KARACHI: Renowned religious scholars from different schools of thought have denounced the statement that declared the battle of Karbala as a war between two companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). They said it was a battle between the right and the right in which Imam Hussain (AS) represented the right while Yazid represented the wrong.

Talking to Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain in Geo’s informative programme Aalim Online, Allama Kokab Noorani Okarvi expressed grief over the ‘irresponsible statement’ declaring Karbala as a battle between two companions of the prophet (PBUH). He said Yazid was ‘fasiq’ and ‘fajir’. He said Yazid did not fulfill the criteria to be an ordinary Muslim. “Giving Yazid the status of a companion of the Prophet (PBUH) and his comparison with Imam Hussain (AS) is an open attempt to mislead the masses,” he asserted.

He said it was totally wrong to value a personal opinion in comparison with principles of the Quran and Sunnah. In response to a question, he said that there was room for amendment in articles of the Constitution that did not comply with the Quran and Sunnah; however, it was not right to declare that the entire Constitution was un-Islamic.

He noted that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was the interpreter of the Quran, and that Allah Almighty assigned him the permission to formulate laws. Talking to Dr Hussain on telephone, Allama Tahir Ashrafi said the country was in a state of war, but some elements were behaving irresponsibly. He said it was an example of ignorance to compare the present situation with Karbala. He stated that he felt sorrow over such un-Islamic statements. He said the Ummah is agreed that Yazid was ‘Fasiq’ and ‘Fajir’ and perpetuating un-Islamic talk on this issue and presenting justifications was unfortunate.

In an online talk with Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain, Allama Shabbir Hassan, central leader of Shia Ulema Council, said that Yazid was ‘Fasiq’ and ‘Fajir’ those who were giving Yazid the status of a companion of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) should repent before Allah, and should apologise to all Muslims for hurting their feelings.

In the start of the programme, Dr Amir Liaquat said that such irresponsible statements would divide and confuse the nation. He was of the view that some elements were busy in making the Quran and Sunnah clash with the Constitution. He further said that there was a need to make decisions keeping in view the guidelines of the Quran and Sunnah.<wbr>Todays-News-2-234818-Karbala-<wbr>a-battle-between-right-and-<wbr>wrong&ct=ga&cd=<wbr>CAEYACoTODA2OTk2MTUwNDU0N zg5ND<wbr>Y2MzIdODkwMzA3MGM4NjYzNzI0OTpj<wbr>b20uc Gs6ZW46UEs&usg=AFQjCNE-<wbr>K16RATfiuaon4JrkX5zwtxD1SQ
