Grand Ayatollah Safi Golpaygani sent a message to the international conference on “Ahl-al-Bayt’s Doctrine regarding the issue of radicalism and terrorism” in Norway stating: “Terrorist attacks are a manifestation of the most brutal aspects of violence, ignorance, corruption and deterioration of a group of people who know nothing about the true Islam.”
According to Hawzah, the grand jurist highlighted, “Terrorist attacks including the vast number of suicide bombings which are increasing in the world, or murder of the innocent men, women and kids being carried out by a group of terrorists who claim to be Muslims are indeed posing a major threat to the face of true Islam, such incidents should not be overlooked or considered trivial since they are causing the increase of Islamophobia and anti-Islam movements in the world.”
He went on, “Terrorist attacks are a manifestation of the most brutal aspects of violence, ignorance, moral corruption and deterioration of a group of people who know nothing about true Islam. This should not be overlooked since they are propagating their own ugly face and beliefs as Islamic. The real face of Islam which is indeed the religion of peace and God’s blessing is currently being depicted as a corrupted, heartless, violent religion in the world. The terrorists claim Quran is the foundation of their cruel actions,”
“We as followers of Ahl-al-Bayt’s (pbut) doctrine vigorously condemn all terrorist attacks which in fact cause a great threat to the whole world including Muslims,” he added.
