December 23, 2016 Comments Off on Iran: Christmas, Nowrooz, eveything goes, except …
Except visible Sunnism!
…fire temples and private schools. Jews literally own and run their private hospital (!) (besides their numerous owned Synagogues) and of course Christians own massive churches, visible ones, crosses and other symbols of polytheistism covering the skyline of the city.
As for Tehran’s Sunnis, then they are clearly the most hidden community of Tehran, merely being tolerated (at best), despite being the largest religious minority (according to regime accounts themselves) outnumbering all Sikhs, Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians put together.
All the Sunnis own in Tehran are semi-official and privately run (often converted from actual houses!) ‘Prayer houses’ (Namaz Khaneh), NOT mosques (as the deceiving Iranian Shia propaganda machine spreads on the net)
This puts Iran in the same league as Islamophobic Athens, the capital city of Greece where although you will find dozens of HIDDEN underground mosques, yet just like the hypocritical hateful Neo-#Safavid authorities of Iran, Greek authorities (under the pressure of the orthodox clergy) too can tolerate everything except a Muslim-Sunni place of worship, this Anti-Sunni policy unites Athens and Tehran, except that the latter is worse in its hypocracy as it claims Islam and brotherhood between Sunnis and Shias.
Sunnis in Tehran are prohibited from building and running their own places of worship, only underground and hidden converted flats are tolerated (and even those are often raised, shit down and constantly face forms of harassment). An actual place of worship where Sunnis can worship according to their rites, including FIVE daily Adhans and prayers (and not three joined ones as Tehran is the only ‘Islamic’ capital in the world where you hear three Adhans a say only, same in Karbala, Najaf etc.), this can be done only hidden in prayer houses so that as few Shias as possible come in contact with Sunnis, yet massive Zoroastrian temples and churches don’t bother the regime (yes, Christian missionaries and other minorities are also discriminated to some degree, yet at least most of them can run actual places of worship and not garage like prayer rooms!), not even public Christmas celebrations in the heart of Shiite Tehran.
January 19, 2015 Comments Off on Iranian Sunni Imam: Still no Mosque for the Sunni community in Tehran!
One of the most influencial Sunni scholars of Iran (from Zahedan city), Shaikh Abdulhamid Ismail-Zehi reminded the Iranian regime of their (empty) rhetorics of “Shia-Sunni” unity and asks for the permission of building a real Mosque in Tehran for the Sunnis, where Sunnis can pray the five prayers seperately (not like Shias at three times a day, Tehran is the only capital in the Islam world where you can hear three Adhans a day only!), according to their rites, after all Christians and Jews (they even own a massive hospital!) call over 40 churches and synagoges their own in Tehran. There are Zoroastrian (Majoosi) temples (and even high schools), there is even a Sikh temple in Tehran, all visible, yet Sunni are squashed in their private rented rooms in some areas in Tehran (which the deceitful Shia press sells as “Sunni Mosques in Tehran”!)
Shaykh Abdul-Hamid Esmail-Zehi, after giving this speech had his passport confiscated by the authorities. They have done this numerous times. They have stopped him from travelling many times and confiscated his passport sometimes for months. Not to forget tens of major Sunnis figures who were before him were assassinated and killed simply because they would ask for rights of the Sunnis. So I agree with you that they haven’t ‘harmed’ him yet.

January 11, 2015 Comments Off on Behind the scenes of the ‘Islamic Unity conference’ (farce) of the Rafidi-Safavid regime
The 28th Islamic Unity Conference was held in Iran’s Capital City of Tehran. The so called Shia-Sunni ‘unity-week’ began this year on Monday 5 January. The audacity and hypocrisy the Iranian Zion-Safavid regime and the Rafidi clergy has reached new hights. Those familiar with the struggle of the Sunnis of Iran know some shocking facts about the ‘Islamic Republic’, including the following things that you will never find (or hear) in the capital of the ‘Islamic Republic’ that is (no jokes) as per constitution the property of ‘Imam Al-Zaman’ (Shia Mahdi):
– Five Adhans a day (Shia combine the 5 prayers, on a daily basis which can be argued as valid practiced under certain conditions, as Sunnis also combine prayers. However, the Sunnah of the Prophet that was followed by his family and companions always was that it is better to pray all prayers at five different times a day, yet in Tehran even the Mosques and religious people combine their prayers, hence it is the only ‘Muslim’ capital in the world where you will hear only three Adhans a day. Yet this regime and the Shia clergy claim to follow the “true” Sunnah!

October 6, 2014 Comments Off on Eid 2014: Sunni Muslims prevented from holding Eid prayers in parts of Tehran, Iran
Security forces were deployed early in the morning around Sunni prayer sites in parts of Tehran on 5 October 2014, the day Iran celebrated Eid al-Adha, and prevented Sunni Muslims from entering prayer sites in the Sadeghiya district in northwest Tehran, and in Sa’adat Abad, north Tehran.
Despite Sunnis being the largest religious minority in the Shia majority Iran, with records indicating that there are more than a million Sunnis living in Tehran alone, the Iranian government has prevented a Sunni mosque from being built in Tehran.
