Some scholars oppose it; some permit it.

In the grand scheme, it really doesn't matter. People who point fingers at tatbir today will simply find something else to point fingers at tomorrow.

It is really no one's business outside of shiaism how we commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as). Rest assured we do not scratch and knife anyone but ourselves.

Instead of worrying about tatbir, please solve the suicide bombing and terrorism dilemma first.

For Me, Both Tatbir and Suicide bombing are threat to this Muslim Nation.

I can understand your problem!

Definately if anyone start doing tatbir while putting on the suicide vest, he will going to blow himself. And all those who practise tatbir wear the suicide vest in any form.

Their suicide vest is such a karamati thing that it never explode whether people use the ignition system to explode it or whether they use knives & swords for producing the spark to explode the vest. Perhaps it is the karamat of the name of Imam Hussain (asws).

Nawasibs successfully explode their suicide vest, if youhave listened to whom they call before exploding their vest, please let me know that

@Shah Khan

Tatbir in my view, is one of the worst things to ever inflict and infect Islam, particularly Shia Islam. It has nothing to do with Shia Islam and was an innovation copied by a small minority of zealots from Christianity or another religion, and then brought in by ignorant people and has grown to have a minority following. While some scholars are neutral on it and do not comment on it (for or against) like Sayed Sistani (though his representative has forbidden it to be done on children), the scholars who have spoken out against it are: Sayed Khomeini, Khamanei, Makraem Shirazi, Fadllulah, Mutahari, Esfahani, Muhammed Najafi, Kamal Hayderi, Muhsini,  and a number of other very well known scholars, figures, and personalities. 

Here's why i disagree with it:

1. It goes against basic Islamic principles. In Islam, our body is an Amanah, and we should act in a way which honours the precious gift of a healthy body. Furthermore, Islam teaches the course of tolerance, of moderation, of cleanliness, of civility, and taking swords and knives and gashing at yourself promotes barbarism, intolerance, uncleanliness, and is just morose. 

2. It can be potentially dangerous to health. Blood flies around, flails are often mixed, and sanitary efforts are terrible. This can cause the spread of blood-borne diseases which can be passed on to children, which can be passed on to spouses, many of which can lay dormant in the body and cause secondary diseases and contribute to ill health and even death. 

3. It absolutely annihilates the message of Imam al-Hussian [as] and the Ahlulbayt (asws). It overshadows it, takes over it, and gore and carnage fill the news papers, given that the human being is naturally repulsed by blood, cuts, violence and such acts. It is the number one thing used to attack Shias, and often people don't give a damn when you mention Imam al-Hussain (as) and Kerbala and the message of peace, of humanity, because all they see is gore and barbarism.

4. It promotes an extremely unhealthy way to deal with grief. Many people, teenagers in particular, unfortunately resort to methods of self-harm to deal with problems. Having people whole-scale publicly mutilate themselves sends the wrong message on how to deal with grief and is potentially a dangerous precedent to set.

I could go on, but these four reasons are strong enough. Wallahi, few things make my heart sink as much as seeing a minority of Shias engage in this barbaric practise, however pure their intentions may be.

Tatbir is an even bigger threat. Suicide bombers are often fringe , radical zealots. Tatbir is done in large enough a minority to have a strong association to our Madhab. 

I'm a Shia and i can proudly say i strongly oppose it. My convert mother opposes it, my father opposes it, and I've converted most of my family in their opposition to it.

I can't say Tatbir is haram. I also think people shouldn't do it because others in their community do it (the wrong reasons) and should not do it when others  are going to film it and post it on the internet (bad for the image of Shia) and shouldn't film others and post it on the internet.
But these acts are the choice of people to express themselfs/their grief

What I do not understand is when people do tatbir but they do not learn, don't do important things for Islam. Tatbir on ashura, ignornat and bad lives rest of the year.

Just advice, a lot of people who are for it or tend to be neutral may fall into the following groups:

1. They have family members who do it, and even organise it. It is strong family tradition, and attacking it is like attacking their own family and their own tradition. You will be met with fierce resistance.

2. They associate this recent innovation to mourning for imam al-Hussain (as). However the two aren't even linked. An attack on Tatbir is not an attack on Ziyarah, poetry, lectures, crying, or even chest beating! 

3. They are married to someone who supports it, or have extended family who support it. It's hard to go against your wife, or husband. 

4. They don't realise the consequences of this act, and view it as permissible according to some scholars and refuse to look at the damage it does beyond an arbitrary harram or halal ruling. A woman performing Mutah with a dozens of men is technically Halal, so long as she does acts other than consummating it. Does that make it fair for society? Common sense has to be utilised as well.

5. The 'Slippery Slope' fallacy. These people assert that if you take out Tabir, next you'll take out poetry and mourning, then you'll take out other fundamental Shia practises until people become Sunnis. This is typical and classic fallacious reasoning you find used.

"A slippery slope argument (SSA), in logic, critical thinking, political rhetoric, and caselaw, is a consequentialist logical device in which a party asserts that a relatively small first step leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant (usually negative) effect."

:) Trying to not laugh at it! Sheikh Najafi is among the well known scholars who promote these sort of threats. 

Wisdom & intellect everywhere!

I'm talking about the one in Pakistan, not Iraq. There are two Najafis.
