These events will pass and pride and victory will belong to the Iranian nation. As you witnessed that relying on military trough organizing a bunch of thugs in Basij clothes and some hired individuals, and imposing restrictions for individuals such as myself, Mr. Mousavi, Ms. Rahnavard, members of our families and other political figures and activists, not only caused harm for the totalitarians, but also showed that despite their claims of having control and eliminating the criticizing movement, the movement is still alive and has deep roots in the society and that is why they desperately commit such hopeless acts.”
The chairman of the National Trust party by emphasizing on the fact that one of the most important measures at this time is to promote awareness among the people said: “The government media and website are constantly spreading lies and rumors and if we want to reply to all of the we have to write tens of responses every day. By expressing concern that telling lies and false accusations have become a norm in the society, Mehdi Karroubi stressed: “When it comes to spreading awareness we must most efficiently utilize these very minimum [resources] that we have. Fight with lying and spreading superstitions, which unfortunately we witness the increase of these dangerous trends every day, was not easy and is not easy and every one of us should try in this matter. In this fight the effort of each and every one of us in promoting awareness and spreading information among the people is needed.”
Former speaker of the parliament added: “I am worried about the trend that would make such behaviors, false accusations and lying the norm. For sure these kinds of violent actions, wasting the national revenue in order to prove the lies of some delusional individuals, promoting fallacy in extended measures, attacking the privacy of Grand Ayatollahs and individuals, arrests with phony excuses, the issuance and implementation by the judiciary of heavy sentences for the accused without considering proper legal procedures and other actions that we all witnessed, heard, and felt, will have harmful effect on society.”
Karroubi added: “Unfortunately in such an environment the mental and social security will be eliminated and society will face numerous crises; especially now that people are facing serious problems in their everyday lives and economy, thanks to the world management of these gentlemen (government officials).”
Karroubi continued: “For sure this situation will not last and will not stay as is; and you, the youth, plan for the future with hope and liveliness, because certainly the future belongs to you, the young.”
