Iran: Letter from Hussein Boroujerdi, Political Prisoner in Evin Prison



by Hussein Boroujerdi


Translated by Banafsheh Zand

"The fact is that if the God-hating and blasphemous regime's elite do not act violently, those who oppose them and their revolution, and their so-called Republic, would pour out into the streets so that the people of the world could get a good look at the hidden realities inside this ravaged country." — Hussein Boroujerdi, January 2014

The Shah's rule so saturated society with faith and ignited the passion for the 'Shia family' (Ahl al-Bayt) among people, that they gambled everything they had on the Shia authority. Keeping one's faith became the price of the whims and perversities of the power-grabbing clergy who were and are the main reason for the downfall of religious values. And now the religion of the rulers has emptied the hearts of the people from any will to be fraudulent clerics, and has filled them with hatred, revenge, and contempt for anything and everything that smacks of Islam. As a result of the monarchic Mullahs' ceaseless lies and the teflon accusations of the regime-run media, we have a country whose problems and troubles are unprecedented and do not exist anywhere else in the world.

Today, the gangs of the authoritarian regime's insiders celebrate their anniversary; they gather around a sumptuous table with full and brimming pockets and then kick up their heels and dance on the corpses of innocent peasants and a crushed nation. Expenses for the coronation ceremonies held for the supreme leader and plans for the celebrations of the revolution… are a dagger which tears at ill-fated Iranians year after year. Now I ask the world, does that somehow prove this regime's legitimacy?

The murdering rulers claim that every citizen of our country is a follower and fan of their revolution. But we say that the overwhelming majority of the children of this land systematically oppose political Islam. As proof, the December 30th, 2013 (9th of the month of Dey, 1392) rally, which cost large sums of money, was a show of force by the regime's own supporters; however when the regime forces turned up in Palestine Square in Tehran and saw the embarrassingly thin turnout and real lack of support, the Basiji commander, Mohammad-Reza Naghdi, walked out for fear of being discredited. The fact is that if the God-hating and blasphemous regime's elite do not act violently, those who oppose them and their revolution, and their so-called Republic, would pour out into the streets so that the people of the world could get a good look at the hidden realities inside this ravaged country.
