Khichdo on the day of Ashura?

The sad first month of the Islamic calendar during which the family of the Holy Prophet were faced with a great ordeal and tragedy.

Is consuming khichdo on Ashura justified?

(salam)

I was just going through this topic and thought will bump it.

If possible, let us move forward with the following:

1. Food/water distribution to the poor in the name of Aba Abdillah (as) as Br. Muntazir Manji had suggested

2. Suggesting that at least ice cream be scrapped on the day of Ashura and that Khichdo be replaced with something more befitting the azadaar of Hussain (as).

The afternoon lunches were a variety of daal, pilau and so on. Ideally 40 days from Ashura we should be observing grief, but observing grief at least on the day of Ashura is the minimum we can do.
