Chehlum of Imam Hussain (RA) today

LAHORE: The Chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) will be observed today (Tuesday) with religious spirit and fervour across the provincial capital metropolis. Arrangements have been finalized to bring out mourning processions in various parts of the Punjab capital. The main mourning of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) will emerge from Mochi Chowk and will culminate at Karbala Gameshah in the evening. In this regard, the city and provincial administrations have prepared a contingency plan to maintain law and order and provide foolproof security to cover the processions amid enhanced threat of terrorism and the recent spate of sectarian killings in the province. The intelligence departments of the Punjab government and the federal spy agencies would coordinate to keep an eye on subversive elements, sources in the law enforcement agencies informed. All streets and roads leading to processions routes have been closed with barbed-wire fence. Suspension of mobile telephone service on Chehlum was considered but no decision has been taken yet in this regard. On the other hand, the 970th three-day annual urs of Hazrat Syed Abul Hassan Ali Bin Usman Hajveri, famously known as Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh (RA) will also conclude today. Thousands of his lovers and devotees attended the urs celebrations. Strict security measures were adopted amid the celebrations to avoid any untoward.
