“In the history of Islam, especially the life of Imam Hussain stands unique, unapproached and unapproachable by anyone. Without his martyrdom, Islam would have extinguished long ago.

As they famously say, Yazid tried to rid Imam Hussain’s name from the world; all he could achieve was people remembering Karbala and Hussain (A.S) till eternity.
