Ayatollah Mousavi-Jazayeri ‎at Rasa News Agency:‎
The representative of the people of Khuzestan in the Assembly of Experts said, “Today, ‎most people spend their time on the INTERNET and on social media. For this reason, ‎we must ‎strengthen the media of the Islamic Seminaries and fight the rumors and ‎misinformation ‎being spread by producing content.”‎

RNA – In a meeting with the staff and reporters at Rasa News Agency’s headquarters in ‎Qom, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad-Ali Mousavi-Jazayeri, the representative of the people ‎of Khuzestan in the Assembly of Experts, offered his appreciation for Rasa News Agency’s ‎‎services and thanked the executives of this seminary media organization in regard to their ‎activities in the domestic and international arena.‎

His Eminence said that today we are faced with a phenomenon called cyberspace that has ‎penetrated public opinion and beliefs, “Today, many people spend their free time on the ‎internet and on social media. For this reason, we must strengthen the media of the Islamic ‎Seminaries and fight the rumours and misinformation being spread by producing content.”‎
‎ ‎
He noted that there is no control and supervision over cyberspace and said, “Unfortunately, ‎false news reports and misinformation is being spread on the internet without acceptable ‎examination by the people. The falsehood of cyberspace has devastating effects on public ‎opinion.”‎

In this regard, Ayatollah Mousavi-Jazayeri added, “Recently news was published online that ‎the Strait of Hormuz was closed by the United States and a war will soon be declared ‎between Iran and the United States and unfortunately this false news was even accepted by ‎well-educated people. This kind of absurd and unfounded news ‎is very harmful for the ‎people.”‎

The former representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Khuzestan ‎province added, “Lecturers and Friday prayer leaders must announce to the public that ‎instead of listening to false news reports on the internet, they must pay attention to reliable ‎news reports that are being published on truthful news agencies. Rasa News Agency is one ‎of the clear examples of this types of media.”‎

He stated that fraudsters are deceiving people through the internet, “When the beliefs for ‎our youths are being shaken by cyberspace, we must feel a sense of endangerment and we ‎need to be concerned regarding this situation.”‎

Ayatollah Mousavi-Jazayeri also referred to the actions and activities carried out in the ‎Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and noted that a great relationship has been established in Najaf ‎with the sources of emulation, scholars, teachers and seminarians and said, “We are trying ‎to establish a connection between the Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and Qom similar to the ‎connection between the Islamic Seminaries of ‎Qom and Mashhad. We are seeking to bring ‎the Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and Qom ‎together so that they are known as the authority ‎of the Shi’ah world.”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary also expressed his satisfaction with the good ‎communication between the Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and Qom ‎and said, “Ayatollah al-‎Sistani, who considers himself as one of the students of Imam Khomeyni, is the head of the ‎Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and has a lot of affection for the Islamic Seminaries of ‎Qom.”‎

He added, “On the other hand, Ayatollah Khamenei and the sources of emulation in Qom are ‎the heads of the Islamic Seminaries of ‎Qom and have a special interest in Ayatollah al-Sistani ‎and always emphasizes the necessity of strengthening the connection between the scholars ‎of Islamic Seminaries of Najaf and Qom.”‎
