British oppressed this tazia for 50 yrs | Surat News


Bohrajiwala tazia had confronted oppression from the then British authorities in the erstwhile port town of Surat for over 50 years up to 1885. Ghulam Mustafa Hakimji stated,”For 50 years, his great grandfather completed the tazia by moving contrary to the orders of British authorities. Many times they had been beaten up by the cops for not following the orders. At length, the Britishers formally granted consent for carrying out the Subedar tazia in 1885. That is the way, the tazia procession on the 10th day of Muharram began from town ”
