I wrote this article in the days the Holy Quran burnt but I had to edit it for better English and removing mistakes but it remained in Drafts and I forgot to publish it! With apologizes ..
Today in Tehran in front of a church, christian people of our city invited Muslim people to demonstrate together against burning Quran , Taking Quran over the heads and chanting against who burn and insults against the path of the prophets. Looking at such events shows if a named-human or two or many decided to burn Quran we would have a very different mirror on the other side of the world. They should consider the effects of their works turns inverse in spite of their plans.
We would have some pictures from this kind demonstration in this post, The scene you will see in the pictures is totally represented by this church in Tehran and they pose the pictures of two Islamic Revolution leaders around the scene to express their views about this religious revoultion. The Iranian Christians was a part of defense against Saddam-West war against the Islamic Revolution and they made their certain brilliant rule in frontier lines of war step by step in whole levels of war to defend their country and their dignity against the invasion. They have many common beliefs in the culture in compare with Iranian Muslim people which is about 98% of Iran’s population. Even they come and participate in the anniversary of Ashoura for Shia third Imam in Moharram month. This shows the brotherhood between the people of this country against the strange illogical moves internally or of abroad.
Let’s see the pictures:
Bazaar is an ancient concept in Iranian culture. The marketplace and the economic heart of many cities in Mideast is named Bazaar.
In a Muslim society “Bazaar” has its special specifications, Like everything it is merged by ethics and morality. A shopkeeper knows himself working for Allah and for the people before he works for his interests and the money in his pocket. In base concepts of an Islamic Bazaar there is many stories of chivalry between businessmen to gift benefit to others. Bazaar businessmen are following the Islamic teachings.In such environment it’s very usual for a shopkeeper to forward a customer to other shop when he knows the other shop has not made any interest in the business for day. Many of bigger shops and businessmen stop selling their products when they feel it’s enough for the day and forward more people to purchase goods from others.
Entering the modernism age, this Bazaar did not succeed to run away from materialistic concepts through and through, but still there is many properties remained from ancient Bazaar.
One of these remained frankly properties of Bazaar is its deep connection to social and political issues. Shopkeepers feel responsibility to society and when an issue happens they hand-off the business and close their shops as a protest. One of the main arms of Islamic Revolution was Bazaar. In many situations the dictatorship government of Shah was submitted to people’s will to prevent the suspension of the economics behalf Bazaar. The protest was not just because of finances and interests but mainly was for massive issues of the country. For example if Shah government had been getting an illegal and illogical interest to his master government U.S. as a mere political event, The bazaar was one of firstly societies to interfere and prevent the government to do faults by closing the shops.
After Islamic Revolution the Bazaar had not experienced the same social and political campaigns because the government is based on the people votes. But these days new campaigns is running about international issues as a symbol of national solidarity about any issue. Last week the Bazaar closed for a day to show its protest against who burnt Holy Quran in U.S and to revere Quran. This move has a clear message for the U.S. government that this nation is very ready to confront any under-plot with whole body of Economics, Buisines, Culture, Religion and so on.
