Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi warned of the dangers and impact of social networking sites on ‎the culture of the Iraqi society, especially the youth.‎

RNA – During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large crowd of believers at the Holy ‎‎‎Shrine of Imam al-Husayn in the Iraqi city of Karbala, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ahmad al-Safi ‎warned of the negative culture and impact of social networking sites and said, “Such sites ‎have the most dangerous impact on Iraqi society, especially the youth.‎.”‎

The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani ‎in Karbala stated, “The influential ‎tools and mechanisms of the West, which didn’t previously exist, have infiltrated into our ‎culture of knowledge due to the growth of modern technology and the means of social ‎communication.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi ‎added that due to cyberspace, which has both useful and harmful ‎aspects, most of the affairs left the moderate path and formed an immoral battle and ‎created an atmosphere of confusion in regard to a particular issue concerning the sanctities ‎and morality of the people.‎

‎“We find that a such culture doesn’t have the basic elements of understanding and morality ‎and leads to the abandonment of culture and the decline of respect for one another,” His ‎Eminence added.‎

He called for all Iraqi people to pay attention and warned that there must be a strong and ‎sustained culture saying, “This necessitates guidance and teachers and parents to protect the ‎generations because we may see the destruction of the intellectual and cultural system in the ‎coming years due to the misuse of the tools of cyberspace and the lack of proper ‎management in this regard. After this, we will not find anything left of our cultural heritage.”‎
