LAHORE (92 News) – Youm-e-Ali, martyrdom day of Hazrat Ali (RA) is being observed in the country on Monday.
Extensive traffic and security plans have been prepared for major Youm-e-Ali processions which will be taken out in Karachi and Lahore.
In Karachi, the main procession will be taken out from Nishtar Park. The route of the procession will be a little different compared to past years ─ it mostly bypasses MA Jinnah Road.
Instead, mourners will go from New MA Jinnah Road to Peoples Chowrangi, and come out on Preedy Street on the way to Imambargah Hussainian Iranian in Kharadar.
Also the mourners, instead of offering Namaz-i-Zuhrain at Ali Raza Imambargah as per the usual practice, will offer the prayer near Quaid-i-Azam’s mausoleum.
