Mousavi's Message of Condolence for Passing of Grand Ayatollah Montazeri
Mir Hossein Mousavi in a message to Ahmad Montazeri, son of late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri, offered his deepest condolences for the passing of this great scholar.
The text of this message is as follows.
In the name of God
Dear friend Ahmad Montazeri
With respect, I express my condolences to you and your family for the passing of the great combatant scholar, late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and I pray to almighty God for the heightening of his stature and blessing and mercy on his soul in the other world. This is an immense disaster that the rest of religious scholars must try to compensate for it. The very presence of figures like Grand Ayatollah Montazeri was a proof for the young generation of this country, convincing them to have a deeper insight into their needs by taking advantage of the support of the informed scholars. I wish now that Grand Ayatollah Montazeri has departed from among us, other scholars fulfill this undeniable need and don't allow temptations stop them from fulfilling the duties they have towards Islam and today's and tomorrow's generations.
Mir Hossein Mousavi
