Rouhani: Ahl al-Bayt shrines, redline in Iran

Iran does not tolerate any aggression against Ahl al-Bayt shrines, President Hassan Rouhani said Saturday.

Addressing the third national conference on martyrs, Rouhani said Ahl al-Bayt is among Iran’s redlines.

‘There is no question of Iraq, Syria or other countries, Iran will stand against terrorists if they want to cause any aggression against Ahl al-Bayt shrines,’ stressed the President.

Ahl al-Bayt are the family members of great Prophet Mohammad.

Speaking to the families of the martyrs in the conference, Rouhani said ‘Your youth indicated that they will defend Iran, Islamic land and Ahl al-Bayt shrines wherever they are.

‘We are seeking Islamic unity and Islamic Iran,’ he said adding ‘…we will bow down to any one who does some service for Iran and our national power.’

Talking about the February 26 elections in Iran, President Rouhani appreciated the nation for attending the elections to preserve the country’s dignity.
