The office of the Friday Imam of Zahedan denied the false report of Fars News Agency, which claimed that the National Security Agency of the US had sent communication equipment including Starlink to this office.
The office considered such propaganda in the direction of “abreaction, putting pressures, trying to put down unsolved demands and to make files against the staff of Darululoom Zahedan”.
The text of the statement is as follows:
Fars News Agency once again resorted to slander and lies by posting fake news and baseless claim that ‘the US National Security Agency sent two packs of Starlink equipment to the office of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid’.
Unfortunately, some state organs and news agencies do not adhere to any ethic principles. They resort to all kinds of illicit tricks to silence the voice of people who have been calling for justice.
The news of ‘tracing and seizing two packs of Starlink communication tools on the way to Mawlavi Abdol-Hamid’s office’ shows a sinister scenario against Shaikh Abdol-Hamid. They want to increase pressures on him, and to file cases against the teachers and staff of Darululoom Zahedan, to silence the voice of justice and well-wishers. Realistic and fair people know well that Mawlana Abdol-Hamid and other sympathetic scholars and people are not affiliated to any foreign government. They only raise the legitimate demands of the people.
Fars News Agency and other like-minded (state-run) media have been posting fake news against Shaikh Abdol-Hamid. Instead of complaining about these media to the relevant authorities, we take our complaint to Allah Almighty. May Allah judge between the right and the falsehood, and punish the liar for his actions.
