Kazem Jalali, Head of the Islamic Parliament of Iran Research Center (IPIRC) believes that the Daesh terrorist group also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is following in the footsteps of the Taliban.
Speaking to IRNA, he noted that Daesh was established with support of certain regional states and their Western supporters to portray a barbaric and undemocratic image of Islam.
He said such countries carried out the same scenario in Syria under the pretext of democracy and national movements.
Aslo a member of the Parliament Standing Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, Jalali criticized the support of certain regional states as well as UK and France for Daesh and noted that the ISIS interpretation of Islam is against that of the Founder of the Islamic Revolution, the late Imam Khomeini.
Referring to terroristsˈ claims about fighting for democracy in Syria, the official added that terrorism will not bring democracy.
The terrorists will one day turn their guns at their supporters, Jalali added.
Daesh is a Salafi organization affiliated to al-Qaeda founded in Iraq in 2004.
