Source: damdam.ir

Three big billboards against Rouhani appeared in Mashhad. In the billboards Rouhani is portrayed as Umar Ibn Sa’d, the commander who led the troops against Husayin Bin Ali, during the Battle of Kerbala (680 AD). The battle ended with the killing of Husayin Bin Ali, who was the grandson of Muhammad and is considered the First Imam in the Shia Islam (Imam Hussein). The killing of Imam Hussein is annually remembered in the Day of Ashura (10 Muharram). Representing Rouhani as the killer of Imam Hussein is like to accuse the Iranian President to be a “takfir“.
