Sadr stresses importance of media role in denouncing sectarianism
Prominent Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on Tuesday stressed the importance of mass media role in denouncing sectarianism and promoting patriotic sentiments in Iraq.

Sadr made the remarks during a meeting with a number of media professionals and social media activists in Najaf on Tuesday

Media is an anti-corruption weapon and must be a tool of reform to expose corrupted people, he added.

Al-Sadr said that media specialists have the same role as politicians in dealing with the issues of the oppressed and suffering of the poor.

Sadr called on the media outlets to give priority to the national interests on personal and sectarian interests in order to unite the Iraqi factions and avoid sedition.
