RNA – Hujjat al-Islam Mohammad-Mahdi Mohaqqeqi, the CEO of Rasa News Agency, and a group of managers of this seminary media organization met with Ayatollah Seyyed Hashem Hoseyni-Bushehri for a discussion.
In this meeting, Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri, appreciated the activities and actions of Rasa News Agency in reflecting the news and achievements of seminaries and clergy and explained, “One of the problems of seminaries has long been that the message of the seminaries and seminarians wasn’t well reflected, but all praise be to God, the situation is different now and theological news agencies, including Rasa News Agency, have been very successful and have been able to build good trust inside and outside the seminaries environment and have become a source of news for those who follow the news of the seminaries. Especially since in addition to sending news, content is also analyzed and presented.”
Referring to the issue of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the duties of the seminary media organizations in this field, the Friday prayer leader of Qom added, “Your presence and that of other seminary media organizations in the field is an effective presence and you were able to cover the work and actions of seminarians well.”
He described the jihadi presence of students and clerics in the fight against the Coronavirus as a clear example of self-sacrifice and praised this social struggle and added, “In the case of the Coronavirus, the jihadi seminarians worked hard and sacrificed. In the early days of the outbreak, when even the companions of the patients were not willing to help, the jihadi students of the seminaries went forth without any expectations and went to the aid of doctors, medical staff and nurses.”
In another part of his speech, Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri called the orders and instructions of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] “the bright light of the movement of seminaries” and emphasized, “The decision and determination of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Seminaries is that by forming committees and working groups in this field, we will examine the collection of orders of the Supreme Leader, what demands and guidelines have been implemented, and what orders that have not been implemented. All of these orders will be implemented, and Rasa News Agency can help us in this regard.”
The vice president of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom also stated, “The self-sacrifice of the clergy during these days also made the appearance of the seminarians more visible and also promoted and strengthened the social base of the clergy.”
It’s worth mentioning that at the beginning of the meeting, Hujjat al-Islam Mohaqqeqi presented a report on the activities of Rasa News Agency.
He praised Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri’s foresight, interaction with the media, sympathy, pursuit of solving the problems of seminarians and seriousness in pursuing macro issues of the seminaries as his outstanding features and emphasized on strengthening revolutionism in the seminaries and stressed, “The young and revolutionary generation of the seminaries needs more attention and trust from the elders of the seminaries, especially the Supreme Council of the Islamic Seminaries.”
