Kumar Vishwas, member of the National Executive of the Aam Admi Party (AAP) makes fun of Muharram processions. The video was recorded in October 2013.
Kumar Vishwas: "Main Lucknow mein tha. Moharram ka Julus nikal raha tha. Hai Hussain..Hai Hussain.. dekha hai aapne? Chaati Maatha peet te hai..hote toh (Imam Hussein) pata nahi kya kar lete? Abhi Saddam Hussein latka toh kisi ne kya kar liya (laughs).. Hai Hussain ... Hai Hussain.. toh mein side me khada ho gaya..Vahan ek paryatak bhi aaya hua tha.. koi angrez..Usne mujhe pucha padha likha samajhkar.. "What happened? Kya ho gaya?...Toh maine kaha ki inke forefathers mar gaye..Poorvaj..Toh usne (angrez) top (hat) utar liya.. Bola Very Sad, Very Sad.. Kab? Maine kaha 1400 saal pehle.. Bola badi late khabar mili..(Laughter)" Translation: "I was in Lucknow. A Moharram Julus was passing...chanting Hai Hussain.. Have you seen it? They beat their chests and heads (sarcasm).. Wonder what they would do if he (Imam Hussein) was there! Now, Saddam Hussein was hanged.. What could they do? (laughs).. Hai Hussain.. So I stood at one side.. there was a tourist.. some Englishman.. He asked me thinking I was an educated person... "What happened (to them)? " I replied that their forefathers have died...So the Englishman removed his hat and said very sad.. very sad.. When? I said about 1400 years ago... so he said they (the mourners) got the news very late indeed.. (Laughter)"
