"I believe that culture is the reflection of people’s lives and their achievements. Therefore it is neither injectable nor imposable, nor could it be effected by other impositions,” he continued.
Qarazi added "In our country it has been the case in the last years that those with authority in culture have either gone to Russia, the UK, or France, but people have strengthened their culture. Therefore culture is a national acquisition.”
He then said "Culture can turn into a tool for power and fade into political currents. But with the morale of resistance that we know of the Iranian people that will not happen, because the Iranian people stood and forced the state into Constitution.”
"When poverty reigns people will sure fall apart from culture, but in the end culture is the result of people’s resistance,” he further said.
