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