Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Saturday lack of scientific progress has been the main reason behind western domination over Muslim countries in the past, adding that fostering unity among Islamic Ummah and progress in science can buck this trend.
“The main reason behind the Islamic world being dominated by the West is scientific backwardness. The West–after centuries of scientific backwardness–could increase its wealth, scientific and military power using Muslin scientific advancements, and later through colonization caused the current situation for the Muslim nations,” his official website reported.
Addressing a group of religious scholars, the Leader called on the Muslim elite to help create “an intellectual movement and public demand for scientific progress” that would help Muslim nations once again reach the pinnacle of knowledge.”
He said “If Muslims accelerate their progress in science, the enemies of Islam and the United State cannot dictate to heads of Muslim states ‘you must do that and you mustn’t do that’,” he said.
