The closing ceremony  of the 7th Islamic Radios and Televisions Union attended by the head of IRIB, Majid Majidi, the managers of the national media and foreign and Iranian  producers was held in Tehran on Wednesday, May 28, 2014.

In this ceremony, the head of the national media pointed to the great mission and responsibility assigned to the Islamic media and said: this assembly was a small plant but today, it has strong roots in the earth and beautiful branches in the heaven and gives fruits continuously.

Today, the closing ceremony of the 7th Islamic Radios and Televisions Union, the 5th Unity Festival and the 5th Movie Market was held and these programs are the signs of the endeavor, cooperation and coordination among the members of the union, he added.

Pointing to the hegemony world and Islam world as two parts of the world, he added: the world of Islam is a place for gathering of all those who are adherent to the Islamic, divine and humane values and have stood against the world of hegemony leading by the U.S.

We are the Islamic media and our ultimate goal is the dear Islam. Today, the world of hegemony has showed that it is afraid of the developed and peace-seeking Islam which influences hearts and souls of humanity and the hegemonostic powers don’t want Islam to become comprehensive and be disseminated throughout the world; for this reason, today, the mission of propagating the religion of Islam has been assigned to us, the head of IRIB noted.

  He stated that the mission of the great Prophet of Islam (S) is global, adding his character has been the greatest and the most spiritual and everlasting medium in the whole life of humanity; he also said: the existence of the great Prophet of Islam (S) was a medium whose mission was to propagate in the path of Allah.

Stating that if today, we talk about media, we consider some rules, he reminded: the very issue may make us become distant from the main mission, but as Allah says to the great Prophet (S) “Stay steadfast even if everybody abandons you”, we should also consider the very point that the most popular man in the earth is the great Prophet (S), since, he established relationships with all people.    

 Zarqami continued that if media want to penetrate into the society, they should attract the trust of audiences, give them messages and guide them and the very issue should be regarded as the outlines of the media work in the world of Islam.

 Stressing that after 1400 years, the Islamic awakening has happened in the world today, the head of IRIB stated: today, we witness this issue and the Quranic miracles have manifested truly and surely, the holy name of the great Prophet (S) is the best names.

 The mission of media is to disseminate information, provide education and entertain audiences, so, who says Islam opposes such issues whereas, our religion has the best teachings for the growth of humanity, the head of the national media stressed.

According to Zarghami, the criteria for media should be determined and those who produce TV and radio programs should consider what is their goal or in other words, programs should be directed to the goal.

We should declare our messages and reflect the Islamic orders. Today, the hegemony media directs humanity towards the age of ignorance and the very issue opposes the goal of the prophetic mission of Hazret Mohammad (S) as it was to establish the moral virtues and save humanity and women from scorns, he reminded.

 Pointing to the difference between the Islamic TVs and Radios Union and the other media unions in the world, Zarghami said: throughout the world, the media competition is intense, but, such competition and the method of their competition should not affect our union. Our Islamic union has its special purpose and if a medium achieve growth beside us, we won’t get upset, but also, we will become happy sincerely.

  Today, the hegemony develops the thoughts of the ignorance age among people via using the modern means, and we should oppose them, he added.

He knew unity as the base of Islam and stated: in the Shia world, the great religious scholars especially the supreme leader of the Islamic revolution and the late Imam Khomeini (RA) are the flag-bearers of unity. So, we as the media of the Islamic countries should preserve such a unity with full strength, he added.

Touching on the movies produced by the brute, barbaric and non-Muslim terrorists, Zarghami said: undoubtedly, the hegemonistic powers support them and their aim is to stigmatize the religion of Islam.  

In this ceremony, Majid Majid, the director of “Muhammad (S)” movie also said: in this movie, we have tried to show and introduce the mercy of Hazret Muhammad (S) to the world more than any other features of him.

  According to the public relations correspondent of the 7th Islamic Televisions and Radios Union, Majid Majidi stated that his aim of producing the movie “Muhammad (S)” has been to launch a filmmaking movement and announced: the objective behind producing this film was to launch a filmmaking movement and so far, we have felt the mercy of Hazret Muhammad (S) to this movie and we have somehow achieved the desired goal until now.

While producing movies about the divine prophets’ life, the holiness of prophets should be preserved, and we should not show them in such a way that it affects the social atmosphere negatively, this director noted.

    We should consider that in our country, what works have been done to introduce the true Islam and the great Prophet of Islam (S) and see to what extent, our works are in accordance with the Islamic culture, he reminded.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Majidi pointed to the Islamic awakening happening in the region, and said: In the recent years, we witness that people of the region have become aware and they never tolerate tyranny anymore, and they siege the embassies of the foreign countries and the very issue should not be ignored by the cinema of the Islam world.

In the end, the director of “Muhammad (S)” movie noted that the prerequisite to the growth of the world of Islam is to promote the level of the social culture and added: the level of the social culture in the world of Islam should be promoted, so that, the produced cultural works can influence the public opinions of the world.

According to the public relations correspondent of the 7th Islamic Televisions and Radios Union, in the closing ceremony, the selected works of the 5th Unity Festival in various fields were introduced too.

 In the end, Zarghami commemorated the Resistance Day and said: the social movements won’t yield any result without the resistance of people, and the resistance of people always guarantees the continuation and stability
