The outstanding Sunni scholar, Shaikh Abdol-Hameed Ismaeelzahi, put ongoing aggression of Zionist regime of Israel on Gaza strip an effort to pervert pubic attention from the positive transitions in the Middle East.
Khateeb of Ahl-us-Sunnah in Zahedan had made it clear that Israel is afraid of two major issues; independence of Palestine and its appearance as a recognized state in the world map. Secondly, Zionist terrorists strive to mislead people’s opinion from instructive changes of the Middle East.
“Zionist rulers and think-tanks are sinister; they have launched their recent attacks on a trivial pretext to get some ominous goals. Wily Israelis want to warn American masses and administration that an independent Palestine would threaten the existence of Israel. They name their massive and barbaric bombardment ‘defense of Israeli people’. We strongly decry such onslaughts,” he added more.
Talking to tens of thousands in the Grand Makki Masjid, Shaikh Abdol-Hameed said Israel struggles to divert public opinion from the main crises of the Middle East. All nations across the globe reached to this idea that violence should be uprooted; regretfully some powers like the U.S, European powers and Russia promote violence directly or indirectly. They could not stop Israel from the violation of human rights and systematic terrorism.
Member of the IUMS condemned international community’s inefficiency over the series of terror movements of Israel in the region. He entitled Israel an international terrorist who gets the benefits of super powers’ incompetence.
Culprits behind Sattar Baheshti’s death must be tried
In another part of his speech, the leading scholar expressed his deep sorrow over the death of “Sattar Baheshti”, a young blogger and labor, who was killed after detention by Iranian security forces apparently during torture in jail.
He further said, “There is no any person who learnt about the death of Mr. Baheshti without getting grief. It is very shameful for us to observe such events in the country; we claim having of thousands-year-long civilization and rich culture!”
The tragedy took place in the capital of Iran where the news was obtained by media. It followed by reaction of people and some authorities. But unfortunately we witnessed many similar cases in other cities of the country; they remained secret and victims’ family members were afraid to disclose the incidents! What is the answer of culprits behind such cruel acts before Exalted Allah?
Mawlana Abdol-Hameed pointed more, “When an obedient official shows good performance, he gets awards and people feel proud. In the same way, whenever any statesman carries out a bad deed, he should be tried as it defames the entire country. Regrettably, the second type of authorities is a lot in Iran. It is better to lose guilty officials instead of killing justice, defaming regime and Islam. If the administration punished the culprits of “Kahrizak” tragedy, we would not have seen such kinds of murder cases.”
The pertinent authorities have a great responsibility; they must never adopt unjust actions. Islamic Shari’ah, the national constitution and law forbid torture of detainees for getting confession; if any prisoner confesses something under force and torture, it is illegal and judges can not try anyone on the strength of such confessions. Islam urges on dignity of mankind and human rights. Even while punishing criminals the honor of human beings should be realized. We advise the rulers and nation to take care of law and Islamic regulations.
At the end of his sermon, Shaikh stated his condolences over the demise of late Mawlana Abdol-Wahed Moradzahi, rector of Dar-ul-Hoda seminary of Ismaeelabad Khash. He prayed for his full forgiveness and patience of his family to Allah Almighty.
