A senior Shia Iranian cleric has ruled out a rift among the country’s officials, saying the country will never reach a dead end while it is under the Rule of the Just Jurisprudent. Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati described many of the recent events as the actions of the group of deviators ahead of the upcoming elections this year.
“The distribution and receiving of certain sums by this group [of deviators] has not gone unnoticed by the people and the people will deal with them if necessary,” Fars News Agency quoted the senior cleric as saying.
Recalling bitter memories through the three-decade history of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Jannati said, “Such incidents will happen and they are nothing new, because we have seen them happen since the beginning of the Revolution; therefore, such events should not surprise or worry us.”
â€œThese events and bitter [situations] have ultimately resulted in good and have strengthened the Islamic Republic in the Rule of the Just Jurisprudent,â€ he added.
Ayatollah Jannati advised the enemies to remember that Iranians have pledged their allegiance to the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini, and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.Back to top button
â€œTherefore, whomever treads this path (follows the Just Jurisprudent) the people will give their lives for him and if they deviate the people will withdraw their support.â€
Ayatollah Jannati expounded on the responsibilities of the Just Jurisprudent and said all officials have their specified positions and responsibilities but the Jurisprudent steps in wherever he knows that the Revolution’s interests are at stake.
