Mousavi: “Regime misuses Islam”

26 Apr 2010

Opposition leader, Mir-Hossein Mousavi once more condemned the state’s violent policies against protesters in the name of Islam and added that Islam has become a “hollow shell” in Iran. Speaking to a group of ‘Devotees of the Islamic Revolution and the Sacred Defense’, Mousavi said: “Islam does not beat people up; it does not arrest people; it does not slander people; it does not lock people up and create restrictions.”
He maintained that the Green Movement needs to inform the public regarding all these “problems” because people’s awareness of their rights can be the most effective “tool for change that can benefit Islam and the Revolution.” He also warned that while the government strives to eradicate all organizations, the Green Movement will respond to such policies only with “promotion of awareness.”
Mousavi added: “We must update our methods. Now that we do not have newspapers, we must find new ways. While we still pursue the possibility of newspapers, we must persist in informing the public through virtual media, gatherings, the family and word of mouth.” The opposition leader stressed that information should be spread all across the society’s strata including villagers, farmers, tradespeople, workers and teachers. He added: “We must tell them that this kind of life is below their dignity.” He claimed the Islamic Republic has lost touch with the people.
Mousavi and the opposition leaders have been accused of having disembarked from the “system’s vessel,” by the Supreme Leader. Mousavi reacted to this comment saying: “We have not left the vessel of Islam. And as Muslims, we want to act in ways that will not disappoint our younger generation.”
