The Ahlus-Sunnah of Tehran and the on going oppression – raids on prayer houses

August 10, 2014 Comments Off on The Ahlus-Sunnah of Tehran and the on going oppression – raids on prayer houses

There are a few prayer houses (Namaz Khaneh, there is NOT a single visible Sunni Mosque) in Tehran (yet the devilish Iranian Shia media such as PRESS TV and other notorious liars claim there are Mosques for Sunnis in Tehran!) but even they are being raided and the Sunnis of Tehran (LARGEST religious minority of Tehran) are harrassed on a regular basis. There are over 40 (!) churches in Tehran, over twenty Synagoges, Zoroastrian (Majoos) temples (even Zoroastrian highschools!) and even a SIKH temple in Tehran. Jews have their OWN private hospitals, yet Sunnis are not allowed to own a SINGLE proper visible Sunni Mosque (the Shia authorities are scared to death of authentic Islam, they know it will attract the masses who – particularly in Shia cities – know nothing about Sunni Islam except what they are being told by the biased and secterian Shia clergy), Sunnis are not even allowed to own a bookshop, let alone a Mosque! Who is more oppressive? Washington, Moscow and Israel or the secterian Iranian Shia Republic of Iran? Keep in mind, no matter how unjust the former are, at least they allow their citizens to build Mosques (for Shias and Sunnis alike!), whereas Tehran is the ONLY major capital of the world where Sunnis can’t perform their religious rights behind one of their Imams i.e. they don’t own a SINGLE Mosque!

The hysterical Shia regime tries to stop conversions to Islam/Sunnah by distributing thousands of books, mocking Sunnis!

July 24, 2014 Comments Off on The hysterical Shia regime tries to stop conversions to Islam/Sunnah by distributing thousands of books, mocking Sunnis!

10494763_350727811746926_927659553626523310_nIran distributes more than 6000 books mocking Sunni beliefs in Ahwaz, Khuzestan province.More than 6000 books mocking Sunni beliefs were distributed on 21 July 2014 in Ahwaz, Khuzestan province of Iran.

The books appear to have been distributed on the behalf of the Iranian government, with information printed on the books identifying them as being published ‘in support of Organisations and Agencies, The Department to Promote Virtue and Prevent Vice, Khuzestan Province, in co-operation with the Municipality of Ahwaz City.”

The books mock Sunni Muslims and their beliefs, frequently referring to them as ‘Wahhabi’, a term widely used in a derogatory manner by the Iranian media in reference to practicing Sunni Muslims.

Iran’s crackdown continues on Ex-Shias in Ahwaz

July 23, 2014 Comments Off on Iran’s crackdown continues on Ex-Shias in Ahwaz

Iran’s crackdown on the Sunnis of Ahwaz continues as three Sunni preachers from Iran’s Ahwazi Arab minority were arrested on Sunday in Mahshahr city, Kuzestan province of Iran.

23-year old Hossein Saboori and his 21-year old brother Hassan Saboori were arrested and taken to an unknown location by security forces on Sunday 20 July 2014 in the town of Taleghani (Al-Kora) in Mahshahr city, Khuzestan.

Security forces then proceeded to raid the Saboori family home, causing ‘fear and panic’ to the women and children in the house.

Ahwazi human rights activist Karim Dahimi told the HRA News Agency, “[Hossein Saboori] was a Sunni preacher and he would collect the youth of the Al-Kora area [Taleghani] and teach them Arabic language and the Qur’an.”

The Saboori brothers were previously detained in May 2014 by the Ministry of Intelligence on charges of ‘spreading propaganda against the state’ in relation to their Sunni preaching activities.

Another Sunni preacher, 25-year old Sami Zebady Alboghobesh, was also arrested on Sunday in the market in Taleghani.

A Sunni religious activist, he had previously converted from Shi’ism to Sunni Islam, and actively participated in meetings held to teach the Arabic language.

The latest arrests comes just days after seven Sunni converts were arrested in Ahwaz city and taken to an unknown location after holding congregational Sunni Taraweeh prayers.

Although the majority of the population in Khuzestan is Shia, a large number have converted to Sunni Islam in recent years, causing alarm in the Shia-led Iranian government about the growth of Sunni Islam in the area.

There has been a sharp increase in the number of Sunni converts arrested in the Khuzestan province. Earlier this year, four Sunni converts were sentenced to imprisonment and compulsory participation in Shia rituals by Branch 2 of the Revolutionary Court in Ahwaz, after being accused of “engaging in propaganda against the state’s official religion [Shi’ism].”
