NEW DELHI, INDIA - DECEMBER 17: Shiite Muslims take part in a self-flagelation ritual during a religious procession of the Ashura mourning period on December 17, 2010 in New Delhi, India. The religious festival of Ashura involves a ten day mourning period starting on the first day of Muharram on the Islamic calendar, commemorating the slaying of Prophet Muhammad's grandson Imam Hussein in the seventh-century during the battle of Karbala. Men take part in a ritual beating of themselves as they mourn the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images) less
