Karbala Rajab 3 mourning gatherings slam Saudi edicts on Samarra

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Marking Al-Imam Ali Al-Hadi (AS)’s martyrdom anniversary on Rajab 3, grand spiritual mourning programs were held across the country particularly in the holy cities of Karbala and Samarra.

Holding black Husseini standards to signify their deep grief on the martyrdom of sahib-el Qabr Al-Mahdoom Al-Imam Al-Hadi (AS), large number of mourners participated in the main procession in Karbala.

The mourning procession strongly condemned Arab and Islamic silence on the demolition of Al-Askariyain shrine in Samarra and denounced fatawa (edicts) from extremist Saudi clerics which increase sectarianism and target Al-Mazhab Al-Ja’fari and Ahlul Beit (AS).

The participants demanded from the government immediate reconstruction of the sacred shrine.

The procession first reached at the holy shrine of Abi’l Fadhl Al-Abbas (AS) and then culminated at the holy Husseini shrine extending to them condolence marking the occasion.
