Al-Sadr: we welcome Pope Francis to Iraq

Shafaq News / the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr on Saturday, issued a statement regarding Pope Francis' upcoming visit to Iraq.

Al-Sadr said in a tweet, "I received information that some parties re against the Pope's visit."

"The pope is welcomed; our hearts are open to him before our doors."

He added, "Najaf Al-Ashraf is the capital of religions, so we welcome him as a lover of peace. Peace be upon the followers of Prophet Jesus, and Prophet Moses, unless they declare hostility toward religions (such as the Zionist entity). All the followers of Prophet Muhammad are your brother in peace and Islam." Al-Sadr said
