Hashd al-Shaabi and Shi­ites con­spire against Kurds and Sun­nis

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Mem­ber in the De­fense Com­mit­tee in the Iraqi Par­lia­ment, Shakhawan Ab­dul­lah, re­veals that the Shi­ites in co­op­er­a­tion with the Hashd al-Shaabi are con­spir­ing against the Kurds and the Sun­nis.

"The Shi­ites are pre­vent­ing Sunni refugees and dis­placed peo­ple to re­turn to their home­towns. Most of the dis­placed peo­ple are based in Kirkuk which might make threat on the de­mog­ra­phy of the area in the fu­ture," said Ab­dul­lah.

Ab­dul­lah thinks that the Shi­ites are tar­get­ing both the Sun­nis and Kurds at the same time by this plan as they pre­vent the Sun­nis from go­ing back to their homes. They also want to cre­ate prob­lems be­tween Kurds and Sun­nis in Kirkuk.

"The Sun­nis have raised their voices in­side the Par­lia­ment against the con­spir­acy. We need as Kurds to raise our voices too. We should not let Hashd al-Shaabi achieve their pur­poses," he noted.

When­ever their home­towns lib­er­ated Ab­dul­lah said, the dis­placed peo­ple need to be asked to go back to where they came from.

Hashd al-Shaabi is an Iraqi state-spon­sored um­brella or­ga­ni­za­tion com­posed of some 40, 000 al­most ex­clu­sively Shi­ite mili­tias. It was formed for de­ploy­ment against the IS. The or­ga­ni­za­tion was formed by unit­ing ex­ist­ing mili­tias un­der the "Peo­ple's Mo­bi­liza­tion Com­mit­tee" of the Iraqi Min­istry of In­te­rior in June 2014.
