US seeking to eliminate signs of Islamic, human civilization: Iranian official

US seeking to eliminate signs of Islamic, human civilization: Iranian official
IRAN  - Chief of the Iranian Judiciary’s Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani deplored the US government’s crimes against Muslims and said Washington is seeking to remove every trace of Islamic and human civilization.

"Americans are seeking to eliminate the traces of human civilization," Larijani said, addressing an international meeting on "the American version of human rights".

"They (the Americans) did this in Syria and Iraq, and even destroyed pre-Islamic works," he said, adding that today, Yemen, which is one of the centers of Islamic civilization, has been subject to severe aggression backed by the US.

The official further touched upon that American version of human rights and said it has "different layers", including crimes and moves to deprive nations of their civil rights.

Larijani went on to say that in order to show the true face of American version of human rights, document and monitoring centers should be established like those in Palestine.

Last month, the Iranian Parliament concluded a report on the US government's violation of human rights, both inside and outside the United States.

Iran's International Human Rights Center has already been compiling annual reports on human rights violations in the United States.

Violation of prisoners' rights, breach of privacy rights, violation of the rights of minorities, breaches of immigrants' rights, racial discrimination, violation of children's rights, violation of freedom of speech, and sexual violence against women in the US society have been among the issues raised in the annual reports.

The United States is internationally criticized for politicizing the issue of human rights and is known as one of the major self-proclaimed defenders of human rights.

Excessive use of force by the US police against protesters, people of color in particular, are among the thorny issues staining the country's rights record.
