Imam Khamenei Slams Saudi Terrorist Execution of Sheikh Al-Nimr
Local Editor

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has strongly condemned Saudi Arabia's execution of His Eminence, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

Imam Khamenei made the remarks at the start of his course to clerics at the post-jurisprudence level in Tehran on Sunday, stressing the need for the entire world to act responsibly in the face of this and other crimes committed by the Saudi regime in Yemen and Bahrain.

"Without a doubt, the unlawfully shed blood of this innocent martyr will have a rapid effect and the divine vengeance will befall Saudi politicians," the Leader added.

Describing the execution of Sheikh Nimr as a "political mistake" made by the Saudi government, Imam Khamenei emphasized that "the Almighty God will not remain indifferent to innocent blood and [this] unrightfully shed blood will rapidly afflict the politicians and executives of his [Saudi] regime."

The Leader also slammed the silence of those who claim to be advocates of freedom, democracy and human rights, and their support for the Saudi regime which is killing innocent people just for criticizing them.

"The Muslim world and the whole world must feel responsibility toward this issue," he added.

Imam Khamenei added that the top Shia cleric neither invited people to take up arms, nor hatched covert plots, but "the only thing that he did was public criticism, [as well as] ordering good and prohibiting vice, which stemmed from [his] religious zest and fervor."

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader noted that torturing the Bahraini people and destruction of their mosques and homes in addition to the bombardment of the Yemeni people for over 10 months were other instances of crimes committed by the Saudi regime.

Imam Khamenei emphasized that "those who are honestly interested in the fate of humanity, [and] the fate of human rights and justice, must follow up on such issues and should not remain indifferent to this situation."
