The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei called on the worldwide Muslim community to express their resentment towards the enemies of the great prophet of Islam (PBUH) during this year’s Hajj pilgrimage.
“The beautiful and great manifestation of unity among the Islamic Ummah (which is) due to the holy existence of the last prophet (PBUH), and the deep hatred and wrath of Muslims towards the arrogance front should be displayed in Hajj which is the center of congregation of all Muslims from across the world,” The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said, addressing the Iranian Hajj officials in Tehran on Monday, adding, “This is the real meaning of disavowal of pagans.”
Condemning the recent insults of the western media and movies to Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the silence of the western officials, he said, “The position adopted by the western politicians about the big insult wasn’t different from an inimical position.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei underscored that the sacrilegious moves and the positions of the leaders of the arrogance front revealed their real face and the main pivot of confrontation between the truth and the falsehood and it was disclosed that the arrogant powers are enemies to the very essence of Islam and the holy prophet of Islam.
His remarks came days after French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). The publication of the offensive cartoons came amid widespread outrage over a US-made film that insulted the prophet of Islam.
In relevant remarks last week, The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei also questioned the western countries’ claims about their respect for the freedom of expression and freedom of speech, asking why they allow someone to insult Islam, but no one can ask anything about the so-called Holocaust in their societies.
Addressing an Army cadet graduation ceremony at Imam Khomeini Naval Academy in the northern city of Noshahr, The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei referred to the recent American-made film which insults the Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH), and stressed, “We do not insist on proving that certain people or government officials were involved in this crime, but the behavior and methods of the leaders of the arrogant powers, American politicians and certain European countries have caused people of the world to point the finger of blame at them. They should prove that they were not an accomplice in this great crime and they cannot do so by simply denying their involvement. They should prove their innocence with actions. They should prevent such transgressions.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the enemies of Islam are frustrated in the face of the Iranian nation and the wave of Islamic Awakening, and added, “The great wave of Islamic Awakening is what causes them to do such idiotic things.”
