Democratic Republic of Iran جمهوری دموکراتیک ایران

The Only Way Forward

پاسخ آيت الله دستغيب به نامه موسوی و کروبی / Ayatollah Dastgheib’s letter in response to Mousavi and Karroubi’s letter to Marajeh


August 12, 2010 – Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali-Mohammad Dastgheib in response to the letter by Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi in which they urged  senior religious figures to get involved and react to the wrong doings of the ruling powers and especially the false and shameful accusations of Ahmad Janati, the appointed chairman of the Guardian Council, in claiming that the Green leaders have received one billion dollars from the US government, through the Saudi’s, and were supposed to receive fifty billion more if they overthrow the system, called on the ruling powers to have mercy on the oppressed people of Iran, return to the constitution, release all the political prisoners and apologize to them, and hold free and democratic election without the biased meddling of the Guardian Council or any other authority.

The full text of the response of Grand Ayatollah Dastgheib is as follows:

In the name of God, The Compassionate and The Merciful

To the honorable Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi

After greetings, I must mention that even if there would have been a document reported against you, from religious and rational points of views, it is not allowed to be announced  in public and publicize it; because it would cause embarrassment for the system in the eyes of the world and is like executing a sentence even before the crime was proven, let alone, that you are fully clean from such accusations. I hope that the ruling powers would show mercy to the oppressed people, return to the constitution, release [political] prisoners and apologize to them, hold democratic elections without the biased meddling of the Guardian Council or any other authority, and instead of insisting on untrue issues, seek true freedom for the people, use the country’s resources to build factories and create real jobs for the people, do not insist so strongly on the ideas and views of a minority secretly and publicly, address people with respect, honesty and kindness , consider God [in their actions] so that the Islamic Republic would not go off-course more than this and encourage people to have faith in Islam with their good words and deeds.

Seyyed Ali-Mohammad Dastgheib
