This tribute comes after the great efforts made by all media workers.

Adding: "You know that since twelve years and all praise to God, despite all the circumstances through which Iraq is going, we insist on the establishment of this festival, by performing these rituals and reminding the sacrifices given by these great personalities to Islam and to the whole humanity, in fact we perform a part of our duty towards the Messenger of Allah (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household), which is showing the love and loyalty to his holy Household, through remiding their sacrifices and calamities. In addition that we believe that receiving delegations coming to Iraq and inviting them to have tours inside the Iraqi cities, especially the holy cities, is of great importance as it removes the suspicions created by the exceptional circumstances of the unjust media attack intending the distortion of the picture of Iraq."
