Salahuddin Mohammed Bahauddin, Secretary-General of the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU), thanks Hussein Gardachali and Islam Keshani.
The following is the text:
Peace be upon you and Allah's mercy and blessings
I appreciate your courageous stand in compliance with the historic decision to refuse to participate in the expired Kurdistan Parliament.
In these difficult times, we are proud of beautiful examples like you, who in practice turn their backs on positions and dubious money, in order to preserve your historical dignity and your path.
May your lives be filled with the glory of this world and the reward of the Hereafter.
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah
Salahuddin Muhammad Bahauddin
Secretary-General of the Kurdistan Islamic Union
