Babies, children and adults were covered in blood as Muslims used knives to slice open their heads during Ashura.
(Gateway Pundit) – Shia Muslims participate in Ashura every year to mourn the death of their ‘prophet’ Muhammad’s grandson, Hussein Ali.
At least 31 people were killed in a stampede at the Ashura festival in Iraq and more than 100 were injured.
According to reports, dozens of Muslims were crushed after thousands ‘recreated a battle’ in the narrow streets of Karbala.
The Sun UK reported:
The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar.
They mark Husayn’s death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.
Yazid is considered a tyrant by some Muslims, and Husayn’s death is considered by the Shia community to be a symbol of humanity’s struggle against injustice, tyranny, and oppression.
The anniversary is a national holiday in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Pakistan, and typically involves public expressions of mourning.
