ISLAMABAD, September 19: The interior Minister Shehryar Khan Afridi, while talking to, the delegation of Tehreek e Nafaz e Fiqh e Jafariya assured that by establishing Control Rooms in the Interior Ministry, the problems of the mourners of Imam e Mazloom (AS) will be solved on priority basis. Whole universe is the benefactor of Imam Hussain (AS) and the pious progeny of the Holy Prophet (SAWW). To maintain peace during the sacred and the holy month of Muharram ul Harram, all the resources will be utilized . To solve the problems of Shia school of thought, the Minister of State for Interior issued the orders of the appointment of a focal person, establishment of Azadari Control Rooms in interior Ministry and to lift up ban of the Ullama and Zakireen to recite Majalis in prisons. The delegation was led of Syed Bu Ali Mehdi, the Secretary General TNFJ Azadari Cell while Allama Basharat Hussain Imami and Raja Zulfiqar were also the part of the delegation. On the demand of Muharram Committee TNFJ, Shehryar Khan Afridi ensured that the problems related to Muharram ul Haram and Azadari would anon be solved. Leader of the delegation Syed Bu Ali Mehdi iterated the remembrance of the story of Imam Hussain (AS) is an absolute lesson of self-determination, veracious exegesis of the Holy Quran and Sunnah and propagation of the true image of Islam. All the inhibiters of Pakistan, Sunni Shia, observe the grief and sorrow of the tragedy of Karbala without any discrimination. Thus more facilities should be given to promote this mission. This year the religious scholars are not being permitted to go to Adyala Jail and delivered religious mourning sermons because no scholar has visited it for the past two years, which is outrageous and unjust. He said that lower administration is even deliberately associating those mourning assemblies which are carried out at homes with NOC, some of the traditional routes of the processions of Imam Hussain are also being stopped, which have been taken out for the past several decades, which is a complete violation of May 1985 Moosavi-Junajo Accord. These kinds of situations are bringing restlessness among the mourners. Syed Bu Ali Mehdi also asserted that in some of the cities, some of the Ullama and Zakireen are banned for no reason. He also expressed anxiety over the contemporary scenario that in most of the cities the members of the banned organizations are not only the part of Muharram committees, but also have been inducted in peace committees as well which is just opposite to the essence of the National Action Plan. He asked for the true implementation of National Action Plan so that the supremacy of the departments of State could be ensured. He also demanded the withdrawal of innocent people from Schedule Four. The delegation also informed to the Minister of State for Interior that right after the day of Aashurah, a huge crowd of pilgrims who went to Karbala to observe their Ashura, will come back from Karbala to Pakistan, so especial arrangements should be made for their easy migration from Taftan to Quetta, so train service should immediately be started. On the fortieth of Imam e Mazloom (Chahlum), the number of visiting pilgrims to Karbala increases by millions, thus arrangements should be made accordingly. Minister of State for Interior; Shehryar Khan Afridi ensured that the demands made by the TNFJ delegation will be solved and implemented step by step. He appreciated the services of the Quaid e Milat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Moosavi for giving Code of Azadari to establish peace and harmony among all the schools of thought in Pakistan. The delegation said special thanks to the Minister of State for Interior; Shehryar Khan Afridi.
