- Shia cleric Muktada al-Sadr quits politics
- There is no political disorder in the whole country
- 20 people died trying to enter the green zone
The petrol-diesel tanks in the cars had ‘Iraq water’ written on them. Iraq has been devastated over the past two decades. Now it is on the verge of extinction. There is no government from the previous one. There is no minister. There is no arrangement. Those who have a bus in their hands, they are running their respective areas. People are so upset that on Monday when Shia cleric Muktada al-Sadr announced his resignation from politics, his supporters took to the streets. Opponents were also on the streets. But for the last 15 days, there was a stir among the supporters. He was occupied everywhere from the Parliament. The video went viral all over the world. In such a situation, when the religious leader announced to leave politics, he created a ruckus. Alam is that now the army has declared emergency and curfew in the whole country. People have refused to come to the capital Baghdad. Meanwhile, people associated with health services said that around 20 people have died in the tornado that continued in the last few hours.
Where were these people killed?
Iraq is the capital of Iraq. The name of the capital is Baghdad. There is another country-like area inside Baghdad, which is called the Green Zone. This is where the US once occupied the whole of Iraq. The whole of Iraq is still on fire, but seeing the Green Zone means inviting death. Supporters of Shia cleric Muktada al-Sadr left other places inside Baghdad and started marching towards the Green Zone and calling it. The Green Zone is a guideline, which no one can violate. But when the supporters of Muktada al-Sadr ran towards the Green Zone, fire started raining from inside. So far 20 people have died in a few hours. And Jaane Kanetya is injured.

What is deadlock?
Iraq has no government for almost a year. There is no prime minister. Sunnis are the largest in terms of population. Then there are Shias. Kurds again. Kurds are confined to their own Kurdistan. When Saddam was in power, Shias were in power, then Sunnis came. Now Shia supporters are on the streets with the support of Iran. Now both these parties are on the streets and fighting amongst themselves. What will happen, that time will tell. At present, protesters are occupying government residences and offices. Bullets are being fired in the Green Zone. The people of the US embassy have left. He was evacuated by helicopter. But those who are ready to die are dying. And how long this will last, no one knows.
