Dawn News (AFP) published a strory on Iraq Ashura which contained misleading content about 'Why Shi'ite observe Muharram Rituals'. The following lines are based on a particular Wahabi Ideology which is intended to mislead the readers and defame Shia Islam and mutilate its image.

"To mark the occasion, modern-day Shia devotees flood Hussein's mausoleum, demonstrating their ritual guilt and remorse for not defending him by beating their heads and chests and, in some cases, making incisions on their scalps with swords in ritual acts of self-flagellation."

Correction: "Why Shias Mourn"

The commemoration of Imam Hussain a.s Maryrdom is observed to propagate and keep alive the message of Imam Hussain's a.s, of remaining steadfast against the the evil of the time and raise voice against injustice and oppression.

Matam is a way of demonstrating the reverence for Imam a.s and his household. Thus honoring their memories and informing people about them in accordance with the advice of the Messenger (S), and provide the Muslims with what they need for Guidance.

All of you are requested to record your protest against this irresponsible act of a reputed news agency of Pakistan.
