Ayatollah Movahhedi Kermani led this week’s rituals of Tehran
Friday Prayers (on November 03) at the temporary venue of the event, at the
campus of University of Tehran.
Referring to the National Day against Global Arrogance, the
cleric said fight against aggression, resistance in the face of enemies and US
plots and attempts to thwart conspiracies were no merely political but also
He noted that all prophets have been assigned to carry out
two missions of inviting people to monotheism and preventing them from

"Silence and disregard in the face of arrogance would spread
corruption,” highlighted the official explaining "those who refuse to fight
against tyranny are involved in the corruption which will follow.”
Movahhedi Kermani said one could not be optimistic about Europe
as it accompanies the US which is a sign of betrayal. "European countries who

the official on the eve of the national Student Day which falls on November 4
At the end of his remarks, the Friday cleric urged teachers,
professors and universities to offer best services to students, including those
coming from poverty-stricken families. He also appreciated valuable efforts of
Law Enforcement Force of the Islamic Republic of Iran in ensuring security
inside the country at all times.
