Qom:In a meeting with an Iranian official in Imam Al-Sajjad (as) seminary school in the city of Qom, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, a senior Shia cleric, said, ” We are living in a world which is dominated by media networks; the media play the main role in today’s world and we need to give this issue serious consideration.

Every penny spent on creating effective media is worth it since Islam’s enemies are controlling a strong network of media worldwide and we must not fall behind in this ideological battle. ”

“The Muslim nations need to create such a strong media to confront the threats of Western-Zionist hegemonic system of media networks,” Ayatollah Makarem added.

“History has shown that Islam’s adversaries always seek their own benefits; sometimes they twist realities in their media to make mountains out of molehills.”

The senior cleric added, “As Muslims, we must stand firm in our resolve to continue on our path of speaking the truth; one should accept certain principles and move forward according to them.”

“Another major issue that needs to be addressed is the condition of our youth who are facing numerous ideological threats. Our job is to educate them on these threats at schools since their childhood .” Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi added.
