In view of sympathizing with my compatriots who are entangled in violence, I have started a hunger strike

I am writing this aggressive note against the political Islam, from my individual cell, which has inhuman conditions, and I am presenting it to the realm of contemporary history, through a nationalistic member of the military, who is God loving and is sensitive towards people.   
In order to sympathize with my oppressed compatriots who under the banner of “enjoin good and forbid evil”, are caught in a circle of violence by the government pressure apparatus, I am starting a hunger strike.

Should Be the Interpretation of Religion Contrary to the Thinking of Political Islam Punished by Death?

I am writing this letter from my quarantined cell, which will be sent to the outside of my horrible jail by those entangled in a religious dictatorship: I do not know who will read these painful lines, but I know that he/she has delicate feelings and divine nerves. My fellowmen, under the auspices of a tyrannical regime, one cannot expect anything but distress, sorrow and grief –was the oppressed Iranian nation granted anything else other than this during the past thirty-five years? What were the initial promises of the revolution, and in what direction are we headed now – whatever they said, they proved the contrary with their actions. Those who one day in the future will look at the present history of Iran will be amazed to see this kind of dishonesty and will be even more surprised to see this kind of politics! They talk about Iran – so am I not an Iranian? For what kind of a crime am I being tortured? In the name of Islam they interfere in the affairs of all countries, and they allow themselves to export the massive capitals of this country to be used for violence and cruelties – am I not a Muslim, who since nine years is going through the persecution and torture of those claiming the rule of Islam?
