Iranian Academics Ask European Counterparts to Reveal Institutionalized Distortion of Realities in West

TEHRAN (FNA)- Hundreds of Iranian university professors in a letter to their European counterparts condemned the sacrilege of Islamic sanctities in the West as cultural terrorism, and called for their assistance to reveal the western governments’ lies and attempts to distort the realities.

Your colleagues in Iran expect you not to leave reality alone and defenseless on the battlefield of fight against cultural terrorism and institutionalized distortion by the western governments, specially the Americans and the Zionists, said the letter signed by over 700 Iranian university professors and academics on Monday.

“We regret that we are again witnessing the repetition of cultural terrorism of a French magazine against the character of popular Islam's Prophet (PBUH) after 5 years,” it added.

The Iranian university professors called on their European counterparts to inform the western societies of their governments’ policies to implement the plots of capitalists in the world.

Supporters of right-wing Danish politician Rasmus Paludan, who leads the anti-Islamic group, Tight Direction (Stram Kurs), burned a copy of Holy Qur’an in the Southern Swedish city of Malmo during an illegal gathering on August 28.

Also, on September 1, the ill-reputed French Magazine Charlie Hebdo also republished blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet of Islam on the eve of the trial of suspects in a deadly attack on the paper’s office five years ago.

People across the world and different cities of Iran have held rallies to protest at the recent insulting moves against Islam Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the holy Quran in the European states, condemning French President Emanuel Macron for his support for the blasphemous acts.

A host of Iranian officials have also condemned the sacrilegious move.

Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qaibaf condemned Charlie Hebdo’s blasphemous act, and said that the Muslims of the world would unanimously deplore this "unforgivable and vile sin".

Qalibaf referred to the blasphemous move taken by Charlie Hebdo in insulting Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), and wrote on his Instagram account that "the insult to the Prophet of Goodness once again showed the deep-rooted enmity of the arrogant criminals against the message of love and affection of the Messenger of God all over the world."

He reiterated that the Muslims of the world will unanimously condemn this unforgivable and vile sin.
