This Is What Great Leaders of India Has To Say about Hussain

Khwaja Moinu'd-Din Chishti (Gareeb Nawaaz Ajmer) says:


{Husain is Shah (spiritual leader), Husain is Badshah (the administrative leader or the king) of this world. Husain is himself "religion" and also the one who gave shelter to the religion. He preferred to give his head but not his hand to Yazeed. The fact is ...Husain is the foundation of The Religion, the foundation of la ilah ilallah}

Mahatma Gandhi (Indian political and spiritual leader) writes: “I learned from Hussein how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru: “Imam Hussain’s (R.A.) sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness.”

Mrs. Sarojini Naidu: “I congratulate Muslims that from among them, Hussain (R.A.), a great human being was born, who is reverted and honored totally by all communities."

Rabindranath Tagore: "Hussain’s sacrifice indicates spiritual liberation. He writes: “In order to keep alive justice and truth, instead of an army or weapons, success can be achieved by sacrificing lives, exactly what Imam Hussain (R.A) did"

Dr. Rajendra Prasad: “The sacrifice of Imam Hussain (R.A.) is not limited to one country, or nation, but it is the hereditary state of the brotherhood of all mankind.”

Dr. Radha Krishnan: “Though Imam Hussain (R.A.) gave his life almost 1300 years ago, but his indestructible soul rules the hearts of people even today.”

Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historian and essayist): “The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Cerebella is that Husain and his companions were rigid believers in God. They illustrated that the numerical superiority does not count when it comes to the truth and the falsehood. The victory of Husain, despite his minority, marvels me!”

Edward Gibbon (English historian and Member of Parliament): “In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Hussein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.” (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, p. 391-392)

Antoine Bara (Lebanese writer): “No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Husain in the battle of Karbala.” (Husain in Christian Ideology)

Sir William Muir (Scottish orientalist): “The tragedy of Karbala decided not only the fate of the Caliphate, but also of Mohammadan kingdoms long after the Caliphate had waned and disappeared.” (Annals of the Early Caliphate, London, 1883, p.441-442)

Edward G. Brown (Professor at the University of Cambridge): “…a reminder of that blood-stained field of Karbala, where the grandson of the Apostle of God fell, at length, tortured by thirst, and surround by the bodies of his murdered kinsmen, has been at any time since then, sufficient to evoke, even in the most lukewarm and the heedless, the deepest emotion, the most frantic grief, and an exaltation of spirit before which pain, danger, and death shrink to unconsidered trifles.” (A Literary History of Persia, London, 1919, p.227)
