President Rohani responds to critical Imams

Iranian President Hassan Rohani responded to the attacks against him by the Tehran and Mashhad Friday Mass Imams, saying “Some are constantly concerned with people’s religion and the judgement day without expert knowledge of either.”

He stressed that “a religious government” is something to be commended but not a “religion dictated by the government.”

“the people cannot be forced into heaven with lashes.”
