The Islamic Republic of Iran – A Review

It has been well over 30 years since Iran’s “hijacked” revolution and the establishment of the Ayatollah Kingdom where the Mullahs rule with an iron fist. Like all other so-called Islamic Republics and Democracies the constitution in Iran guarantees well versed phrases such as the freedom of speech, freedom of association, gender equality, freedom of belief, freedom of movement and many more freedoms but the same constitutions also categorically state and emphasize that “all laws and regulations must conform to the principles of Islam”. Hypocrisy? Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan beg to differ.

A glimpse of the achievements of the Islamic Republic of Iran is as follows:

  • Persecution, execution and imprisoning of LGBT

Execution of Kurds after failed uprising in Irani Kurdistan

  • Persecution of Afghan refugees and massacre of thousands [pdf] of them in the concentration camps of Tal-e Siyah (Black Hill) and Sang-e Sefid (White Stone)

Wrongly described as 22 years old to make way for the execution of 16 year old Atefah Sahaaleh

  • Persecution and execution of academics. usually under the notorious Islamic Penal code act Mofsed fil arz (corruption on earth)
  • Fraudulent elections and subsequent suppression of mass public protest in the latest chapter of dissent in Iran under the Green movement.
  • Summary execution and awarding of death penalty to over 3000 Afghans, mostly refugees.
  • … and many more.
