PESHAWAR - The 9th Muharram mourning processions were peacefully concluded in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa including Peshawar on Wednesday.

In Peshawar, the main processions of 9th Muharram were taken out from Hussainia Hall Imambargah Peshawar Cantonment and Imambargah Bibi Zikri inside the city. Both processions passed through prescribed routes and culminated at the same imambargah at afternoon. 

The speakers paid rich tributes to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and others martyrs of Karbala for their supreme sacrifices for supremacy of Islam. Police have made tight security arrangements.

The 9th Muharram processions at D.I. Khan, Hangu, Kohat, Mansehra and other districts were also concluded peacefully. The ulema threw light on the philosophy of Karbala and the matchless sacrifices offered by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions in the scorching heat of Karbala for supremacy of Islam.
