by admin

The veiled criminals should be disgraced

Those who do not do anything for the persecuted and target killed Shias, specifically those who have means to help, who can afford to help, those religious scholars who have authority over the wealth of the community, those who control the community treasure house, Khums; they do not take any step for their people.
