Politics today is governed by power and strength. This is decided almost exclusively by military might and financial wealth.

The epic battle of Karbala in 680AD is often seen as one that secured the revival of Islam. But what political message did it hold – if any? Was Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) only fighting for power or does his struggle hold deeper, multi-dimensional messages which remain as relevant today as it was then?
