The most outstanding Iranian Sunni scholar pointed out to anxieties and obstacles on the way of fuel-loaders in Sistan-Balochistan province and asked members of the parliament and provincial authorities to find out any solution for this problem.
Talking to tens of thousands worshipers in Zahedan on May 31, 2019 in the last Friday of Ramadan, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said: “Fuel-loaders are worried about their work. I would like to ask the MPs to sit with the provincial authorities and resolve the issue “loading fuel” logically; it is one of the problems of the province.”
“Transferring fuel is not a job, but due to the dilemma of unemployment and absence of factories and farming for employing people in the province, it is against discretion and security to bar people from other jobs and winning bread. In this critical economic situation, authorities should tolerate and compromise with less-dangerous jobs,” he underlined.
The most influential Iranian Sunni scholar said: “[Instead of common people] those elements who smuggle millions of liters of fuel should be encountered not those who just sell and buy some gallons of fuel to win a bread. It is the right of local jobless people who live around the borders.”
Calling on officials to find out a solution to this dilemma, he asked the fuel-loaders to respect traffic regulations. He also asked security forces to avoid from opening fire on fuel-loaders and common people.
Insulters of Sahabah are not on path of Ahl-e-Bait
In another part of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid reacted to the insult of a Shia Zakir to the sanctities of Sunnis and said: “Recently a person who considers himself a panegyrist of Ahl-e-Bait has insulted Sayyidah Ayishah and the guided caliphs, while insulting is not authorized in any religion and sect.”
“Such people should not be named “eulogist of Ahl-e-Bait, because Ahl-e-Bait used to respect all Sahabah and the clean wives of the prophet, peace be upon him. Ahl-e-Bait behaved in a way that followers of all sects consider them their leaders and holy persons. Those who insult Sahabah on the pretext of defending Ahl-e-Bait, of course they are not on the path of Ahl-e-Bait,” he added more.
Maulana Abdol-Hamid welcomed the steps taken by the state TV (IRIB) and judiciary against the insulter and officials in the channel where the incident took place. He called these steps “very good and less-exampled” taken by the pertinent authorities.
“I’d like thank the IRIB and judiciary on the behalf of the Sunni community as they showed strong reaction. Sunnis hope that insulters of sects’ holy objects should be tried as they commit crimes,” he further said.
Khateeb of Sunnis said: “Islam does not allow anyone to insult holy objects of other religions and sects. All prophets have been mentioned in the Qur’an with respect and they have been applauded.”
“I announce that insulting in any way to holy objects of Shias is illegal and Haram. The supreme leader also declared insulting of the clean wives, especially Omm-ul-Momenin and the guided caliphs Haram,” Maulana Abdol-Hamid emphasized.
At the end of this part of his speech, he said: “The judiciary should not release this insulter man and it should issue indictment and try the man and punish him in order to make him a lesson for other insulters.”
EU and world powers force Israel to negotiation with Palestinians
Shaikh-ul-Islam Maulana Abdol-Hamid alluded to the Quds Day and said: “The Quds Day is a historical day which has been approved to support the Palestinian nation. Supporting and defending oppressed people, including Muslims and non-Muslims, is a good job in any part of the world.”
“Palestine has been occupied by the Zionist regime and Palestinians have been striving for decades to get freedom and independence as well they make efforts to obtain their due rights. The occupying regime is not ready to sit around the table of negotiation and submit before the truth and justice,” he added more.
Friday imam of Sunnis said: “Resolving the crisis of Palestine is the key for resolving other crises and maintaining peace in the world. All world powers, including the EU, Russia and the US should work hard to compel Israel for negotiation with Palestinians.”
“Terrorism is a bad phenomenon; for uprooting it, instead of emotions, discretion should be applied. Resolving the issue of Palestine and then other countries such as Yemen and Syria and accepting dialogue are the best solutions,” he underlined.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid conclude his points by saying: “Establishing ambient governments which ensure interests of all religions, Islamic sects and ethnic communities with respecting rights of minorities is the best method to bring peace in Muslim countries. I hope world powers will meditate on these issues.”
