Hojat-ol-Islam Ahmad Moshref said there is need to improving and updating the way Quranic activities are carried out, given the developments in different aspects of the society.
Quranic programs should be dynamic and the needs of culture and society should be taken into account when implementing them, he said.
The cleric noted that Quranic programs in the country have developed quantitatively over the past years, which is very useful for the society, but added that Quranic officials should also work to improve the quality of such programs by monitoring and considering the cultural and social needs.
He added that Quranic programs should become more localized to attract the people.
For example, he said, the style of Quran recitation in Iran has been taken from Egyptian qaris while this special style is popular with a certain group of people not everyone.
As a successful instance of localization, he referred to holding sessions of Tarteel recitation of the Quran in mosques and holy shrines during Ramadan, saying such programs have been received well in the country.
