“Imam Hussain (RA) refused to surrender before falsehood and instead preferred to fight for truth and righteousness. He preferred to sacrifice his life in the desert of Karbala to protect humanity and the great religion of Islam,” he said.
Mirwaiz said the best tributes to Imam Hussain (RA) will be to remain steadfast against the “nefarious designs of evil forces and thus protect the J&K from the state terrorism, brutal innocent killing, repression and worst oppression”. “It’s time to remain steadfast and committed towards the movement as history is witness that ultimately only truth triumphs.”
