Molovi Abd ul-Samad Sadati, Friday preacher and head of the Zangian seminary of Islamic schools of Saravan, Sistan and Baluchestan providing comments on the freedom of four Iranian border guards from Jaish ul-Adl custody inside Pakistan said "We hope that the fifth person whose status is not really clear yet is sound and that he will get home safe.”
"Throughout the history of the revolution, the state has never ransomed any terrorist group, neither in this latest instant. To hold negotiations with such groups is heresy,” Sadati stated.
The clergyman repudiated Jaish ul-Adl claiming that their actions are in support of the Sunni minority and said "Such acts are in no way related to the Sunni or Shiite or Baluch. The Sunni comprises a great community in Iran who have surely not chosen these people as their representatives to do terrorist acts. The entire Sunni community condemns such actions.”
