Like every year Baltistan marked Ashura (Martyrdom of Imam Hussain a.s.) in the month of Asad par their tradition with religious processions and majalis held throughout the region.

Globally, every year on the tenth day of the holy month of Muharram, the first on the Islamic lunar calendar, Shia Muslims show a distinctive face of Islam, one that sees spirituality in passion and rituals rather than in law and the familiar practices that punctuate Muslim lives, the same is practiced in Baltistan but in the month of Asad which usually fall in July.

The holy day of Ashura marks the martyrdom of Hussain ibn Ali (AS), the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (SAWWS), in a historic seventh century battle. Shias around the world — who make up between 15 percent of Muslims – observe the month, lest it be Muharram, Asad or Jaite, in a myriad of ways.

This year Ashura was observed with religious processions, Majalis and Lement- gatherings in Gumbah Skardu.
