INA – 6 followers of Ayatollah Boroujerdi ( imprisoned opponent of Velayat-e Faqih) were arrested and transferred to an unknown place on Monday night Oct 8, 2010.
Mr. Mohammad-Reza Sadeghi, Mrs. Maryam Azimi, Tayyebeh Hoseini, Forough Hemat-Yar, Narges Ghafarzadeh and Roya Eraghi are the people who have been arrested for their advocacy of Mr. Boroujerdi. As yet, no clear and explicit charge has been stated about them. It is clear that this illegal arrest is done to put more pressure on Mr. Boroujerdi to end his opposition to Velayat-e Faqih and resign himself to what the regime wants.
It is necessary to say that although Mr. Boroujerdi is at risk of blindness and paralysis due to the severe tortures in prison. He has not abandoned his opinion and will not submit to what the regime wants. He has called the leaders of the regime to have an open debate several times in order to give his reasons for the necessity of the separation of religion from government and prove the illegitimacy of the Islamic Republic regime.
