Iran, Aug. 12, 2019 - A video has gone viral in Iran showing a young man in Tehran, the capital of Iran, responding to repressive measures by a state security guard harassing a pedestrian.
On Sunday afternoon in the vicinity of the famous Vali-Asl Square in Tehran, a repressive state security agent approaches a young man who was walking down the street.
The agent starts to harass the man accusing him of “hanging around.” The young man, as shown in the video footage, resists and reacts vigorously to the agent who had drawn his baton to attack him.
The state security forces found the young man, had him arrested and placed under torture following the upload of the video on social media.
The regime in Iran is known for its atrocious record of human rights violations. United Nations human rights bodies have condemned the Iranian regime on 65 occasions.
The reason for those condemnations is the violation of basic human rights (especially of minorities), executions, brutal punishments such as amputation and flogging, and degrading behavior with prisoners.
These brutal methods started from the days of the regime's coming to power.
Khomeini, 24 August 1979 stressed, "We suppress [the MEK]."
The regime has created more than 70 methods of torture, including severing hands and feet, gouging eyes, pressing prisoners’ heads with the press, and rape (especially against women).
Ayatollah Montazeri, Khomeini's heir apparent said on October 9, 1986: “Do you know many were killed under torture by interrogators? Do you know many prisoners were blinded, deafened, paralyzed or suffer chronic pains due to severe torture?”
The regime created cage-like cells, where prisoners were kept for as long as 7 months.
The regime executed 120,000 political prisoners, including even 13-year-old teenagers
Ayatollah Montazeri: “Execution of 13- or 14-year-old girls is horrifying.”
Mollahassani, Khomeini's representative in Urmia, said on December 23, 2000: “[Khomeini] said: If the prisoners are even one million, I will order to open fire on them and massacre them in one night."
Under Khomeini's orders, prison guard extracted prisoners' blood before executing them.
In 1988, Khomeini ordered, "Those who insist on their views in support of the MEK are enemies of God and are condemned to death."
Subsequently, the regime executed more than 30,000 prisoners in less than two months.
The unbelievable scale of executions and brutal tortures in Kahrizak prison in 2009 and arrest of more than 7,000 individuals during the 2017-2018 uprisings (reported by Amnesty Intl) manifest the continuation of these crimes after 40 years.
These crimes will continue until the day of the regime is overthrown. Because it cannot survive without violating human rights.
