The Holy Shrine of Imam al-Hadi and Imam al-'Askari (peace be upon both of them) witnessed the influx of many mourning processions commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of Imam al-'Askari (peace be upon him), and among these processions is the Karbala People’s Procession which conducts its mourning activities, in cooperation with the Holy Shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) represented by the Department of Hussayni rituals and processions.
