"ASHURA" Religious Festival
The Shia Muslim community across the world hold the mourning event of Ashura festival every year in the first month of Islamic calendar to mark the anniversary of the Battle of Karbala, when Imam Hussein ibn Ali, a grandson of Muhammad, was killed around AD 680.
Similar to that the mourning "Yin Htu Pwe and Dar Yite Pwe" event is held in Myanmar.
The "Yin Htu Pwe and Dar Yite Pwe" means their sorrow is demonstrated by beating themselves with sharp swords or chains.
Shia Muslims are also known as Mogol and they are one of the minorities in Myanmar.
