Mosul (IraqiNews.com) On Sunday, the most prominent Sunni Muslim cleric of Baghdad and head of the Iraqi Scholars Association in the South condemned the killing of 28 Yazidi citizens and the displacement of 3,000 Christian families from Mosul and urged the European Union and international organizations to intervene.

Sheikh Khalid Al Mulla said, in an interview for IraqiNews.com, that “What a pity that the extremist groups of the organization of Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant wore the dress of Islam falsely to kill and displace the Christian brothers who live with us for thousands of years; we have not seen any harassment of them before,” urging that “the religious scholars and Sunni scientists, in particular, should take responsibility in upholding the true voice of Islam “.

Pope Francis I expressed his solidarity with the displaced Christians from the city of Mosul, because of threats of the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, addressing them by saying, “You can be overpowering violence to peace.”

The General Secretariat of the Arab League, earlier, condemned the forced displacement suffered by Christians in Mosul, considering it “a disgrace” that cannot be tolerated.
