Hawzah News Agency (Semnan, Iran) – Hujjat al-Islam Sayed Mofid Hussaini Kouhsari director of Hawzah News paid a visit to the office of the news agency branch in the Iranian city of Semnan. During his visit Hujjat al-Islam Hussaini Kouhsari expressed gratitude for the current and upcoming activities of the Semnan office and made some remarks on the importance of the media.
Director of Hawzah News asserted, “First, all seminary scholars and students and then all the revolutionary people should realize the importance of the media and the cyberspace and that requires serious efforts and determination.”
Head of Iranian Islamic Seminary's Office for International Relations said, “Sometimes we have talented forces, but they are not aware of the importance of media and online opportunities so they do not give it a try and they use their talents in other areas.” He added, “Other areas may also be important, but as media, we must try to build this culture.”
Stating that the audience of the seminary media is not only seminary people and we are not only supposed to report for or about clerics, Hujjat al-Islam Hussaini Kouhsari said, “We should be among people and the whole community and try to be present in the middle of their social activities.” He added, “And gradually we need to try to become the pivot of religious media.”
