Iran’s Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi is the chairman of the conference, and Grand Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani is the gathering’s scientific secretary.
Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi said during the opening ceremony that the gathering is aimed at finding ways to counter the threat of Takfiri ideology and extremism.
He said Takfiris harm both Islam and the human society, adding that work must be done in order to root out the extremist ideology of the Takfiris.
The Iranian cleric also stated that Takfiri militants are damaging the image of Islam by committing crimes in the name of Islam. He condemned the atrocities of Takfiri groups and said such heinous crimes have nothing to do with Islam.
Takfiris have sought to introduce Islam as the “religion of violence,” he said, adding that the true nature of Takfiris should be introduced to the world by Islamic scholars
