Speaking to a group of seminarians of North Khorasan province, Hujjat al-Islam Abolqasem Ya’qoubi, the representative of the Supreme Leader in North Khorasan province, today students of the province, recited the Quranic verse, “Worship God and shun false deities…” [16:36] and said, “The Holy Quran stresses that the false deities or tyrants are impurities and should be avoided because within the tyrants there is no purifier.”
The Friday prayer leader of Bojnourd stated that avoiding tyranny is of two types and said that sometimes we don’t fall under the tyrants’ oppression and other times we don’t remove it from the path and we can’t grow and as such, the society doesn’t attain complete obedience to God.
In this regard, he said that currently, a “cultural tyrant” exists in our society and explained a cultural tyrant is someone who while appearing outwardly knowledgeable and wearing the clothes of a scholar says “we don’t accept the Islamic Revolution and the theory of Wilayat al-Faqih (Guardianship of the Jurisprudent).”
Hujjat al-Islam Ya’qoubi reiterated, “A cultural tyrant is our country is someone who while wearing the clothes of religion, doesn’t properly support the religion of Islam but rather, they support the imperial powers.”
He stressed, “Such individuals promote the ideology of British Shi’ism.”
According to Rasa, Hujjat al-Islam Ya’qoubi said that Mi6-sponsored clerics or British Shi’as are those who say “I want to study and become a scholar or source of emulation but don’t want anything to do with political or social issues and don’t want to discuss imperialism.”
His Eminence said that this method isn’t correct and is inconsistent with the message of the Holy Quran said: “Anti-imperialism is the meaning of ‘shun the false deities’ and isn’t a new issue, but these people need to come forth and answer for their statements.”
The head of the provincial council of the Seminaries of North Khorasan province said that when anti-imperialism is mentioned to some individuals, they say, “Don’t be sensitive, let the government do its job” while the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, recently said, “faith and anti-imperialism are the cause of our revolution and is also the reason it remains.”
