Chander Parkash Khatri, a Pakistani Hindu, has penned a beautiful note detailing the feelings of the Hindu community during the Muslim Muharram. Here is his note, unedited, where he speaks about it:
“Though I don’t know much about Hussaini Brahmins/Hindus, but I always notice a few things amongst many Hindus of Sindh during the 1st ten days of Muharram.
– Many Hindus I personally know wear black attire until 10th Muharram in the respect of Imam Hussain.
– Across the lower Sindh, many Muharram processions are completely supervised by local Hindus.
– Almost all the Hindus in Sindh distribute Food and cold water during 1st ten days of this month.
– Not only this, Sindh also has a few renowned Hindu Zakirs who are called for aMjlises across the entire Pakistan.
There’s literally an undescribable bonding between Hindus of Sindh and Imam Hussain, which makes many of them commemorate these days exactly the way Shias do.
This Muharram, we are all Hussaini!”
