Foolad Shahr, Jan. 3, 2011
Suppressive forces attacked the house of one of the Gonabadi Dervishes in Foolad Shahr at 10:30 am on Monday Jan. 3 and arrested their Sheikh, Mr. Seyyed Morteza Mahjoobi along with five of his comrades and transferred them to Isfahan’s Central Prison. During the raid they beat all those in the house including the ladies and injured some.
Hearing the news, his supporters from Isfahan and other nearby townships gathered in protest in front of the prison. The suppressive forces drew guns at them in an attempt to disperse them, but they resisted and stayed put.
After 5 hours of resistance, prison officials had to free the Shiekh and his son. But others who were arrested are still in prison and their supporters are still going to join the protest gathering in front of the prison.
