Iran:Old Ayatollah

Mohammad Ali Abtahi, blogger and reformist politician says there is a problem that old officials do not retire. He reports about old Ayatollah Meshkini's,the head of the Assembly of Experts, last talk in the Assembly of Experts which is the most supreme governmental institution.Meshkini talked about the preference of lunar calendar over solar calendar and that human being is superior to animal since animals take their heads toward their food but human being takes the food toward his mouth. Abtahi adds If Mr. Mehskini who is badly sick and we hope he recovers soon had been retired, neither his religious and scientific background would be harmed nor the religious principles and thoughts of the young people.
