Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has said that enemies of Muslim nations have no hostility towards a “secular” version of Islam, based on which religion has no role in sociopolitical affairs.

In a Sunday meeting with a group of clerics and prayer leaders in Tehran on the occasion of World Mosque Day, the Supreme Leader said a “secular Islam,” which is restricted to individual or collective worship, is not the subject of hostility for domineering powers.

What bullying powers are opposed to is a “powerful Islam” which lays the foundations for a sociopolitical system and guides nations towards prosperity, Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei added.

Touching upon the international occasion, the Leader said Iran insistently demanded that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation designate August 21 as World Mosque Day in an effort to draw attention to Israel’s burning of the al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969.

On this day 47 year ago, Aqsa Mosque was set on fire by an Australian settler in coordination with Israeli officials and military forces. The fire gutted the southeastern wing of the mosque.
