Iran expresses concern over attack on Ashura mourners in IIOJK

Tehran, Sept 01 : Saeed Khatibzadeh, the spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, voiced concerns over Indian security forces’ attack on a Muharram procession in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

“While Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has paid tribute to Aba Abdullah [Imam Hussein (AS)] and mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussein have been held quietly across India, reports of Ashura mourners being injured in IIOJK are very worrying,” Khatibzadeh told the Iranian media.

The spokesman also called on the Indian government to investigate the Ashura attack and to provide medical assistance to the injured immediately.
