He added, “The youth harbour ambitions and desires in themselves, thereby, they should attend to human, social and cultural activities and attempt to eradicate cruelty and deprivation.”
This Iraqi scholar, stressing that sports practices benefit both the body and the soul, said, “Tear of the youth while hearing their national anthem shows their love towards their own motherland.”
Finally, Ayatollah Yaqubi criticised some officials and politicians for injecting disappointment into the society.
