Top Iraqi Islamic scholar Al-Modarresi has tested positive for the deadly coronavirus days after he claimed that the virus is Allah’s way of punishing the Chinese.
The 63 year old Iraqi scholar and prominent Shia Leader was captured on video making these revelations to the public. He said;
“It is obvious that the spread of this virus is an act of Allah. How do we know this? The spread of the coronavirus began in China, an ancient and vast country, the population of which makes up one-seventh of humanity.
“More than a billion people live in that country. The authorities in that country are tyrannical, and they laid siege to more than a million Muslims and placed them under house arrest. The journalists in that country began to mock the niqab of Muslim women, and they forced Muslim men to eat pork and drink wine.
“Allah sent a disease upon them and this disease laid siege to 40 million [Chinese people]. The same niqab that they mocked has been forced upon them, both men and women, by Allah, by means of the state authorities and officials.”
