News and Reports



The Imam Hussain Shrine has received a delegation of Arab and foreign photographers, cameramen, and journalists to cover the event of the Arba’een pilgrimage.

Turkish head of journalists and director of Meltem TV Station Jawad Ghok said that they came to Karbala to commemorate and ensure coverage for the Arba’een pilgrimage and broadcast it to the world as it is, away from misinformation.

Ghok added, “There is obfuscation and misinformation about the Arba’een pilgrimage in order to distort its principles for international interests: foreign and Arab countries; this is what has been observed by our media specialists.”

“We have broadcast the current event to more than 900 Turkish media outlets, including our Live broadcast, in addition to two journalists writing for Turkish Morning Magazine, which is printed in more than a million copies and distributed throughout Turkey,” said further Ghok.

He noted that it is important to let the world know about the Arba’een pilgrimage, the Iraqi hospitality, and the sense of humanity practiced with pilgrims.
