Violence in Name of Islam Reprehensible

President Hassan Rouhani censured terrorism and violence in the name of Islam in any part of the world.
“We condemn extremism, violence and terrorism whether in Palestine, Lebanon and the Levant or in Paris and the US,” Rouhani said in a meeting with the delegates to the Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran on Friday, referring to the deadly shooting attack on the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday and the ensuing fatal incidents.
“Those who are unrightfully killing people and carrying out acts of violence and extremism in the name of Jihad, religion or Islam are, intentionally or unintentionally, treading the path of (promoting) Islamophobia and (are actually) fighting against Islam,” Press TV quoted him as saying.
Rouhani once again reaffirmed Iran’s support for nations that stand up and resist terrorism.
