Muharram 2019: According to the Islamic tradition, on the ninth and tenth days of Muharram, Muslims should observe fast. Also they must not forget the poor during these days nor should they oppress any individual who may be below them.
"Elaborate police security and communication arrangements have been made for smooth and peaceful observance of festivals, immersion and tazia procession," Sharma said adding Muharram will be observed on October 1 and October 2.
Two cars and four motorcycles were set ablaze during the clash, IGP (Kanpur) Alok Singh said. Four companies (around 400 personnel) of the PAC and a company of the Rapid Action Force (RAF) have been deployed in the area to maintain peace.
Unlike other festivals, it is not a joyful occasion. Muslims wear black on this day which is the colour of mourning and visit mosques and shrines. They take out processions and flog and beat themselves. See pics here.
