Anti-oppression movements not confined to Imam Hussein (AS) era
Sunni Lebanese cleric stressed necessity of confrontation with oppression in any era noting that the movement is not limited to the time of Imam Hussein (AS).
Sheikh Ahmad al Qattan, head of Words and Actions Movements in Lebanon, extended condolences over the mourning ceremonies of Imam Hussein (AS), third Shia Imam and grandson of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) expressing hope that Islamic nation ponders and understands the message of Karbala and makes use of the occasion to boost solidarity, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He referred to the uprising of Imam Hussein (AS) against the oppressive rulers of his time and stressed,” Confrontation with oppression and following the right is not confined to the time of Imam Hussein (AS) and people of all times are mandated to rise against oppression and stand with the right.”
Lebanese cleric added,” Today the symbols of the right are represented in the resistance movement and the unjust is represented by the Zionist-American enemies who struggle to disperse the Muslim nation and turn it into disintegrated groups.”
He warned against expansion of terrorist Takfiri (excommunication) thoughts and stressed,” Threat of this enemy is not less that the threats posed by the Zionists since the former permits bloodshed of Muslims under the name of Islam.”
