Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar said, “People, irrespective of their faiths, should learn to love as the human life is short and there is no time to hate. People should emulate Imam Hussain in fighting corruption and oppression.”
Ravishankar also said that anything can be achieved with love. He noted that Imam Hussain was able to unite both the Sunnis and Shias in an Iraqi village by bringing back 800 Sunni families who were driven away during war. Former M P Moulana Ubaidullah Khan Azmi Saheb asked people to stand up against injustice and those who disturb the secular fabric of this country in the name of religion or kill the people in the name of religion.
