It is said that Imam Hussain (a.s.) is not restricted to any sect or religion. The grandson of the Messenger of Islam (p), died in the plains of Karbala defending humanity and resisting oppression.
It is no surprise then, that four of the five largest peaceful gatherings of humans in the history of the earth have all been at the shrine of Imam Hussain (a.s.) in Karbala, Iraq.
These largest gatherings of people in the history of the earth were all held to commemorate the fortieth day after the martyrdom of Hussain (a.s.) and his (a.s.) family including his six month old son Ali Asghar (a.s.) at the hands of the blood thirsty army of Yazeed ibn Muawiyah (l.a.)
Imam Hussain’s (a.s.) message is indeed universal. It is a message of emancipation from material slavery. It is a message of intellectual freedom. The struggle of the people of the world against the excesses of capitalism and the global hegemony of an elite that wants people to become nothing more than markets that consume their goods is a universal struggle. It can draw inspiration from Imam Hussain (a.s.), who stood for justice, truth and egalitarianism
