A child swings blades as other Kashmiri Shiite Muslims perform a ritual of self-flagellation with knives during a religious procession held on the fourth day of Ashura, which remembers the slaying of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson in southern Iraq in the seventh century, in Srinagar on November 20,2012. During the Shiite Muslim holy month of Muharram, large processions are formed and the devotees parade the streets holding banners and carrying models of the mausoleum of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his people, who fell at Karbala. Shias show their grief and sorrow by inflicting wounds on their own bodies with sharp metal tied to chain to depict the sufferings of the martyrs.
