Iranian Cleric Urges Kashmiri Muslims to Stand Up for Their Cause

“Our government, the Leader [Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei], all of us will help you,” the top cleric vowed, stressing that Kashmiri clerics, in particular, must be prepared to sacrifice their lives if they want to obtain the people’s right.

Hawzah News Agency - (Qom - Iran) - Iranian cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Nouri Hamedani said that Kashmiri Muslims should show resilience and resistance if they want to uphold their rights against atrocities and crackdowns.

“If you want to secure your right, you must be prepared for martyrdom and fight,” said Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani on Saturday, during his meeting with a group of Kashmiri students studying at seminary schools.

“Our government, the Leader [Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei], all of us will help you,” the top cleric vowed, stressing that Kashmiri clerics, in particular, must be prepared to sacrifice their lives if they want to obtain the people’s right, reminding them of Iranian clerics who were marching in the front lines of protests during Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani also urged the student to set Imam Hossein (peace be upon him), the Third Shia Imam and the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), as an example for their cause.

Imam Hossein and his companions were martyred in the Battle of Karbala, in Southern Iraq, in 680 AD after fighting courageously for justice against the much larger army of the Umayyad caliph, Yazid I, which some historians estimate to have been 100,000-strong.

The Shia Imam and his companions were martyred in Ashura, the 10th day of the lunar month of Muharram.

Ashura, which is the culmination of a 10-day annual mourning period, is commemorated by Shia Muslims in many countries across the world, including in Iran in particular. This day will be observed in Iran on Tuesday.
