The revered source of emulation highlighted the arrogant powers’ major role in the ‎emergence of extremist and terrorist groups in the Middle East and described Takfirism as ‎the most dangerous threat to the Islamic world.‎

RNA – In a speech on Sunday, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi said, “Today, the ‎‎danger posed by Takfiris is the greatest in the Islamic world, and in some countries, such as ‎‎Syria, Yemen and Lebanon, it has started a war whose flames have engulfed the Muslim ‎‎world.”‎

The leading cleric further pointed to the recent unrest in Iraq and said, “Takfiris in Iraq have ‎‎lit a fire that has affected both Sunnis and Shi’ahs, and this is dangerous for the Islamic ‎‎world.”‎

‎“The existence of Takfiris is a threat to all humanity and we must all work together to ‎‎destroy and overthrow them,” he added.‎

In recent years, the Middle East has been plagued with Takfiri terrorist groups like Daesh, ‎‎which are believed to have been created and supported by the West and some regional Arab ‎‎countries.‎

The terrorist groups, which claim to be Islamic but whose actions are anything but, have ‎‎been committing heinous crimes not only against non-Muslims but mostly against Muslims in ‎‎the region.‎
