Freedom of Belief and Religion in Iran


سفير الأردن بإيران : إيران تذل السفراء العرب وتمنعهم من الصلاة حتى يوم الجمعة

Finally another Arab diplomat has announced it publicly. How stupid most of my Arab brothers and sisters are!

Jordan’s ambassador to Iran: “Iran humiliates Arab ambassadors and prevent them from praying Jouma’a (Friday) prayer! These are such criticisms as Iran keeps asking Jordan to allow building a Husainieh (Shiite prayer venue) in Abdoon, Amman while there is no at least ONE MOSQUE for Muslim Sunnah in all of Tehran! We used to pray Jouma’a Prayer in the Saudi Consulate in Tehran inside a garage with mats inside it, and that’s only for diplomats and their families not for public. And yet Iran is working on preventing us from praying Jouma’a recently. We are not even allowed to make Adhan (Call to prayers) publicly in Tehran as well as not allowing Muslim public to get inside and pray with us, knowing that there are many Churches for Christians there.”

That’s a clear implementation for the Freedom of belief and religion in Iran which Rouhani keeps talking about! Iranian Hypocrites!

Actually, to me its not a new thing to know. I’ve been talking about this issue years ago and trying to spread the word as far as I can, but unfortunately god has tested me with thousands of stupid and naive Arabs and Muslims in this region. I have mentioned in an earlier article how Sunni Muslims in parts of Tehran were prevented from holding their own congregational prayers to celebrate the Eid festival (Eid-el Adha) and I have showed how the Iranian security forces barred worshipers from entering some houses that they had rented for the purpose of holding the prayer, knowing that there is no even ONE Mosque for Sunni worshipers in Tehran, Iran (the so called Islamic State).

Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has guaranteed freedom of belief and religion as it stipulates that “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, TO MANIFEST HIS RELIGION OR BELIEF IN TEACHING, PRACTICE, WORSHIP AND OBSERVANCE.”

Furthermore, the Iranian Constitution recognises Islam as its official religion. The Constitution also recognises Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians as religious minorities along with Sunnah Muslims.The adherents of these religions LEGALLY FREE TO PERFORM THEIR RELIGIOUS RITES AND CEREMONIES, and to act according to their own canon in matters of personal affairs and religious education.

Article 4 of Iran’s Constitution states that all Iranian laws must conform to Islamic criteria, as determined by the Guardian Council, and article 167 obligates judges to give precedence to Islamic sharia in ruling upon cases presented to them!

Where is the so-called Islamic Republic of Iran from these articles? Where are the hypocrites of Iran from implementing these articles inside Iran?

Iran has nothing to do with Islam. I believe there is no difference between Iran and Israel, as both work systematically on destroying all aspects of Islam by misrepresenting its beautiful and peaceful teachings and principles and also by preventing Muslims from practicing their religion and spreading the word of it.

The Three Occupied UAE Islands by Iran


The issue of the three occupied UAE islands by Iran still alarms on both national and international levels. The ‪‎United Arab Emirates‬ did not stop for a glance from demanding to restore its ownership right in these three ‎islands‬ ‪‎politically and peacefully‬ away from ‪bloodshed‬. This has been confirmed by the state itself since the beginning of the case in addition to the historical facts.

These three UAE islands of ‪Abu Musa‬, ‪Greater Tunb‬ and ‪‎Lesser Tunb‬ have been occupied by Iran since 30 November 1971 to present!

The issue of the three ‪occupied‬ islands by Iran is a clear ‪violation‬ to the ‪‎International laws‬, ‪norms‬ and ‪‎conventions‬ as well as an issue that has direct link to the idea of ‪right‬ and ‪‎sovereignty‬.

The ‪‎International law‬ states clearly that sovereignty cannot be acquired by ‪invasion‬, ‪‎military force‬ or ‪coercion‬. In the case of Greater and Lesser Tunb, the Iranian invasion in 1971 in which a number of Ras al-Khaimah policemen were killed, is a matter of historical fact that cannot be denied. In the case of the ‪Memorandum of Understanding‬ on Abu Musa, the Government of ‪‎Sharjah‬ on that day, specifically reserved its rights to sovereignty. Quite apart from the fact that the Memorandum‬ was signed only under the threat of invasion, amounting to coercion, it has subsequently been breached‬ substantially and consistently by Iran in such a way as to indicate that the Government of filthy Iran has no intention of ‪‎abiding‬ by its ‪terms‬.

‪Muslims in general and Arabs in particular‬ should always pursue their righteous demands in these islands. We should never stop!
