Arba'een is a special cultural capacity for Iran, said the deputy head of the country’s Islamic Development Organization (IDO), calling for proper planning to use it optimally.

Annually, millions of Muslims from across the world gather in Iraq’s holy city of Karbala to commemorate Arba’een, the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the third Shia Imam.

Mohammad Mehdi Dadman made the remarks on Monday in a meeting in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan, Mehr News Agency reported.

He added, “At present, Sistan-Baluchestan Province is the eastern gate for Arba'een pilgrims.”

According to the latest statistics, more than 68,000 Pakistani pilgrims have entered Iran through Sistan-Baluchestan Province since October 2, Dadman said, noting that the figure is expected to reach 80,000 by the end of Arba'een ceremonies.

Dadman said the IDO has provided Pakistani pilgrims with quality services during Arba'een ceremonies.
