Navideshahed: Iranian senior cleric, Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi, warns Azeri leaders against any tough anti-Islamic ban saying they will be digging their own graves if they crack down on Shiites.

Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, Iranian jurisprudent warned Azeri leaders over harsh religious bans in the country, saying political borders do not matter when it comes to defending Muslims.

He said, "Policy of the countries is not important since defending the oppressed Muslims is our duty."

"Wherever Muslims are, jurisprudence is there," said the cleric and added that defending Muslims is not subject to their denominations either.

He referred to the crisis in the Middle East and religious bans against Azerbaijan Muslims saying, "Shia Muslims are among the most oppressed."

Professor at Qom Seminary criticized the alliance of the US, Israel and an Arab country and said, "This ominous triangle in league with Wahhabism has challenged the Shia," describing the status of Azerbaijan Shia as the worst one.

He slammed the anti-Shia measures in Azerbaijan and counted their objectives to be confronting hijab, crackdown on Shia figures and preventing publication of Islamic books and added, "Those who hope to uproot Islam are making a big mistake. They are in fact digging their own graves."

The ayatollah also recommended Azeri leaders to free the prisoners warning them against a dangerous outcome for their measures.

He called world Muslims to unity and said, "Those who think jurisprudent interferes in their domestic affairs do not know the culture of jurisprudence," said the cleric.

He reiterated that jurisprudents, like doctors, are without border and that jurisprudence has a place wherever a Muslim lives.
