Some of the prominent poets of all major languages belonging to different regions paid homage to Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and the martyrs of Karbala. “the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) is commemorated across the across the globe not only by Muslim but by Non- Muslims as well. Beloved grandson of Prophet (PBUH) is loved by every community across the universe and he does not belong to any one sect or religion but to the entire universe. Muharram is a universal Phenomenon” Gulshan Badrani said.
Stressing upon the need of unity among Muslims, Gulshan Badrani said. “we follow the same Quran and every Muslim regardless of the sect is indebted to Hazrat Imam Hussain(AS) because his supreme sacrifice ensured the survival of Islam. Speaking on the occasion Gulshan Badrani urged upon Muslims to follow the path shown by Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) in daily lives, not only in Muharram.
“The first thing Imam Hussain (AS) teaches us is to never become the oppressor. Being oppressed is better than being the oppressor because the later is despised by Allah, his Prophet (PBUH) and Holy Ahlul-Bayt. He said the Hussain(AS) exemplifies the purest and most selfless form of struggle against evil and every Muslim is forever indebted to the king of martyrs who sacrificed everything in Karbala to keep Islam alive.
