Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem praised the sacrifices of the oppressed female freed prisoners of the Shiite Turkmen and Shabak, who were subjected to a great injustice, by the Dash criminals, who invaded the sanctities, sacred places and souls.

At the end of the reception, His eminence asked the Almighty Allah to avenge them from their oppressors, and to compensate them with the best awards in this world and the hereafter.
