June 22, 2009
QOM – Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi Amoli has said it is incumbent upon all people to observe the law.“Considering the dangers which threaten Iran from the East and the West, keeping the peace is the best choice,” he stated on Sunday.
Ayatollah Javadi added, “(We) should not do something which harms the presence of the people (at the ballot boxes) and the system. The enemy is ready to utilize riots.”
Commenting on the damages to the public property during the recent riots, he pointed out, “No Muslim would set on fire others’ homes and these (the rioters) are surely foreigners.”
The cleric also urged the candidates and their supporters to pursue their complaints through legal channels.
“If an election offence has taken place and there is documentation, it should be presented. However, this should be done through legal channels.
