Thousands of mourners participated in the procession that was led by senior Kashmiri separatist leader and the president of the Anjuman-e Shari’-ye Shi’ayan, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Hasan Musawi-Safawi.

After the culmination of noon prayers at Zaynab Park Shalimar, Hujjat al-Islam Musawi-Safawi addressed tens and thousands of mourners. He talked in length about martyrdom of Imam al-Sajjad.
