Member of the Supreme Council of the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought, Molavi Eshaq Madani in an exclusive interview with Taqrib News Agency (TNA) condemned ISIL recent move in destroying the ancient artifacts at a museum in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
The vandalism purportedly took place at the Ninawa museum, which puts on exhibit Assyrian artifacts dating back to the 9th century BC. The Takfiri terrorists have already razed to the ground a number of mosques in Syria and Iraq, many of them belonging to the early years of the Islamic civilization. The terrorists have also destroyed tombs belonging to revered Shia and Sunni figures.
In this regard, Molavi Eshaq Madani stressed, “All the world along with Muslims and Non-Muslim leaders in different areas of politics and religions slammed such malignant move.”
“They [Takfiri groups] have some interpretation from Quran verses and narrations,” said the cleric stating Takfiri groups held such misinterpretation as a criteria for themselves and based on them make their moves.
“Given that, standing against such takes and viewpoints which have been internalized in these group would be very difficult,” said the Member of the Supreme Council of the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought.
“In point of fact, what they are doing reflects their wrong conception of religious teachings,” underlined the religious cleric adding these extremist groups leveled criticism at any one who has different standpoint and describe other Muslims as deviated and infidels.
Elsewhere in his remark, Molavi Eshaq Madani beckoned to the activities and programs forwarded by the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought. The seasoned cleric stressed that the World Forum would try its utmost to shuns spreading deviation and distortion in World of Islam.
In his line, Muslims should be steered clear of concepts and measures leading to disunit. And in this regard the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought spares no effort to take effective steps in this area.
To religious clerics, enemies should be impeded by Muslims in advancing their willful objectives and it is shouldered by Muslims to avert plagued situation in the World of Islam as a result . In doing so, according to Molavi Eshaq Madani such objective and aim cannot be happened unless through up-keeping unity and solidarity.
