The Supreme Religious Authority raises many questions in the second sermon of the Friday prayer of the 7th of Dhu al-Hijjah 1440 AH corresponding to August 9, 2019, which was held in the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and led by his eminence Sayed Ahmad al-Safi. Most important of which? Is there any solution for our problems or not?
He stated: All segments of Iraqi society have legitimate political, economic, social, and administrative inquiries, but such inquiries no politician has yet responded to.
These questions carry suffering that should certainly not remain. We read or hear many of these questions that spontaneously show the aspirations of people. These questions stem from the reality of what we live, their central focus is that the citizen feels injustice.
We, as a people, live in Iraq, is there hope and a time frame for our issues to be tackled or not, and why are we always exhausted and suffering? Isn’t it time for us to feel at ease and our basic demands are responded to? How long will this situation remain, and when will our issues end?
People are missing their rights. Politicians – every so often – make empty promises about legislating laws that attend to the needs of people, but nothing has been achieved.
