Who is Allama Shehenshah Naqvi?

A day earlier, hundreds of Shia protesters gathered at Islamabad’s D-Chowk after prominent cleric Allama Shehenshah Naqvi was banned from delivering speech in the federal capital.

Several hashtags, in support and against, of Allama Shehenshah Naqvi were trending on Twitter for the past few days.

Allama Syed Shahenshah Hussain Naqvi is well-known Shia Muslim Scholar and a Teacher. After completing his M.A degree in Islamiat, he went to Qom, city of Iran, for higher religious education.

Intersect harmony

Syed Shehanshah Hussain Naqvi has underlined the need for the Muslims to forge unity, putting aside their differences to successfully fail the agendas of imperialist forces. He has emphasized the need for unity and fraternity among Sunni-Shia Muslims.  

Few days earlier, attempts were made by foreign elements to once again raise sectarian violence in the country, but along with other scholars, Allama Syed Shahenshah started a campaign against such nefarious agendas and urged the authorities to take action against the “anti-Islam” elements.

Political views

Shehanshah Naqvi is a strong vocal of peace and unity among Sunni-Shia Muslims. He also supports the liberty of Kashmir and Palestine, and said that international organizations must play their role in stopping atrocities in Kashmir, Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Nigeria, and Rohingya.

He believes no oppression can succeed against the spirit of Karbala, and that the oppressed will always be victorious. He claims that terrorism, injustice, corruption and obscenity are all un-Islamic forms of Yazeediyat and can be confronted by carrying the flag of Hussainiyat.

Allama Shehanshah Naqvi was one of the few Islamic scholars who openly condemned and spoke against terrorists and terrorism when it was at its peak in Pakistan. He took a stance and urged the Government to crush every terrorist network.
