World will not forget role of Gen. Soleimani against terrorism, Islamophobia: Iran CG

Islamabad, IRNA -- The consul general of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Pakistan’s Karachi said that Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani is a transnational figure and the world will not forget his fight against terrorism and Islamophobia, and his support for religious and racial minorities against ISIS crimes.

Hassan Nourian in an article said that January 3rd is the day in which General Lieutenant Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, along with several of his retinues, was attacked by a US drone led by direct order from President Donald Trump and martyred at the Bagdad airport. After this brutal attack, Donald Trump confessed brassily and formally to be involved in this catastrophe. Aftermath he officially claimed that this assassination was implemented directly by his order. Today is the second anniversary of the assassination of this great valiant hero.

The admirable valor and courage of the commander against Takfiri and extremist groups annihilated the roots of ISIS in the region. Soleimani took an action in the circumstances where the whole region had been assaulted by ISIS and the countries were on the edge of destruction. The description of ISIL’s crimes in Iraq and Syria, including the slaughter of the men and children and the enslavement of women and girls in front of their families, could terrify any fighter. But Sardar, with his great experiences attained in the Iran-Iraq war, bravely moved into battlefields of ISIS. His struggles and courage furnished prosperity and blessing for the people around the world. Once upon a time, ISIS was involved in killing people in Europe, and the European security forces were unable to fight and control them. If Soleimani did not take an action against ISIS, todays the destiny of the region and the world even continued in going on an ambiguous pathway.

Remember that this very Trump revealed and announced that ISIS is “our own” creation during the US election campaign. Soleimani, on behalf of the Islamic Republic of Iran, was the first military commander in the world to reach the depths of high-risk fronts at the request of the Syrian and Iraqi governments. It disabled American and Zionist support for ISIS, and finally ended up with the decline of the ISIS’s ominous Caliphate by the liberation of Mosul, Iraq. Even according to the enemies, Soleimani is a hero in the fight against ISIS and Takfiri groups, and it was he who played a significant role in supporting the oppressed nations of the region against ISISs and stopped their target in occupation of the other countries. The assassination of Sardar Soleimani can be examined from various aspects, including legal, political and security dimensions.

Soleimani was the leader of the counter terrorism and Islam phobia around the world. At a time when ISIS declared the Islamic Caliphate under the banner of La Ilaha Illa Allah” and committed the most unprecedented crimes in the human history with the title of Islam and killed many people of Europe and America, Soleimani and his allies fought hard. He stopped the misuse of Islam and religion and Sharia, and prevented to make any negative image of Islam to have it remain infallible and free from any accusations.

The assassination of Sardar Soleimani was a great threat to the peace and security of the whole region and the world, because in the absence of such a brave and prudent commander, there was fear and anxiety about the reestablishment of the Takfiri group of ISIS in the region. But what could it mean to assassinate such a person who dedicated himself for the fight against terrorism?

Besides that, the US terrorist attack on Martyr Soleimani and his retinue, is not only in violation of the international law and human rights, but also is an act of aggression against the sovereignty of the Iraqi government and a clear example of state terrorism. The assassination of a person who is a hero in the counter terrorism and extremism, is a contradiction that can be traced back to Trump’s statement saying we (the United States) are the creators of ISIS.

After all, no nation like Iran and Pakistan understands the plague of terrorism to the deep of their bone. Terrorism is the common pain of these two Muslim nations, Iran and Pakistan, and a lot of blood has been shed on this path. Looking back, the peace and security we cherish now are the result of that martyrs sacrifices such as Sardar Qassem Soleimanis and the 17,000 martyrs of terror in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Soleimani had an ultra-national personality, and now has beyond the history. His commitment to work for the human dignity, regardless of race, religion and nationality, is a crystal clear example of the humanity itself. Soleimani played an important role in supporting religious and racial minorities in Iraq and Syria and his efforts to support the oppressed against the oppressor is known to all.

Now it has been two years past since he was brutally and unmanly assassinated. This crime will not be left unanswered, and the committers, supporters and assistants of this inhumane crime are to be held accountable in the court of justice. Although the reactions of the people all over the world, as well as the views of the political and legal officials and academicians, apparently show that the United States of America is being convicted before the conscience of the whole world.  

Anyhow, the Islamic Republic of Iran will officially use its political, legal and international capacities in order to take action and prosecute the perpetrators of this hideous crime.
