Efforts are being made now a days to stop mourning processions in Pakistan. I would like to quote a Sunni scholar here, he stated that whoever tries to bathe an unclean dog, the dog is not clean, but he himself becomes impure and unclean. The same is true for those who stop of mourners and they will be worse off in support of Yazid. Who so ever stopped mourning in Pakistan or anywhere in the world cannot be Hussaini they are Yazidi. He added that Global Husseini Mission needs the moral support from all of you. We do not need any donations from you. Please visit our Husseini House, eat niaz Hussain and pray for us.
