Grand Ayatollah Saanei, senior religious figure and a supporter of Green Movement, in a meeting with a group of journalists said: "One of the issues that the media should pay attention to is the topic of lying and its transformation to a culture which unfortunately has deepened its roots in our society these days and in case of some individuals it is even not only a culture but as become part of their nature and telling the truth does not have any meaning for them anymore."
Grand Ayatollah Saanei stressed: "Fighting with oppression and oppressor must be the main goal and intention in political and social activities; and nationality and ethnicities, religions and different views should not influence us in acquitting an oppressor and condemning an oppressed."
Grand Ayatollah Saanei added: "One of the issues that you should raise awareness about is that the pain of the people should be the same as what the society wants and also should be the same as what the authorities say, because if the pain of the people is different from what the authorities say this would bring misery for the nation."
At the end Grand Ayatollah Saanei by pointing out to the economical crisis and the hardships people suffer in their everyday lives as well as the responsibility of the media in reflecting the pains of the society said: " Those who should know the problems already know them and one cannot advise the others, but regardless the media can take effective and positive steps in raising the awareness among the society and the people, but this path should be taken in such a way that if one ends up paying prices for it, it would be for great and valuable steps."
