Muharram procession

Actually, it is history behind this picture. Muharram is a festival of grief because Hazrat Imam Husain was martyred with 72 brave soldgers in Karbala, Iraq 1400 years ago. Thousands of peoples attend this procession in muharram all over world. In this picture shia muslims carry a image of coffin of Imam Husain in procession.
