Millions of Iranian Shiite Muslims mark Shiite Ashura Day”

Ashura, the 10th day of first month of Islamic calendar, Muharram, is being observed today.

Hussain was killed on the tenth day which is observed as the day of mourning.

Hussein was the third Imam of Shia Muslims. Similar processions in which men carrying black flags and beating their chests in ceremonial mourning were taken out in other parts of West Bengal.

Hezbollah supporters listen to the story of Imam Hussein during activities to mark the ninth of Ashura, a 10-day ritual commemorating the death of Imam Hussein, in a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon, Saturday, Sept. The procession started from Bibi ka Alawe to reach Chanderghat. The "Bibi ka alam" is believed to contain a piece of wooden plank on which Bibi Fatima Zehra, daughter of Prophet Mohammed, was given the final ablution. They flagellated themselves while passing through different roads and streets of the old city. Water and "sharbat" were distributed from the stalls set up at various places in the old city of Hyderabad, which has the second highest population of Shia Muslims in the country after Lucknow.

According to Rawalpindi commissioner's office and police security branch, 79 processions and 206 Majalis were held on 9th of Muharram, while 65 processions and 113 Majalis were held on Youm- e- Ashur. Kolkata Police have made necessary security arrangements on the river banks where the immersion would take place, an officer said, adding most of the prominent community pujas have decided not to immerse the goddess on Sunday. However, few committees came forward to take permission and ended chances of clashes.

Tens of millions of Muslims have expressed mourning as they recall the martyrdom of Imam Hussein and 72 of his family members and companions in 680 AD.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said Muharram marks "justice against injustice" and truth standing up against falsehood.
