On The Loss Of His Mother - Shahin Najafi

Balatarin

زنگ زدم …گوش هایت انگار خوب نمی شنود.صدایت می کردم.به شوخی ..ملیح…ملیح من …مریم من…پرت می شوم در آغوشت و چهارده سالگی های تنهایم با تو.دیگر کسی نمانده بود.دست هایم می لرزد. باورم نمی شود. مرگ یعنی چه مامان؟یعنی تو نیستی؟یعنی دیگر برایم نگران نیستی.یعنی دیگر گریه نمی کنی برایم.یعنی بی بهانه دوست داشتن های بغض گرفته ات تمام شده است. من به اندازه ی گریه های تو تنهایم مریم من. به اندازه چروک های صورتت میگریم مامان. شنیدی که برای تولدت شعر گفتم؟ بی معرفتی کردی که مامان.من شبیه تو نبودم. شبیه تو که همیشه سکوت کردی.همیشه همه چیز را در خودت ریختی و پیر شدی. آنقدر پیر شدی که دیگر نیستی.گفتم مامان جان نگاه کن مادر فرزاد و سهراب و نداوامیر و... چه حالی دارند.گفتم مامان شبیه تو هزاران مادر پشت درهای اوین برای فرزندانشان زار می زنند.دارم بالا می آورم مامان. سنگ شده ام مریم من. دیگر هیچ چیز مهم نیست.گفتم بیایم ترکیه ببینمت.سرزمینم را که از من دریغ کردند.بقیه که آمدند سوختی و وقتی من آمدم بیرون خیالت انگار راحت شد. می ترسیدی از دیوانگی هایم. آخ مامان دارم می سوزم. هیچ غلطی برایت نکردم. جز اشک و ترس و بحران هیچ ازمن نصیب مادرانگی ات نشد.حلالم کن.حالا واقعا یتیم شدم.دیگر هیچ چیز مهم نیست…

به نام انسان
پاسخگویی به محبت های شما ،خارج از توان من است.اما ما زمان زیادی نداریم.زنده ها را دریابید.زانیار و لقمان مرادی را فریاد کنید و
عکس های سیاه صفحات فیسبوک تان را بردارید .ما همچون گذشته به کار خویش ادامه می دهیم و اینبار بی پرواتر وشرورانه تر...
فروتنانه سپاسگزارم برای پیام های تک تک شما اشرار و نیز تمام هنرمندان ودوستانی که به هر شکلی در این چند روز در کنار ما بودند و با پیام های عمومی و خصوصی شان ابراز همدردی نمودند.امیدوارم تا زمانی که زنده هستیم قدر یکدیگر را بدانیم و تنها به این اصل اعتقاد داشته باشیم که هرکدام از ما در هر جایگاه و با هر اعتقادی و در هرکجای جهان، در یک چیز اشتراک داریم و آن اعتقاد ما به انسان و تپیدن قلب های مان برای سرزمینمان و مردمانش است.
باشد که از فقر ودروغ و غیبت و خیانت وخرافه و فرومایگی رها شویم.
تا باد چنین بادا

Soosan khanoom jaan, open your eyes, I don't care if you knew Najafi before me, or if he insulted Islam or not, what I am trying to say to you is that the reason Najafi, beheshti, other writers and film makes etc. are injail or exiled or dead or or or is the absence of Freedom of Speech in Iran. The root of all this in Iran is lack of Freedom of Speech! No amount of rozeh khaani or Runi poem (no offense) will help these people we need to fight for the freedom of Speech in Iran if we really care about these people and many others that will follow and we need to start with ourselves.

Please read these comment again if you care to. I hope you understand what I am trying to tell you. All the best!

Well said! Freedome of speech and expression or lackthereof is the root cause of all of Shahin Najafi's (including our own) pain and suffering both in Iran and diaspora.

Mehrban , before you even heard of Shahin to use him for your agenda I was a fan of him ... My record is there on the old IC. as well as my comments on death fatwa and Islam , etc ... If you want to take this opportunity that I am giving to you to insult me , something that you are so good at , then you really need help.
Mehrban, still, it Is your ego that is talking... Isn't it? You need to get over yourself. I have written before that there is no death fatwa in Islam even if someone insults God or prophet ( which Shahin has not ) ... I am sure everyone read that including you but your mind is set...

Shahin has not threaten anyone's life here , it is his life that is being threaten . So I do not think so those who wish him death because of what he says are even know what the freedom of speech is. Anyone who wishes death upon someone else because of what that person says or thinks can not be exercising the freedom of speech. Shahin here is a victim not the one who wishes death upon him. If Shain , Nasrin, Shirin ebadi and everyone else were here on this forum they would be insulted by you as much as I have been within past two years. Cause me and them are saying the same thing.

Here is Another interview of shahin... I posted long time ago on IC ...

" Najafi is probably the most incendiary Iranian musician there is. His songs take on issues like sexual freedom, women’s rights, the sanctity of virginity, government corruption, rape in prison, and the rule of mullahs. In the track that earned him the fatwas, Najafi raps over his own beatboxing and calls for the return of the 10th Imam, Ali al-Hadi al-Naghi, over a millennium after his death. It’s unclear how, exactly, his opponents interpreted the song to insult the Imam, but the lyrics bemoan what Najafi sees as the problems of Iranian society: “dissolute men,” “sanctions,” “empty slogans” and women’s lack of sexual choice. He hits one taboo after the other — the cover of the album is a mosque dome shaped as a breast with a gay pride flag flying from the top.

His “first wish,” he says, is for democracy in his country. “But not through war. Not with a bloody revolution.” He says his art for him “is more important than my opposition to the Islamic Republic. But more important than that is my honor. If I see something wrong that is happening in my country, my honor forces me to address it in my art.”

Mehrban, I think your problem comes form the issue that came up since yesterday when that ID which was blocked by admin. You just do not know where to unleash yourself anymore cause you have been all over the board with your freedom of speech crap. That is why you accuse and insult me. But that decision has nothing to do with me. I am, however, with admin on that 100 percent and agree with what Said said.. I think it had to do with that user threatening people more than anything else !

Insult is in the eye of the beholder just a general matter. Now my comment....

He didn't insult Islam?! Are you kidding me?! He put a boob as the dome of the mosque (for starters). I want to know what your verdict would have been if one of the posters here did such a thing.

But that is not the point........

Regardless of what you, I or even Najafi thinks, the Supreme Leader obviously thinks that he insulted Islam and therefore put a price on his head. I know you are smart enough to understand this concept. That if Najafi was afforded his Freedom of Speech you wouldn't be here lamenting his mother's passing while away from her son.

How is it that you an enthusiast to kill Freedom of Speech in this forum, is the very person here lamenting Najafi's loss away from his mother and country?

Don't you see that you are the proponent of the exact attitude that separated Najafi from his mother? Because somewhere, someone (you, me, Rahbar) thought what he said or projected was offensive (to Islam in this case).

Freedom of speech says that the government can not come after you for what you say, write, sing, etc. (generally speaking)

Let’s also look at it this way; if in fact you did think that putting a boob in place of the dome of a mosque is an insult to Islam, do you think Najafi should have been banned from his home country and lose his
mother when he was away?!

- I feel like a doctor who is knocking herself out trying to get a family to give their patient who is dying from an acute infection antibiotics but they sing songs and read poetry and lament instead.

Ps. This box (to write) in is so small, I have no idea how this comment is going to read once I press the Post button.

Sousan khanoom, Although It is a nice gesture to send him a Rumi poem, it will not restore the time he did not have with his mother, because his work was not protected by the "Freedom of Speech".

I will respond to your other comment shortly. So little time!

Mehrban , I do not know what it is that you mean cause I think you are confusing a few things here ... This is about a son who lost her mother and it is hundred times more painful because of the entire situation that this mother and son had gone through... Still it is written for a loss of a mother ... so that poem needed to be sent ! As I would have appreciated those soothing words if someone had sent it to me during my loss .. I lost my mom when I was a teenager.

I sent a poem to Shahin and I will post it here too ... It is a poetic translation
done by Nader E Khalili on a Rumi poem !

When I die
when my coffin
is being taken out
you must never think
I am missing this world

don't shed any tears
don't lament or feel sorry
I'm not falling
into a monster's abyss

when you see
my corpse is being carried
don't cry for my leaving
I'm not leaving
I'm arriving at eternal love

when you leave me
in the grave
don't say goodbye
remember a grave is
only a curtain
for the paradise behind

you'll only see me
descending into a grave
now watch me rise
how can there be an end
when the sun sets or
the moon goes down

it looks like the end
it seems like a sunset
but in reality it is a dawn
when the grave locks you up
that is when your soul is freed

Have you ever seen
a seed fallen to earth
not rise with a new life
why should you doubt the rise
of a seed named human

have you ever seen
a bucket lowered into a well
coming back empty
why lament for a soul
when it can come back
like Joseph from the well

when for the last time
you close your mouth
your words and soul
will belong to the world of
no place no time

Shahin Najafi never insulted Islam,prophet, or Imam Nagi or Mahdi. Those who accuse Shain Najafi of that are IRI officials and IRI supporters. Shain Najafi, harshly criticizes IRI as well as oppositions both inside and outside and in general the Iranian Society NOT ISLAM.

''We Will Continue With Our Work''
By Shahin Najafi In An Interview With Shahram Ahadi

14 May, 2012

" Najafi, your latest song, "Naghi", has caused an uproar. Is it really about the tenth Shia imam?

Shahin Najafi: No. For me it is more of an excuse to talk about completely different things. I criticize Iranian society in the song........
................I thought there would be some political ramifications. But I didn't think I would upset the regime that much. Now they are taking advantage of the situation and making it look like I was trying to criticize religion and put down believers."

Shahin Najafi has insulted Islam and therefore has been banned from Iran and there is a price on his head. So what is the problem here? I wonder!
