Iran’s Deputy Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Rayeesi said major world powers and their regional allies are supporting and helping to the spread of Takfiri currents in the Middle East.
“The triangle of UK, Israel and the US as well as Saudi Arabia are spreading the Takfiri currents in the region,” Rayeesi said.
He further cautioned against the repercussions of such policies, warning that Takfiri terrorism could destabilize the region.
Iranian officials have repeatedly warned those states that are supporting Salafi and Takifiri terrorists in the region that their policy would backfire and the same groups would eventually target them as well.
“Takfiri groups are used as a tool by enemies of Islam and they seem to lack a true understanding of Islam,” Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in a meeting with Syrian Grand Mufti Sheikh Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun in Tehran.
He highlighted the role of clerics in reinforcing the resistance of the Syrian nation as well as fostering unity in the Arab country, and warned against plots by enemies to incite religious and sectarian rifts among Muslims.
Boroujerdi also praised the resistance of the Syrian people against the foreign-sponsored crisis in the country.
Also last month, senior military aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi warned that Takfiri terrorists are killing Muslims for the sake of Israel’s interests in the region.
“Takfiri groups are advancing Israel’s interests in the Middle-East through violence and terrorism,” Major General Rahim Safavi said.
“Through the massacre of innocent people in countries like Syria, Iraq and Bahrain, Takfiri groups are pushing the situation in the region in favor of the Zionist regime (of Israel),” he said.
