In one of his books called “Son of Karbala”, he narrated his early life in Karbala, after the second worldwide war. In the second chapter, he explained Ashura as a great event that affected Karbala in various ways. He introduced Ashura as an event beyond military enforcement during which Imam Hussain wiped Ben Yazid’s name off the earth forever.
