The justice in Iran is stuck in the dark ages, the sentence, stoning of a man and a woman is proof of that. This is disgusting and cruel. This is unfortunately not uncommon in Iran. This took place in Lorestan province on Feb 4th this year. Another barbaric punishment is the sentence for a 70-year-old man to get his fingers amputated. This makes me so angry, I am asking myself, what is wrong with these people? they are behaving like animals.
Another barbaric medieval sentence is that of two brothers, in addition to life in prison they get flogged and get hand amputations. Also, a young woman in Tehran has been sentenced to a year in exile and 99 lashes for talking with a man on the phone.
Amputations of hands or feet are not unusual in Iran, the regime is using this barbaric punishment in an attempt to stop people from committing crimes. This is an act of torture and the culprits must be brought to justice, the Iranian regime must be punished for their crimes against the Iranian people.
Another cruel sentence is that of a young man who is sentenced to have his eyes gouged out. The 27-year-old man identified as Hamed has been sentenced to have his both eyes gouged out because he accidently injured someone’s eye when he was helping his father who was in a car accident. This sentence is particularly disgusting because it is an act of revenge which has no place in a civilized society.
Another cruel and medieval punishment is that of parading young men and women chained to each other to humiliate them in front of the community. The only result this gives is that of an angry population that is showing their discontent with the regime in an increase of protests all over Iran, people are fed up with the mullahs and wants a regime change, in other words, they want the mullahs gone.
This is yet another proof that the clerical regime must be removed from power in Iran. if they do not go voluntarily we must remove them with force. The Iranian people deserves to live in freedom and democracy but for that to happen the Iranian resistance must be heard and the president must be elected by the people for the people. when NCRI is present in the new Iranian government these types of punishments will be abolished and the death penalty will be a bad memory from the tyranny of the despotic clerical Islamic regime. The NCRI has a ten point plan that is based on the human rights bill and that is the only option for a free and democratic Iran.
After the change of president in the USA, it is time to take a look at the future for Iran. Will the new administration take this opportunity to bring forth a change of regime in Iran?
By supporting the Iranian resistance the new president has a great opportunity to change the whole middle east. It is a known fact that it is the regime in Iran that is behind most of the war crimes committed in Yemen, Iraq, and Syria. to bring forth a change it is of utmost importance that the new administration does not repeat the mistakes of the Obama administration regarding Iran. The appeasement policy of Obama led to no visible change for the Iranian population quite the opposite, the rate of wrongful imprisonment and executions has risen at an alarming rate. It also gave the regime free hands to enter the war in Syria where they committed genocide on innocent Syrians
The best option for Iran at this point will be PMOI/ MEK this resistance group has a 10 point plan that is based on the human rights bill.
The clerical regime has no place in the future of Iran, Iran deserves to get peace and democracy, that will be impossible with the current regime. it is important that the world recognizes the wishes of the Iranian people and support the resistance in its work to make Iran into a peaceful, free and democratic state. The resistance has been firm that they will work to create a good relationship with Iran’s neighbors, it is in the best interest of the middle east region that the clerical regime is removed from power. Removal of the regime in Iran will create a ripple effect over the whole region that will give peace to Yemen, Iraq, and Syria.
The Regimes human rights violations are long overdue and the lack of democratic legitimacy should indicate that the regime has no role in the future Iran. Iran has the highest number of executions per capita 3000 people have been executed, many women and juveniles since Hassan Rouhani came to power in 2013 this is not an internal matter and should not go unnoticed by the rest of the world. The US is together with the rest of the world legally bound by the international bill of human rights. America’s commitment to universal principals is not negotiable.
In the future NCRI must have a vital role this to ensure that the revolution is for the best of the Iranian people and in the best interest of the whole region. It is time to let the youth of Iran show what they can do, which will be at best interests of the country. In order to rebuilt Iran, there must be a total renovation of the government and the separation of state and church is a must. The current regime has proven that the church is a bad state manager and that the mullahs have no place I the government of a future Iran. Another important issue is the role of the women In a future Iran, women must be given the same opportunities as the men and must be allowed pursue a career if they wish to do so.
