The Iranian Shi’ite regimes dark shadow on a Sunni student graduation ceremony

May 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

photoAfter the crackdown on two Sunni school in southern Iran (in the Fars and in the Hormozgan province) by the Iranian authorities (an old tactic by the Iranian Shia regime to send out the warning to the rest of the Sunnis in Iran), we are glad to inform you about some good news, after all, the Iranian Shia regime and the Shia clergy – despite all the hate they harbor – can’t concentrate on harassing and persecuting the Iranian Sunni community without a break. After all they are busy backing up a mass-murdering Sunni killer and tyrant in Syria and they are themselves active in fighting and killing the Syrian people, so here and there the Sunni community of Iran gets the opportunity to practice their religion (in their own majority Sunni areas!) without any interference from the Iranian regime and the Mullahs of Qom (and the Iranian regime is in need of granting the Iranian Sunni community such freedom, because this is what they are going to use to fool their gullible admirers from amongst the ignorants of the Sunnis worldwide to portray themselves as a Shi’ite, yet just and Sunni-friendly country). Here some pictures from the graduation:

The Rise of Persian Salafism

April 18, 2014 § Leave a comment

Don’t get confused by the title, that’s what the de-turbanised Iranian theologian (!) used to refer to the Sunni awakening and revival inside Iran. Most native Iranians Sunnis are either Shafi’is (Persians in Larestan, Arabs in Hormozgan and Kurds) or Hanafis (Baloch, Turkmen and a minority amongst the Azeri Turks). Terms such as Salafism or ‘Wahhabism’ are employed by scaremongers to discredit the noble cause of many Iranian Shi’ites who without any force are freely choosing Sunnism over Safavid Shi’ism, after all Sunnism was the sect that flourished more than 900 years in Iran (compared to the 500 years of Shi’ism i.e. post-Safavid Iran).

1022570-195788-1More Iranians are turning to Salafism out of disenchantment with the Islamic Republic’s Shiite creeds, creating a clear threat to the regime’s rule.

Iran consistently accuses the United States and its allies in the Middle East of provoking tension between Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Among these accusations is the notion that the West funds Persian-language satellite television networks whose sole goal is to ignite sectarian conflict. Tehran’s paranoid claims aside, many Persian broadcasters inside and outside the Islamic Republic are in fact engaged in a satellite war, and their various propaganda salvos point to a new phenomenon in Iran: the rise of Persian Salafism. The fact that a unique, puritanical interpretation of Sunni Islam is taking root in Shiite-ruled Iran has raised worries among the regime’s elite and the traditional Shiite establishment.

July 29, 2013 § 1 Comment

…of course not in Shia areas (where Jews, Christians, ZOROASTRIANS and even SIKHS can freely worship) where Sunnis make the LARGEST minority groups (like in Tehran, Isfahan, Mashad), but at least in our own Sunni areas:
