Muharram Processions Underway Countrywide Amid Strict Security
Muharram 9 processions are underway across the country to remember Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), his family, and his adherents who were martyred at Karbala.

In many cities and towns across the country, such as Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Quetta, etc., the processions are traveling along their customary, predetermined itineraries.

The administrations in these cities and towns have implemented stringent security measures to prevent any untoward incidents.

In several places, shipping containers and barbed wire have been used to block off all roads leading to the procession routes and locations.

Additionally, cellular phone service has been cut off along the procession route.

Additionally, as a precaution, pillion riding has been outlawed in the majority of big cities and towns.

In order to guarantee that processions take place peacefully, hundreds of security officers have been stationed in several places. Numerous closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras have been installed along the roads specifically for this reason.

As the country comes together to pay tribute to the revered Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his followers, authorities are striving to ensure that the day remains peaceful and that the mourners can express their grief and devotion without any disturbances.

The central procession of the 9th Muharram Al-Haram in Karachi will start from Nishtarpark and follow traditional routes, culminating at Imambargah Hussainiya Iraniyan Kharadar.

The police and Rangers have been deployed to perform security duties. More than 10,000 security personnel have been deployed during the Muharram processions.

Roads leading to the main processional routes in Karachi have been sealed.

Additionally, more than 3,000 traffic officers and officials will be on duty to guide the traffic.

Mobile services will see a partial shutdown until 10:30 p.m.
