Al-Sadr reveals the party behind the targeting of party offices
Al-Sadr said in a lengthy tweet, "Some political forces opposed to the elections in the past and to the government of the national majority now resorted to the Iraqi judiciary, and we did not issue a comment regarding that, as it is a legal matter available to everyone... Rather, it was a cause for satisfaction on our part, even if they did not reach their goal, according to legal data.
He added, "As for some of those affiliated with them to resort to violence and target the headquarters of parties loyal to the majority government, this is not acceptable to reason, Sharia and law."
And he added, "The wise among them should hurry to stop these demagogic groups and curb them... it is not logical for a politician to resort to violence if he does not get what he wants. Politics is a day for you and a day for you. It tarnishes its reputation among the people.
Al-Sadr said, "The government should also take the most severe security measures and expedite the detection of its perpetrators, so that the democratic process does not turn into a puppet in the hands of all people."
He continued by saying, "We say this not out of weakness or fear.. Everyone knows who we are.. But we love peace, love the homeland and the people, and we will not expose them to danger and contempt."
And he added, "You must also know that we are not clinging to power, but we want reform and banishing the specter of corruption, terrorism, occupation and normalization through political means, and we are capable, as you know."
He also said, "If we lost the elections or gave up or were excluded from forming a majority government, we would not take violence at all. This is what we have been taught to do, and we will not allow anyone who belongs to us to do that. So discipline your subjects as we have taught us. The doctrine preserves its reputation, not through violence and aggression against others."
