The Karbala Heritage Center, affiliated to the Department of Islamic and Human Sciences Affairs at the al-Abbas's Holy Shrine, launched this morning Saturday (Rabi al-Awal 6, 1442 AH) corresponding to (October 24, 2020), the activities of the first international scientific conference entitled (Karbala Heritage and its place in the Islamic Library), which is held under the slogan: (Our heritage is our identity) through the (zoom) platform with the participation and follow-up of a number of researchers and specialists in the field of heritage from inside and outside Iraq.
The conference began with the recitation of verses from the Holy Quran, then there was a speech of the General Secretariat of the al-Abbas's holy shrine, delivered by Sheikh Ali Al-Asadi, Deputy Head of the Department of Islamic and Human Sciences Affairs, in which he stated: “This global city has been honored and distinguished by God Almighty from the rest of the cities, thanks to its characteristics that deserve research and hard work to explore the depths of its bright history, which has been absent through dark eras. And reviving its heritage is a responsibility that is entrusted primarily to the governmental and academic elites and investigators, because they are the educated segment capable of revealing what is intended to disappear."
After that, the morning research session was opened with the participation of researchers from inside and outside Iraq.
The director of the center, Dr. Ihsan Al-Gharifi, explained to the Al-Kafeel network, saying: "The total number of papers that were accepted within the conference axes reached (192) papers from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Great Britain, in addition to Iraq."
He added: “The conference will witness two morning and evening sessions. And the participants will be given a certificate of participation while the attendees will be given a certificate of attendance at this international conference, which the current circumstances forced us to hold it online as a result of the repercussions of the Corona epidemic. And we hope that the presented research in these sessions will achieve the desired goals in shedding light on important matters of the Karbala heritage. "
