Shia Rights Watch Voices Concerns over Violation of the Rights of Shias in Iraq

Following the mixed signals sent to the Shia community in Iraq by the country’s leadership, Shia Rights Watch voiced its concerns and published the following message: Iraq’s president, prime minister, and the parliament speaker, as the power houses in the Iraqi government have refused to congratulate the occasion of Eid Al-Ghadir, to the large community of Shia Muslims in this country. Shia Rights Watch believes that this amount of indifference to the feelings of the country’s majority population needs to be addressed and condemned. It is worth noting that these Iraqi officials do not miss any chances to commemorate the holy and tribal occasions that belong to other religious and ethnic groups in this country.
