Imam Khomeini denounced Takfirism, terrorism

 Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic frequently through his historic speeches and messages used to denounce all forms of violence, extremism and terrorism. 

 Imam maintained that the Takfiri militant groups were playing into hands of vicious powers and posing serious challenges to the world peace and security. 

Imam Khomeini strongly condemned the extremist ideologies and all forms of violence and  Takfiri terrorism. 

The great leader of the Muslim world believed that these types of violent approaches were being propagated by the Muslim opponents and could harm the Islamic societies. 

The religious scholar believe that the Takfiri ideologies have also lead to emergence of the militant groups such as al-Qaeda, Deash and other terrorist groups. 

 Following the footsteps of Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, senior Iranian officials have always undertaken serious efforts through international forums to promote peace across the planet. 

In December 2013, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to approve Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s initiative known as "World Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE)," which called on all nations across the globe to denounce violence and extremism.

The Iranian president had proposed the initiative in his address to the UN Disarmament Conference in New York on September 25, 2013.

President  Rouhani has recently regreted that the world is witnessing a rise in extremism, emphasizing the need for a “strong will” in the international community to uproot terror and violence.

“Unfortunately today, we are witnessing the growth of violent extremism in the world,” Rouhani recently said in a speech at Moscow State University upon receiving an honorary doctoral degree.

“Islamophobia, racism and Takfiri ideologies have, in effect, joined one another and risen up to challenge peoples’ integrity and to feed violence and extremism,” Rouhani noted.

The Iranian president further pointed to his 2015 proposal to the UN, World Against Violence and Extremism, and said “the need for a global will to eliminate violence and extremism is today felt more than ever before.”
