A top Iranian cleric called on the Islamabad government to reverse the policy of inaction on the frequent killings of Shiite Muslims in terrorist attacks in that country.
AhlulBayt News Agency - Tehran's Interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Mohammed Emami-Kashani said ominous triangle of Saudi money, Zionist's policy and US power prevents the progress of original Islam.
Ayatollah Emami-Kashani who led this week’s ritual of Friday Prayers in Tehran noted the Islam that Takfiris and ISIL preach is not the noble and original one.
Praising Leader's comments on Islam, he noted that the only person who well describes the Revolution at home and abroad is the Iranian Leader Ayatollah Khamenei; "He stands at the peak, where he sees all the world and then makes remarks."
Stating that the global arrogance seeks to wipe out Islam, Emami-Kashani stressed the need for unity, saying the Muslim nation should stick into the Prophet teachings and never let enemies of Islam to tarnish the Quran and Islam, for which the Islamic world is truly responsible.
Interim Friday Prayers Leader pointing to the Bahraini government's crackdown on Shia clerics, said the government has closed and ruined the Bahrain Shia mosques torturing clerics. "The Muslim world must sympathize with the oppressed Muslims of Bahrain," he underlined.
Pointing to the oppressed Shias in Pakistan, Emami-Kashani said "they beat and kill Shias in Pakistan, some Shia clerics has protested the violence along with some Sunni scholars; even Christian scholars support them, but the government is silent."
He urged the Pakistani government to protect the rights of Shias in the country.
Targeted killings against Shiite Muslims in Pakistan have drawn international outrage, with rights groups and regional countries expressing concern over the growing deadly violence.
Shiites are seen as a minority group in Pakistan. They make up about a fifth of the country's population of over 180 million.
Emami-Kashani in another part of his sermon in Friday Prayers this week, said the spread of drugs is the US policy, saying "they (the US policy makers) import terrorism on the one hand and drug on the other hand."
He pointed to the enlightening task and role of teachers and educators regarding drugs and expressed gratitude to the security forces who fight against drugs and sacrifice in the way.
