Allahabad HC dismissed the petition seeking for Tazia

The Division Bench of Justices SK Gupta and Shamim Ahmed of the Allahabad High Court has dismissed the petitions seeking permission to take out Tazia during Muharram.

The court stated that “It is with a heavy heart that we hold that in these testing times, it is not possible to lift the prohibition by providing any guidelines for regulating the mourning rituals/practice connected with the 10th day of Moharram”.

The Petitioners had opposed the UP Government order dated August 10, that prohibition on Tazia Procession in Muharram in the State of Uttar Pradesh. The court observed that it may not be possible to maintain social distancing norms during the pandemic.
