here is the problem of western propaganda, in its excess it forgets how to balance form and substance this article, as the “foreign policy” article suggests picked up ridiculousness and gave it Ali Khamenei’s picture (the article is not about him) labelled it islamic scholasticism and defaced Islam. Please note verbosity:
“Islamic scholars are prepared to answer questions and issue fatwas on almost any realm of modern life. Sometimes, it can get a little kinky.”
Instead of identifying the difference bw “following of regular muslims” and “fanaticism of taliban” the foregn policy picks the ridiculousness of some obscure mullah, a gillani! discrediting all Muslim scholasticism of Iran! terrible propaganda!
