The delegation was welcomed by Sayyid Riyadh Al-Hakeem. During the meeting, the affairs of the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) were discussed plus the religious schools, Hawzas, in Pakistan and Iraq. The two sides also emphasized on the importance of communicating with the sensible Muslims in order to face the extremists’ acts that break the sanctities and destroy the bright image of Islam and that of the prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny).
