Hujjat al-Islam ‎Naqawi:
Rasa – The principal of Jami’at Urwat al-Wuthqa Islamic Seminary in ‎Lahore gave an analysis ‎of some of the major events of 2018.‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Jawad ‎‎Naqawi, the principal of Jami’at Urwat al-Wuthqa Islamic Seminary in the Pakistani city of ‎‎Lahore said, “The Gregorian calendar year has reached its end and three days are left and ‎‎after ‎that 2019 will begin. When a new year starts and one year ends then it presents some ‎‎new issues and arguments. At ‎this time when the year is ending it is a time to ponder over ‎‎what has happened in the year. The year 2018 has had many events, ‎accidents and changes ‎‎and specifically in the Islamic world and in Pakistan.”‎

The Pakistani scholar said, “In 2018, a new government was formed in Pakistan and ‎whatever was happening in past ‎‎a new wave came up which is ongoing. There has been a ‎‎lot of damage this year. ‎The devilishness of the global powers has increased, issues of ‎humanity have increased, for example there has been warning bells ‎about a water crisis. ‎Also, in Pakistan ‎this issue was not raised seriously but rather, it was used politically.”‎

He stated, “In 2018, certain bitter ‎incidents have ‎taken place and worthy lives have been ‎lost. Certain lands have been the ground of greater ‎severities.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Naqawi said, “The first country is Yemen. In the last few months, many ‎Yemeni people have been killed brutally by ‎‎regional and global powers. ‎They destroyed and ‎looted the country, stopped all ‎rout means reaching them ‎and this aggression is continuing.”‎

The graduate of the Islamic Seminary of Qom stated, “The second country is Palestine, ‎‎where oppression increased and a new movement ‎also started, that is the Return movement ‎which takes place every Friday. Every Friday, the youths, woman, ‎children come on the ‎borders and they raise slogans that ‎we have to return to our usurped land.”‎

He noted, “The third country in which ‎extreme oppression has occurred in is Kashmir and ‎every day youths are ‎killed. The valley of Kashmir is suffering a high degree of ‎sorrow. ‎Currently, the severity is very high. Previously, ‎there was support ‎for Kashmir but now they ‎have been completely left on their own. Their youths have been ‎killed, ‎imprisoned, the ‎government has been ended, their leaders are put in prisons and ‎Kashmir is under President’s ‎rule. In the regard, 2018 has been a ‎tough year for Kashmir and it is ongoing.‎”‎

In regard to Syria, Hujjat al-Islam Naqawi explained, “For Syria, the direction of war changed ‎in 2018 and became one-sided and the terrorist groups ‎‎have completely capitulated though ‎complete cleansing has not yet occurred. In the ‎past, the battle was ‎not-one-sided – the ‎majority of the world were the supporters of the terrorist ‎phenomenon and very few were ‎on the side of Syria. Although, the battle at the ‎diplomatic level has not ended, but on the ‎ground this has become one-sided. Turkey, the United States and some other ‎countries have ‎‎preserved some locations of terrorists in Kurdish-majority areas and in some other regions.” ‎

The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in ‎Pakistan added, “After this phase of war, negotiations will start and there it will be decided ‎what will happen ‎in Syria. I will mention this separately that the ‎situation in Syria is very ‎complex. ‎There have been two world wars, which were very lowly and abased wars fought ‎‎in Europe ‎but in our region we have been taught about them as the ‘Great Wars.’ Those who ‎achieved victories in ‎Europe ‎dispersed themselves. Those who were defeated in the First ‎World War – Germany ‎and Japan – were brutally treated.”‎

He noted, “The ‎same situation is now occurring in Syria and as I said ‎before, from the very ‎beginning Russia has been playing dirty with politics in Syria. Dirty ‎politics is not an ‎abuse it ‎is a terminology in political science in which you can do anything you want to ‎achieve your ‎own ‎interests. Three countries are famous in regard to their involvement in dirty politics, ‎although the United States is ‎also involved in similar issues. These countries are Russia, ‎‎China and India. They take full advantage of the ‎crises in other countries. For example, India ‎has been taking free oil from Iran for ‎decades. When Iranians ‎ask for money, the Indians ‎say there are restrictions in the global banking system so we cannot ‎‎transfer the payment.‎”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Naqawi said, “In this manner, they have troubled Iran. China does the same ‎thing and traps other countries and ‎takes advantage of them. They earn money from ‎everything. If there is war they will earn ‎‎money, if there is a truce then they will also earn ‎money. If the market is bad or good they just earn money. In Syria, ‎Russia is engaging in ‎the same dirty ‎politics. When the war became one-sided, Russia has changed ‎its style of ‎politics and tactics. Now Russia is ‎trying to remove Iran involvement in Syria and also wants ‎to expel Hezbollah. They want Iran to completely ‎leave ‎Syria because after the war, they ‎don’t want Russia to obtain all the benefits of the reconstruction work that will begin in ‎Syria.”‎
