It was with great sadness and regret that I received the bitter news of the martyrdom of the great scholar, the hard work, and an efficient president, Hojjat-ul-Islam Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, and his dear companions.

This unfortunate incident happened during a mission to serve people; The entire tenure of this noble and selfless person, both during the short term of the presidency and before that, was completely spent in non-stop efforts to serve the people, the country, and Islam.

Dear Raisi never felt fatigued. In this tragic incident, the Iranian nation lost a sincere and valuable servant. For him, the goodness and satisfaction of the people, which indicates God's satisfaction, was preferred over everything, so his annoyances from the ingratitude and taunts of some ill-wishers did not prevent him from working day and night to improve affairs.
