President Raisi made the comment at the closing ceremony of the 39th International Quran Competitions that kicked off in the Iranian capital Tehran on February 18, 2023.
He said that enemies insult Quran to cover up their defeat caused by the holy book, stressing that the desecration of the Prophet Mohammad and the holy Quran is actually an insult to humanity and freedom.
A society built on Quranic rules stands on its own feet, while neither being cruel nor accepting cruelty, the president said.
Enemies do not approve of such a society and attempt to destroy it, he noted, stressing that they have failed in their attempts.
Raisi also said that paying attention to the holy Quran and its teachings is the secret behind unity and sovereignty of the Islamic society.
