Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
I feel honoured to give this opening speech in front of distinguished dignitaries and honourable brothers and Sisters. May Allah reward you for sparing your time to grace this occasion of formal opening of the office of my father, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
After the Zaria massacre of 2015, in which as you already know, more than a thousand innocent men, women and children were slaughtered in broad daylight, some sad occurrences happened whereby, wrong informations are being circulated, to the extent that some even tried to change the movement’s struggle to something other than what it is and twist the aim of the Islamic movement.
It is for this reason that my father seek to have an office which will represent the real aim and ideology of the Islamic movement.
The Honourable Prof M. H. Shojaee Fard is an old and trusted acquaintance of my father. It is for this reason that he was requested to work towards securing an office for my father.
My father, spoke to Prof M. H. Shojaee Fard himself months back, at the time when he was allowed a phone for communication. And luckily I and my sisters were in Nigeria at the beginning of Ramadan and we spent almost 2 months with our parents in the house they were detained in. We received the good news that the office was secured before we went to stay with them and informed our father about it and he was very pleased.
He requested us to give his special thanks to Ostan Quds Razavi, and the head of the Haram Ayatullah Sayyid Ra’isi in particular and all those good people that assisted in securing the office. He also sends his gratitude to Prof M. H. Shojaee Fard for his unrelenting efforts and also appoints him as his representative here in the Islamic Republic of Iran and a member of international affairs committee.
He said his choice of the Professor is because of his revolutionary stance and because the Professor is well aware of the true aim of the Islamic movement.
He appointed Brother Hasan Bala as the Director of the office.
He said he hopes this office will promote the true understanding of the movement’s struggle to this country and hopefully the world at large.
It is an honour to us from Allah subhahu wa Ta’ala, that my father became the source of spreading the message of Ahlil Bait
Which was as a result of the influence of imam Khomeini and now under the leadership of Ayatullah Sayyid Ali Khamenei.
