Germany Refurbishes the Holiest Yazidi Shrine in Iraq

AZZAMAN IN ENGLISH

GERMANY - Germany has earmarked $200,000 for refurbishing Yazidis’ holiest shrine in Iraq. The Yazidis are one of the most secretive communities in the world. They are not Muslims. They are not Christians or Jews. Sheikh Adi’s shrine is the holiest among the Yazidi community across the world. It is their mecca, where they gather in their tens of thousands every year in September and October for a fortnight of festivities. [link]
