SHAFAQNA – In order to bring you, our readers, closer to realities and truths, Shafaqna will conduct a series of exclusive podcast interviews with renown political analysts politicians, officials, religious leaders, and academics.
As always our aim is simple – knowledge.
In a world run, and based on falsehood, Truth has become somewhat of a rare commodity – still, we ought to seek what has been dissimulated as to rise truly free.
As Imam Ali said: “Ask in order to understand, and do not ask in order to find fault, for surely the ignorant man who wants to learn resembles a man of knowledge, and surely a man of knowledge who wants to be difficult resembles an ignorant man who wants to find fault.”
Following is the interview Catherine Shakdam, director of programs for the Shafaqna Institute of Middle Eastern Studies conducted with Professor Mohammad Marandi from Tehran University. A prominent Iranian academic, political analyst and an expert on American studies and postcolonial literature, Prof. Marandi is well-known for his political insight and his academic contributions.
