The Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, commended the efforts of the authorities for the two holy shrines in Karbala, security forces and followers of Ahl Al Bayt in performing the religious rituals. This came in a speech published on his Facebook page on Saturday, 16/11/2013.
His Eminence also praised the efforts of members of the Martyr of the Niche Movement in commemorating the 9th of Muharram in 14 provinces, explaining that they’re a source of price because rituals were held in difficult weather conditions, in heavy rain and during official working hours.
