One has to applaud the independence of the Australian justice system in expediting its duties in a timely fashion. Compare that to the Indian justice system which is meandering through a field of political, religious and covert influences.

Re: WEDDING (?) OF JANABE QASIM (as) IN KARBALA

Sources and their authenticity often differ and conflict. The point is whether an event of the magnitude of Janabe Qasim's (as) wedding on the fateful day of Aashura happened or not.

WEDDING (?) OF JANABE QASIM (as) IN KARBALA

One of the concocted stories regarding the epic of Ashura is the story of the marriage of Qasim bin Al-Hasan (as), a story which has no basis and which has not been related by any authentic and reliable sources. In addition, such a thing is not rationally possible because, firstly, Qasim had not rea...
