The Minister talked about the martyrdom values presented by many Syrian Arab Army personnel and scholars, the latest of them was martyr Mohammad Adnan al-Afyouni ,the late Mufti of Damascus and its countryside, the martyr of the true word, as the takfiri terrorists tried to silence his national voice ,but rather he will stay in the method of Syria’s scholars.
He added that Syria has preserved its sovereignty and people’s dignity and defended its soil by the national army that protected the beliefs and achieved the interests of people, along with its leader who protected the country by his wisdom and being close to his people through inspecting the houses of martyrs, injuries and those who were affected by fires as he listened to elders and kids alike.
The Minister concluded “ We refuse dealing with Islam as goods in the transactions of cheap political market between Macron and Erdogan ,stressing that abusing the dignified prophet is an offense to 2 billion Muslims around the world, adding that Islam is not represented by Muslim Brotherhood or Wahhabism ; rather it is inside the hearts of millions of mankind.
