Thousands of People Rally In Downtown Toronto to Mark Great March of Arbaeen (+Video)

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The 4-kilometer rally took place between 1 Strachan Ave. and ended on 361 University Ave, in which people expressed their love for Imam Hussain (AS), the third Shiite Imam and marked the anniversary of 40th day after his martyrdom in the Battle of Karbala.

The rally meant to propagate awareness of the Arbaeen Walk in Iraq, which draws millions of people from all parts of the globe, and the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (AS) to promote justice, peace and harmony.

Imam Hussain (AS) is the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who stood up against the oppressive regime of the tyrant Yazid.  

Both Muslims and non-Muslims have described Imam as an inspirational leader whom everyone should look up to.
