Khamenei’s website has posted a new fatwa issued by the Iranian regime leader providing a sacred position of respect for representatives of the supreme leader, and any opposition against them is considered “not permitted”, according to Farsi media outlets in Iran.
A question posted in Khamenei’s website reads, “If [these representatives] have issued their instructions based on the authority and credibility provided to him by the supreme leader, any opposition against it is considered not permitted.”
Therefore, no one in the world is permitted to disobey Khamenei’s orders or instructions issued by his representatives. This is a method used by autocrats to impose their rule back in the Middle Ages, whereas based on true Islamic and Shiite teachings, the supreme leader himself and his representatives can all be subject to criticism.
