The declaration of Ayatollah Boroujerdi's followers in Iran and Europe because of continuation of last detention by regime
The big wave of suppression and detention of followers of Ayatollah Boroujerdi, the liberal and pacifist clergyman, during last days is an alarm means increasing the politic of liberal repression in Iran. these inhuman actions that are done in a suffocating and illegal atmosphere and are concordant with spread of execution wave such as dastardly execution of Yaqoub Mehrnahad ,the young Iranian journalist , increase the concerns of Human Rights societies and activists in all of the world and also liberal personalities in religious and anti-democratic government of Iran.
Detention of some followers of Ayatollah Seyed Hosein Kazemeini Boroujerdi, the liberal and opposed to Velayat-faqih clergyman, during last days under the names of: Habib Quvati, Mohammadreza Sadeghi, Majid Alasti, Mehrdad Souri, and Masoud Samavatian has made a deep concern for the followers of the "separation of religion from government" thought and apolitical Islam followers including Ayatollah Boroujerdi's followers.
Nowadays, the modern world knows very well there is no sign of democracy in our country, Iran and dissidence in suffocating government of Iran can even cause to death. Freedom of opinion and speech and Individual freedom are the public demand of Iranian people that have changed into an impossible wish for them.
The government that even doesn't attend to peaceful protest is not proper and efficient for liberal people of Iran.
According to the received news, the detentions wave of Ayatollah Boroujerdi' followers will be continued during coming days. .some of Ayatollah Boroujerdi's followers including Alireza Montazer-Saheb 37-year-old and married , Ali Shahrabi-farahani 33-year-old and married , Ahmad karimian 39-year-old and married, Hasan Harischian 35-year-old and married, and Ali Arbabi 36-year-old and married ,must introduced themselves to special court of clergy ! in order to execution of very long time imprisonments about them.
Noting to the critical economical situation and increasing inflation wave in Iran, detention of these people who all are supporter of their families, is an inhuman action and leads to appear mental and economical pressures for their the families. These people who majority of them have higher education , are eliminated from governmental job and denied permission to all the citizenship rights. The fact of these illegal actions of Tehran regime will be appeared when you know trial process of these people was completely injustice and above-named were sentenced to imprisonment while they were denied permission to lawyer.
It's necessary to mention, repression of Ayatollah boroujerdi's followers began on Oct 2006 further to his protest to intervention of the religion in government and also issue some crude sentences like : execution, stoning and amputation by Iran government on and has continued as yet.
We hereby, in addition to reject the trial process of last detentions, express that the effort and pursuit of all human Rights societies and activists also all international News agencies to stop detention of Ayatollah Boroujerdi's followers and other prisoners for opinion and politic in Iran is a crucial matter to create and spread democracy .
With wish a world full of the justice and freedom for all people
