The Tenth Anniversary of Suppression of Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi and his Supporters

To the attention of honorable nations in the world,
Another year has passed - and once again the second half of the month of October reminds us of how Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi’s house was aggressed by the regime’s armed forces, leading to his arrest and that of his family and nearly a thousand of his supporters. A new crime is taking shape at this time, which will compromise history, freedom of thought, speech and expression for ever; and Inquisitions and interrogations of religious beliefs and the implementation of religious based monopolies will be harshly felt by all the oppressed people of Iran and the intellectuals of the world; and it is feared that freedom fighters and those who fight for justice and humanity will become victims of secret agreements signed by world powers.

Ayatollah Hossein Kazameini Boroujerdi has been held in Evin prison since his arrest in 2006. He is 56 years old.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi rejects the principle of political leadership by the clergy, a central feature of Iran’s constitution. He advocates the removal of religion from the political basis of the state. He publicly challenged the regime’s theological doctrine—promulgated by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in the early days of the Islamic Revolution of 1979—that only an Islamic jurist can rule the country. Mr. Boroujerdi instead supports the traditional Shiite view that religious leaders should stay out of politics and preach their messages to the faithful in mosques. Since 1994 he has been summoned repeatedly before the Special Court for the Clergy, and detained in Evin and other prisons.
He is the subject of an Amnesty International Urgent Action.

To the Attention of my Dear Representatives and Wonderful Attorneys

With greetings and respect and wishes of increasing success,
As you are aware, I have been at the service of religion, minus politics, since twenty years now, at the beginning of which, due to my independent religious thoughts and opinions, I was imprisoned at the secret prison of Towhid, which is located next to the central post office, and was tortured with hideous devices, destined for a physical and mental breakdown; and fourteen years before that, following a non-political monotheistic publication, I was also imprisoned for a few months in ward 209 of the Ministry of Intelligence, and was subjected to harassment and persecution. Also, during these nine years, as a defender of human rights, I have experienced all kinds of torment to the point that I have lost all of my health, and have no hope to continue my life – my legs are becoming paralyzed, my eyes are becoming blind, my lungs are in danger of failing, my heart is on a path to a heart attack, and my brain is bringing me closer to death. Nine years - every second of which has been accompanied by a mountain of excruciating pressures.
