BFnews: Batul Marzuq Rija Al-Hashimi, who attended the 7th International Conference of Mahdism, also said that the media need practical policies and strategies for promoting the culture of Intizar.
“If we properly clarify the verses and Hadiths regarding Mahdism, we can combat deviated thoughts and the anti-Islamic propaganda of the enemies,” she underlined.
