Iran enjoys highest security in the world: Sunni cleric

Sanandaj, Kordestan pro., Aug 8, IRNA – A Sunni member of Assembly of Experts in this western province said the Islamic Republic of Iran is the safest country in the region thanks to its great religious leaders.

Speaking in a local gathering, the representative of Kurdestan people at Assembly of Experts Mamosta Faegh Rostami stressed that the escalation of massacres and crimes in the world stem from lack of faith and spirituality.

Under the Iranian constitution, Christians, Jews, and Zoroastrians are recognized as religious minorities with equal rights and reserved seats at the parliament.

The parliament also has Sunni members from areas with strong ethnic minorities such as Kurdestan and Baluchestan.
