Iran to turn White House into Shiite hussainiya by 2065: IRGC officer


Iran plans to turn the White House, the palaces of Versailles and Buckingham into Shi'ite hussainiyas by 2065, Hassan Abbasi, a Revolutionary Guards office said, adding that Shia will be able to celebrate their religious ceremonies in these places.


A hussainiya is a congregation hall for Shia to commemoration ceremonies, especially those associated with the Mourning of Muharram.

ِAbbasi affirmed his country's activities in Aden, Aleppo, and Mosul.

Abbasi appeared in a video posted on a pro-Iran website, talking about "Iran's vision 2065." During the video, he said that his country plans to celebrate the birth of Imam al-Mahdi on 15 August 2065 at the British government headquarters in Buckingham, London.

"We will celebrate Ramadan's Laylat al-Qadr at the Palace of Versailles in the French capital of Paris," Abbasi said.
