Talking to tens of thousands in the biggest Sunni grand mosque on Friday, 2nd Nov. 2012, Shaikh Abdol-Hameed Ismaeelzahi criticized fanatic elements inside some official departments who have been creating obstacles for the activists of Tablighi Jama’at in Iran.
Preachers of Tabligh have no any political agenda. The entire world is interested in this movement. They work honestly without showing tendency to any political wing. They avoid disputable subjects urging on Muslims to be unanimous. Tablighi workers do not harm any one. They advise Muslims to enhance their faith, offer prayers, pay Zakah and adopt Sunnah of Holy Prophet, Mawlana Abdol-Hameed underlined in the Grand Makki Masjid while giving Friday sermon.
He pointed more saying it is obviously fanaticism to ban activities of Tablighi Jama’at or restrict them. The national constitution emphasizes on the religious freedom of Sunni Muslims. No one can violate these Articles of the constitution imposing his personal laws on Sunnis in Iran.
When a person belonging to any community, for instance a culprit disguises in the shape of a student or Tablighi activist, the entire community should not be targeted and restricted. Tablighi workers particularly have organized some good plans to halt the way of opportunist people. They must be encouraged to work freely in an Islamic state, Khateeb of Sunnis concluded his points.
It is noteworthy the activists of Tablighi Jama’at can not travel freely to other towns and provinces but to some particular cities and villages of their own hometown. Besides, they have been facing problems at security check points on high ways.
