AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Referring to the need to avoid partisanship, an Iraqi source of emulation said that maintaining political positions is only possible by working for God and solving the people’s problems.
Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Taqi al-Husayni al-Modarresi, an Iraqi source of emulation based in Najaf, referred to the officials in this country and said, “Some people forget the problems of the people when they come to power and only deal with personal issues and gather their relatives and allies with the aim of maintaining their self-appointed position, unaware that maintaining it is only possible by working for God and solving the problems of the people.”
His Eminence continued, “It has been seventeen years since the new government took the place of the Ba’thist regime in Iraq, and this period was enough to take care of the country and organize its affairs. In addition, there is a large budget, but quotas and partisanship, along with the spread of corruption, prevented the organization of affairs. However, many countries have been able to reorganize with a low budget and a short amount of time.”
In another part of his speech, Ayatollah al-Modarresi stressed the need for the Iraqi people to return to their original culture, which demonstrates peace among all sections of society, and added, “The successive crises that have engulfed Iraq, such as the dictatorship of the previous regime, the American occupation, terrorism and the economic recession, have led to a culture of pessimism and hostility from the mercenary media to create conflict among members of society.”
He added, “We must repent and, as God has commanded us, we must coexist peacefully and not try to dominate over each other and avoid using bad language.”
