The reaction of one of the leaders of the Sunni Muslims to eliminate discrimination against this religious minority.
Moulavi Abdul Hameed Ismail Zahi, the Friday prayer leader of Sunnis of Zahedan and the leaders of Sunni Muslims in Iran, said that if the Hassan Rouhani government does not meet the expectations of eliminating the discrimination against this religious minority, it can support the principals in the upcoming elections.
Mawlawi Abdul Hameed told the Shahrvand newspaper that during the visit of Abraham Reesee, Astan Quds and the presidential candidate to the province of Sistan and Baluchistan, meetings between the two have been conducted, and the principals have said that “you experienced this reformist period and for you Do not do anything. This time, experience the principals and see what they do for you. “
Maulavi Abdul Hameed said that “Sunni people are not affiliated with any current affairs in the country. First, we think about who benefits the whole country, and secondly, who is close to those of the sunnis people who are discriminated and deprived. “
Mawlawi Abdul Hameed has said “no excuse is no longer acceptable” with the recent “decree” of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
He refers to the reaction of Ayatollah Khamenei who was publicly released last week.
In response to the letter of Maulavi Abdul Hameed, the Iranian leader said that “all the components of the Islamic Republic of Iran are required, based on religious teachings and the constitution, to have no discrimination or inequality between any ethnic, religious or religious background. “
At that time, Maulavi Abdul Hamid welcomed the content of the letter and said that the decree of Ayatollah Khamenei “clarified the religious and legal duty of all officials in the army and state and ended up conveying the oath to everyone.”
“It was expected that the Sunni people would have appeared in the cabinet of Hassan Rouhani, which did not happen, but it is hoped to be used in the assistant ministers, governors and Sunni ambassadors,” said Mawlawi Abdul Hamid.
