The Only Way Forward

آیت الله دستغیب در اعتراض به روند حاکم بر مجلس خبرگان در این اجلاسیه حاضر نشد / Ayatollah Dastgheib does not attend Experts Assembly in protest


Grand Ayatollah Dastgheib, senior religious figure and representative of the people of Shiraz in the Assembly of Experts and critic of the government, in protest to the current trend and the performance of the Assembly of Experts did not attend the latest session of the assembly.

According to the constitution the Assembly of Experts is responsible for overseeing the performance of the supreme leader, dismissing the supreme leader at anytime if he does not meet the qualifications and choosing a new supreme leader.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Grand Ayatollah Dastgheib in his sermons which he delivered in the Ghoba mosque in the city of Shiraz repeatedly warned the authorities to come back to the people and stop the oppression and this intrigued the hardliners including the representative of the supreme leader in the Shiraz branch of the Revolutionary Guards to organize attacks by Basij militias and plain-clothes thugs on Qoba mosque.

In these attacks many worshippers were brutally injured and many have been arrested by the security forces while the attackers disgraced the sanctity of the mosque in the holy month of Ramadan in full safety.

Few days prior to the beginning of the latest session of the Assembly of Experts, Grand Ayatollah Dastgheib in an open letter to the fellow members of the assembly urged them to commit to their true responsibility and do their job properly and defend the rightful demands of the people as he was certain that just like the previous session of the assembly most of the members who themselves are the representatives of the supreme leader would prevent Grand Ayatollah Dastgheib to deliver his speech in the session and continue a campaign against him trying to question his qualifications and dismiss him from the membership of the assembly which he earned through people’s votes!
