Prominent Lawmaker Vahid Ahmadi underlined Tehran’s firm stance on its inalienable nuclear rights, stressing that Iran has always pursued a transparent policy in its talks with the six major world powers (the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany).
“Iran has always been transparent in its nuclear activities and the country has always regarded Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s fatwa in this regard as its most important guideline and agenda,” Ahmadi said in a meeting with Head of the Czech Parliament’s Foreign Relations, Defense and Security Committee in Prague on Saturday.
Ahmadi underlined that the Iranian nation is entitled to the acquisition of the civilian nuclear technology as a natural right and it will never give up this right.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Ayatollah Khamenei has on many occasions said the Islamic Republic considers the pursuit and possession of nuclear weapons “a grave sin” from every logical, religious and theoretical standpoint. On April 17, 2010 Ayatollah Khamenei issued a fatwa declaring that the production, stockpiling, and use of nuclear weapons are all haram (religiously banned).
“Iran is not after a nuclear bomb. Why would Iran want a nuclear bomb? Moreover, when an atomic bomb is detonated, it does not just kill enemies. Rather, it kills innocent people as well, and this goes against Islamic beliefs and the principles of the Islamic Republic of Iran. An atomic bomb does not discriminate between good and bad people, and it is not something that the Islamic Republic would use. The Islamic Republic is relying on something that is not affected by bombs, foreign invasions and other such things. Such things only strengthen what the Islamic republic is relying on. The Islamic republic is relying on the people,” a part of the fatwa said.
Analysts believe that the fatwa of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution can well serve as a beacon of light for Washington in order to find its way out of darkness and ignorance.
