In the meantime, in May 1988 under the supervision of federal government and ministry of Kashmir Affairs, thousand of cruel and brutal invaders attacked the Shian Haider e Karar of Northern Areas in the name of so called Jihad.

By the divine blessings of ALLAH and the HUSSAINI passion, few unarmed Momineen thrashed and defeated the cruel invaders who were well equipped with automatic weapons. After the battle, the condition of Millat-e-Jafaria in the region was miserable due to lack of effective leadership and anti Shia local administration. Shaheed Agha Ziauddin Rizvi (Quaid of Gilgit-Baltistan) was conscious of the situation so he returned back to Gilgit in 1989. Shaheed Agha Ziauddin Rizvi worked hard to organize the Millat. He gave wisdom and self belief to nation, his brave leadership gave new blood to youth. So at every sensitive moment, the Great Shaheed Agha Ziauddin Rizvi led the nation from the front. He raised voice against oppression and injustice against the Millat. The nation always followed him. In short under the great leadership of Shaheed Quaid Millat-e-Jafaria of Gilgit Baltistan became very organized.

Meanwhile the enemies of Islam and forces of Yazeed continued their conspiracies against Islam and Millat-e-Jafaria. But the presence of great leadership of Shaheed Quaid Agha Syed Zia ud din Rizvi and passion of HUSSAINI believers failed enemy in each conspiracy. In mid 90’s enemies started the terrorism and target killings against the Shia community. But the presence of a Great Leader & the unity and power of the community did not help them in their cause and they failed in each and every moment.

Curriculum Movement of Agha Ziauddin Rizvi

When enemies of Islam realize that the terrorism in not working well for them, they planned to distort the young and innocent mind of Shia students. The curriculum was designed in a way that it had lot of controversies and it had matter that is against the beliefs of Shia Sect. Students were forced to read and reproduce the beliefs of one sect, which they think is against their beliefs. Shaheed Agha Ziauddin Rizvi was aware of enemies plans, so he started the CORRECTION of CURRICULUM movement. Shaheed raised the issue at every forum. Despite accepting the opinion of separate syllabus, the government had failed to address the issue in right direction. Government used the conventional delaying tactics which led to raise the concerns of Millat-e-Jafaria.

Eventually, the incident of 3 June 2005 occurred when government tried to oppress the issue and thousands of people rise up at voice of their beloved Quaid. The government troops fired bullets on unarmed students and a student WAJID HUSSAIN martyred. Thousand of people from adjoining areas of Nagar, Hunza, Jalalabad and Danyoor gathered at Danyoor to register their anger on arrest of their beloved Quaid and their concern on curriculum issue. When it was known to government that the soldiers of HUSSAINI force are with Shaheed Agha Ziauddin Rizvi, the government brought a partial formula, on which all parties agreed including government and all sects. The formula states that no controversial matter could be taught to any student which he thinks that is against his beliefs. The government failed to implement the formula as it was not sincere with the people and also local administration was afraid of terrorists and enemies of Islam and Pakistan.
