Mohammad Javad Haj Ali Akbari, the chief of the Imams of Friday Prayer Policy Council, said in a Friday, November 29, 2019 sermon in Tehran that aired on Channel 1 (Iran) that the Islamic punishment for people who cause fitna, disrupt public security, and endanger people’s lives, property, and family honor is severe. He expressed hope that the recent demonstrations in Iran will be turned into an “opportunity” and that society will be “purified of the lowlifes, savages, and criminals.” He added a prayer that the “hand of divine justice that extends from the sleeve of our law enforcement and legal system” will take “quick measures.” The audience chanted: “Allah Akbar! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent… Death to America! Death to England… Death to Israel!”

 

Mohammad Javad Haj Ali Akbari: God is very strict with those who cause fitna, disrupt public security, and endanger people’s lives, property, and family honor. The punishment for aggressors who wage war against Allah is the harshest of all Islamic punishments. The expectation is that threat will be turned into an opportunity and that society will be cleansed of the lowlifes, savages, and criminals. God willing, the divine justice that extends from the sleeve of our law enforcement and legal system will catch them and take quick measures so that this will please the public. Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites and infidels! Death to Israel!
