Ayatollah Ahmad Allamalhoda said in his Friday sermons in Mashhad "If people’s religious demands are not gratified, they will be disillusioned, like the Egyptians were. The current created in the Egyptian revolution must teach a lesson to our officials.”
He added "In Egypt people handed their affairs to an Islamic party. But this party acted against Islam, therefore people were disillusioned with their revolution, because a group came up under the name of Islam only to trespass it. That is a lesson for us.”
Allamalhoda asserted "Politicians must take notice that one cannot trespass and overlook principals in the name of political event. Officials and politicians in every administration must pay attention to the fact and take a lesson from the Egypt happenings.”
The Ayatollah also provided comments on recent changes in Egypt and said "A terrible situation has come to exist in Egypt. We are much worried about the situation, because a group came up under the name of Islam and then turned their backs to Islam, only to disillusion the people with any other Islamic group that would have come up in the future.”
He Mashhad Friday preacher stressed the need for political figures in Iran to take the Egyptian changes as a lesson.
