Petition filed in Sindh High Court to nullify FIRs
Shia Muslims participate in the annual mourning processions, specially on Ashura and Arbaeen (Chehlum).
They walked to join Arbaeen azadari in commemoration of Imam Hussain-led Martyrs of Karbala.
But police registered FIRs against them why they walked to join Arbaeen mourning processions.
Meanwhile, Shia Ulma Council (SUC) leaders Allama Shabbir Maisami, Allama Nazir Taqvi, Allama Abid Raza Irfani, Allama GM Kararvi and Allama Kamran Abidi also accompanied Zulfiqar Rizvi.
They expressed solidarity and support for legal course of action to seek justice in the case.
Meanwhile, Shia Muslims and their supporters say that they commemorate Imam Hussain-led Martyrs of Karbala trough annual events.
They said nothing new happened in the year 2020 but the government and the police launched an unprecedented discriminatory witchhunt.
Therefore, they said they would not tolerate such dirty tactics to prevent Shia Muslims and their allies and supports from enjoying religious freedom.
