Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Sadiq Husseini Shirazi, may Allah prolong his life, delivered a speech on the revival of the eleventh night of Muharram in the holy city of Qom.
The ceremony was attended by a number of scholars, seminary students, and crowds of the lovers of Ahlulbait, peace be upon them.
His Eminence said in the speech that the enmity for the establishment of the Husseini rituals is a conspiracy of the British colonization, for it received two painful blows from the Husseini rites, the first is the issuance of the prohibition of the Tinpako and the second: the revolution of the 1920 in Iraq.
After these two blatant losses that hit Britain's colonial state, Britain was determined to enmity and fight against the Hussaini rites, but it did not succeed at all.
His eminence also spoke of Mu’awiyah and his state of falsehood, and mentioned that the so called caliphate of Mu’awiyah is the reason behind all the radicalism and false states that followed him.
