SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Grand Shi'a cleric warned against ignoring Fiq'h (religious jurisprudence) in assembling human rights and highlighted justice among the principles maintained in human rights.
Ayatollah Abdullah Javadi Amoli, in the first international conference of Fiq'h and Law held in Qom said the articles of Iran's constitution are derived from Sunnah (lifestyle of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and logic.
He said the world is facing two dangers : firstly, a law without references has no scientific background and therefore, human rights and the constitution in countries that are not based on Fiq'h have no scientific background.
He said convening the human rights without any reference to Fiq'h is a big danger and added, "Among the human rights principles, independence, justice, peaceful coexistence, ecology and healthy environment which are used to run the United Nations (UN), justice is the most important.
"The reason that human rights claimants accuse Hezbollah of terrorism is that they only recognize what they interpret as justice and that is a big danger" said the Shia cleric on the necessity of maintaining Fiq'h in assembling human rights.
According to the cleric, Islam does not comprise anything on the ruling of one person over the masses of people but the only system which is accepted by God Almighty and that no agent can rule the people but the religion of God Almighty.
