“This year, the
celebrations of the Ten Days of Munificence seemed different in Mashhad; this
is because the holy city of Mashhad has been chosen as the Cultural Capital of
the Islamic world” said Alireza Rashidian.
“The coincidence of
these two matters, plus the restart of dispatching pilgrims to Beytollah Al
Haram, casts a novel look from the centrality of Imam Reza noble source to the
Islamic world, and now what we need most is the return to Towhid (monotheism),
unity, empathy and alliance” he added.
Khorasan Razavi Governor talked about the
supreme leader’s speeches and emphasized that “we should be the propagators of
unity, just as Imam Reza (A.S.) emphasized this fact throughout his rich life.”
“This year we held
cultural activities of Razavi festival in more than 70 spots around the world,
and we increased our activities by 80%. Also, we had an 87% increase in the
works sent to the festival, which is another sign of the growth of this foundation”
