On October 30, Ms. Narges Mohammadi at the memorial ceremony of Sattar Beheshti, worker and blogger who was killed two years ago under torture in the regime’s detention center, said: “How is it that the MPs in Majlis (parliament) have tabled the proposal of ‘promotion of virtue and prevention of vice’, whilst Sattar’s mother has been crying over his grave, calling Sattar, Sattar… and no preventer of vice raised any voice so far?”

She also reiterated: “Is there a greater evil than killing innocent people like Sattar Beheshti, like Homa Saber, like Haleh Sahabi, like Neda Agh Sultan, like Sohrab Aerabi, and 1,000 & 1,000 others? Has a society experienced greater evil than this? So why don’t you prevent it? Why do the courts address these killings? Which one of these cases has been resolved?”

Ms. Mohammadi and a number of civil activists also participated in a gathering on October 22 in front of the Iranian regime’s parliament to protest against acid attacks on Iranian women and girls in Isfahan where most acid attacks occurred.  Continue reading IRAN: NARGES MOHAMMADI HAS BEEN SUMMONED TO REVOLUTIONARY COURT IN TEHRAN – VIDEO
