Sheler, another victim of the ruling mafia regime

Around three years ago, Iran’s supreme leader, Khamenei, traveled to Kermanshah, Iran’s Kurdish region.  He delivered a speech at the city’s university, Razi, where a young woman named Sheler, who was from a village in the region, was studying political science.  In the speech, Khamenei asked the students how to prevent an Islamic regime from becoming fragile and old.  Coincidently, at the time of his speech, around 80 students had signed a petition that was critical of the regime and characterised it as an old and fragile regime, primarily with regard to the university, but also society at large.  Not knowing that Khamenei’s apparent openness to criticism was nothing but a façade, if not a trap, the students even read out part of their critical letter while he was present.

 

 

One of the signatories was Sheler (which in Kurdish means ‘wild tulip’), who was in her final term of university. The day after Khamenei’s visit, she was kidnapped by the regime’s security forces and disappeared for five months.   They then called her father and asked him to come to Evin Prison in Tehran to pick up his daughter.  The father, who was an Iran–Iraq war veteran, rushed to Tehran in order to take back his daughter.  When he saw her he was horrified, as she had lost most of her weight and was not able to walk.  With immense difficulty, he took her home. After a few months she was able to walk, but she never dared leave home for fear of having to respond to the villagers about what happened to her in prison.

 

Last year, Evin Prison contacted the family and gave them three days to return Sheler to prison.    Sheler, being unable to face what was inflicted upon her during her imprisonment, found her grandfather’s hunting rifle and shot herself.

 

Sheler is gone, but the leader and the regime which committed, and continues to commit such savagery, are still in power.

How could anyone trust a wolf or a community of wolves is beyond my imagination. With a heavy heart, I bow to Sheler and his family!!

Perhaps, just perhaps some caring Iranians should meet in private with multinational corporations and also our CIA to make arrangements allowing the US to use the entire Iranian territory for her defense-related programs while the multinational corporations will have total and unrestricted use of all Iranians natural resources and in return they overthrow the current Iranian regime and put in place a leadership that is 100% pro-West and under the direct US control.
Well, just a thought that if Iran is under the US control that the Iranians may have more freedoms than they currently enjoying under a truly Iranian [shia] regime.

But, Iran was under American control when the traitor Shah was in power and things weren't any better. Instead of thinking destructively why don't you think of days that democracy, in Iran, breaks out and Iranians are once again masters of their domain and destiny...completely separated from religion!

As long as you try to take the regime down without violence these kind of things will keep on occuring. The islamist leach regime has no humanity nor empathy for people. Iranians need to organize and use violence against every mullah, government affiliate and top basij/sepah members they can get their hands on.

Akhoonds', or any other form of tyranny, in general, have little or no popular base...they seem to be strong from outside, but are paper tigers inside and at heart! Case and point is M R Pahlavi, the tyrant, whose government fell faster than the dominos...at the very minute that people started their movements. These monsters are next!

This has been going on since 1979! And nothing short of overthrowing of the regime in Tehran will change the situation.

A very poignant tale of what brave Iranians have to go through! These murdering animals, Khamenei et al, should not be allowed to scape justice and should be tried in a Nuremberg style trials!

This is horrifying and distressing....and yet another nail in the regime's coffin for sure. I do not understand how the U.S. with its core commitment to liberty and human happiness allows itself to even talk to, let alone negotiate with these bastards...or for that matter other bastards and dictators....many of which are in the region: Aliev in Azerbaijan, Princes in Saudi Arabia, on and on and on ...Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, even Karzai is no angel having been elected in a false ballot (under direct US supervision).

Dear ayatoilet1,

Money is the mother of all evils, corrosive and corruptive...and don't believe the rhetoric that comes out of politicians' mouth! Don't forget that Iranians have been there and done that, and have experienced life under the Shah, an American stooge, where life and liberty wasn't much better then, what they are NOW and was as suffocating. Also, realize what the former secretary of defense Gates just disclosed...he said that the US tried to meddle and change the outcome of Afghan election, out of dislike for Karzai...in other words they tried to interfere in the election when elections/plebiscite(s) are considered the foundation of any democratically elected government! And what West has been preaching all along, but when it came down to implementation they preferred their OWN subservient lackey or a stooge, not a free thinker, they never learn...and I am not alleging that Karzai is good or bad, or a free thinker, but West always shows their colors at critical moments and is not the solution or answer!

Ayatoilet jan,

I was talking about the declaration of independence, and a whole host of basic documents that established the U.S.A. There is a core commitment in the U.S., now whether a specific agency, American company or administration adheres to it - is a completely separate issue. If they do not adhere to it domestically there are courts and means for taking the government to task, but the problem is internationally there is NO rule of law (the U.N. is a farce) and there is no way to enforce these principles nation-to-nation (without direct war). Besides wanting freedom and liberty in Iran, we (Iranians) should be pushing for international reforms to eventually establish a means or method of dealing with these issues "internationally". I am not in the market for a bridge, Mehrdad-jan, but I think that reforms in Iran and Internationally are possible. The simple fact is - everyone, yes everyone knows that the "right" thing is. There is no debate about what is "right". When I say core commitment, I mean there is no debate in the U.S. at least about what is "right". So now its a question of getting there.

Zendanian

Zendanian An injury to one is an injury to all.

Part of an essay of the nature of US foreign policy:

"Since the Second World War, the external order of American power has been largely insulated from the internal political system. If party competition in the domestic arena has rested on rival electoral blocs, combining significant fluidity of contours with increasing sharpness of conflicts, in the global arena such differences are far less. Commonality of outlook and continuity of objectives set the administration of empire apart from rule of the homeland. In some degree, the contrast between the two is a function of the general distance between the horizons of chancelleries or corporations and of citizens in all capitalist democracies—what happens overseas is of much greater consequence to bankers and diplomats, officers and industrialists, than to voters, issuing in correspondingly more focused and coherent outcomes."

RIP.

Very sadly, Miss Sheler's story is not very unique as many young and innocent Iranians have been subjected to the brutal Iranian security apparatus which makes Savak by comparison a nice and friendly organization.

I should say that I have chosen a wrong picture which I took from Nourizad's blog. I have sent another picture to the site and hopefully they will replace it soon.
