Seventh Muharram Procession (Jaloos)

Click for larger viewQuetta (January 6, 2008): The Seventh Muharram procession marched off peacefully to its destination. The procession started out from Art School Road, passed through its traditional route of Archer Road-Liaqat Bazar-Prince Road-McCongy Road, and terminated at Hazara Imam Bargah Kalan. Mourners carried alam and Zuljanah while reciting Nauha. The Administration had made strict security arrangements. Police, Frontier Corps and Anti-Terrorist Force squads were deployed along the route of the procession. All the roads, streets and shops leading to, and along the route, had been sealed since yesterday.

It has been a trend to march a mourning procession on the 7th of Muharram along the main Quetta city roads for quite some time. This year, tough security measures were arranged by law enforcement agencies with the cooperation of volunteers frpm the “Jaloos Management” committee. Despite the freezing-cold weather–with -10 degrees centigrade–the number of jaloos participants was observed to be significantly large.

  3. Musakhan:
    your idea is great but for site we need organization, correspondents, technicians, writers and the most troubling Financial Support. Hazara News Pakistan has only two administrators one of whom is correspondent. Our limited resources are the biggest hurdle to buy a domain and run a site. hope you understand the difficulties.
