This article contradicts itself.
First, it says:
...several people took the controversial step of turning their march political in order to denounce terror in all forms.
Several people out of millions? That isn't a large number. Even if the term "several" was stretched out to 100 people, and usually the context of several would be between 3 and 12 or so, that is still a fraction of a percent of one million.
Then they say this:
It is noteworthy to mention the mainstream media blackout of the millions people marched gathering in war torn Iraq, battling the ISIS, as a clear sign of biased reporting.
No. They aren't "battling the ISIS". They are on a yearly pilgrimage.
They aren't fighting anyone.
This article is strange and very misleading.
were making a political statement about ISIS.
Given the mainstream media’s constant sensationalized reporting on terror and Muslims in the Western world, the utter lack of coverage of Arbaeen’s march on Sunday and Monday revealed the double standard that exists in reporting on peaceful Muslims.
Monday marked the final day of the mourning for Imam Hussein who was martyred in a battle with the massive army of Yazid after refusing allegiance to the tyrant caliph. Yazid the caliph of Umayyad dynasty was promoting the same type of Islam as ISIS and Wahhabist preach today.
