TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian lawmaker said that the danger of Takfiris (extremists) should be minimized through unity among the Muslim community.
“At the current conditions the dangers posed by Takfiris, who are supported by the western powers, should be minimized through unity and solidarity in the Islamic society,” Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, the rapporteur of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission, said Sunday.
“The Takfiri groups are seeking to deepen strife among Muslims,” he said, adding, “And, they have been supported by the western powers and at the current conditions, the danger posed by these groups to the Islamic society should be minimized through unity and solidarity among the Muslim community.”
Elsewhere in his remarks, Hosseini described Israel as the main enemy of the Islamic world, and said the split among Muslims serves the interests of the Zionist regime of Israel.
Hosseini further described Iran as a role model for other Islamic countries in resisting against bullying powers, and said, “Over the past 35 years, the Islamic Republic has demonstrated that it can act as an inspiring role model in the Muslim world for resisting against the global arrogance…”
On Thursday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei elaborated on some of the realities in today’s world, saying that the start of fundamental developments in the world and region, whose signs can be seen in regions like Northern Africa, Asia and Europe, should be closely monitored.
Addressing a meeting with chairman and members of the Assembly of Experts, the Leader referred to the awakening of nations in the world, particularly the Islamic Awakening, as one of the realities of the world today.
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that despite the oppositions to the phrase “Islamic Awakening”, it has become clear now that this awakening has been entirely related to Islam.
“Although they (the enemies) have ostensibly smothered it (the tide of Islamic Awakening), the spirit of self-confidence and the feeling of Islamic identity will never be disappeared,” the Leader reiterated.
