In an interview with Rasa News Agency, one of the commanders of the Popular Mobilization ‎Forces, stated that the Iraqi people are following the path outlined by the Supreme Leader ‎of the Islamic Revolution.‎

According to Rasa News Agency’s correspondent in Najaf,‎‏ ‏Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Hadi ‎al-Jazayiri, one of the commanders of the Popular Mobilization Forces said, “The Islamic ‎Seminary of Najaf invites the organizers of Iraqi mawkibs [mourning groups and ‎organizations] to hold cultural events during the days of Arba’in of Imam al-Husayn. These ‎programs can include extensive lectures and the explanation of legal rulings.”‎
‎ ‎
His Eminence continued, “The religious authorities of Najaf called on Iraqi citizens and ‎organizers of mawkibs to have a brotherly relationship with all pilgrims, especially Iranian ‎pilgrims, during the time of the Arba’in pilgrimage.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam al-Jazayiri said that the Zionist regime and the United States are trying to ‎provoke the Iraqi people to kill each other and to inflame the Sunni-Shi’ah tensions but the ‎Iraqi people were vigilant over the enemies’ plots.”‎

He pointed to the meeting of Iraqi organizers of mawkibs with the Supreme Leader of the ‎Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei], adding, “We are soldiers who regard the meeting ‎with the Supreme Leader of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as a source of honour and the Iraqi ‎people will not kneel before the oppressors and will obey the path laid out by the Supreme ‎Leader because Iran’s stance during the events that Iraq witnessed proved the policies that ‎Tehran has taken have been a position of power. These policies arose from the wisdom of ‎the Supreme Leader.”‎

In a recent meeting with Iraqi organizers of mawkibs, the Supreme Leader emphasized that ‎the Islamic and Arab dignity of the Iraqi people in regard to the hospitality of the Arba’in ‎pilgrims is unique and is based on love for Imam al-Husayn and added, “From the bottom of ‎my heart and on behalf of the Iranian people, I thank all of you, the organizers of mawkibs, ‎who display the highest dignity and affection during the time of Arba’in, and all of the great ‎people of Iraq and its government officials who have secured the grounds for this great ‎movement, and we also thank the scholars and great sources of emulation of Iraq.”
