Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Iraqi cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr, rejected what he described as “equality” between Ali bin Abi Talib and Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan, in the framework of a new criticism of the “Muawiya” series, which will be shown on the “MBC” channel during next month of Ramadan.
Al-Sadr wrote on his documented page on Twitter that everyone knows his renunciation of sectarianism, “but that does not mean accepting equality” between Ali bin Abi Talib and Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan.
And the Shiite cleric indicated that history is proven by all Islamic sects that Muawiya went out and defected from (the successor of the Messenger of God) and ordered him to be cursed and killed among the companions who did not agree with that.
Al-Sadr added, “It is unfair and unfair to equate them or bring them together with a drama series that falsifies history and deviates from facts,” he said.
And the leader of the Sadrist movement added, “As for God… if the series were for another character who did not belong to the Abu Sufyan family and the Umayyah family, I would not have uttered a word,” as he put it.
Al-Sadr attacked the series a few days ago, saying that it did not agree with the “moderate policy” of Saudi Arabia, and CNN contacted MBC for comment, but the Saudi channel said that it had no comment on Al-Sadr’s statement.
