Indian Shia cleric barred from attending Islamic conference in Tehran

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Senior cleric and president of Anjuman Shari Shian, Agha Seyed Hasan Almosavi Alsafavi had received an invitation from Iran's government to participate in annual International Religious Awarenese Conference.

However, according to a spokesperson, Agha Seyed Hasan will not attend the conference as government of India has not renewed his passport.

The conference will be held in Tehran while Seyed Hasan has been invited by Dr. Velayati.

This conference is being organized every year and Islamic scholars from around the world participate in it.

The spokesperson condemned the government move not to issue passport in Agha Seyed's favour.

"It is irony that religious freedom is being choked for keeping a different political ideology," the spokesperson said.
