Caption: Muharram is one of the important religious ceremonies of Shiite Muslims. They take out a long procession on that occasion to mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hussain at Karbala. In the evening just before the day of procession one can find young men running past the neighbourhood carrying huge flags mounted at the head of a long bamboo pole. They dress themselve up in their best. In the procession the next day these flags would be carried before each group of the mourners.
