Tehran | WTNS | September 1:Foreign Ministry of Islamic Republic of Iran expresses concern and anger over the indiscriminate use of force by police and forces against mourners in Kashmir.

Saeed Khatibzadeh, the spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, voiced concerns on Monday over Indian security forces’ attack on a Muharram procession in Kashmir.

“While Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has paid tribute to Aba Abdullah [Imam Hussein (AS)] and mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussein have been held quietly across India, reports of Ashura mourners being injured in Kashmir are very worrying,” Khatibzadeh told the ILNA on Monday.

The spokesman also called on the Indian government to investigate the Ashura attack and to provide medical assistance to the injured immediately.
