The Office of His Eminence Sent a Letter to UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon The office of his Eminence, the religious authority, Sayyid Mohammed Saeed Al-Hakeem (may Allah prolong his life) sent a letter to the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon. It was delivered by Dr. Abdul-Hadi Al-Hakeem to the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General for Iraq, Martin Kobler, on Sunday February 24th, 2013. The letter condemned the criminal attacks against Shia civilians in various countries especially in Iraq and Pakistan. The terrorist acts which include kidnapping and killing, are directed against civilian gatherings like places of worships, marketplaces, residential areas and the like. The letter called the international community and the United Nations to undertake their humanitarian responsibility in stopping the bloodshed of innocent Shias throughout the world and to classify these acts of terror as crimes against humanity and genocide. It also warns that not seriously standing against these ruthless crimes could lead to undesired consequences, including the feeling of the targeted people that moderation and rationality do not provide them with safety.
