Non-Shiite Muslims and the Party of People

The second Article of the party’s mission statement is: “Strengthening the religion of Islam, endorsing and strengthening the Constitution and constitutional monarchy, and making efforts to safeguard all the anticipated freedoms within the Constitution.” The attention of the party’s founders to the fact that the strengthening of religion is not limited to the Twelver Shiism sect, makes it possible for other non-Shi’ite Muslims to be [interested in] collaborating with this party.

The reference to the “anticipated freedoms” in the Constitution, shows that the People’s Party also believes in the freedom of religion.
