Ayatollah Seddighi who led this week’s Tehran Friday Prayers voiced gratitude for the huge show-off on the rally of Feb. 11.
You boasted a big festival on Thursday, the 37th edition of the festival of the Islamic Revolution, said Ayatollah Kazem Seddighi on Friday, addressing the worshippers who convened at Tehran’s Grand Musalla to hold the weekly ritual of Friday prayers.
The huge attended rally of February 11 was to safeguard the heritage of those martyred for this cause, to secure the flag of authority, to say no to the big Satan (the US), and to those followers of American backed policies like the ISIL and its followers, highlighted the senior cleric.
The cleric touched upon a host of topics including the forthcoming elections of Iran’s Parliament and Assembly of Experts which are scheduled to be held simultaneously on the Friday fortnight.
He voiced hope that the turn-on on the day of the coming election would be as huge as the rally on February 11 to be a thorn in the eye of the enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Talking about the ethics of the election, the Grand Ayatollah advised the candidates not to orchestrate smear campaigns against each other and try to run a fair competition.
