Chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain A.S and his 72 companions is being observed today with due reverence like other parts of the country, January 15, 2012, Photo by Yasir Kazmi, Karachi, Pakistan.

The main procession was taken out from Nishter Park in which a large number of mourners participated.
On the occasion, majalis were held and Zuljinah, Alam and Tazia processions were also taken out. Speakers, in their speeches, said that Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) offered a unique sacrifice at Karbala for the supremacy of Islam, Shariah and humanity as a result of which oppressed nations launched independence movements today.
