The Department of Hussainian Liturgy — formed by the Imam Hussain and the Ebbas Shrines — stated Saturday the number of the volunteer service groups recently arrived in Kerbela to commemorate the Arba’een Pilgrimage to Imam Hussain.
Head of the department Reyadh Ne’meh Selman said to Imam Hussain Shrine’s website, “The number of the volunteer service groups registered at the Department of Hussainian Liturgy has reached 10700 — including groups coming from 21 Arab and foreign countries; those groups vary from volunteer service to Arba’een mourning processions.”
Selman added that a plan was set — in cooperation with the Headquarters of Kerbela Police Department — to legally register the volunteer service groups.
“The department — in cooperation with the concerned agencies — prepared certain ways and locations for the volunteer service groups in downtown Kerbela to facilitate the mourning processions’ traffic, so they don’t impede pilgrims’ traffic, as well as setting up a daily schedule for the mourning processions to enter the Imam Hussain and the Ebbas Shrines,” mentioned Selman.
