ISLAMABAD, Oct 12 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif said that the issues pervading the country could be addressed successfully if the nation forged unity and harmony, following the teaching of Imam Hussain (R.A).
In his message to the nation on Yaum-e-Ashura 1438 Hijri, the prime minister said Pakistan was achieved to meet the high goals for what the family members of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) sacrificed their lives.
“On this day, we will have to shun our sectarian, ethnic and
provincial differences and have to inculcate equality, harmony, discipline and the traits of sacrifice in ourselves. The tragedy of Karbala teaches us the very lesson,” the prime minister remarked.
He said for supremacy of the truth, Imam Hussain (R.A)
preferred sacrificing his life to succumbing to the oppression. He (Imam Hussain R.A) gave the world a lesson that freedom was a fundamental right and was in accordance with the true spirit of Islam, the prime minister added.

protection of one’s own life and the martyrdom of Holy Prophet (PBUH)’s grandson gave us the very message.
He said such a sacrifice and steadfastness shown by Imam
Hussain (R.A) was unprecedented in the world history and Imam Hussain’s message was a guiding principle for the whole humanity.
Keeping in view the prevailing circumstances, the said it was
need of the hour the nation forged unity in its ranks so that no enemy could cast an evil eye on their country.
