The office of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani has emphasized, the office of his Excellency does not have any activity in social Medias and whatever under his name in these networks does not related to him.
There is a channel in Telegram which replies religious queries under the name of Ayatollah Sistani’s office. This channel has no connection with the office of Ayatollah Sistani and his official website on the Internet.
This channel spreads incorrect Fatwas and news, as it has said that the office of Ayatollah Sistani in the holy city of Najaf had announced the Saturday as the last day of the month of Rajab of 1440 A.H., whiles according to Ayatollah Sistani’s Fatwa Saturday is the 29th of the month of Rajab.
The office of his Excellency stated that the believers must not rely on this channel and must break their connection with it, and explained, “The office of Ayatollah Sistani has no activity in social networks and whatever under his name in social networks is fake statement and has no connection to his Excellency.”
