He presented his views clearly in his books, interviews and numerous lectures and took strong stance against the views that were not in agreement with the Islamic belief system. Hence, he was subjected to allegations by his opponents, such as, he was accused of believing in religious dictatorship, who believes people only have the duty to obey the Wali al-faqih and that’s it.
