(AhlulBayt News Agency) - “Typically, when a criminal scene takes place, the shooter can only injure a few people, but in Las Vegas Shooting almost 600 hundred people were killed or injured. “ said the senior cleric.
Speaking at his advanced jurisprudence course in Qom’s Grand mosque on Saturday, senior Shi scholar Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi thanked Muslims for holding magnificent mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussein (as) all around the world with respect to Islamic principles.
“As I’ve seen in photos and reports, the ceremonies were attended by numerous AhlulBayt’s (as) lovers all around the world including European Muslims; the name and teachings of Imam Hussein (as) reach new horizons as years go by.” Grand Ayatollah asserted.
In another part of his speech, the Shia source of emulation touched on the recent incident of Las Vegas shooting in the US saying, “Typically, when a criminal scene takes place, the shooter can only injure a few people, but in Las Vegas Shooting almost 600 hundred people were killed or injured. “
“This shows that the US is the most dangerous country in the world since the security forces are incapable of living up to their duties in order to account for such incidents and decrease the number of casualties.”
It must be noted that the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday October 1, that left at least 59 people dead and over 500 wounded was the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history and once again highlighted America's extreme rate of gun violence.
