The revered source of emulation said, “We must always remember the martyrs and the ‎Sacred Defence and we must not forget these great achievements.”‎

RNA – Speaking at a gathering of veterans, self-sacrificers and freed captives from the ‎Sacred Defence [Iran-Iraq War], Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani referred to verses ‎from the Holy Quran and said, “The veterans lined up like strong forts against the tyrannical ‎enemies and didn’t allow the enemies to attack.”‎
‎ ‎
The revered source of emulation added, “The self-sacrificers deal with God Almighty through ‎faith and struggling on the divine path. Every prophet who has been sent had a book of ‎guidance in one hand and had a tool of jihad in the other hand. For this reason, the prophets ‎have been sent for guidance and jihad.”‎

He said that the eight years of the Sacred Defence is a great lesson for the Iranian nation ‎and stated, “After the arrogant powers and colonists marginalized Islam, Imam Khomeyni ‎came to the fore as a great figure like the prophets in order to make the will of God and the ‎front of truth victorious over falsehood but the enemies has created a war in order to ‎destroy the Islamic Revolution and pure Islam.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani continued, “The warriors came to the battlefield in the Sacred ‎Defence in a resounding manner and consolidated the Islamic Revolution. We must always ‎remember the martyrs and the Sacred Defence and we must not forget these great ‎achievements. Some want the martyrs and the culture of the Sacred Defence to be ‎forgotten.”‎
‎ ‎
The teacher in the Islamic Seminaries of Qom added, “The services of martyrs, freed ‎captives and veterans must be explained so that everyone knows that we must respect ‎these warriors and know that the security of the country and the Islamic government is due ‎to the efforts and jihad of these Islamic warriors. Of course, the jihad of the warriors is a ‎war for God but the officials and the people have a duty to appreciate them.”‎

He said that today, the enemies have more hatred and animosity toward the Islamic ‎Revolution than previously and noted, “Previously, the enemies launched a military war but ‎today, they intend to destroy the Islamic Revolution in other ways. Today, indifference and ‎silence is a sin and therefore, we must be vigilant and active.” ‎

Referring to recent actions by some European countries, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani added, ‎‎“Today, the Europeans want to mediate to solve the problem of Iran and if they are able to ‎solve the problem, they must investigate their own serious problems.”‎
