Tehran, YJC. Clergy believes that “the country needs someone like Navab Safavi to extinguish Reform newspapers.”

In an interview with news website Nedaye Enghelab, Hojjatoleslam Jafar Shojouni, member of the Society of the Combatant Clergy said regarding the criticisms by Reform newspapers directed at the Ahmadinejad administration "All this barrage comes from joblessness. The Ahmadinejad administration worked very well for 5 years and was not so bad in the 3 years that followed.”

"In a historic act, Ahmadinejad took his entire cabinet to the poorest regions of the country and launched big things like the Mehr Housing and the subsidies,” he asserted.

Shoujouni added "Ahmadinejad considered some of his friends, which were criminals, as his red lines. Of course such problems must be addressed by the judiciary and security systems in the future and not by some journalists.”

He also pointed to Hassan Rouhani’s political affiliation and said "The fact that they say Rouhani is a Refromist is a mistake and a big like. Rouhani is a traditional Principalist from the Society of the Combatant Clergy and he is a clergyman himself.”

"The reformists betrayed the system and broke limits and in the 6th Majlis they struck and took refuge and resigned together,” he exclaimed.

"The Reform Front tries to deprive the system of Imam Khomeini and the Leader. What good have the Clergy Association and Participation Front done for the system? God damn them! Really, they put a spoke in the system’s wheel,” Shojouni said. 
"At this time we need someone like Navab Safavi to uproot some of the Reform newspapers and to break the stem of those newspapers that are financially supported from abroad. The fact that there is no one like Navaf Safavi is because there is no one to administer commanding the good and prohibiting the evil,” the clergyman went on.

He added "Some committed so many crimes in the course of the sedition. Now they are after getting positions in the Rouhani administration by writing columns for chain newspapers.”
