The Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, underlined Iraq’s need for men of state, not men of politics, who work according to an integrated and agreed on vision, stressing the need to trust the people who are worth the trust and possess competencies and fear God the Almighty. His Eminence called to urge people to participate in the elections, indicating the importance of transforming competition between persons to competition between electoral programs.
This came during His Eminence’s meeting with a large group of leaders and sheikhs of Wasit tribes in El Kut, on Saturday 21/9/2013.
His Eminence stated that the way to solve problems and face challenges is internal cohesion, adding that terrorism is not strong and that there is dispersion and weakness. He stressed that the Iraqi people need to know the nature of agreements made among the political blocs, assuring that part of the security crises is due to the lacking recognition of the leading role of tribes. His Eminence also reiterated the Marty of the Niche’s support to tribes without however interfering in their business or advancing some persons not others. He highlighted that whoever underestimates the tribes ignores their depth and marginalizes society, reminding of the role of Imam Mohsen Al Hakim (May Allah sanctify his soul) and his relationship with tribes. He indicated that the project of a modern and fair state is one that was elaborated by the Martyr of the Niche movement, and followed by the project of “Wasit, the province of the future”. All these projects are scientific and based on structured plans. His Eminence finally called to support these projects and explain them to the people, for they are in the interest of citizens.
