Greeting to world peacemakers, I respect to the persons who devoted their valuable life for reforms and also I esteem and reverence the victims of violence and crime, I kiss the lips which express human rights, inside of my cell.
Accept my greeting from my painful cell in Evin prison located in north of Tehran, the capital of Iran. I am spending hard days. Helping peace and cooperation with liberals and Human Rights defenders are all my delights. Only my God is informed on what hardships I have suffered and how I have spent my life during 14 years servicing peace and liberalism. I have hated oppression since I was child, combating against despotism has always been my aim. I could never be silent against oppression of governors and close my eyes against discrimination and freedom violation, I could never ignore complaints of helpless and homeless humans. I have always been eager for justice and always combated dictators .I worship the God has not sent prophets for fury and harshness and doesn't issue an order which causes fear and horror. I accept the religion which is gracious and doesn't let religious authorities act despotically .I believe justice is the spirit of society, when human spirit becomes disturbed; insecurity covers and surrounds entire the earth. I call freedom body of society, in the case of one's freedom deprival, his body will be ruined .I believe attention to human rights is the most important vital services. Human needs freedom for releasing from every kind of bondage. One who tries to annihilate or restrict freedom by planning every kind of laws, in fact has committed treason against humanity and must be discharged from his seat. I believe peace is more essential than rain for people of the earth; because we can cure life which has no water by being kind to others. I believe common injustices in countries are more indecent than starvation for human kind because in anger of nature humans help each other and reduce the results of the disaster in this way, but in violation of nature and certain rights of human, there is no power and no permission for collective protests and the ability of people for demanding their rights become suppressed .I call the past history disgraceful in respect to human rights violation, because governors spend nations life and disturb the relief of people for their(governors') expansionism, they kill oppressed people for their ambitions, they annihilate generations to reach their animal and inhuman instincts. I call the world wars which occurred during current century oppression to selected creature of God and the black results of these crimes as a blot on conscienceless and the away from God politicians' escutcheon. I never believe the religion which calls oppression, belief inquiring and deprival of thought freedom legal for its progress. I call human the superior of the creatures and the divine selected in the world of being and believe every kinds of violation to his identity, existence and ownership are against God will. People are the real owners of the governments and the states and governments are their servants. Every governor has intention to exploit human is astray and doesn’t have governmental incumbencies right. Colonialist in every position and seat who has intention to plunder the humanity, in fact has announced the war against all humans, there is no difference in races, colors and nations in the world and humans are partners and sharer in all are reached from the earth .Existence of hungry in the world disgraces the wealthy persons in history and is registered as their cruelty and lacking of conscience. All people in the world must enjoy the natural sources and products. Expansionism and avarice is the sign of lacking of the contentment, prudence and balance and causes enmities and aversions and threaten poor and innocent people to bloodshed so we must abstain from every tool and instrument provides situation for wars and conflicts. Conflict and enmity are the first step of war, so we must establish kindness and friendliness communication among nations and religions and establish international relations base on favorable opinion, increasing the fraternization and refusal of geographical, human and minorities prejudice.
I am a peace preacher and offered my youth age to God because of peace. As a liberal who has paid heavy penalty and devoted his family and life for a long years because of reverence for freedom, I 'm asking for democracy in all over the world. In my opinion there is no difference among different holy and divine religions; every religion which takes us to God brings happiness. I believe massacre weapons are contradictory with human interests and nuclear bombs are the factor of human annihilation and also I believe competition for producing, increasing and selling the weapon is opposition to environmental cleanness and health and I condemn every things disturb human relief .The culture must be established as there is no need to prison. The governments must not establish the law which gives people trouble. Taxes, tolls and penalties must be moderated and people ability to pay must be considered .I respect all Human Rights servers, from Iran and I embrace peace propagandists warmly. How can the state of oppressed and miserable human be ignored while there are councils and institutes which protect animals' life and consider and control the way of human treat to them?
I had been invited and recommend to going out of my country many years ago, but I didn't accept to leave people and I accepted all risks and dangers with all my heart and soul just because of sympathizing with my countrymen and their need to defense of their legal and rational rights and now I am in the worst security, family and psychological situation and International societies are informed on my state. Notwithstanding these hardships, I tolerate prison, exile, torture and pressure to prove my aims in defense and support of human rights and greatness and importance of peacefulness. I call God and history to witness that I have abstained from oppressing since the beginning of my life, I have loved to help poor and deprived people and I never abuse my popularity and important and high social positions. When armed governmental forces raided my house, I invited everyone to capitulate and refused to confront with invasion caused to bloodshed. Now I call my self a peace devotee, freedom preacher and a Human Rights defender and ask decision centers on this matter to help me to further my sacred aims and give me immunity is proportionate to this responsibility.

After spreading the news on hitting and transferring anti-Velayat Faqih clergy, Ayatollah Seyed Hosein Kazemeini Boroujerdi, from special section of clergy in Evin prison to an unknown point by officers of prison special guard and also of special court of clergy, his family started massive efforts in order to get information on Ayatollah Boroujerdi's state, but unfortunately it has had no results and there is no exact news on the state of this militant clergy.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi's family called prison as soon as they were informed on his transferring to out of prison and asked related authorities for an obvious explain and reason on this news ,but prison authorities announced they won't answer their call at all and they have to come to prison and follow up the matter. Ayatollah Boroujerdi's family couldn't get any information about Ayatollah Boroujeri, in spite of their repeated goings to Evin prison and hard following up and this matter led to the rumor of his killing become stronger. The prison authorities announced in reply to repeated referring and following up of Ayatollah Boroujerdi's family that they won't answer the questions on this subject because of security matters!!
The received reports indicate that the authorities of Iran dictatorship regime have sought to cheat public thoughts by blowing the rumor of Ayatollah boroujerdi's transferring to Yazd prison. In fact they plan to kill Ayatollah Boroujerdi during transferring to Yazd. As yet the news of his transferring to the prison in Yazd has not been confirmed and he has been transferred to an unknown place. Such as these machinations remind us on chain-murder and physical deleting of intelligentsia and geniuses in reform period which religious regime of Iran planned to send the bass which intelligentsia were in, in to canyon by forged action, but they didn't success in performing their plan.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi's family has expressed it's concern on unknown situation of this liberal clergyman. While his family calls him a prisoner just for opinion, ask for practical commitment of Islamic Republic authorities to act according to Human Rights statement and respect freedom of speech, press and opinion.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi's family and followers in addition to express their regret for massive Human Rights violation in Iran, ask for releasing Ayatollah Kazemeini Boroujerdi and all prisoners for opinion and state in Iran immediately.
Long live homeland
Cheer to freedom

Today ( 23 Nov ) ,Evin prison security forces assaulted 500 section called special section of clergy of Evin prison ,at 4 p.m and hit some of prisoners ,among these prisoners there was Ayatollah Boroujerdi who was transferred to an unknown point with all of his belongs.
Informed sources say probably his sentence containing "exile to central prison in Yazd" has been executed, while the reason of the security forces attack and hitting Ayatollah Boroujerdi is vague.There is no news about his situation and his family is worried and concerned about him.
The letter of prisoners are Ayatollah Boroujerdi's followers to Human Rights societies in all over the world
We are five opinion prisoners who had gathered along with hundreds of other people in the house of Ayatollah Seyed Hossein Kazemeini Boroujerdi,the Iranian anti-dictatorship clergy, to prevent from his illegal detention ,26 months ago( Mehr 1385, Oct 2006). Unfortunately we were wildly attacked and arrested by governmental security forces, police and governmental factors in personal cloths (not wear uniform). During first months we were put under various tortures, severe investigations and imposed confessions in 240 and 209 sections of Evin prison. Thereafter we have been in prison about one year. unfortunately Special court of Clergy set our indictment based on accusations which were perfectly opposed to our previous background and social personalities such as defiance, action against national security, sabotage in public order, spreading felicities, involvement with police forces, taking part in illegal gatherings, communicating with foreign countries, spying, etc. there were no opportunity to defend ourselves in closed court sections were held without independent lawyer. At first we were condemned to severe punishments and long imprisonments, eventually our verdicts decreased to 2years chastisement imprisonment during several steps. All verdicts notifications and summons were oral.
Factually, our crime is just supporting a religious and popular leader regarding his ideas on separation religion from state, deletion of discrimination and also freedom of speech, belief and choosing religious freely by everyone that he obviously mentioned in his speeches, interviews and his correspondences, as well.
He called religious government in the age of not being prophets as religious dictatorship and ideological exploitation.
However, we were witnesses of the reality that this popular clergy was put under various attacks, tortures and hostile rumors just because of supporting God prestige and demanding deprived Iranian people from their rights. Not only he lost and devotes all his life during 17 years of fighting with dictator, but also he did not accept the triangle of
"adaptation to the brutal dictator, silence and escaping from country "and in fact he was supporter of oppressed people.
We hereby by repeated sympathy toward all victims of freedom of speech and belief, request from all real and juridical personages who are worried about liberal men in chains to follow up this case as soon as possible.

The greeting of kind God to you who are the divine justice messengers, in the name of God who is forgiving and gracious
I am a popular clergy, spiritual lover and religious preacher who have strived to draw people near to dear God for 35 years and have led many persons who didn't believe in holy religious law to Holy beliefs and devoted my rare youth in cause of this and have a lot of lasting services in Unitarians society and all my fathers were religious leaders in Iran and Iraq and were famous in religious, scientific and moral history. Now that I'm speaking to you, I leave message for you from inside of the chains of the prison which its owners claim that obey the religion and its authority's torture people by the name of world God and they are proud of their religious methods which let them kill poor protestors.
The crime of this religious leader who has been tortured for years by persons who pretend that are asking for Islam, is opposition to mixing religion and politics that I know it as an unforgivable sin. also my father who was one of the greatest clergies of the capital, was killed 7 years ago by terrorists who claim that obey the religion because of his opposition to political Islam and his protest against governmental religion, and recently they destroyed his grave which was located in his mosque and was honorable and sacred for people, and made a intimidation and terrible atmosphere in that region.
Since political regime has been established in Iran under the name of religion, public dislike for religion has increased and being society away from theology and the religious laws is becoming more and this is the disaster that most of Shiite clergies have always avoided it during 1400 years and never accepted to attend in religious-political meetings. I as a prisoner leader have shouted the call of peacefulness, liberalism and justice for commiserating with prophets who didn't have any aim except joining people to their God, and I tried to reconcile persons were away from God to the origin of the world being by slogan of religions unity and nearness and my thought and practical report card is full of cases that devil worshipers returned toward the generous God by my guidance and various and different gatherings of people in my prayer meeting show my occupational truth and heartiness .
The pervious records of governmental religion and religious states have showed the social decline and have never offered an acceptable, legal and beloved result to human calendar and have not left a beautiful and glorious recollection that of the most important results of them there were the church dominance in Europe and Ottoman Empire in Islamic regions which both of them were the factors of discouragement to religion and the shame of theism and this is the monotheistic tragedy which has appeared in Iran and the number of persons who are away from God and opposed to religion is increasing day by day and this is the natural right of this people because they had an admirable past in religious literature but governmental authorities have imposed poverty ,misery and helplessness to them for 30 years by the name of religion and this matter has caused lassitude in natural beliefs of people. the state of religion in Iran is pitiful and regrettable ,every kind of crime,oppressen and suffocation are done by the name of Islam , thought freedom and opinion independence have been annihilated and belief inquiring is dominated on press and also strict censorship is dominated on mass media and prisons are full of young people who don't want to be under the pressures of religious fogies and there are lot of women who have been violated and been deprived of their primary rights and have got a bad view on religious and sacred laws
Your responsibility necessitates helping us and performing the defense duty of monotheistic integrity.
The best regard

Greeting to justice, peace and freedom, greeting to Human Rights defenders, in the name of God the beneficent the merciful, in remembrance of dear country and oppressed nation of Iran.
I announce my thought and practical demands once more again before transferring to Yazd prison from the capital prison, to register in eternal pages of the world history in order to remove all doubts and hesitations in the minds of just world nations.
I as a universal clergy with world thoughts and 35 years services in preaching , Imamate and writing activities ,devoted my youth ages for divine , human , belief and social services and got an unique popularity among majority of people that caused envy of governmental clergies and anger of oppressor authorities. In religious and spiritual propagation I followed my father who was one of the greatest defenders of traditional religion and devoted his life in cause of theism and help and service to oppressed people and was killed by oppressors pretend that want Islam. I am inheritor of fathers who had been religious leaders in Iran and Iraq and they called the interference of religion in politic disturber of beliefs and called political Islam the reason of going out from" unity of God "belief and now, I express some of blatant and glaring oppositions between governmental religion and apolitical one, to world judges it:
The religion we speak about it, its slogan is "God has provided the easiest way for you in obeying the religious laws -Quran" that religion calls the owner of this sacred law, the close friend who never annoys his creations. The Islam that we want, its flag is this sentence of Quran "God is opposed to any obligation and pressures in accepting religious law" it means your God isn't strict and oppressor on his slaves. We defense religion that its word is "God asks human just according to his ability not more -Quran" and says your God never imposes strict and rough and hard laws on you because he knows "human has been created weak and feeble -Quran", human is sensible and delicate and without resistance, Holy Quran says instead of humans that "our patience and tolerance are finished", so God never issues hard and rough orders like cruel governors because he knows his slave. The religion I have been teaching to society, its shout was "to accept a religion there is no obligation-Quran", and forbade religious despotism. Spiritual things I teach are base on this sentence of holy Quran "prophet; they ask you what should we share with others, tell them: forgiveness", it is a public recommend to kindness and peaceful coexistence. Our way is base on forgiveness and easiness and our reason is "God doesn't want trouble for you in following religious laws -Quran".
Surely, establisher of holy laws doesn't send any prophets or any holy books that make people nerves and poor and put them in economical pressures. Our religious school is this sentence of holy Quran "all of you belong to a big religious family and your father is holy Abraham" that introduces all followers of all religions as a big unity family, and the message of theism teacher ,holy Abraham, is "every one follows my thoughts and ideas is one of my family" that its meaning is unity of all religions and close and inseparable relationship among all followers of all holy religions , so we call every kinds of disturber and negative inciting in unity of theists in all over the world a devil movement.
We believe the mission of our prophet is opposed to every kind of despotism and belief inquiring and harshness because he said "the philosophy of my mission is spreading and elevating morals -Quran". We believe all people are God's family according to this Quran sentence "all people in world are like family of God -Quran). When holy creator calls all creations as his family, no governor and no legislative has permission to oppress on people and destroy their freedom and independence. God says in holy Quran "peace brings happy and blessing for all", so humans must live in peace. Pugnacity and domination surly have exorbitant expenditures that hurt people who are real owners of country as people will be put in economical pressures in order to advanced weapons be prepared.
We watched irreparable losses of interference of politic in religion during last century:
Ottoman Empire damaged spiritual things and caused thought and cultural transformation in Islamic countries as will never be forgiven in world history. People under dominance of colonists were sentenced to medieval tortures under the name of religious dominion that its results were: criminals and atrocities by the name of religion and birth of Ataturk in Turkish ,also church dominance in Europe led to appearance of communism in world during last centuries, so human history has never had a good past of political religions because religion is a natural subject between God and his creations but politic has no borer and limits and shows appearances in Human life not heart and inner part of life.
This is my demands and wish of all nations in world that don’t lay blame on God and don't call your carnal deeds as holy laws because this action is a big oppression on world architect and makes him angry that it ( the anger of God ) is the reason of starvation, drought, earthquake, sickness , conflict and cruelty.
With the wish of success for all people in world
Seyed Hosein Kazemeini Boroujerdi – Evin Prison – Nov 2008
November 04, 2008
As physical and psychological state of Ayatollah Boroujerdi, anti dictatorship religious leader and opposed to Velayat Faqih regime, is so critical, moreover some released reports say that he has fallen down to the ground and hurt, so his family and his followers are so concerned on his state.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi has called torturing prisoners by cold weather, honorable torture.
Tehran - 4 November 2008 ( 14 Aban 1387 )
Ali Reza Sadeghi, a follower of Ayatollah Boroujerdi, had been arrested during savage invasion of security forces to Mr.Boroujerdi’s house in Oct 2006 and after spending months in prison and isolation cell, has been sentenced to 2 years imprisonment. Mr. Sadeghi was called to special court of clergy in Mehr of current year and was transferred to Evin prison in order to execution of the issued sentence.
Above-named was sent to out of prison in order to seek treatment after the considering by related authorities, because he was affected by heart disease and his physical state was so critical. Last day this religious dissident was detained by security forces and was returned to Evin prison again, though his treatment period is not finished yet. His family is so concerned about his physical state and asks international organizations to help.
November 03, 2008
Hundreds of Boroujerdi’s followers were arrested for attempting to stop his arrest in October 2006. They were reportedly tortured and intimidated during interrogations in Evin Prison's Section 209. After roughly 11 months in prison, they were temporarily released after posting bail in amounts between approximately $52,000 and $105,000 (between 500 and 1 billion Rials).
A number of Boroujerdi’s followers were again detained and taken back to prison in the past week (listed below).
“Boroujerdi's followers should be released immediately,” the Campaign said. “They have been detained simply for supporting him—a blatant violation of their freedom of conscience and belief. Their basic rights as prisoners have been denied and they have been ill-treated while in custody.”
The Campaign also stressed the positive obligation of the Iranian authorities to protect the health and basic rights of Boroujerdi himself. Ayatollah Boroujerdi has been in prison since October 2006, and, according to his associates, has been subjected to torture and severe ill-treatment during his detention. As a result, his health has deteriorated considerably and he is in need of urgent medical care.
