Maltreating of Pakistani Pilgrims for Ziarat
Every year in Pakistan also this happens whereby the pilgrims are dealt with harshly, a very hard, severe behavior is done with them. The Pakistani pilgrims when they go for Ziarat they get all the calamities, difficulties in Pakistan before the border. They face many difficulties in getting Visa, they become victims of travel agents, and then they are victimized by embassies and their agents. Then they suffer difficulties on the path, specifically those who go by road they are troubled severely. They are stopped in Quetta and there are various groups in which Shias, government, transporters are all involved to trouble them. Those belivers who are poor only they go by road who cannot afford to pay to go by air. They despite of threats, dangers they go out with limited money and then there is a Mafia in Quetta which loots them with every excuse up to Taftan. Then when they return to Taftan they are further tortured. This is done every year and now also news are coming; they are stopped with the excuse of security and then Mafia’s coming to fetch money from all possible reasons. All this is happening because one reason is for this Haraam usurpers. The second reason is that due to these reasons they want to become effective on this gathering Arbaeen. This has started already in many Arab and other nations to create problems for the believers travelling so that their quantum reduces every year due to fear and difficulties. Amongst this one thing which the media, columnists and the enemies of Ahlulbayt, Pakistan, terrorists, their supports, preachers, name sake leaders spread an impression in Pakistan to stop this gathering.
The evil message which they spread is that these pilgrims go to Iraq to join the forces who are fighting against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. If this issue of ISIS in Iraq, Syria was to be solved through pilgrims then one Arbaeen was enough. If these twenty million pilgrims are made to walk as procession from Iraq to Syria then they can wipe off entire Middle East. These pilgrims are going for Ziarat but when they return they are investigated, their files are made, and they are interrogated as to why they went. They are being questioned as to who took you, whom did you meet there, why did you go there and these are filthy things which these agencies do with pilgrims. You want to stop people from Ziarat of Sayyadus Shohada with this harassment. Do you think you will stop people from this Ziarat? Has it ever stopped with these tactics? It is impossible to stop people from this. At the time of Saddam there was silence in Karbala and no one was there on Arbaeen. But see today there is no Saddam, his followers, they all went to hell and the followers of Sayyadus Shohada are doing Azadari there in a dignified manner. That time is not far when this system will be established across the world. Sayyadus Shohada is not a heritage just for Shias, he is for every human being. As per one Christian who has belief in Sayyadus Shohada as well but not as an Imam. He respects Sayyadus Shohada as a leader of freedom, one who fought as an oppression and considers Sayyadus Shohada as an icon of humanity. Wherever in the world any uprising that has taken place aginst oppression there has been an affiliation with Karbala. And this is going on and hence with this oppression on Shias which you have been doing has not finished Shias and neither will this happen. Imam Ali (a.s) says those who pass away safe from swords, battles spread more and there is vastness in their generation. The numbers which you kill there will be multiples born and the earth will be enlightened with them.
