[GRAPHIC] Really what is wrong with our planet?! You really think that Islamic Prophet Muhammad would be okay with the treatment of woman and kids?
Unbelievable - absolutely unbelievable.
Just how deluded do you need to be to engage in this sort of lunacy?
The Day of Ashura (Arabic: عاشوراء ʻĀshūrā’, Ashura, Ashoura, and other spellings; Turkish: Aşure Günü) is on the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram. It is commemorated by Shia Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH (October 2, 680 CE).

In short - it's a "holy" day that's all about how sacrifice, bloodshed, pain and of course about how great dying for one's god really is. Because, because..... well just because.
Oh, and because that's just the way Allah rolls......
This video has nothing to do with Muhammad it's all about Husayn...
These shia acts came after Muhammad's grand son died named Husayn....
The aim of this act is punish themselves, they do this every year, it is called Self-flagellation
They punish themselves because they did'nt save Husayn who died in that day
