The head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, assured that the tribes have a major role in maintaining the Arab and Islamic identity, explaining that the tribe is an important pillar of the Iraqi society and that a strong tribe leads to a strong society and thus to a strong State. He mentioned in this context the saying of the Martyr of the Niche (May Allah sanctify his soul): Religion was maintained through three pillars; religious authority, Husseini rituals and tribes.
In his meeting with the sheikhs, leaders and elites of the tribe of Bani Malek in Baghdad on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, his eminence stressed the need to honor and support Iraqi tribes and not interfere in their internal affairs, explaining that such interferences would lead to a division in society and even in the tribe itself.
Sayyid Al Hakim stated that Iraq needs an inclusive vision, a national project that serves the citizens in different areas, as well as a harmonious and competent team and an administrative revolution that breaks the routine and bureaucracy. His eminence pointed out that the Citizen Bloc has prepared for the four coming years an accurate scientific project to manage and build Iraq and provide the requirements of a decent life for its citizens. It has also developed a precise view of the good relations with the various regional and international parties.
