It is haram to undermine system: cleric

April 28, 2017 - 21:48

TEHRAN – The interim Friday prayer preacher of Tehran cautioned presidential candidates that it is haram (religiously forbidden) to undermine the Islamic system in their debates.

“The debates should resemble debates of clergymen, be logic-oriented, reasoned, and free of grudges and complexes,” Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said, IRIB reported.

“The candidates should take care that their word is documented and there is no trace of slandering and undermining in it. They should not turn the atmosphere into one of disunity.”
