United Nations Secretary General meets with Grand Ayatollah Sistani
Grand Ayatollah Sistani and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon held an unprecedented meeting today, regarding the
crisis in Iraq. The Grand Ayatollah has traditionally refused to meet with representatives from the United States or
Europe. For that reason, a meeting with the United Nations signals a major decision on the part of Sistani.
According to reports, the two leaders discussed not only Iraq, but a variety of worldwide humanitarian disasters. Sources
state that the Grand Ayatollah called upon the United Nations to pay serious attention to human rights deprivations in
Pakistan. Several media outlets have announced a new campaign of targeted “Shia killings” in the country, where
militants specifically target religious leaders and respected professionals in the Shia Muslim populace, in order to
demoralize the entire community. The topic that dominated the conversation, however, was the activities of the
“Islamic State” in Iraq.
Following the meeting, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said “I am extremely honored to have met His Eminence
Grand Ayatollah Al-Sistani today for the first time. He is a man of the deepest wisdom and tolerance. He is an
inspiration and a role model for his many followers in Iraq and beyond. We reviewed the current crisis in Iraq and the
necessary humanitarian response. I expressed the United Nations’ gratitude for His Eminence’s support for all efforts to
protect civilians in the current conflict.”
