Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
Unfortunately a couple of days ago some of the enemies of Islam and in particular Shi'a to, whom the accomplishments of Islam and Shi'a is not tolerable anymore, started a new agenda which gets extended one day after another that is to insult the Holy Imams (a).
Recently a clip is put on the internet in which a well-known mercenary singer engages in insulting and swearing at our Holy Imam "Imam Ali al-Naqi (a). Please enlighten us with your opinion on this issue.
Whatsoever insult toward the lofty position of Imams (a) is regarded as blasphemy and entails Irtidad in case the insulter is Muslim and if it is not done by a Muslim still it is as if one insults the holy prophet (s). The punishment for such people is so intensive in Islam.
May Allah (swt) protect the Muslims, specially the followers of Ahlulbait from the vicious acts of their enemies.
Allah's mercy be upon you
