WFPIST Chief: 
Lack of theist democracy in some Islamic countries, Islamic world’s problems

Tehran, IRNA – Secretary general of World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought (WFPIST) said here on Sunday that one of the problems faced by the Islamic world today is the lack of theist democracy in some Islamic countries, breaching the citizenship rights in them, and ignoring their peoples’ most natural and righteous demands.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the 35th Islamic Unity Conference, the WFPIST Secretary General Hamid Shahriari, congratulated the blessed birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and Imam Ja’far Sadeq (PBUH) to the conference audience and the world Muslims, reiterating that today, we are faced with wars, bloodshed, terrors, disputes and various kinds of insults within the Islamic world.

“Due to such difficulties inside the Islamic world, we titled this year’s 35th Islamic Unity Conference: Islamic Unity, Preventing Discord and Disputes in Islamic World,” he added.

Shahriari said that although Islam’s initial order was promotion of peace and brotherhood among Muslims, but the emergence of difficulties within the Islamic world led to the outbreak of such problems which he mentioned some of them, and then he proposed ways for their practical resolving.

“The first problem with which the Islamic world is faced with is the global oppression system, led by the United States and the looter west, which are constantly trying to make endless wars and disputes within the Islamic world, and justifying their nasty deeds, while they westerners are the main source of all those bloodsheds, and wasting the wealth of the Islamic world nations,” he added.

Shahriari said that the 2nd problem is the existence of some Islamic world leaders and clerics who are justifying their deeds, which paves the path for those oppressors’ moves who have tied their illegitimate interests to the interests of the Islamic world’s enemies, and pave the path for their presence in the Islamic world by naturalizing this with them.

The WFPIST secretary-general said that the 3rd problem faced by the Islamic world is the existence of certain historical and contextual disputes within the words, thoughts and jurisprudence of the Islamic schools of thought, which have paved the path for activation of the deeds of the enemies of Islam.

“The fourth problem is the ignorance, or treachery of the followers of some extremist followers of Islamic schools of thought, either Shia, or Sunni Muslims, who insult the sanctities of the other Muslims, and pave the path for disputes, Takfirist moves and bloodshed, even proposing looting the other Muslims and massacring them,” he regretted.

Shahriari referred to the 5th problem of the Islamic world as the lack of theist democracy in some Islamic countries, and adopting state decisions just by one family, breaching the citizenship rights of their nations, and ignoring their righteous demands.

The 6th problem is the existence of political parties which are fighting each other in some Islamic countries, and prompting the atmosphere of accusations, distrust, sabotage, resorting to force and even breaching the Islamic rules, aimed at securing partisan and political interests, while eliminating all political competitors and criticizers.

“The 7th problem is the competition among Islamic countries in taking sides and finding supporters, form among the enemies of the Islamic world, aimed at defeating their competitors within the Islamic world,” he added.

Shahriari then proposed ways for resolving all those eight difficulties, including fortifying the strength of the world Muslims in confrontation with the US hegemony; the Islamic world clerics’ refraining from taking side with the despotic monarchs and condemnation of the Takfirist and terrorist tendencies, refraining from disputes in jurisprudence thoroughly, and promoting the establishment of theist democracies within the Islamic world.
