He said "The government must adopt a supportive, guiding, and supervisory outlook on cultural issues. The first and foremost step is to create a secure atmosphere for culture and arts.”
Rohani regarded culture and social trauma as one of the most important social and national issues, saying that the very Islamic Revolution happened on cultural grounds most of all.
Rohani said "After 35 years what people do not see in culture is lack of morality. This comes despite our revolution being based on the revolution of light and morality. In our society morality has always been propagated by the major figures of the revolution, but today the propagation has turned in nature to boil down to a mere exaggerated presentation of statistics by the media, that is, people from high official ranks commit slander on the national media, this has first of all great responsibilities in its wake, and secondly, it crushes morality.”
He said "Things being so, the first thing happening would be the revocation of people’s faith in statesmen.”
"Of all possible approaches, decentralization is the best policy under these circumstances. As long as our culture is government-bound problems wont be solved. As long as we are after quantity and statistics things remain as they are,” Rohani asserted.
