AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Leader of Iraq's National Wisdom Movement, Seyyed Ammar Hakim, stressed the crisis of sacrilegious cartoon is more of an opportunity to introduce Islam and cleansing the image of holy religion from misbehaviors of the extremist Takfiri (excommunication) terrorists.
Top Iraqi cleric attending the opening ceremony of 34th Islamic Unity Conference held online called the annual event as an opportunity to cleanse the image of Islam from tarnishes brought by Takfiri terrorists stressing solidarity as a basis for success in every movement.
He said," To unite views in every campaign is a basis for success as without solidarity there is no might."
He called Muslim nation as a nation with enough potentials for creativity, smartness and efficiency and said," We should form committees to pursue the discussions in the Islamic Unity Conference and reaching a clear result."
Senior Iraqi cleric called on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought and other bodies in the world of Islam to plan an effective role in improvement of the relations between Muslim states and move towards materialization of fundamental plans in Muslim world, the most important of them unity of Muslim world.
Seyyed Ammar Hakim also touched upon the issue of Palestine as a leading crisis in the world of Islam and said the problem will not be marginalized throughout the time.
He said," To misuse the circumstances for promoting normalization of ties with Israel is a vain investment."
He once again condemned reprinting of sacrilegious cartoon of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in French magazine and said," To insult Islamic sanctities cannot be called a view or freedom of expression because freedom is meaningless when it contrasts interests of the people let alone sanctities and beliefs of nearly two billion Muslims across the globe."
Iraqi cleric made the comments at the opening ceremony of 34th Islamic Unity Conference which is held virtually due to the new coronavirus circumstances.
More than 350 lecturers will deliver online speech at 34th Islamic Unity Conference on "Islamic Cooperation in Face of Calamities and Disasters."
