RNA – Speaking during his dars al-kharij class in Qom on December 30th, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Sadeq Mohammadi, the head of the Jurisprudence Association of the Islamic Seminaries of Qom, commemorated the ninth anniversary of the 9th of Dey [December 30th] demonstrations, which marks the anniversary of the date when millions of people went to the streets on December 30, 2009 to demonstrate their support for the Islamic establishment after the post-election riots.
The renowned teacher in the Islamic Seminaries of Qom presented his opinions on the dimensions of this epic and the sedition of 2009 and stated, “This sedition was the result of sedition, hesitation and hypocrisy by some vested interests and considered the bitter silence by these vested interests before this movement as among the factors in the continuation of this sedition.”
He celebrated the creation of the epic and the insight of the people on the 9th of Dey and described the presence of the people as the end of the fire of sedition and said, “After the events of the 9th of Dey, some people took a stand against the sedition and engaged in clarifying the issue.”
Hujjat al-Islam Mohammadi continued, “Some people were silent and were satisfied with the deviated movement. Other people might not have been satisfied but remained silent and unquestioning due to personal interests, worldly matters and other issues.”
His Eminence added, “Many may have ignored the saying of Imam Ali wherein he stated ‘during sedition be like an adolescent camel who has neither a back strong enough for riding nor udders for milking’ and took seclusion as their path.”
He referred to the story of the people of Thamud and the Prophet Salih in the verses of the Quran and said, “The word ‘fa‘aqaruha’ [‘and they hamstrung her [the she-camel]’ appears at least three times in the Holy Quran, in Surah Hud [11:65], in in Surah al-Shams [91:14] and in Surah al-Shu’ara [26:157].”
Hujjat al-Islam Mohammadi added, “The cause of the great punishment by God Almighty was that the people of Prophet Salih were satisfied with the action of that single person [who hamstrung the she-camel] and it’s necessary for those who were cautious and those who secluded themselves in a doubtful manner to change their ways and increase their awareness.”
