Shirazi World Foundation’s message on ‘Intel Day for the Prevention of Violent Extremism Conducive to Terrorism’

The Shirazi World Foundation sent a message to the international Community on the “International Day to Prevent Violent Extremism Conducive to Terrorism”, affirming its full commitment to combating this phenomenon.

Through its message, the Foundation called on governments and international and humanitarian organizations to assume their responsibility in taking all measures to combat violence and terrorism by developing programs and plans based on respect for human rights and rejection of marginalization and deprivation.

It also emphasized the instructions of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) in dealing with this phenomenon, as well as the treatises of the late Imam Muhammad al-Husseini al-Shirazi and his theory on consolidating the culture of (Non-Violence).

The Foundation said in its message, which was seen by Shi’a Waves Agency: “The unilateralism of governments in setting development programs in the absence of a realistic perception of society and its transformations in all its details and intellectual, material, social and economic dimensions, would produce much negativity, no matter how good the intentions.”

The Foundation continued, “The report of the United Nations Secretary-General on (January 15, 2016) presented to the General Assembly on reviewing the action plan to prevent violent extremism, referred to many factors for the spread of violent extremism, all of which go back to the roots of deprivation and marginalization, such as lack of social and economic opportunities, discrimination, and poor administration, human rights violations, and spreading extremist ideology in prisons.”

The Foundation also drew attention to what the Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) emphasized, “the importance of rationalizing human tendencies towards sublime values instead of suppressing them in order to prevent them from transforming into extremism and violence.”
