The Supreme Religious Authority renews its position rejecting the use of violence against peaceful demonstrators

The representative of the supreme religious authority read during the sermon of the Friday prayer of the 12th Jumada Ula 1441 AH corresponding to February 7, 2020, held at the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) the text received from the office of the supreme religious authority in Najaf, in which he stated:

“In spite of the repeated calls made by the religious authority on the need to reject violence and commitment to the peacefulness of demonstrations, and to purify the popular movement demanding reform from actions that harm people’s interests and lose citizens ’solidarity and sympathy, this did not prevent unfortunate and painful accidents in the past days. Unfortunately, precious blood was unjustly shed, the last of which was what happened in the holy city of Najaf last Wednesday evening.”
