Sadr blasts abuses inflicted on religious minorities

Sadr calls for dissolve Ahrar bloc - MP
Chief of the Sadrist Movement Moqtada al-Sadr blasted the violations committed against religious minorities in Iraq, offering cooperation with the government to protect those minorities.
In a statement released by his media office, he said:"All Muslims should consider Christians as their brothers. They should deal with them humanely. They are all brothers in humanity."
He also called on the government to protect Christians and to avail them from the extremist thought embraced by ISIS terrorists.
This comes as minorities in Iraq were harshly abused by ISIS terrorists, who took control large swathes of the country.
Yazidis, for example, were killed, kidnapped and tortured over their identities.
