The Iranian Sunni leader expressed his gladness at election of a Sunni young as chairman of Iran Boxing Federation and termed such appointments in favor of the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid quoted a part of his speech of Friday 29th Dec. 2017 where he said: “It is a happy news that Mr. Hussein Thouri, the general director of Sport & Youth Bureau in Sistan-Baluchistan, has been elected as chairman of Iran Boxing Federation.”
He congratulated the Sunni Baloch chairman of Iran Boxing Federation who was present in the gathering of worshipers for the Friday prayers. Shaikh Abdol-Hamid expressed his good wishes for Mr. Thouri to achieve honors for the country in this field.
The most influential Iranian Sunni leader addressed the Sunni officials who have been appointed on different official positions and said: “It is my message to all Sunni officials who have got official posts to work honestly and perfectly avoiding from illegal acts. Then they can pave the way for engagements of other elites and capable Sunnis in official posts.”
He also advised the Iranian officials to utilize capabilities of the Sunni elites and youth more than past in province level and also national positions. “If you give Sunnis opportunities and trust them, be sure they will work better than others,” Mawlana Abdol-Hamid added more.
Khateeb of Sunnis urged on ‘creating balance’ in appointments in Sistan-Baluchistan and said: “There should be a balance in appointments and distribution of positions between Shia and Sunni communities. They are two brothers who should enjoy an equal view; the divine satisfaction and interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran demand it.
“Unity, which is among the most important strategies of Iran, necessitates equality among all Iranians. The nation should not be divided into different ethnic and religious sects, rather there should a balance among them,” Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said.
