TRT World, Grand Ayatollah Ali al Sistani’s influence over Iraq

"Iraq’s Grand Ayatollah Ali al Sistani, one of Iraq’s most influential Shia clerics, isn’t involved in day-to-day governance. But when the 77-year-old comments on politics as the highest religious authority in the country, his words cannot be ignored." I write about Sistani in my book 'Hashtag Islam'.
