reference of Ayat Makarem Shirazi
12 To Chain-Beat by Chains that have Razor [Mourning] 
q> What is the ruling of chest-beat with razor or chain-beat with a chain that has razor and to cause injury and bleeding?
a>  As it has been mentioned before, the issue of mourning of Imam Hussein (a.s.) anytime and anywhere is one of the best worships and strengthens the soul of faith and Islamic courage and devotion among Muslims, but it should be performed in the way that it doesn’t give excuse to enemies of Islam and doesn’t cause abuse of that and this great and magnificent ceremony not to be weakened; therefore it should be abstained from acts that vilify the religion.

Q1430: What is the view on beating the drum and cymbal, blowing the trumpet, and lashing oneself with chains with blades during the processions of the commemoration of the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (a.s.)?

A: If the use of such chains leads, in the eye of the public, to defaming our school of thought or inflicting a noticeable harmful effect on the body, it is not permissible. There is no harm in using the drum, cymbal, and trumpet in the traditional way.

Q1439: Is there any basis in religion for piercing one's body with weights dangling therefrom, all in the name of commemorating the martyrdom of the Imam Husayn (a.s.)?

A: These acts, which are, inevitably, bound to portray our school of thought in a negative shade, are impermissible.

Q1449: In commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (a.s.) on the tenth of Muharram, some people hit themselves with a machete, or walk bare-footed on fire. Such actions defame Shi'ism and put it in a bad light, if not undermine it. They cause bodily and spiritual harms on these doing it as well. What is your opinion in this matter?

A: Any practice that causes bodily harm, or leads to defaming the faith, is Haram. Accordingly, the believers have to steer clear of it. There is no doubt that many of these practices besmirch the image of Ahlul Bayt's (a.s.) School of Thought which is the worst damage and loss.

Q1450: Is hitting oneself with swords Halal if it is done in secret? Or is your fatwa in this regard universal?

A: In addition to the fact that it is not held in the common view as manifestations of mourning and grief and it has no precedent at the lifetime of the Imams (a.s.) and even after that and we have not received any tradition quoted from the Infallibles (a.s.) about any support for this act, be it privately or publicly, this practice would, at the present time, give others a bad image of our school of thought. Therefore, there is no way that it can be considered permissible.
actually when the wal e faqih orders something then it is necessery for all muslims to follow as u have seen in the fatwa of agha sistani therefore all the fatwas of great marajas which are respectable at their own place but they get void after the order of wali e faqih.
Therefore mentioning respectable fatwas of other marajae regarding legalness of qamazani becomes useless.
Secondly i have also refernces from the great ayatullah behjat as well that he accepts ayat Kahmeni as his leader and fully supports islamic revolution i have read his bks as well and myself heard from his close students regarding this and if u require can scan his statments which r in farsi.
Therefore the must and most important responsibility of our media nowadays is to fully support the islamic revolution and our leader so that we can combat american and israel's propandas and their system.  
Therefore my kind advice to u is that u should also use ur website for this great cause (which r u doin already but should do some more aswell) so that we can prepare true soldiers of imam e zamana and thus prepare an ideal society which is fully prepared for his reappearence. insh...
bc his reappearence is on our hands the better we prepare closer his reapperance will be. the better we combat the today's yazeed the happier will be the imam hussein(a.s) of our time (imam zaman a.s).
