Grand Ayatollah Montazeri who opposed Ayatollah Khamenei is dead and now the streets and the blogs are filled with praises for him. Today Shirin Ebadi wrote a letter telling Ayatollah Montazeri how sorry she is for not appreciating him and for not joining hands with him while he was still alive. It is a beautiful Ensha’ (essay) which I recommend reading. I call it Nooshdaroo pas az marge Sohrab:
As of today another Grand Ayatollah is still in prison after 3 years for promoting separation of religion and government.
He is very ill but still alive. He is not dead, at least not yet.
Here is our chance to make things right this time and not be sorry for not doing the right thing before it is too late
Here is an article that D.W. Duke wrote on December 2008 about Ayatollah Boroujerdi on Iranian.com: http://iranian.com/main/blog/dw-duke/tragic-story-ayatollah-boroujerdi
and here is a petition that D.W. and Nazanin Afshin-Jam created more than 2 years ago: http://www.petitiononline.com/Maat2/petition.html
Let’s fill the streets, blogs and Tweets demanding the release of Ayatollah Boroujerdi. Let’s fill the void while we can. The time is now!
Een gooyo een Maydaan!
