#Sunni_Muslims in parts of Tehran were #prevented from holding their own congregational prayers to #celebrate the Eid festival (Eid-el Adha). Iranian security forces barred worshipers from entering the #houses that they had #rented for the purpose of prayer, knowing that there is no even ONE Mosque for Sunni worshipers in Tehran, Iran (the so called Islamic State).
The #Iranian_government should follow through on the so-called Iranian President #Rouhani’s promises to improve access to human rights for #religious_minorities, Human Rights Watch said yesterday. That should include allowing #Sunni Muslims, a minority in #Shia-dominated Iran, to gather and #pray freely in their own mosques in #Tehran and other areas of the country.
During the early morning hours of October 16, 2013, dozens of uniformed and plain-clothes security agents surrounded #Sadeghiyeh rented house (Known as a Mosque) in northwest Tehran, one of the largest and most important Sunni prayer sites in Tehran province, and prevented Sunni #worshipers from entering the building to mark Eid-el Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice. Sunni #activists also reported that #security_forces prevented worshipers from entering another prayer site, in #Saadatabad, in northern Tehran!!
It makes me feel sick when people stupidly do call Iran as “The ISLAMIC Republic of Iran”, unfortunately they represent nothing of Islam those perverts!!
