The below photos were taken in this year Friday, 17th December 2010 juloos. Click on photos to enlarge them.
This year’s Bangalore’s Azadari juloos of 10th Muharram was a true global event. There was participation from people of many parts of the globe. There was representation of Indo-Iranian group, there was a group of students from Iraq, there were Kashmiris, and people from all parts of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. It was the mission of Imam Hussain (a.s.) which is bringing all these people together. Imam Hussain (a.s.) gave his and his family and companions life to save the real islam. Yes, real Islam, Islam never wants anyone to be oppressed, Islam wants everyone to be kind to poor, disabled and orphans, Islam says killing of one human is equivalent to killing of entire human race!!
In Iranian style of matam, neither blood is taken out nor aggression is shown. You can how cool and compose they are. But believe me those bunch of chains that they using to hit themselves are really heavy and must be very painful.
This year Iraqis too participated in Ashura juloos of Bangalore.
Bangalore Shab-e-Shahadat is one of the best in India. Below video was taken just after juloos started moving. 9th Muharram in Bangalore is observed in only one place i.e. Johnson Market, so everyone attends it and it makes it a very successful event. I will upload more this year’s 9th Muharram and 10th Muharram videos soon.
Following are the photos of Shab-e-Shahadat (9th Muharram night) in Bangalore. Bangalore’s Shab-e-Shahadat is one of the best in India, at least south India. My photos definitely does not reflect the grandness of the 9th Muharram night in Bangalore, but I thought of putting up whatever photos I took. The majalis, the intense matam, the josh, the enthusiasm, the grandness, the sabeel, the energy at its best. These photos are just tip of the iceberg.
The photos were taken yesterday 16th December 2010, on the night of 9th Muharram. Bangalore 9th Muharram night is not to be missed event, you can see people from many parts of India and also outside India. Along with momineen many other people do attend this event, some for the belief and some other for its grandness and uniqueness.
I liked the above photo over all other photos because of its wordings. Yes, humanity is above all, yes above religion, caste, tribe or anything. Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) and his family members always thought humanity so being a good human must be the first priority of any muslim.
The shabi of a roza (shrine) looking so good with all the lighting arrangement. The above photo was taken at Babul Hawaej in Bangalore.
Alawa is getting ready. This Alawa of Bangalore is one of the best in the country. Well, Alawa is an old tradition in which people walk over burning coal but still does not get burnt. It is one of the many living miracles of azadari-e-Imam Hussain (a.s.).
The photo was taken when 9th Muharram juloos just started moving. Everyone should attend this juloos at least once in lifetime.
This photo was taken well towards the end of the juloos. After this juloos one more very good majlis takes place.
