Holy Ashura, commemorating the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), is being observed in Bangladesh with due religious fervour and solemnity.
On this day in the year 61 of the Islamic calendar, Hazrat Imam, grandson of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), along with his family members and 72 followers embraced martyrdom at the hands of Yazid’s soldiers in the desert of Karbala to uphold the teachings of the Prophet (SM).
The government prohibited all kinds of processions including Tajia procession on Ashura this year in light of the Covid situation. All other necessary religious rituals on the occasion could be performed maintaining hygiene rules, the Religious Affairs Ministry said earlier.
The photos were taken on the premises of Hussaini Dalan in the capital on Friday.
