KARACHI: Marking the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Ali, processions and majalis were organised across the country on Tuesday despite a ban imposed by the government on religious processions to check the spread of coronavirus.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRj7I74AmCI
Observing fast, the mourners dressed in black attended majalis remembering the life and martyrdom of Imam Ali before marching on traditional routes amid strict security arrangements.
All those joining the main Yaum-i-Ali procession in Karachi were frisked and sanitised by scouts at barriers and then allowed to attend the majlis at Nishtar Park, which was addressed by Allama Syed Shehanshah Naqvi at 6.30am.
The mourners wearing facemasks and keeping distance started their journey from Nishtar Park, passed through Numaish, Saddar Empress Market, Regal Chowk, M. A. Jinnah Road, Jamia Cloth Market, Light House and City Courts and reached Imambargah Hussainia Iranian in Kharadar, where the procession culminated at 11.30am, much earlier than the previous years.
