation of Pakistan. He advised the rulers to form a united alliance with Iran and Russia to keep Pakistan safe. Answering a question about the security arrangements, Agha Moosavi said that banning mobile service and such other steps are no permanent solution but are temporary in nature. Answering another question he said the government and opposition should not allow the banned groups to sit along with them nor they should be given media coverage. He said the condolence meetings and other religious rites for the Shuhada who lost their lives in incidents of terrorism in Bolan, Naseerabad and Jacobabad will be performed after the conclusion of Ayyam-e-Aza i.e. after 8th of Rabiul Awwal.

A large number of mourners engaged themselves in heavy Zanjeer-Zani and Qamah Zani at Bohar Bazar Chowk, Trunk Bazar, and Habib Bank Chowk. The procession turned into a big rally after reaching Fawwara Chowk where addressing the participants, Central Secretary Information of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan, Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said the invaluable sacrifice of Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) was for survival of religion of Islam and humanity. Ch. Mushtaq Husssain also addressed the gathering while Wajih Kazmi recited Noha-Khwani.

A resolution presented by Abu Naseem Bokhari, the District Secretary of TNFJ Rawalpindi condemned the government for misusing the National Action Plan for imposing restrictions on use of loudspeaker, and putting innocent persons in the Fourth Schedule. It also lamented that even a rickshaw driver was booked for plying a Noha in his vehicle. The resolution said the whole nation is standing behind the Pakistanís Armed Forces in their operation Zarb-e-Azb and demanded that the operation may be extended to the whole country to root out the terrorists from the country.

The resolution lamented that restriction was imposed even on those Zakireen who have died many years ago that made the government a laughing stock on the one hand and created many difficulties for Azadars on the other. The resolution was critical of the government for continuous violation of provision 7 and 11 of the National Action Plan by inviting the banned leaders of terrorist organisation on the media. The resolution demanded to take steps for lifting ban on the processions of Azadari Syed-us-Shuhada in the Held Kashmir imposd some 25 years ago and also demanded lifting of restrictions on Bahrainís Shaikh Ali Salman and demanded immediate release of Ayatollah Baqar Al-Nimr from Saudi Arabia. The continuation of cricket match during the Ashra-e-Muharram was also criticized. Thousands of Matamdars reiterated their resolve to offer all types of sacrifice on the call of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi for promotion of Wilayat-e-Ali and promotion and protection of Azadari.

Later, after performing Zanjeer-Zani at different places, the participants of the main Ashoora procession reached Raja Bazar and Purana Qila where Zuljinah processions taken out from Imambargah Kashmirian Tyre Bazar and Darbar Shah Chan Chiragh also merged into the main procession. The main Chehlum procession terminated at Imambargah Qadeem after passing through Jamia Masjid Road and Imambara Chowk. Mukhtar Students Organisation District Rawalpindi had set up Azadari Camp at Fawwara Chowk while Ibrahim Scouts had set up Medical Camps at Habib Bank Chowk, Raja Bazar and Jamia Masjid Road to facilitate the Matmis. Office-bearers of Divisional and District Muharram Committees of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya and MFP jawans remained along with the procession throughout.
