I seldom use this kind of language unless a political/religious leader or their followers have made their speech a load of hooey, and as far as the expression I am using in the title of this article; since Sheikh Muqtada al-Sadr has traveled to Iran enough times, should know the meaning of the Persian expression 'Goh-Khori,' and other readers can look it up in any dictionary if they want to! I have written about Sheikh Muqtada al-Sadr a few times in English and in Persian and do not have much to add! I am just condemning Muqtada Sadr's new edict of two days ago against LGBT where Sheikh Muqtada al-Sadr called for Shiite believers all over the world to combat the LGBT community: which means murdering LGBT+ individuals, the same way Khomeini's fatwa of 1989 against Salman Rushdie meant encouraging Muslims to kill Salman Rushdie! Sheikh Muqtada al-Sadr has tried for so many years to be the Khomeini of Iraq and failed! He does not know, times have changed a lot, and ploys like this, today, are over before they begin, and the disgrace will remain for issuers of such fatwas! In fact, the actions of Muqtada Sadr remind me of Tale of the Slave girl and the Donkey * by Rumi!
