? the (anti-IS) Hashd (volunteer) groups pursued a comprehensive and effective recruitment.’’ Carnegie’s Middle East Center noted in November 2015 “Their success is largely attributed to Sistani’s (2014) fatwa’’ It cited well-informed contacts in Baghdad to estimate that some 80 per cent of men of fighting age had signed up from Shia provinces The center acknowledged the Hashd’s critical role in anti-IS resistance even as it had challenged “the state’s monopoly on force’’ The volunteers played an important part in reclaiming territories like Ramadi and wresting control over the Mosul-Raqqa route that choked IS’s finances and blocked its lifeline oil exports These volunteers have paid a heavy price though Pictures of fallen heroes with eulogies dot public squares highways markets and shrines from Najaf to Baghdad around 170 km away The heroes are celebrated in the media; giant screens relay visuals from the battlefields to keep alive the spirit of resistance which Iraqis insist is a unified — hence successful — battle for their existence Most Iraqis are at pains to negate “the western projection” of the war in sectarian terms Jalandhar-born Basheer Hussain Najafi one of the five Grand Ayatollahs and potential Sistani successor echoed the common refrain saying that Iraqis are united in the fight “We have smashed these terrorists; they violated women and killed children of Shias as well as Sunnis’’ Najafi whose family had migrated to Pakistan in 1947 told Indian journalists at his carpeted office in Najaf last year “God forbid God forbid God forbid they are lying that Shia are oppressing Sunnis’’ Across the road from Najafi’s office Ali the Prophet’s son-in-law lies buried in the golden-domed mausoleum Ali is central to Shia devotion and Shias consider him the Prophet’s only rightful heir unlike Sunnis who revere him as one of the four caliphs In the fight against IS there is cross-sectarian unanimity that the enemy is a modern day manifestation of the Kharijites (defectors) who had assassinated Ali in AD 661 Puritanical Saudi Arabian Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al ash-Sheikh is among those who have denounced IS as modern-age “Kharijites” The Shia clergy has likened IS to the killers of Ali’s son Husain and 72 members of the Prophet’s family at Karbala in 680 AD It has linked the fight against IS to the survival of true Islam that Husain laid down his life for This has given the “anti-IS jihad” a greater sense of purpose The fallen heroes are seen to embody the continuation of Husain’s struggle They regularly make their final journeys via his shrine in Karbala before they are laid to rest amid salutations for the Prophet and his family Pilgrims have been pitching in by stuffing money into boxes seeking donations to help “the popular voluntary forces against IS” at the shrine where cleric Syed Afzal al-Shami credited Sistani’s call for the success against IS He underlined that Muslims were IS’s primary target and emphasised that the war alone would not defeat the group “This ideology has to be countered militarily as well as through information’’ he said Abdul Mahdi Karbalai Sistani’s representative in Karbala insisted that Iraqis were fighting the real jihad against IS He referred to Sistani’s call and added that it was issued to defend the country against indiscriminate barbarity “They want it their way and whosoever opposes them is killed brutally A lot of people from different religions and sects responded to the call to work together’’ he told Indian journalists in his well-appointed opulent office He called Sunnis their brothers and added they were defending the entire world that IS threatens Karbalai regretted the projection of the war in sectarian terms “IS has killed a lot of Sunnis who are battling them’’ he said underlining that IS’s violence has affected all Iraqis — Shia Sunni and Christians — and that they were fighting together Mohammed Mikhlif a Sunni tribal chief and Hashd commander from the battlefront in Anbar said Islamic State’s “unruliness” was the biggest challenge “They are not worried about killing women and children’’ he told the journalists at Hashd’s headquarters in Baghdad that was a far cry from Najaf and Karbala with jumpy soldiers virtually manning every nook and cranny of the barricaded capital According to Mikhlif Sunni tribal leaders have joined the resistance voluntarily “We work under the prime minister and take orders from the military’’ he insisted while appearing to dispel reports of the mushrooming of militias to claim government funding He added that even farmers and traders had joined the resistance in the Sunni-dominated Anbar “They said we are Sunnis and will support you But they are oppressive We will defend our country’’ said Mikhlif He blamed “outsiders’’ and some politicians for spreading canards that Iraq had an anti-Sunni government “Later we realised it was politics and destroying Iraq Sunnis are the worst hit’’ he said flanked by Shia commanders Meesam Zaidi and Kareem al-Noree Noorie said that fears were stoked that they will kill Sunnis before Tikrit’s liberation “We are looking after the city which is peaceful We are sacrificing’’ he said The efforts at unity appear to have fructified in Tikrit In November Scott Peterson of The Christian Science Monitor wrote that the June 2014 Camp Speicher massacre in Tikrit Saddam Hussein’s hometown had “terrorised Iraq’s Army and driven a wedge’’ between Sunnis and Shias Peterson added that “determined bridge-building’’ had curbed “powerful tribal impulse for revenge’’ in the region He credited a “systematic effort” by Iraqi officials and bridge-building “facilitators” that pulled in key Sunni tribes and Shia leaders for defusing demands for retribution According to him Tikrit’s Sunni leaders showed that they had been victims too “They described how some 500 Shia Speicher cadets had secretly been shepherded to safety by local Sunnis They noted also that Shias among the 10000 students at Tikrit University were unharmed’’ Peterson wrote It is this bridge-building that is now being seen as a model for Iraq to rise from the ashes For all the latest World News
