Swedish Diplomat Visits Imam Ali (AS) Holy Shrine

Swedish Ambassador to Iraq, Jörgen Lindström, described Imam Ali (AS) as one of the most important figures in history.

He made the remark during a visit to Imam Ali’s (AS) holy shrine in Najaf, the website of the holy shrine’s Astan (custodianship) reported.

“It is the second time I pay a visit to the shrine of Imam Ali,” he said, adding “I have been touched by the spiritual atmosphere in this place.”

“We are talking about one of the major human, historic and religious personalities,” the Swedish diplomat underlined.

Lindström also said he saw a kind of calm and pure servitude to God on the face of the pilgrims of Imam Ali (AS).

During the visit, officials of the Astan informed the Swedish ambassador of the activities being carried for the renovation of the mausoleum.
