23 December 2015 20:51


Grand Ayatollah Mohsen Araki noted the role of media in feeding extremist movements in the recent years criticizing AL Jazeera and BBC in expansion of Takfir (excommunication) movement across the globe.
Grand Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, in an interview with Taqrib News Agency (TNA) related on the role of media in projection of the crimes committed by Takfiri groups and also tarnishing the image of Islam in the world.

He slammed Al Jazeera, BBC and Al Arabia in expansion of Takfir (excommunication) noting,” BBC is stressing to introduce Daesh as an Islamic state and show the war in Syria and Iraq as a Shia Sunni conflict.”

He added,” If someone is arrested over a wrongdoing in Iran, BBC stresses to introduce the person as a Sunni Muslim and if an issue breaks up in an Islamic country then it is highlighted as a Shia Sunni conflict, a strategy which is quite known to all of us.”

Secretary General of the world Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought demanded committed domestic Iranian and international media to show and criticize the strategy by some western media.

The cleric hailed the role of Iranian and unifying media and announced the efforts by media which are active in counter-Takfir movement and spare no effort for boosting unity will be appreciated.

Grand Ayatollah Araki demanded for investigation into the efforts of dispersing media and appreciation for those media active in confrontation with extremist and Takfiri moves.

Top religious figure announced the future programs by the world forum for introduction and appreciation of the media active in boosting Islamic unity.
