Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned against enemy plots aimed at spreading Islamophobia.
“Global ill-wishers and bullying powers are trying to use art, politics, militarism and all [other] means to keep the voice of pure Islam from being heard, but the voice has been heard, and an indication of that is hegemonic powers’ growing fear,” said the leader at a commencement ceremony at Imam Ali Military Academy on Monday in Tehran.
The leader said the enemies promote Islamophobia by creating armed groups that massacre civilians in the name of Islam.
Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that today, global tyrants are deeply worried about Islam’s power and that is why they are doing all in their power to spread Islamophobia across the world.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that Islam conveys the message of welfare, dignity, honor and peace for humanity but that the “ill-wishers” are plotting to prevent Islam’s real message from reaching other nations.
The Leader’s comments come as ISIL militants, who are currently wreaking havoc on Iraq and Syria, have been committing heinous crimes in the areas they have taken, including the mass execution of civilians as well as army troops and officers.
