The Orthodox Armenian Archbishop in Iraq Father Kiburk Arshikan visited the Imam Hussein Holy Shrine in support of social harmony, love, and peaceful co-existence of the Iraqi people.
Father Arshikan said that ISIS uses the name of Islam as a cover to gain legitimacy and recruit militants from around the world.
He added that ISIS, with its radical thought, is unrelated to Islam or its humanitarian message.
He confirmed that Iraqi people unmasked ISIS’ belief, which calls for murdering, terrorizing, displacing, and sexually assaulting innocent families.
“Iraq is now aware of the countries that are attempting to cause sectarianism and problems among the Iraqi people,” added the Archbishop.
