A different Ashura for this year

  • Published at 08:08 pm August 30th, 2020

The holy Ashura, which commemorates the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hossain Ibn Ali (RA), was observed across the country on Sunday, without the iconic Tazia procession from Dhaka.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has banned all kinds of Tazia, mourning and pike processions in the Dhaka metropolitan area due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Devoted city dwellers were able to perform religious rites in compliance with the health rules. The DMP urged organizers not to allow anybody to enter the function venue without wearing masks and asked everyone to apply necessary health protective measures

On the 10th day of the month of Muharram in Hijri calendar, Muslims across the world recall the sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hossain (RA), grandson of Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH), along with his family members and 72 followers, who embraced martyrdom in 680 AD for establishing truth and justice in the fight with soldiers of Yazid on Karbala Maidan in Iraq
