Imam Husain, the Grand Son of Holy Prophet laid down his life along-with his 71 companions, at Karbala on 10th Moharram 61Hijri, giving lesson to mankind that mightiest tyrant ruler can be defeated by self sacrifice. Late Dr.Radha Kishan, former president, and great thinker & philosopher said, “ Arms are not needed to fight against Adharma (falsehood) if we are prepared to offer sacrifice Like Husain”, 30000 strong army of Yazeed tyrant ruler of Arab, killed Imam Husain and his 71 companions with three days continued hunger and thirst. But failed in his nefarious plans to undo reformations done by Holy Prophet. Entire World remembers sacrifices of Husain.
