SOT, Syed Abid Hussein, Mourner (Urdu): "You can see across the world there is no value for humanity, in countries like Shaam [modern-day Syria and Lebanon], Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, and Kashmir people are getting oppressed, the reason is there is no value for mankind and for humanity. The message of Karbala is to save humanity and Islam religion is showing us the right path." *LOOSE TRANSLATION*

Thosands of muslims commemorated the annual observance of Arbaeen in the Bemina area, in the outskirts of the capital of Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar, on Sunday.
