Eight ladies of chastity and veil promotion and cultural activists from Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Turkey visited Raḍawī holy shrine.
Gulale Alo Kou, a cultural activist from Netherlands, expressing her pleasure in attending the shrine of Imam Riḍā (P.B.U.H.) said, “I have experienced many racist and humiliating behaviors for veiling. My studies at the university were also prevented in some periods”.
“Since I chose the veil as a top cover, I was rejected by my friends and mocked. I have chosen the Islamic veil consciously and not by force, and I will remain in this path”, she said.
Arezo Chicken Kaya, a poet of the household of the Apostle of Allah (P.B.U.H. & H.H.) from Austria also said, “We want more contact with the Islamic and Shīʿa centers of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Āstān Quds Raḍawī in particular.”
“We consider ourselves servant of Imam Riḍā (P.B.U.H.) in Austria and we are eager to introduce the style and lifestyle of the eighth Imam (P.B.U.H.) to the European youth and ladies”, she said.
“In the month of Muharam this year in our city, we set up the mourning ceremony for Imam Ḥusayn (P.B.U.H.)”, said Belgin Yalchin, from Turkey, saying that they are carrying greetings of devotees to Imam Riḍā (P.B.U.H.).
The Turkish lady asked the authorities of Āstān Quds Raḍawī to send the cultural products and missionaries to Turkey more than before to provide Turkish people with the teachings of the household of the Apostle of Allah (P.B.U.H. & H.H.).
It is worth mentioning that while visiting Āstān Quds Raḍawī’s Islamic propaganda deputy, the group attended in the Dār al-Raḥma portico to learn about a portion of the international activities of the Non-Iranian Pilgrims Office. At the end, they were presented with gifts from this administration.
