It is stated in the fatwa that According to the existent legislation, mourning ceremonies must be held in mosques, places of worship, and their areas and should not hinder public order: “Religious ceremonies and rituals should be led by only religious leaders officially appointed by the CMO. It is prohibited to hold mass rallies in the places outside worship places, bring tools that can harm themselves and other people, flags of other countries. It is contrary to the Islamic laws to harm yourselves by hitting with chains and bare up to the thigh and bleed the head. It is disrespect to the memory of Imam and martyrs of Kerbala”.
