پاسخ مرجع عالیقدر به نامه جمعی از خانواده های زندانیان سیاسی /Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani condemns the illegal imprisonment of Iranian activists


Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani, senior religious figure, in response to the letter by the families of the political prisoners who in protest to the inhuman treatment of the prison guards have gone on hunger strike for more than ten days now, while strongly condemning the illegal imprisonment of the brave and noble men and women of the country and the brutal treatment and their torture in prisons stressed that these behaviors are strongly in contradiction to religious teachings and are illegitimate.

Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani also urged the political prisoners to end their hunger strike since the nation needs these noble assets of the country and is worried about their health condition. In part of his letter, Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani addressed to the ruling powers wrote: “The fact that you have made baseless accusations and by relying on forced confessions that were taken in prison environment and after arrest, which no intellectual would consider these confessions reliable and credible according to the numerous religious narratives, and are degrading a significant number of men and women, should await God’s rage and wrath.”

Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani in another part of his letter emphasized: “I have repeatedly stressed that these kinds of actions are illegal, illegitimate and against religious teachings and no individual has the right to imprison another person for long time because of some accusation and then put pressure on him/her until he/she accepts the accusations.”

 Regarding  news of the  hunger strike of a group of political prisoners in Evin prison in protest to the inhuman treatments by prison authorities, Grand Ayatollah Bayat-Zanjani stated: “Finally according to the received news regarding the hunger strike of some of the political prisoners, I emphasize that the almighty God and the hidden Imam are aware and witness to this matter; and the ultimate goal of these dear ones which is to reach their justice-seeking voice to the outside world has also been achieved largely and there is no need to continue this hunger strike, because the continuation of this hunger strike would have no outcome but being harmful for those individuals who are assents of this country, and it is on them to break their hunger strike.”
