TEHRAN, Oct. 6 (MNA) – The Jewish representative in the Parliament of Iran asked believers of all religions to stand up against destruction of mosques.

According to the Center of Supervision on Mosques Affairs, Siamak Moreh Sedgh, the Iranian Jewish MP emphasized the significance and sacredness of all kinds of holy places, saying “all divine temples are the center of God’s attention. There is no difference between a church, temple or mosque. All of them are places of worship.”

“Mosques are the best element for unity in Muslim World but have fallen into the hands of terrorist groups and are being destructed,” he added.

“I personally respect followers of all religions and wish them success. Many of holy places of Muslim, Christian and Jewish people had come under attack and this matter has provoked the anger of all believers. Unfortunately, today we are also witnessing the destruction of mosques in the Muslim World.”

MP Moreh Sedgh underscored the significance of cultural and religious heritages and said, “all of us have the responsibility to protect religious holy sites."

The Jewish minority MP further added that while mosques are not considered as holy places for all, yet it is the duty of believers of all religions to respect Muslims values.
