Press Shia – Hujjat al-Islam ‎ Kaviani emphasized that for many years, the enemies have targeted ‎Iran’s social capital and said, “The enemies is seeking to reduce and eventually eliminate ‎Iran’s social capital by creating a psychological and economic war.”‎

Press Shia – In an exclusive interview with‏ ‏Press Shia News Agency‏ ,‏Hujjat al-Islam Mohammad-Hasan ‎Kaviani, the cultural and educational director of the Martyrs’ Affairs and Veterans’ Affairs ‎Department, said that the economic problems that exist today in Iran are very simultaneous ‎processes and stated, “The problems facing society are extensive problems. For this reason, ‎these issues must be taken into account from different areas‏.‏‎”‎


The Iranian cleric added that a lack of resources and incorrect use of available resources, ‎increased consumption and extraordinary changes in the lifestyle of society, foreign and ‎mischievous movements, a lack of belief in domestic capacities and reliance on external ‎faculties are among the factors have created economic problems and poor living standards ‎in the country today. ‎


He pointed out, “With doubt, those issues which have been mentioned as the cause of the ‎economic problems in the country have all come about because of the failure to act in a ‎proper manner and the lack of attention to the policies of the Resistance Economy‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Kaviani emphasized that we must believe that the enemies of the Islamic ‎Republic of Iran would use any means to harm the Islamic system of government and said, ‎‎“It’s natural that in such a situation, the economic system of the country must be shaped by ‎a resistance approach and all organs of the country must participate in this war‏.‏‎”‎


His Eminence emphasized the necessity of implementing the Resistance Economy, stated, ‎‎“The primary solution to the crisis and the first action in the war is resistance and the ‎subsequent actions must be defined on the basis of the quality of the formation of ‎resistance‏.‏‎”‎


He said, “There are many differences between austerity economics and the Resistance ‎Economy because there are essentially no resources in austerity economics‏.‏‎ A family that ‎has lost its money no longer has any resources to manage life. For this reason, they need to ‎reduce their costs and must implement austerity economics‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Kaviani ‎continued, “In contrast, a Resistance Economy ‎refers to a society ‎that has resources and needs to protect its resources and use it in a timely manner in the ‎face of economic problems.”‎


The Iranian official emphasized that for many years, the enemies have targeted Iran’s ‎social ‎capital and said, “The enemies is seeking to reduce and eventually eliminate Iran’s ‎social ‎capital by creating a psychological and economic war.”‎


He said, “Unfortunately, the actions of the enemies and some of the ignorant friends over ‎the past few years have led to the weakening of social capital in the country. Nevertheless, ‎the people have proved, with all their shortcomings in difficult situations, that they are ‎always supporting the Islamic system‏ ‏of government.”‎


In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam Kaviani ‎stated that the weakening of the foundations and ‎pillars of social capital is the most important reason that the current circumstances facing ‎society must given attention and said, “The problems that have arisen in social capital must ‎be quickly amended and restored‏ ‏because if such capital is lost, no one else can replace it‏.‏‎”‎
