The teacher in the Islamic Seminary referred to the intentions of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in regard to the economic system of Iran and stated, “Given his remarks over the past few years and the special emphasis he has placed on the Resistance Economy, we find that the main duty of the government is to regulate the economic situation.”
Hujjat al-Islam Mojtahed-Shabestari stated that the economy issue has a direct impact on culture and considered the Resistance Economy as an important defensive and jihadi bulwark.
He pointed out the enemies’ organized efforts to promote cultural negligence and said, “The enemies are seeking to infiltrate the cultural front of the country through various means. By launching a cultural conflict, the enemies seek to destroy Islamic culture and weaken the peoples’ beliefs, especially those of the youth.”
Hujjat al-Islam Mojtahed-Shabestari said that one of the enemies’ weapons and means of penetrating the peoples’ hearts and minds, especially those of the youth of the country is through the internet and emphasized the need to decontaminate and refine this space by the government and said, “We don’t oppose the availability of the internet but we want it to be decontaminated and cleansed. The internet must not be left unchecked and be put at the disposable of the people.”
