After the cancellation of the funeral service for the late Mir Ismail Mousavi, the father of Mir Hossein Mousavi, Ayatollah Amjed was very disappointed with certain conduct that happened at the ceremony. While sympathisizing with Mir Hossein Mousavi and the deceased’s family, he called such conduct weak, illogical and absurd. Ayatollah Amjed also called such conduct as unethical and inconsistent with the laws of Islam.
It is said that the late Mir Ismail Mousavi, who had been bedridden for some time, died on Wednesday April 6 2011. Haj Mir Ismail Mousavi was a reputable merchant and a well-known figure in Khameneh. He settled in south Tehran with his wife, three sons and two daughters in order to succeed in the rice and tea business. Haj Mir Ismail Mousavi was the father of Mir Hossein Mousavi the 79th and last Prime Minister of Iran, and the cousin of the late Haj Sheikh Seyed Javad Khamenei, the father of Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
The late Haj Mir Ismail Mousavi was very familiar with the Qu’ran and in his shop had different books on Quran exegesis on display
