(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Ayatollah Sobhani said, “Iran’s supreme leader rightfully warned about the country’s recent population decline, and now as we see his warning has worked.”
Speaking at the Islamic Seminary and the population decline convention which was held at the Imam Kadhim (A.S) Islamic school in Qom today, Ayatollah Sobhani, a Shia source of emulation appreciated the organizers of this convention and said, “Widely promoting the motto ‘Fewer children, better life’ on media is dangerous. Sometime a family cannot really afford to have children, but if the ‘Fewer children, better life’ becomes a culture in the society, the future of the country will be at stake.” He added, “West invented this culture, but the statistics show they did not obey their own order on decreasing the population.”
His eminence added, “Now the right culture should be promoted and we should get TV, radio and all authorities to help with this issue.”
Ayatollah Sobhani noted, “Iran’s supreme leader rightfully warned about the country’s recent population decline, and now as we see his warning has worked.”
The revered source of emulation stressed that divine teachings encourage population growth.
He further mentioned the hunger issues in many African countries and reiterated, “Those who raise the issue of hunger in Africa to oppose the need of population growth do not know that this hunger is political and not natural. Because if human beings share God’s blessings equally, there would be no such problems in the world.”
