Moderate Ayatollah Boroujerdi Sentenced to Death in Iran
The moderate Iranian Ayatollah Boroujerdi was sentenced to death this week on trumped up charges by the regime.
The popular Ayatollah who believes in separation of church and state was arrested (Video HERE) in October, 2006 by the regime along with hundreds of his followers who were protesting with him (see above).
From 20-200 of his followers were murdered by the regime during his arrest according to reports.
The Iranian news service IRNA, posted pictures of his demonstration prior to his arrest and printed some of the slogans shouted by the crowd: “Freedom, freedom – This is our incontrovertible right,” and, “[We are] ready for martyrdom according to our traditional religion – that is, Islam that is not political” -(Wiki).
As reported at Pajamas Media, Ayatollah Boroujerdi wrote to Ayatollah al-Sistani in Iraq to request help with his case.
Here is a copy of that letter.
It was reported in April by Michael Ledeen and Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi that the Ayatollah’s health had greatly deteriorated.
