Saudi monarch puppet of US, UK: Iran Top cleric
Ayatollah Kazem Seddighi led this week’s Friday Prayers of Tehran lashing at Saudi House for Mina tragedy and war on Yemen.
The weekly ritual of Tehran Friday Prayers, on October 9, was led by Ayatollah Kazem Seddighi who, along with a host of other issues, touched upon the massacre of civilian Yemenis by Saudi-led air-strikes and the mismanagement of Hajj rituals by the monarchy of the KSA in his second sermon.
Referring to Mina tragedy of September 24, during which thousands of pilgrims suffocated in the stampede caused by blockade of the main road, the Grand Ayatollah called the incident a pain in heart never to be relieved.
“Al-Saud have demonstrated their ineptitude over and over in the past but this disaster was the worst among all of them,” Seddighi stressed.
Further he questioned Saudi manipulation of the death toll and called it another malicious behavior of KSA in the event.
How it is possible to have such an accident with around 5000 victims, Ayatollah Seddighi enquired highlighting that the causers deserve the worst punishment.
The senior cleric pointed to the history of the monarchy of the KSA who were appointed by the colonizers of the region, especially the UK, and lamented that Saudis are alike Zionists puppeteers of the UK and the USA.
