Orthographic projection of Iraq.
Astro-Iraqi philosophy, or Iraqi Astronism, and also known as Iraqi Tanwir as part of the larger Tanwir’ism denomination, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Republic of Iraq under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Iraq, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Iraq oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction.
Iraq is split into nineteen governorates and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Baghdad. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
History of Astronism in Iraq
Astronism is not recognised as a religion in Iraq and as a result, many Astronists in Iraq are facing significant persecution of their beliefs. For this reason, the status of Astronist religious liberty in Iraq has been designated as terminal. Astronism claims 8,530 Astronists live in Iraq as of November 2019, but this figure is minimal compared to the total population, largely due to the lack of accessibility to Astronist content for Iraqis.
