Hardliner stresses perfection of Iranian Supreme Leader

Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi

Iranian hardliner, Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi defended himself against recent accusations that he is trying to uproot the Supreme leader by calling Ayatollah Khamenei the “symbol of truth” not only in Iran but also in the world.

In a meeting with Basij students of Open University Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi said that Ayatollah Khamenei has no “weaknesses” and the history of his family is “without fault,” because his children do not interfere in the “smallest political and economic matter.”

Mesbah Yazdi continued his admiration of Ayatollah Khamenei saying that “sedition” will continue and to stop it “we must look onto the great source of light to see where it shines.”

Recently AliAkbar Mohtashamipour, senior member of the reformist group, Association of Combatant Clerics accused Mesbah Yazdi of not even having faith in the Supreme Leader. Mohtashamipour intimated that Mesbah Yazdi is connected with a secret sect that has “nestled” in the Al-Ghadir Foundation and aims to cut the roots of the Leadership.

The international Al-Ghadir Foundation has branches in all of Iran’s provinces as well as a number of other countries and its mission statement is to promote “principles of religious government.”

Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is one of the staunch proponents of fundamentalist Islam and the conservative faction of the Islamic Republic.
