Ahlulbayt News Agency: The ceremony honoring religious scholars and luminaries of Iran’s Sunni community, organized by the Council for Planning of Sunni Religious Schools, commenced with speeches highlighting the significance of education, knowledge, and unity.

Molla Mahmoud, a prominent scholar from the West of Iran, expressed joy at the mercy-inspiring ceremonies held during auspicious occasions like the birthdays of Lady Masoumeh and Imam Reza. He emphasized the importance of education in countering plots and seditions.

Hojjat-ol-Islam Mostafa Rostami, Head of the Leader’s Representative Office in Universities, underscored the paramount importance of knowledge, stating that scholars are successors of prophets and have a duty to speak out against oppression. He praised the scientific development achieved after the Islamic Revolution, contrasting it with the state of education before the revolution.

Mowlavi Narui, chairman of Khatam-ol-Anbiya specialized center in Sistan-Baluchestan province, stressed the need for strengthening research programs and interdisciplinary education to encourage scholars and seminary students.

Mamusta Abdul-Salam Emami, Sunni advisor in the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, highlighted the role of Sunni and Shia scholars in promoting unity and defending the oppressed, particularly in Palestine. He criticized the silence of the international community towards the plight of Palestinians and called for practical action from the Islamic world.

Narui echoed Emami’s sentiments, condemning the asymmetric war against Palestine and urging practical measures to defend Gaza. He lamented the lack of substantial action from neighboring countries, contrasting it with the support offered to Ukraine by Western nations.

Emami concluded by emphasizing the urgency for the Islamic world to address the crises in Ukraine and Gaza, criticizing the disparity in response between Western countries and Islamic nations. He called for tangible support for Gaza, highlighting the inadequacy of symbolic gestures in the face of ongoing oppression.
