Husseini Brahmins are a group of Hindu Brahmins who are trying to bridge the gap between Hinduism and Islam. They have a strong affinity for the story and maryrdom of Hussein ibn 'Ali and lament Hussein's martyrdom with Indian Muslims each Muharram.

As a result of their connection to Islam, they are ostracized and excluded by other Hindu Brahmin groups.
