No, that’s not true at all. The Shiite thought was threatened to be completely extinguished in that battle. This is about identity, this is about Truth, while most other human conflicts in mankind have been about purely worldly matters.ashoura is just a.battle.like any battle happened along the history.. and in the battles people die and persons get killed..
This is why even though a Shiite may claim to be a an atheist or whatever, he’ll nevertheless always be a Shiite. Too many people have died in defending the Shiite thought, an identity that has been cemented within the human subconscious for centuries!
