Parallel with the anniversary of the 40th day of Imam Hussein's martyrdom, Sociology of Ashoura Deviations by Abdolmajid Ziaei will be assessed, announced head of Hezareh Phoenix publication center.
In Islam, most of the religious distortions are attributed to the Ashoura event due to its attraction to all social strata, said Reza Hajiabadi, in an interview with IBNA.
He said the book considers deviations of Ashoura narrations from its origin and fathoms their roots out sociologically.
The book also introduces weak as well as credited works on the event of Ashura where Imam Hussein and his companions were slain by Yazid ibn-Moaviyeh corps.
