‘For­bid­ding wrong should be di­rected to­ward plun­der­ers’

Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN – In­terim Fri­day Prayer preacher of Tehran Ay­a­tol­lah Kazem Sediqqi says that en­join­ing good and for­bid­ding wrong should be pri­mar­ily di­rected to­ward “po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic rough­necks” who are plun­der­ing and loot­ing the coun­try.

Ad­dress­ing wor­ship­pers in Tehran on Fri­day, Ay­a­tol­lah Sed­diqi said there’s no use in con­fronting the weak. “Peo­ple have seen this and they now think en­join­ing good and for­bid­ding wrong is a joke,” he said, Fars re­ported.

“You should start from the top and fol­low the path of Imam Hus­sain (AS),” he told au­thor­i­ties. “Imam Hus­sain (AS) did not con­front the peo­ple of Kufa, rather, he con­fronted Yazid.”
