As the Muslims around the world observe Muharram today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the “great importance” Hazrat Imam Hussain placed on equality and brotherhood. In a tweet, Prime Minister Modi said that Muharram is a day to recall the sacrifices of Imam Hussain, a 7th century revolutionary leader and grandson of Prophet Muhammad, and his unwavering commitment to truth and his fight against injustice.

“Today is a day to recall the sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS). He is remembered for his unwavering commitment to truth and his fight against injustice. He also placed great importance on equality and brotherhood,” PM Modi tweeted.

Imam Hussain is known for his sacrifice for social justice against Yazid. On this day, Muslims are prohibited from taking part in activities like warfare and use it as a period of prayer and reflection.

Several political leaders, including Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal also remembered Imran Hussain's sacrifice for truth and justice.

“On the occasion of Muharram, I bow to the martyrs of Karbala and the sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Hussain. It is an appeal to the people of the state to remember the sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Hussain and adopt his ideals,” Kumar posted on Twitter in Hindi.

Kejriwal wrote, “The life of Hazrat Imam Hussain Sahib is a great example of simplicity and struggle. His sacrifice for truth and justice will always be remembered.”
