Iran’s Leader slams West’s fake support for women’s rights
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has roundly dismissed the Western governments' bogus advocacy for women’s rights, saying that women and girls in the West are subject to different forms of abuse.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in the Iranian capital city of Tehran on Wednesday as he addressed a group of Iranian women in the run-up to the celebrations commemorating the birthday anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (SA), the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
“The absolute brazenness of the West comes into sight when it presents itself as the forerunner of advocacy for women’s right, whilst it is responsible for flurries of blows dealt to the dignity and prestige of women. This could be explained as utter shamelessness.
He stated that one would feel deeply ashamed to know about last year’s social movement, in which Western women publicized their experiences of sexual abuse or sexual harassment.
“This is what they suggest by women’s rights and freedom. This is by no means freedom, but rather utter slavery,” the Leader said.
