President Rouhani made the remarks in a meeting with intellectuals and Muslim scholars in Indonesia.
“All Muslims should break their silence against terrorist groups, which have caused the greatest harm to Islam,” said President Rouhani.
He further defined Islam as “the religion of moderation, logic and rationality,” inviting Muslims to unite in countering “violence, extremism, and terror.”
All Muslims are responsible for presenting the real Islam to the world, the president said, stressing that scholars from all Islamic countries, including Iran and Indonesia, should join forces and defend Islam against attacks.
Islam attaches importance to the life, security and dignity of people and the Muslim Ummah and believes that such issues are on the agenda of the Muslim World.
“Protecting people’s lives and security all over the world is Muslims’ first priority,” Dr.Rouhani stressed.
“How can one tolerate and remain tight-lipped about the killing of innocent people in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Libya or elsewhere in the world?” he asked.
“We Muslims value people’s lives as our religious duty, and thus, the killing of every innocent person, regardless of his religion or nationality is condemned in our viewpoint,” the president said.
