Shiite Muslims perform ritual acts of self flagelation with a cluster of knives and chains during a religious procession in Ahmedabad on November 22, 2012. Rituals are held on the seventh day of Moharram, which commemorates the seventh century slaying of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson in southern Iraq. During the 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. Muslims show their grief and sorrow by inflicting wounds on their own bodies with sharp metal tied to chain with which they scourge themselves, in order to depict the sufferings of the martyrs AFP PHOTO / Sam PANTHAKY (Photo credit should read SAM PANTHAKY/AFP/Getty Images)
