Nourizad criticizes Khamenei again in letter

RadioZamaneh – Mohammad Nourizad, detained Iranian journalist and filmmaker wrote another letter from behind the bars criticizing the statements of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei last Friday at the tomb of the late founder of Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khomeini.

Nourizad writes that the leader has distanced himself from the “path and ideals of the Imam (Khomeini)” and rather than “negotiating with the people”, he has taken to supporting an “imbalanced” individual.

In the letter addressed to the grandson of the late Ayatollah Khomeini, Hassan Khomeini, Nourizad expresses concern that at the ceremony marking the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, the current Supreme Leader chose to sidle with the “president and his gang” rather than say “fatherly words” that could abate the “fires of sedition.”

Last Friday a ceremony marking the death of Ayatollah Khomeini was held at the tomb of the late Islamic Republic leader. The speech of Hassan Khomeini, left unfinished due to fierce interruption by pro-Ahamdinejad hecklers, was followed by the Supreme Leader’s sermon condemning opposition leaders, MirHosein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, and implicitly threatening them with execution.

Mohammad Nourizad was arrested in the post-election turmoil for writing critical letters to Ayatollah Khamenei and he has been sentenced to over three years in prison.

Nourizad has written more letters from behind the bars decrying the failure of the Islamic Republic’s justice system and condemning the mistreatment of prisoners and protesters in the post-election events.
