Over the past two days, a group of young actors in the Indonesian city of Bandung, presented a theatrical show, recalling the struggle and jihad of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) and the painful tragedy of his martyrdom on the battlefield in holy Karbala.
‘Jakarta’ news network said in a report translated by Shia Waves Agency that “The theatrical performance re-enacted the painful massacre of Al-Taff and the memory of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) and its reflections on reality.”
The report added, “The play was presented by a group of young Indonesian actors, and was written and directed by journalist and writer, Rosed Abe.”
The news network described Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) as the beloved of the Noble Prophet (peace him and his family), who was killed by the army of Yazid bin Muawiyah in holy Karbala in the year (61 AH).
The report stated that “the play succeeded in restoring the audience’s memories of this bloody tragedy.”
The theatrical performance also touched on “the injustices Imam Hassan (peace be upon him) was forced to endure, as he was assassinated by Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan, who obtained caliphate through cunning and ferocity.”
The reported concluded that “Yazid bin Muawiyah is also no different from his father. He sought to establish his rule and obtain, in various ways, the legal recognition of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him). When failed to obtain the Imam’s recognition, he dispatched his army to kill him and his family members and his faithful companions.”
