For the followers of the Ahlul Bayt (as), the first two months of the Islamic year are a time for grief and mourning. It was on the 10th of Muharram, 61 A.H/680 C.E that Imam Husayn (as) the grandson of the Holy Prophet (saw) was martyred in Karbala, “Ashura”, meaning the tenth day. The Holy Imam went through great difficulties even after Ashura, and their grief and pain is remembered by their followers for two months. During these two months Shia”s try to avoid all forms of merry making. They are as one bereaved family, giving vent to their grief and sorrow through mourning rituals such as Majalis and Matam. This does not mean however that they make their lives miserable. What they try to do is not indulge in activities that make them oblivious of the great sacrifice of Imam Husayn (as) and his family for Islam.

The demonstration was held in front of the Israeli embassy in London, where the protesters waved placards, banners and flags bearing slogans such as ‘End the Siege in Gaza’ and ‘Free Palestine’.

Meanwhile British Riot police clashed with demonstrators as many of them attempted to climb the gate towards the Israeli Embassy, and some reportedly left the scene with bloody faces.

Similar protests were held Sunday in many other places in the world.

Outstanding British anti-war politicians, such as former Labor MP Tony Benn or MP George Galloway were seen Sunday in the demonstration.

“We should treat Israel as we treated South Africa during apartheid. They should be shunned,” Galloway said after the protest.

The protest organizers said similar events would continue on Monday.
