Ayatollah Jannati: Riot leaders nearing their final destiny

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 18, IRNA -- Tehran’s Substitute Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said the riot leaders have already destroyed themselves by what they did.

Addressing a large congregation gathered at Tehran University campus for the weekly prayers, he said the riot leaders have lost their faces with the Iranian people.

He further urged the judiciary to cut the contact of the riot leaders with the outside and impose home prison terms on them.

The Ayatollah also said the judiciary should restrict their communications and not to give them access to telephone and internet so that they could not contact people and send messages to them.

Pointing to the country’s scientific, technical and economic achievements, the Friday Prayers leader said the riot leaders announced a separate demonstration under the pretext of defending the Egyptian people while the country was progressing in these areas, the fifth development program was compiled and the targeted subsides plan was successfully carried out in the society.

Referring to the massive turnout of people in the February 11 rallies on the victory anniversary of the Islamic revolution which he believed demonstrated the support of the Iranian nation for the movement in Egypt, he said riot leaders tried to get a few people on the streets under the cover of supporting Egyptian movement resulting in their killing.

The cleric said the Iranian nation has proved in the past 32 years that despite all hardship, war and sanctions would abandon the late Imam Khomeini and the Islamic system.

He said Iran’s message to the western countries was that Islam and the Islamic revolution were not to be suppressed.

Ayatollah Jannati said the enemies were scared that other world nations could look at Iran’s Islamic Revolution as a pattern.
