Ayatollah Araki said, “Today, cultural engineering is being pursued in the West in order to ‎direct the will and thoughts of the people toward the wishes of Western governments.”‎

RNA – Speaking at a mourning ceremony on the fifth night of Muharram at Shohada ‎Husayniyah in Qom, Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, the secretary-general of the World Forum for ‎the Approximation of Islamic Schools of Thought, said that the uprising of Imam al-Husayn ‎wasn’t for this world nor was it competition for domination and said, “The uprising of the ‎Imam al-Husayn was to demonstrate the features and dimensions of the divine religion to ‎the people and to establish the rule of justice.” ‎

In other remarks, the member of the Assembly of Experts stressed that one of the ‎characteristics of Western civilization is the disconnection of human beings from divine ‎revelation and said, “Western civilization has committed the greatest crimes in the history of ‎mankind against humanity. In no era of human civilization, has there ever been a civilization ‎like that of the West which has disrupted human reason and has closed their eyes and ears.”‎

He added, “American society is a society which is completely unaware. Some think that ‎American society is advanced, but it isn’t, if society has technology and weapons, it isn’t a ‎sign of progress.”‎

Ayatollah Araki said, “A society where people’s eyes and ears are closed isn’t advanced. ‎Don’t the American people see what crimes their government is committing throughout the ‎world? Is there anyone in the United States who wants to make their politicians answer for ‎their crimes?”‎
‎ ‎
He said, “If anyone reports on how Westerners interact with Iranian media and the message ‎of the Imam of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khomeyni], they see how they don’t allow ‎the message of the Islamic Revolution to be broadcasted.”‎

Ayatollah Araki added, “American thinkers themselves say that the American people don’t ‎have the power of political thought and analysis and are unaware of the world. The American ‎people regard Palestinians as the manifestations of violence and the Zionist regime as the ‎symbol of justice and righteousness. Today, cultural engineering is being pursued in the West ‎in order to direct the will and thoughts of the people toward the wishes of Western ‎governments.”‎
