Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) – Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi slammed Western countries' hostile stance on Iranian missile program earlier during his advanced Islamic Jurisprudence course in Qom's Grand Mosque on Wednesday, March 7 saying, "Unlike the common propaganda that the World is run by international human rights bodies including the United Nations (UN) and The Security Council, the realities of this world, however, are different as it is filled with injustice, hypocrisy and lies."
The Shia scholar added, "The US sends its military envoys to the other side of the world and it takes stances against some countries with this belief that other nations are not allowed to become powerful; They want the US to be the only power in the world, isn't it a manifestation of bullying other countries?
The revered source of emulation further rejected some Western countries' hostile stance on Iran's missile program; "The US is bullying Iran for its missile program, they say that Iranian politicians must come to negotiation table in order to curb their missile program. Isn’t it bullying and injustice?
"Why the present world is taking these threats and meddling into other countries' affairs for granted? Why no country is protesting this injustice?" the cleric remarked.
"We must not trust such a world; rather one must stand against these bullying policies, lies and double standards." Ayatollah Makarem concluded.
