By: Syed Rizwan Rizvi

BANGKOK, Thailand: In the 100 year history of Azadari in Bangkok, Ashura procession (Jaloos) was taken out for the first time on the 26th of January 2008 to pay homage to Imam Hussain (a.s.) and the martyrs of Karbala.

This historical event was organized by the organizing committee of Imambargah Sahib-uz-Zaman (Bangkok) and mourners from India, Pakistan, Thailand, Iran, Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries gathered to commemorate the great sacrifice of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and the martyrs of Karbala.

Shabeeh-e-Zuljanah and Alam were taken out on the roads of Bangkok City for the first time. The procession started from the Surawongse Road and passing through the Mahesak road and adjacent streets, terminated at the same Imambargah Sahib-uz-Zaman in about 3 hours.

Majalis in Urdu and Thai language were recited by ulemas from India and Thailand and Nohas were recited in Urdu, Hindi, Persian and Thai languages by native reciters.

Most interesting aspect of the event was that the Thai reciters recited Nohas in Urdu and Persian language as well.

Videos and Pictures of Azadari in Bangkok have been brought on the internet for the first time.
