The bloody floor of a mosque in New Delhi, India, as Shiite Muslims flagellate themselves today during a Muharram procession marking Ashura

Blood is seen on the floor of a mosque as Indian Shiite Muslims flagellate themselves during a holy procession.

Muslims all over the world pay their respects with the flowing of their blood as they mourn the slaying and martyrdom of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad.

He was killed by his political rivals along with 72 companions in the seventh century battle of Kerbala where some of the bodies of the dead were then mutilated.

The Muslims were taking part in processions in Mumbai and Chennai. Ashura is celebrated on the tenth day of the Islamic month of Muharram.

The processions also involve walking on burning coals and carrying a ‘Tazia’ – replica of the coffin of Hussein.

Some participants gather for ceremonial chest beating as a display of their devotion in remembrance of his suffering and to preach that oppression will not last.

In some Shi’a regions of Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Lebanon, and Bahrain, the commemoration has become a national holiday.

Most ethnic and religious communities participate even in a predominantly Hindu majority.

    Bring back memories of when I was a young little Shi’ite and Dad would put “Bing” Laden on the stereo and he would croon …

    Believers wail, are ya listenin’
    On their backs blood is glistenin’
    A beautiful sight
    We’re frenzied tonight
    Walkin’ in a Shi’ite wonderland

    Gone away is my plain shirt
    Here to stay’s a blood stained shirt
    We sing a sad verse
    As the bleeding gets worse
    Walkin’ in a Sh’ite wonderland

    On your forehead we can make some blood flow
    And pretend that you’re Imam Hussein
    He’ll say “Are You Sunni”, we’ll say “Hell no”
    We’ve been beating ourselves for hours with this chain

    Later on, we’ll be poundin’
    On our chests as we’re houndin’
    The evil Yazid
    And his unholy deed
    Walkin’ in a Shi’ite wonderland

    “Evil Yazid and his unholy deed”

    Yazid is the caliph who ordered the beheading of Hussein

    Oh, those “goofy” muslims, always doing strange rituals because of their beliefs.

    (I’m going to print and have available a copy of this post for the next person who tells me that Christians are weirdos for believing in God. “Oh, really?”)

    If they were TRUE devotees, they would nuke themselves.

    The blinding flash of 100 MegaTons in Mecca and Medina would prove to Allah the seriousness of their faith!

    Anything less is proof of corruption by the Jooooooooos!

    There was a medieval sect who chose another method that was as equally harsh:

    “…He was killed by his political rivals along with 72 companions…..”

    72 “companions”? Sounds like ol’ Imam Hussein got a little too greedy – tried tapping them virgins before his time. His rivals didn’t like that.

    If we could just get them all to behead themselves for allah they might lose that terrorist stigma.

    Repackaged Ba’al worship. They also practice human sacrifice.

    Musloidism is a deeply wicked violent pagan religion that will destroy the world….unless we destroy it first.

    Absolutely nothing the muslims do is admirable. A muslim can never be looked up to. They violate the laws of God, the laws of man, and the laws of nature in everything they do.

    We should put them out of their misery at events such as pictured above, with a drone flyover.

    Here is an example of a drone that you Ford owners will appreciate:

    “He was killed by his political rivals along with 72 companions in the seventh century battle of Kerbala where some of the bodies of the dead were then mutilated.”

    Likely their corpses were sodomized—it’s a religious thing we infidels just wouldn’t understand.

    You want to bet there’s a lot of cherry koolaid on the floor from those not so dedicated muslims that just want to get out of there so they can get down to the Indian equivalent of a pub for a pack of pork rinds, a pint of bitter and and watch the cricket game on the telly.

    If we shipped them a bunch of muslim made Razor Blade Slides would they use them? What better way to display their devotion to the head Savage. Just leave your implements of torture at home and line up and slide down to allah and his pet monkey muhammad.
