Leader: Those using country's resources not allowed to be opposition

Tehran, Dec 27, IRNA – Islamic Revolution's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with the members of the Islamic Propagation Coordination Council that those who had or have all the facilities of the country at hand shouldn't act as opposition.

'During war, you should guess what the enemy intends to do, but, nowadays, you don’t need to guess; thousands of lie-shooting arsenals are working against the Iranians to make them disappointed and pessimistic, and take their confidence,' said Ayatollah Khamenei.

The Supreme Leader said, 'Unfortunately some people do the same in the country; they lack piety. Such people have political religion, instead of religious politics; their religion is politicization.'

'They do the same thing that the enemy does to move some individual or party up or down. Some even have media and pulpits. They can talk but they don't take into account either God and religion, or fairness.'

Ayatollah Khamenei added that such people make the enemy happy at the price of disappointing the nation and the youth. 'Among them are some of those who once had or now have all the managerial facilities of the country and take the role of opposition.'

'The ones that had or have the country in their hands don’t have the right to talk against the country; they must be responsible,' Supreme Leader said.

He added, '[For instance] I who have resources should be responsible, not a claimant; I have to be responsible about what I have done with the resources, not be a plaintiff against this and that; the people don't accept this. One may think he is influential on people, but people are resilient and don’t buy it.'

'Pseudo-revolutionariam is different from true revolutionarism. Revolutionarism is a hard task; it requires commitment and piety. It is not allowed that one be in charge of the country for a decade, and in the next decade he become the antagonist.'
