Tehran (IP) - The magnificent Arbaeen mourning rituals unite Muslims worldwide and prevent their divisions, making enemies hopeless and disillusioned, says Iran's Parliament Speaker.

Iran Press/Iran news: Appreciating Iraqi people and officials' hosting Arbaeen pilgrims, especially Iranian pilgrims, Mohammad-Bagher Ghalibaf said on Tuesday: Arbaeen March will be held every year more magnificently than the previous years and will indicate the strong ties of different nations, especially Iran-Iraq nation and the progress of the Islam among the world's nations.

Commemorating the 'Sacred Defense Week,' he said: Time will never be able to erase the memory of martyrs who sacrificed their lives to defend the country from our minds.

He further stressed: that Sacred Defense martyrs are role models for youth to take firm steps to develop the country without fear of enemies.

In his remarks, Ghalibaf referred to Mahsa Amini's case and emphasized: I ordered a thorough probe into the case of a young woman who died until all its aspects came into the light.

He continued: The concerned state bodies must follow up their duties perfectly by training their forces regarding hejab to prevent such incidents.

Mahsa Amini, a 22 years Iranian girl, fainted at the police department in Tehran on Tuesday after being taken for violation of dress codes along with some other women.
