PAKISTAN-RELIGION-ISLAM-MUHARRAM

Pakistani Shiite Muslims walk on burning coal during a procession in Lahore late November 22, 2012, in the Muslim holy month of Muharram - as devotees remember the slaying of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson in southern Iraq in the seventh century. 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 chains to depict the sufferings of the martyrs.
