Youm-e-Ali processions taken out in Lahore despite ban from NCOC

LAHORE – The central procession was taken out from Mubarak Haveli in Punjab capital to mark the Martyrdom Day of Hazrat Ali RA, amid a ban on mass gatherings due to the recent spike in Covid-19 infections.

The provincial government and the National Command and Operation Centre had banned mourning processions across the province this year and allowed Majalis under the strict implementation of Covid SOPs.

Various organizations including Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen have rejected the government ban on the procession of Hazrat Ali martyrdom day.

Expected negotiations between the Shia scholars and the district administration could not take place on Sunday. The organizers had conveyed that they would take out the mourning processions at all costs and would not accept any kind of ban on the processions.
