Following Ayatollah Dastgheib’s speech at Ghoba Mosque in the city of Shiraz criticizing the ruling powers for oppressing the people, and the extensive coverage of this speech in the media, today (Wednesday) around 2:30 AM local time, a group of bikers hiding their faces in helmets threw paint on the door of his Excellency’s residence and immediately fled the scene.
The footage of the security cameras reveals that these were the same group who also threw paint on his Excellency’s office sign. Ayatollah Dastgheib is a member of the Assembly of Experts and one of the most respected Marajeh (the highest ranking religious leader who are qualified to interpret Islamic rules and issue Fatwa’s) and one of the well-known supporters of the Green Movement of the Iranian people.
Recentl, following the Ayatollah’s sermon condemning the actions of the government, a group of plain clothed militia gathered in front of the governor’s office and protested to Dastgheib’s speech. Despite the fact that they had no permission to hold this gathering, unlike the protest of millions of ordinary citizens who opposed the coup election and were brutally beaten and killed by the government and Basij, this protest ended with the speech of the governor in support of the plain clothed militia and the condemnation of his Excellency’s criticisms; ironically the governor suggested to the great Marjah to ask for God’s and people’s forgiveness for his the comments he made against the actions of the ruling powers!
