Posters on walls in Baghdad to ask Christian women to wear the veil

Baghdad – There are posters on the walls of Baghdad, near the churches and in neighborhoods where there are still Christian communities asking women to wear the veil. The message is addressed directly to Christian women, since the poster portrays the image of the Virgin Mary and a text in which it is emphasized that even the Virgin Mary, docile to the teaching received, wore the veil. The same posters had appeared in some areas of the city in the month of November.

The Iraqi press reports that the posting of pro-veil posters in the streets adjacent to churches and monasteries was for Christians in Baghdad a further sign of intimidation, in addition to kidnappings and targeted to the expropriation of houses and real estate also suffered in recent months by Christians who live in the Iraqi capital.
