Children must be educated away from the culture of violence

Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi called for the education of children away from the culture of ‎violence and considered the schools and families responsible for this matter.‎

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 ‎‎addressed the necessity of prohibiting violent games and stressed, “On Eid al-Fitr, the firing ‎of celebratory gunfire must be prevented because religious law and custom has forbidden ‎the use of violent games and celebratory gunfire ‎but we are still witnessing the use of these ‎things and the harming of others.”‎

The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani described violence as an uncivilized ‎tool and added, “Sometimes violence is used to impose some thoughts and unfortunately, ‎we see it in many places to solve some problems. Existing crises don’t end with violence but ‎rather they increase them.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi considered one of the various forms of violence as violence in the ‎family and stated, “The education of children is important from childhood but unfortunately, ‎there are tools that encourage the use of violence even within the family and the child ‎believes that when he beats his brother up, his courage is proven and this is while the ‎courage of man is based on reason and the use of physical power outside of human ‎interactions.”‎

The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Abbas ibn Ali continued, “The child sits in front of a ‎screen that shows violent programs and, unfortunately, the father educates his child with his ‎culture of violence. We are an Ummah which has a lot of appropriate educational tools, but ‎why don’t we use them and have rather sought after other things?”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi said, “Schools and families are obliged to educate children and young ‎people in an approach which is far from violence and murder but social networks and the ‎internet are promoting violence and preventing young people from paying attention to the ‎future.”‎
