A picture of a water kiosk says "Who is Hussain" goes viral
A picture of a water kiosk that states 'Who is Hussain? Drink Water, Think Hussain' has gone viral with the claim that the poster is at the Delhi Railway Station, Newsmeter.in reported.
The caption in the viral post reads, "India's preparation for Islamization. It is necessary to go to Hussain before drinking water in Delhi Railway station. What is Delhi Kejriwal going to do? They want to urge the public to remember Hussain before drinking water."
We tried to find the story behind 'Who is Hussain' and found that this post was also shared by an organization called 'Who is Hussain' on 6 May, 2018. The post was written with a caption, "Imagine the desert of Karbala several centuries ago, where Hussain, son of Ali, and his 71 companions were killed after being kept thirsty for three days. Taking inspiration from Hussain, our volunteers in Raipur (Chhattisgarh) installed a water cooler for passengers at the Raipur railway station."
Inspired by Hussain, the organization set up the kiosk at the railway station to let the poor who cannot afford to buy a water bottle, get to drink water in the scorching heat of May in 2018.
With the soaring temperatures in India, getting to drink cold water feels like heaven. Now imagine the desert of Karbala several centuries ago, where Hussain, son of Ali, and his 71 companions were killed after being kept thirsty for three days.
Through his life to across his death, there was a message for mankind. Before the battle began, one of the enemy troops came across Hussain's caravan. The army commander asked Hussain for water. Hussain asked his companions to give water not only to the soldiers but to their horses too. These soldiers were here to kill him, Hussain knew that. But still he didn't refuse water.
Though few days later, the same soldiers didn't allow Hussain to access the water from the Euphrates. However, inspite of the thirst, Hussain did not leave the path of truth and sacrificed his life for the good cause. He stood up against the tyrant and corrupt ruler of his times.
Taking inspiration from Hussain, our volunteers in Raipur (Chhattisgarh) installed a water cooler for passengers at the Raipur railway station.
