Sure, me not liking a practise doesn't make it Harram, but Khomeini, Khamanei, Makarem Shirazi, Esfahani, Fadllulah, Muhammed Najafi, Mutahari, Kamal al-Hayderi and many others who have explicitly deemed it Harram and condemned it in the harshest of terms, in addition to any rational argument being quite clear that this act goes against not only Islamic principles, but basic humane ethics, promotes self-harm, gore, a dangerous way to deal with grief, and annihilates our image.
As Imam al-Hussain said: "...Be free in your present life". Put cultural constraints, family biases aside, and think freely.
A generic message to all.
