TEHRAN (Iran News) – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed the unity in the country, advising the officials to avoid falling into the trap of factionalism.
Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with a number of Islamic Development Organization officials on Wednesday.
The Leader urged officials to avoid producing superficial and ineffective works without having the right valuable content.
Referring to the significance of using the right method and language by officials to address young people, Ayatollah Khamenei added, “The way of dealing and talking with a young person should be different from the way of dealing and talking with an ignorant or enemy.
The Leader also said that the way of propagation and talking inside and outside the country should be different from each other.
During the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that the two important duties of cultural and propagation organizations is the production and presentation of rich content based on new ideas and thoughts, as well as taking into account the social and cultural requirements of cultural activities while being God-wary at the same time.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution praised the Islamic Propagation Organization for their endeavors. Referring to verses from the Quran, Imam Khamenei considered the fear of God in the meaning of “consideration, observance and mindfulness” as a necessary and permanent strategy for those active in the fields of culture and propagation. “Cultural-propagation organizations must make sure that the word and decree of God are not overlooked under any circumstances. One should not be afraid of controversies and accusations in this field”, he added.
The Leader stated that paying attention to social requirements in propagation does not equal with ignoring God’s awareness and His eminence.
He listed giving attention to the taste of the audience in cultural and propagation related activities as one of these requirements. “The language you use to communicate with a young person is different from the language you use to talk to an ignorant, or antagonistic person. In the same way, the language of speaking and preaching in other countries should be different in nature to the kind of cultural-propagation work that is being implemented inside the country, in Revolutionary institutes and organizations included.”
The Islamic Development Organization is an Iranian religious and cultural organization. It was created by the founder of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khomeini (RA) after the 1979 Revolution in Iran and is under the supervision of Ayatollah Khamenei.
