His Eminence advised the those present not to distance themselves from the Husayni movement or the opportunity of the mourning season in the month of Ashura in order not to damage the mourning ceremonies and added, “The world became familiar with Shi’ism through the Muharram mourning ceremonies and therefore, we must not lose the blessed opportunity that the messengers, prophets and the infallible imams cried for.”
