Hujjat-ul-Islam Shahriari expressed sympathy with the bereaved family and the people of Afghanistan for the demise of the senior cleric and former minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock.
Late Hujjat-ul-Islam Mohammad Hadi Hadi was an active member of the sacred Jihad campaign, director of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), member of the Shia scholars and Islamic fraternity council.
Born in 1958 in Hisa-e-Awali Behsud, Maidan Wardak Province in Afghanistan, Hujjat-ul-Islam Seyyed Mohammad Hadi Hadi ended his school years in Kabul before moving to Iran’s Mashhad and Qom seminaries to continue his higher education.
He was an active figure during the Saur Revolution in 1978 and combating against the Soviet invasion of December 1979. The late scholar was appointed as representative of Kabul in Loya Jirga (grand assembly) and played a key role in establishment of the Islamic fraternity assembly of Afghanistan.
