He noted that the Peer Panja (cutouts of hands) procession, which marks sacrifice, are being taken up by Muslims as well as Hindus across the state.

Chief Minister KCR said in a message that irrespective of religions, Muharram gives the message of unity, brotherhood and 'Ganga-Jamuna Tezjeeb' between Hindu and Muslims communities.

Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan, in her message, noted that Muharram symbolises the spirit of sacrifice which is placed above all the virtues of mankind.

Muharram commemorates the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain, the grandson of the Holy Prophet, who sacrificed his life at the altar of true belief, she said.
