Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem received a delegation representing the Christian Church and the media in Germany. His Eminence called for the communication of the truths as they are, and that the Marji’iyyah has no interests except to serve humanity and to safeguard their souls.

His Eminence received this delegation on Tuesday 27 February 2018 and spoke with them, in which they presented to him their work in Iraq and other regions, and their endeavours to report the realities as they are to the world, and what they have experienced due to that.

His Eminence, during this meeting, expressed to his guests the fatherly role of the Marji’iyyah in society in realising peace, and the great emphasis it has in preserving the lives of the men, women and children, as well as their property, whatever creed and race they have; the Marji’iyyah has no interests except to serve people and to protect them from dangers.

His Eminence called the media to accuracy and the informing of the truth, without seeing which party it will suit and which party it will not suit.

His Eminence emphasised his respect towards all those who strive towards knowing the truth and knowing the great lies, accusations and deceptions that have targeted the Shi’ahs.
