KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon’s noted cleric Sheikh Mohammad Asif Mohseni has passed away as a result of an illness.

After the establishment of a new democratic system in Afghanistan, Mohseni left active politics and instead continued teaching Jurisprudence at the Khatam Al-Nabiyeen seminary, founded in 2001.

Mohseni pursued studies in the holy city of Najaf in Iraq under Grand Ayatollah Abul Qasim Khoei, Mohsen al-Hakim and Abdul Ala Sabzwari.

Born in 1935 in southern Kandahar province, he was considered one the most powerful Shiite clerics in Afghanistan.
