Leader of Ummah Imam Khamenei: Defending oppressed people Islamic duty
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has said that united voices in support of oppressed people of Palestine would be heard on Quds Day with grace of God.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution received on Wednesday evening Judiciary Head Ayatollah Amoli Larijani and high-ranking officials of the Judiciary on the occasion of anniversary of martyrdom of former Judiciary Head Ayatollah Beheshti who was assassinated in a terror blast along with 72 other politicians in 1981.
Hailing Ayatollah Amoli Larijani as a significant scholar, the Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the role of Judiciary branch of power in supervising implementation of laws and prevention of crimes. “Sensitivity of the Judiciary has made it a target for attacks and propaganda against it. Propaganda of foreign media and attacks on Judiciary are increased in current term which is due to Revolutionary, blatant and value-based positions of head and officials of the power branch,” emphasized he.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei urged the judicial power branch to be more active in pursuing legal issues in global scale. “Pursuing violated rights of Iranian nation because of sanctions must be on your agenda,” he said and pointed to US court verdict to encroach Iranian assets over baseless excuses. “Violation of rights of Iranian nation through imposing sanctions is a reality which must be pursued legally on global scale.”
‘Pursuing rights of thousands of terror victims in Iran,’ ‘filing lawsuits against states who overtly and covertly support assassins of these victims’ and ‘legal defense for oppressed Muslim figures all around the world’ were among other key points Leader urged Judiciary to follow up on its agenda.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei also called on the officials to revive Islamic human rights on global scale; “the human rights West talks about is based on false foundations and it is necessary to introduce to world public opinion and global judicial circles, and pursue the Islamic human rights which is based on firm and rational foundations.”
“That it is officially announced that the United Nations has turned blind eye on ongoing crimes and killing of children in Yemen by some certain countries in return for money is a shame and disgrace for humanity. This scandal is violation of true human rights and must be worked on legally and judicially on global scale.”
Pointing to upcoming Friday as International Quds Day, Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei dubbed it a religious duty to defend the oppressed everywhere in the world and expressed hope that massive demonstrations will be held across Iran and the whole world of Islam in support of people in Palestine.
