In spite of their diversity, they united for the love of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).

Hasan al-Qazwini, in which he said: "Our presence in Karbala, the city of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them), in the festival of the Martyrdom's Spring, is an embodiment of the following holy verse: {O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.} (49:13) (to read his speech, please click here).

This was followed by a speech of Mr. Muyassar al-Hakim, member of the preparatory committee of the festival, who gave a brief description of the urban projects constructed by the two holy shrines' managements in order to provide various services to all visitors of the holy city of Karbala, including urban, service and cultural projects such as the visitors' cities that serve the visitors of Karbala, which are spread on the mina roads leading to the holy city of Karbala. And we are now in one of these visitors' cities: The city of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) for the visitors."
