Following the inhuman attacks by pro-government militias and Basij thugs on Karroubis’ residence, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard visited Mehdi Karroubi and Fatemeh Karroubi at Karroubi’s home and comforted them.
According to SahamNews in this meeting which was to comfort Mehdi Karroubi and his wife, Fatemeh Karroubi, following the attacks by pro-government plain-clothes militias and Basij thugs on their residence, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard first toured the building and visited the damage made by plain-clothes thugs.
In this meeting Fatemeh Karroubi while welcoming Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard called the recent attacks of the plain-clothes thugs barbaric and inhuman and added: “Unfortunately these individuals without having any respect for the people’s rights and without having any respect for the sanctity of the holy nights of Qadr, vandalized properties, chanted curse words and violated the rights of the citizens and neighbors to the point that they forcefully took off a Muslim woman’s veil!” Fatemeh Karroubi added: “I hope that we never witness such behaviors in the history of this revolution ever again”
Mir Hossein Mousavi also by expressing sorrow for the events that happened on the holy Qadr nights said: “The fact that these individuals don’t respect the sanctity of these nights and commited such hideous actions, is a proof that they are alien and unfamiliar with Islam’s principles. They first vandalize and violate people’s rights and few minutes later hold prayer rituals! This by itself is a sign of dichotomy in [their] behaviors and beliefs.”
Mehdi Karroubi in this meeting while welcoming and thanking Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard, gave a report of the events that had happened in the five nights of attack on his residence.
It is noteworthy to mention that on the morning of the day that the attacks on Mehdi Karroubi’s residence escalated, Mir Hossein Mousavi in a phone call to Mehdi Karroubi announced his readiness to come to Karroubi’s residence and be present beside him in support.
