Alavi said the Intelligence Ministry has “stopped and neutralized two suicide bombers in two separate provinces on the International Quds Day (the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan) and it has also arrested 130 members of Takfiri terrorist groups.”
Its a slap in the face of any devout Muslim!
The act of accusing other Muslims of being takfiri has itself become a sectarian slur particularly since the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, as when used by Shi’a groups such as Hezbollah to refer to Sunnis
“The Intelligence Ministry is in control in its confrontation against all internal and international threats,” he reiterated.
Alavi added that the ministry has also defused several other terrorist plots and released many abducted Iranians, including fencing champion Hamed Sedaqati who was released after months of abduction in the Southeastern Sistan and Balouchestan province.
The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
