Muslim festival ritual leaves kids covered in blood
September 11, 2019

Shiite Muslims take part each year in a ceremony that marks the Muslim festival of Ashura, which mourns the death of the Prophet Mohammed’s grandson, Husayn ibn Ali.

The day is remarkable in the public displays of mourning that often results in bloody worshipers — to include children.

Ashura falls on the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar and the day is a national holiday in Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Pakistan, according to The Sun.

It’s a day that often involves public expressions of mourning and Muslims will mark the occasion with the practice of Tatbir, where blood is drawn in remembrance of the innocent blood of Husayn, the British paper reported.

Blood drawn by a sword or scourge … or a really big knife. And children aren’t always exempt from the ritual.

More on the holiday from The Sun:

They mark Husayn’s death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

Yazid is considered a tyrant by some Muslims, and Husayn’s death is considered by the Shia community to be a symbol of humanity’s struggle against injustice, tyranny, and oppression.


The belief is that Tatbir cleanses worshipers of their sins, with Shiite Muslims saying “a single tear shed for Husayn washes away a hundred sins.”

“The ritual, which is sometimes carried out on children, is controversial within the Muslim world,” The Sun noted. “With some research suggesting it can cause lasting psychological damage.”

Some clerics consider it to be self harm, which is forbidden in Islam.

One alternative is to reportedly have worshipers donate blood with organizations like the Red Cross.

People think that them doing Tatbir and Zanjeer is going to make Imam Hussain happy. Like he wants you to do self harm. The blood that your body is losing can save a life, why don’t you donate blood in the name of Imam Hussain instead of harming yourself.

One social media user took great exception to children being included.

“If consenting adults want to hack themselves up for Ashura, fair enough. I support bodily autonomy,” the tweet said. “But it’s utterly monstrous to slice children open as part of the ‘festivities.'”

Barbaric Neanderthals. Democrats like to call them the religion of peace. No doubt they will think this is just dandy.

Those fanatics who believe children should "mourn" likewise for some dead ass hole from long ago--have the adults slice their carotids all the way through. If they are still alive after 5 minutes, they may ask for one of those plastic Keys to Paradise, the ones made in Taiwan.

It IS the religion of peace. If you submit to it you will supposedly have peace.

No doubt, the Middle East is proof of the fallacy.

No, more fake news from the right....

GWB and the Donald both have called Muslims peaceful, educate yourself next time.....



"The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam," Mr Bush said shortly after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. "That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace."

"I love the Muslims," Mr Trump said in September 2015. "I think they're great people."

I don't give a shlt what W OR Trump said. They may educate you. but they don't educate me.

Google "Stoning" and watch the muslim men laugh and laugh, while filming with their smart phone, as different women are stoned to death with cinder blocks. This is part of the religion of peace.

Google it if you are brave enough, there are tons of videos that these sick fu*kers post.

Tell me, what other religion has been constantly at war with itself since the beginning of time? Sunni's and Shia are proof that Islam is the religion of hate, for everyone unlike themselves.

I posted the OP.

The whack jobs in the OP are extremists IMO
The Extremists are NOT peaceful.
Anyone, regardless of religion, that cuts up little kids needs to be incarcerated.
