Photos from Shiite ‘Ashura’ going on in Lafia today

The shiite muslims of the north are not backing down at all!

Following the recent spate of mass killings of shiites in the Northern part of Nigeria, the group still went ahead with their ashura mourning today in Lafia, Nassarawa state.

Ashura, to shiite muslims, is a major religious commemoration of the martyrdom at Karbala of Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. It falls on the 10th of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic lunar calendar.
