Reuters News Agency to see the photos of mourning rituals of Shiite Muslims on Tasua and Ashura ..
kind of theater)and lots of other meaningful rituals in different cities, towns and villages around this country.Isn’t it worthy of attention that stabbing is forbidden by Shiite leaders and is known as a crime by the government in the only formal Shiite country in the world (Iran) and there is no photo of Iranians stabbing in reuters?Of course these agencies put a few pictures showing other aspects and other scenes of these rituals to say that they are not partial but of course this is the biggest insult to the addressees’(audiences’) intelligence and common sense.Note that in reuters site any photo against the Muslims with negative messages is showed, even if it is not at all artistic or taken by a professional photographer, but beautiful and artistic photos with positive and spiritual messages from Muslims (esp. Shiites) are not confirmed by photo-editors of reuters! The confirmed photos have no artistic or news value, the only reason to show them is being anti-Islam anti-Shiite, attributing harshness, assassination, murder and…to the Shiites. They are truly partial and time passing and the history is the only thing which shows their real face under the mask!it is good to know that Muslims believe that if a person intentionally hits himself/herself or others, he/she has done a sin even if it causes a slight blush on the skin, and he/she must pay Diah(a payment as a punishment for sins) now can they do such cruel actions?! Of course this is what a few extremists of Shiites do and extremists exist in all the good religions and groups in the world. For example don’t these news agencies see the extremist Christian groups who show their interest in Jesus by hitting their own bodies, blood shedding(including nailing their feet and hands)and…?Or the American Satan-worshipers who do extremely cruel actions to their body (like cutting their body, eating blood and excrement, and…)Which every rational person admits their danger for the body and soul, shouldn’t be shown and introduced completely as they are to all the people around the world? How is it possible that in improved countries, claimed to be civilized, a child or teenager kills his/her classmates so easily and these news agencies don’t show the different aspects of this disaster? Is it just Shiite that has such extremists who should be shown with hundreds of photos?!!! I think that if a person who knows nothing about Islam and Shiite from anywhere in the world decides to have research about this religion and comes to reuters or such an international news agency as a resource, what he/she would see of the mistake of a little group of this religion and what he would learn about this belief? He/she is free to have any wrong idea and reuters (or the similar news agencies) is responsible for this misinterpretation. This is a mass media treachery!The peak of these treacheries is in Moharram month. Who is Imam Husain? what do Shiite people want to show by these vast mourning rituals in Moharram brief I can say that imam Husain (peace be upon him)the third religion leader of Shiite, and his family and friends were martyred in Iraq, Karbala city(that was just a desert at that time)1400 years ago in a very bad situation. These rituals are held all the years to remind the great goals of this happening (to Shiite know the liars, tyrants and Hippocratic of their time and never yield to the tyrannies).Husain (pbuh) and 72bodies of his followers stood against thousands of his enemies and were killed apparently, but in reality, he was the real victorious side of the battle.Although reuters had an intentionally unjust judgment about Shiite Muslims, a little passing of time and history will have a just judgment about this injustice of reuters News Agency.
