Hyderabad: For the last 54 years, a Hindu family is observing Muharram, passing from one generation to the other as a tradition, by inviting devotees across all religions and faiths at the Syed Sayajalal Chand-saab Baba Ashoorkhana at Trimulgherry.

It all started when one of their children at the age of seven in the year 1962 has fallen sick and the family firmly believes that he got cured after the child was made to walk on fire during Muharram.

 

M. Rajesh, 40 years, one of the family members, whose parents were both Hindu, traced back the birth of the tradition to a story. “My mother narrated this to me in my childhood. When my brother, M. Paramanand Lal, who was then seven, got very sick and would not eat or drink anything. One of our acquaintances told us about the Muhar-ram procession, and asked us to make our brother walk on the fire. My mother took him there and helped him walk. She prayed that she would observe Muharram each year if he gets cured.”
