     hungry made so by money and power.

o The only art acceptable to the Qur'an is the art that gives polish to the pure

      Islam of Muhammad (s), to the Islam of the Imams of Guidance ('a), the

      Islam of the suffering poor, and to the Islam of history's barefooted,

lashed by bitter deprivations.

      culture. We are in favor of motion picture programs that are educative and

      benefit the wholesome, ethical and scientific growth of the society.

o We are not opposed to the cinema; we are opposed to the center of


o Art in its rightful place is the embodiment of leech-like persons who take

     pleasure in sucking the blood of the true Islamic culture, the culture of

     justice and serenity.
