Zulqarnain Jamil, the central leader of Mukhtar Organization, presented a special message of Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and chief of the Tehreek Nifaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi to the participants of the rally. The message demanded from Islamic organizations and the United Nations to restore the dignity of the shrines of the Holy Prophets, Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), pious Sahaba Kubar (R.A.), and Aulia Karam including Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moallah; a joint Islamic force should be formed to protect the Qibla-e-Awwal of Muslims from the constant damage inflicted by Zionist beasts.
He said all Muslim States should know that the ultimate target of the satanic trio of Zionism-colonialism-Hinduism is the Harmain Sharifain, therefore there is need for the Muslim Ummah to unite against the nefarious plans of the satanic trio. He said that OIC platform should be used to condemn religious fanaticism and extremism and it should be made clear that terrorists who harm religious places have nothing to do with Islam. He said that Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.), the great personality of the Prophet’s (SAAW) family, laid the foundation of such a scientific and intellectual movement on the basis of the Nabavi (SAAW) and Murtazvi (A.S.) knowledge which gave rise to greatness in the East and brought the West out of darkness. They started searching for services and were forced to call Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) ‘Superman in Islam’. As a result of the extremism that started at the behest of the colonial powers, today the holy grave of Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) have become the symbol of despair.
