Immortality is earned by supreme sacrifice: PM

Islamabad, August 30, 2020 (PPI-OT): Prime Minister Imran Khan says immortality is earned by those who give the supreme sacrifice of their lives to stand against tyranny and injustice and it is not earned simply by being rich, powerful or educated. In a series of tweets on the occasion of Ashura on Sunday, he said the sacrifice of Imam Hussain [Razi Allah Ta’ala Anho], his family and followers’ at Karbala gives us several messages. He said throughout history many great Muslims have been inspired by Karbala and sacrificed their lives to stand against oppression, colonial rule, and injustice.

Today, the struggle continues against oppression of occupation and injustice in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said. Imran Khan said that the brave Kashmiris who are fighting against the worst form of military oppression and tyranny should be inspired by Karbala to stay steadfast in their courage because their struggle against tyranny and injustice will succeed as the martyrs of Karbala showed us.
