An Indian police officer walks past an injured youth after police chased away Kashmiri Shi'ite mourners who tried to defy a curfew and take out a Muharram procession, in Srinagar December 15, 2010. Authorities on Wednesday imposed a curfew in parts of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir to thwart planned Muharram processions, local media reported. Muslims all over the world mourn the slaying of Imam Hussein, grandson of Prophet Mohammad, during the first ten days of the Islamic month of Muharram. Imam Hussein was killed by his political rivals along with 72 companions in the 7th century battle of Kerbala. The injured boy said that he was beaten by Indian police after he took refuge inside a shop.
