The Qamar Cultural Forum is an intellectual cultural forum that targets many social groups, and aims to confront the religious, cultural and social challenges using modern scientific methods and mechanisms away from intolerance and convulsion that lead to negative consequences that cause harm to society.
And thanks to the achievements of this forum, which is held and supervised by the Department of Intellectual and Cultural Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, especially in its previous edition, which included the provinces of Dhi Qar and Babylon, a third edition was held with the participation of 130 university students and teaching bodies from the provinces of Maysan and Muthanna, in the hall of the service complex Sheikh al-Kulayni of the holy shrine.
An integrated program was prepared to help the participants to meet and confront the current religious, cultural and social challenges.
Mr. Ali al-Badri, one of the supervisors of this forum explained to al-Kafeel Network: "The forum includes a variety of ideological and cultural lectures in addition to workshops in psychological engineering and the preparation of leaders, in addition to qualitative lectures in disinformation media to review the ways of media organizations to mislead public opinion and deceive peoples. These lectures are presented by professors and lecturers qualified from the highest levels of the technical and specialized cadres in the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine. The subjects have been selected by specialized cadres living with the problems experienced by the Iraqi individual these days. Therefore, the lectures are dealing with the real problems in the society to answer many questions of the youth."
He added: "We believe that the cultural war now exists and continues to deprive the Iraqi citizen of his religion and national identity, transforming him into an inactive individual in society and indifferent to what is going on, pushing him to despair and achieve a large psychological defeat among the youth, so it is our duty to broadcast the optimism spirit and work to fortify the internal cultural front, by spreading the spirit of love and cooperation and renounce the violation that serves only the enemies of Iraq. "
It is noteworthy that this forum lasts for ten days. The participation in the forum is optional after filling a specific form to show the objectives and purpose of this forum. The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has ensured in addition to the preparation of the program of the lecturers, the means of transportation, accommodation, feeding, etc.
