After the blast that occurred on M.A. Jinnah road yesterday there are people who are raising voices as to why these large gatherings and processions were given a green signal and why weren’t they banned if there was a possible threat! Following is an answer to all such statements.

One who has closely studied the incident of kerbala would understand that the mourners of Imam-e-Hussain must not be terrorized from these blasts & take a back from going to these processions. Yes, it’s no surprise that there was going to be trouble during the processions on Ashura but Imam-e-Hussain also knew that once he sends his 13 yr olds and 18 yr olds out in the battle field in kerabala, they won’t return back home but did that stop imam hussain from doing what was right? He could have easily taken oath (bayat) at the hands of Yazeed, the tyrant, but he didn’t! He sacrificed everything he had but didn’t let the oppressor succeed in his cause!

People are coming out and saying that till majalis we understand but why did they have to go ahead with the procession despite the threats. For this they must understand that the act of terrorism is to terrorize people and any alteration in the acts of Hussainies would signify that the terrorists succeeded in their task. Some say we wish they had kept a low in processions this year! I completely disagree with that. Blast in processions today will lead to blasts in majalis tomorrow & then to completely terrorize Hussainies to an extent that they won’t even come out of their houses! Although, I as a Hussaini know that this will never happen. We will continue to go to majalis, juloos (processions) and involve in azadari no matter how many security concerns there are. And No, I don’t do that to become a martyr or to be called as a shaheed! My aim is plain mourning of my Imaam and martyrs of kerabala. People can continue to think whatever they may!

In the end I’d say that all those who think that why is it so hard for us to take precautions must understand that not conducting processions is not a precaution, it’s a consequence! If someone is really interested in taking precautions then he must advocate tightened security measures & other such measures, not a ban on the procession itself!

Everyone is doing politics on the blood & money of innocent plp.

Political parties are highly involved.

Why a re-known minister belongs to a re-known political party (who own 150 shops at bolton market) sold all of his shop just a month before..

Has he been alarmed, just a month back, however these shops were 40 years old.

Politics is highly involved.

Just watch a video after the blast..


Those who lost lives, cannot be recovered, this lost cannot be filled, its really tragic for their family for whole life, but those whose shops has been burnt, must be recovered. and Govt should help them all.

These businessman were getting threatened from last 2 years to shift the shop. They don't know that in this manner it will be done.

Allah bless us all.

I have deep simpathy for the people who lost their lives.

Immam Hussain spare his live for a cause which was to find his right place...which belongs to him...and I think people are still in search of thier right place.

Its all about the perception. Some see it as mourning. Some see it as again rise of will to achieve what was taken by force and politics.

I hope we will find our true idenity and place one day.

Nice post !

You're absolutely right. Staying locked up indoors would imply that we've lost without even trying.
