    Thousands of Shia devotees in black dresses participated in the Bibi ka Alam procession in Hyderabad. The 9-km long procession started from Dabeerpura and ended at Chaderghat under tight security. The procession, also known as Youm-e-Ashura, marks the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Hussain, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad.

    The Bibi ka Alam, dedicated to Hazrat Hussain, was carried on a beautifully decorated elephant called Madhuri, specially brought from Karnataka. The procession was accompanied by massive crowds, with youth following on camels. Men beat their chests in grief along the route. This procession has been an important event for Shia-Muslims in Hyderabad for over 400 years. Many mourners representing different Anjumans participated in the tatbir ritual along the entire stretch.
