Grand Ayatollah Sanei
Grand Ayatollah Sanei, senior religious figure
and a supporter of the Green Movement, in a meeting with a group of students
said: "Regretfully today some want Islam for their own personal lives, for their
ranks and powers and for their own agendas; and have used the religion for their
own benefit instead of serving their religion."
This great Marja added: "I warned a few years ago that the danger of lying is serious. But today this problem has reached a point some people have become such shameless and blatant liars that everyone recognizes their lies and deceptions, [these individuals] as long as they have the opportunity to lie, don't even care to tell the truth! These issues are very regretful. It is regretful for you and us, it is regretful for those how lost their loved ones as martyrs and sacrificed a lot for the system and the revolution. It is regretful but for those whom Islam and people's religion and happiness is not important this issue is no matter of concern."
He added: "Unfortunately today in this country we reached a point I the prominent figures and even the family of Imam Khomeini are being easily insulted and no one stops this!"
This senior religious figure in another section of his remarks advised the students and said: "Do as much as you can and spread the word that Islam is a very good religion. Promote the culture you believe in, the Islamic culture, the Islamic Republic and the constitution, the one that people voted for it not the one that some individuals have interpreted. Be cautions minimize the costs in this path but also the situation and conditions should not be such that the oppressors assume that oppression is an effective act and they were successful in silencing the oppressed."
At the end Grand Ayatollah Sanei by expressing deep sorrow regarding the arrests, imprisonments and heavy and unjust sentences for those who were detained after the election said: "While the rest of the world is achieving amazing progress, today we are trying to solve the problems by detaining academia, scholars, journalists, ordinary people and etc. and dismissing faculty members and students, shutting down newspapers, barring people from traveling abroad and insulting the children of Imam [Khomeini] and revolution! If these figures are against the revolution so that the prisons are filled with them, so who is the revolutionary?! Calling the figures of this country anti-revolutionary and detaining them for sure will not solve the problems, but will complicate the issues and the problems even more."
