Ashura Procession Handouts

During this year’s successful Ashura procession, many volunteers were involved in spreading the message of Imam Hussain (as) to the general public by means of handouts. AIM would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved and wish them success in their future endeavours. Whilst the overwhelming majority of the work brings hope for the future, there was an incident that we would like to shed some light on. During the procession, there was a handout being distributed entitled: ‘The CORRUPT Islamic State of Britain’, with our website www.aimislam.com cited at the bottom.

During this year’s successful Ashura procession, many volunteers were involved in spreading the message of Imam Hussain (as) to the general public by means of handouts. AIM would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved and wish them success in their future endeavours.

Whilst the overwhelming majority of the work brings hope for the future, there was an incident that we would like to shed some light on. During the procession, there was a handout being distributed entitled: ‘The CORRUPT Islamic State of Britain’, with our website www.aimislam.com cited at the bottom. This handout attempted to convince the general public that Imam Hussain’s battle against Yazid succeeded in stopping the ‘Corrupt Islamic Empire’ in reaching the shores of Britain.

AIM has nothing to do with such publications and would like to categorically state that all its publications are made available through its official website. We welcome volunteers printing material from our website with or without reference to AIM, however we feel that distributing material that is not from AIM and citing the website as a reference is problematic and irresponsible.

Wa Min Allah Al-Tawfiq.
