BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani received Monday a Hezbollah delegation at Dar al-Fatwa.
The delegation, headed by Sheikh Abd al-Majeed Ammar, said the visit aimed at voicing support with the mufti who was accosted last month while attending the funeral of teenager who died as a result of the bombing in Downtown Beirut that targeted former Minister Mohammad Shatah.
On Dec. 29 Several mourners attending the funeral of 16-year-old Mohammad Shaar furiously objected to Qabbani’s presence at the Khashuqji Mosque in Beirut. Qabbani, who is seen by many supporters of the Future Movement as pro-Hezbollah, was trapped inside the mosque for around two hours.
“The purpose of this visit was to reassure his eminence the mufti [of our support] and to condemn the incident that he was subjected to at the Khashuqji mosque,” Ammar said at a news conference.
“We also conveyed the greetings of Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah,” Ammar said.
