A number of lecturers and students of the Islamic Studies Center in Hamburg, Germany have launched a campaign to introduce the goals and features of Imam Hussain’s uprising. 72 lecturers and students of the Islamic Studies Center launched sessions in order to introduce the teachings of Ashura uprising. They started the campaign on the first night of Muharram (October 26th) and will go on for five nights. The members of the center are planning to hold the sessions in five biggest cities of Germany in the next year’s Muharram. Islam is the largest minority religion in Germany and most of them are Turks followed by smaller groups of Pakistanis, people from countries of the former Yugoslavia, Arabs, Iranians and Afghans. Each year, millions of Muslins mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hussain and his 72 faithful companions on Ashura, which is the tenth day of Muharram. For Shia Muslims, Ashura is a symbol of unwavering resistance of Imam Hussain and his followers against falsehood and tyranny.
