TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said labeling women as “goods and tool of pleasure” in the West is possibly a Zionist plot aimed at destroying the human society.
Hazrat Fatimah’s character and conduct, as a true leader and also an exemplary spouse and mother, provides a “perfect role model for Muslim women”, the Leader said on Sunday addressing panegyrists on Prophet’s Household on the occasion of birthday anniversary of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (SA), the daughter of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
With a grandeur and stature beyond human’s understanding and imagination, yet one of Hazrat Zahra’s roles was being a “mother, wife and housewife”, he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei further said some unaware deceived people humiliate housewives, while it means raising humans and producing the highest product in the universe, i.e. the human being.
“Designating women as goods and means of pleasure in the western world, most probably, is among Zionists’ plots to destroy human community,” the Leader stressed.
Imam Khamenei has repeatedly in various occasions attached great importance to the status of women in society and family.
Back in 2011, the Leader said in a speech that the Islamic system must do more to fully revive the genuine, Islamic status of women.
Ayatollah Khamenei said problems of the world today stemmed largely from the west’s wrong attitude towards the status of women in society and family and that the wrong attitude has triggered a crisis.
The west has established an unfair equation in society under which the men are the beneficiary and the women are the benefit, and based on the equation, the women must act in such ways as to satisfy the beneficiary, he said, adding, “This is the most immense oppression ever against women”.
