Bohra community’s spiritual leader arrives in Karachi for Ashura thousands expected to attend

Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the revered spiritual leader of the Bohra community, touched down in Karachi on Thursday evening, marking the commencement of a significant religious event. His arrival was met with a warm reception at the old terminal of the airport by Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori, Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, high-ranking officials, and a large contingent of Bohra community members.

In an official press release, it was announced that Syedna Saifuddin will be delivering a series of sermons over a span of nine days, beginning on July 8, at Taheri Masjid located in Saddar. The sermons, a crucial aspect of the “Ashara Mubaraka” commemorations, will be broadcast live to over 21 centers across Karachi and the nearby city of Hyderabad, ensuring widespread access for community members.

The Bohra community and the government extended a special invitation to Syedna, who chose Karachi to host this year’s Ashara Mubaraka. This prestigious event is anticipated to draw over 80,000 Dawoodi Bohras from Pakistan and across the globe, underscoring the city’s significance as a central hub for the community’s religious activities.

Shabbir Harianawala, the media coordinator for the Dawoodi Bohras, highlighted the extensive preparations undertaken to accommodate the influx of visitors. “Various committees have been established to manage accommodation, transportation, food, and other essential services. We are committed to ensuring that visitors from all parts of the world can participate fully and comfortably in the events,” he stated.

Harianawala also expressed gratitude towards the government and local authorities for their unwavering support and cooperation. “We are grateful for the assistance provided by the government and local authorities in hosting thousands of attendees, ensuring they have a comfortable stay in the city,” he added.

The Ashara Mubaraka congregations, which commemorate the martyrdom of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Husayn, hold profound significance for the Dawoodi Bohra community. This year’s event in Karachi is poised to be a landmark gathering, fostering unity and spiritual reflection among participants.

As Karachi prepares to host this major religious event, the city’s infrastructure and hospitality services are being mobilized to ensure a seamless experience for all attendees, reflecting the community’s spirit of togetherness and devotion.
