Bloody Ceremony In A Muslim Mosque To Mourn Martyr

Shiite Muslims flagellate themselves during a holy procession to pay respect to the Prophet Mohammad and his martyred grandson.

Blood splatters can be seen on the floor of a mosque where Shiite Muslims flagellate themselves during the procession.

The Prophet Mohammad’s grandson, Imam Hussein, was slain in the seventh century by his political rivals. Seventy-two of his companions were also killed. Some of the bodies were also mutilated.

Muslims took part in processions where it also involves walking on burning coals and carrying a ‘Tazia’, a replica of the coffin of Hussein.

The participants gather for ceremonial chest beating as a display of devotion to remember the Hussein’s suffering and that the oppression will not last.

    Offff!! It’s really scary!

  • Virat

    Don’t know, why they do this?

  • Rahim Zafar

    Islam didn’t tell Muslims to kill himself for remembering any of the previous Muslims leader. They can just pray for their soul. But, this is really awkward!
