Resistance to oppression continues 14 centuries after Ashura: Zarif

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Thursday that 14 centuries after Ashura event, resistance to oppression and struggles for freedom continue across the globe.

Zarif made the remarks on his official Twitter account on the occasion of the anniversary of martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS), the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the third Shia Imam, in Karbala on a day known as Ashura some 14 centuries ago.

“Despite the wishes of a long line of oppressors, the battle against tyranny did not end in Karbala, or in 670 CE,” the foreign minister said.

“On #Ashura2021 Hussein's beacon shines on.”
