The Supreme Religious Authority, His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Sadiq al-Husseini al-Shirazi said that the policy of fighting the Husseini rituals and trying to prevent them was and still is an attempt by those he described as imams of misguidance and unbelief.

“The fight against the blessed Husseini rituals is not a new phenomenon. Just like the Umayyads before, there are governments working to prevent the revival of the rituals and tortures those performing them,” the Grand Ayatollah said in his annual speech on the night of the eleventh of the month of Muharram.

His Eminence added, “During my life, I have lived with five previous governments, and I have seen one of them worse than the other with regard to the Husseini cause and the revival of blessed rituals,” alluding to the era of the criminal Baathist regime and its predecessors from the hostile regimes.

His Eminence also indicated that “the attempt to obliterate and fight the blessed Husseini rituals is not merely represented by fighting them directly. There are other methods that the enemies of the Husseini rituals follow by trying to deny them in the first place.” 

The Supreme Religious Authority concluded by saying that despite the fight against them, the Husseini rituals will increase and expand year after year, as it is a divine promise.
