Press Shia – The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran condemned Saudi Arabia’s crimes against the oppressed people of Yemen at a protest rally held in Qom and stressed, “The Islamic Seminaries always stand with the oppressed people of the world.”
Press Shia – In an exclusive interview with Press Shia News Agency on the sidelines of a protest rally by both Iranian and foreign seminarians in support of the oppressed people of Yemeni at Qom’s Faydiyyah Seminary on November 18th, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi noted the enthusiastic attendance of the seminarians in the protest and emphasized, “The Islamic Seminaries are international in their essence and stands along the oppressed, irrespective of religion and nationality.”
The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran condemned the crimes perpetrated by Saudi Arabia and its allies against the oppressed people of Yemen and added, “The passionate gathering of seminarians represents the boiling and enthusiastic nature of the Islamic Seminaries in support of the oppressed. It is possible that today, the most oppressed people in the world are the innocent people of Yemen and the arrogant powers are currently perpetrating crimes against them and have created many disasters and oppressions.”
The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom argued that the Islamic Seminaries always stand alongside the oppressed of the world, especially the oppressed people of Yemen and said, “The impressive and significant presence of the scholars, teachers and seminarians has demonstrated that the Islamic Seminaries do not stop supporting the oppressed.”
Saudi Arabia and its regional allies launched a devastating and deadly campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the former government of Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who was allied with Riyadh, back to power and to crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah Islamic Resistance movement.
The Western-backed imposed war, which has so far failed to achieve its stated goals, has, however, constrained humanitarian deliveries of food and medicine to the import-dependent state, leading to a mass cholera outbreak and starvation from famine.
The ongoing Saudi-led military campaign against the impoverished and conflict-plagued Arab country has resulted in the death of 15,185 civilians, including 3,527 children and 2,277 women.
