The police has determined the route concerning Muharram procession. On July 29, the day of Muharram, the entry of enormous automobiles within the Ranchi city shall be closed from 6 am to 12 midnight.
Throughout this, all the massive automobiles will attain their vacation spot exterior the capital by way of the Ring Street. On Monday, SSP Vishal Kaushal made public an order associated to this.
The route from Doranda to Urdu Library, followed to take out and return the Muharram procession every year will not be allowed this year 2023 due to the ongoing construction of overbridge.
Senior officers together with SSP and DC inspected varied routes have appealed to Muslim community of Doranda not to take out Muharram procession on Doranda-Urdu Library route.
Muharram, according to Islam, Imam Hussain, is the first month of Hijri or the Islamic calendar. It is 13 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar. It is a time for reflection and penance.
On this occasion,Allah forbids waging a war. Muslims also make donations to the poor during Muharram and religious hymns called Noha are recited during this month.
Historically,the grandson of Prophet Muhammad and the son of the fourth Caliph Hazrat Ali, died in the Battle of Karbala (680 AD) on the 10th day of Muharram. Therefore, Ashura is observed on the 10th day of Muharram.
However, since the Muslims observe the day by taking out procession,many carrying traditional weapons, the event marks a major subject of law and order.
As per the plan, the state administration has decided to deploy Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Jharkhand Armed Police, Indian Reserve Battalion and Rapid Action Police units.
Also,Drones would be put into service to keep surveillance over sensitive areas like Doranda, Main Road, Bariyatu, Kanke, and Ratu.
The district police on Tuesday appealed to the residents not to spread rumours by posting fake photos, videos, and objectionable comments about any religion on social media.
Strict legal action would be taken against offenders, they warned. Laying the onus on the group admin to ensure that disruptive messages are not posted, the police further said people should report about such messages either to the nearest police station or the cyber cell.
