On 3rd August, 2017, the Cultural Council of Jawadain Library held its 96th cultural seminar under the title: “A reading in Sayyed Sistani’s Fatwa and its Effects”. The seminar was attended by some religious, academic and intellectual personalities. A research paper was presented and discussed by Dr. Ali Jameel Al-Musawi explaining the meaning of “Courses of History” and the relation between the Courses of History and the Fatwa pronounced. He also touched on the humanitarian and military basics and dimensions which arose as a result of the Fatwa that created a new culture and contributed much to Iraq’s unity and firmly establishing the national and Islamic principles. “The Fatwa”, he noted, “gave the people the chance to defend their country following the terrorist invasion of Takfiris”.
