Muslim traditions and festivals are one of the most gruesome in history.

Just like this tradition from a Muslim tribe in its annual Ashura festival to mourn the death of their ‘prophet’ Muhammad’s grandson, Hussein Ali.

The footage from last year’s Ashura festival below shows innocent babies, children, and adults covered in blood as Muslims used knives to slice open their heads during Ashura.

“Shiite Muslim mourners flagellate themselves during a procession on the tenth day of Muharram which marks the day of Ashura in Ajmer, India, on 09 August 2022.” AFP reported.

Here’s what ‘The Sun’ reported about this Muslim festival:

DEVOUT Shiite Muslims have covered themselves in blood from self-inflicted wounds as they mark Ashura, one of the holiest days in their calendar.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people converge on Karbala, some 50 miles south of Baghdad, Iraq, to observe the solemn holy day.

Shiites carried out one of the most spectacular rituals of the holy day, involving thousands of people sprinting from an area outside the centre of Karbala toward the gold-domed shrine of Hussein to enact their rush to answer their beloved saint’s cries for help in battle.

Shiites see Hussein and his descendants as the rightful heirs to the prophet.

Mass rallies continued for a second day in Islamabad and major cities across Pakistan, where participants rhythmically beat their bodies with knife-edged chains.

Men staggered through the streets, blood dripping down their backs.

In the Shiite-dominated Baghdad suburb of Sadr City, processions of men and boys expressed extreme fervour in the Ashura rituals of self-flagellation.

If in any case the video is deleted by Twitter, which is expected because of its gruesome content, you can watch additional footage from last year’s Ashura festival here: TheSun/Youtube

    After 4000 years of inbreeding, what do you expect. There is no place for these barbaric Sharia Muslims in the western world. Enjoy your burning sands. jwstx MAGA
