Soroush attacked, observers voice concern

August 2, TEHRAN (Tehran Times) -- Observers here voiced concern over the attack on an intellectual, Abdol-Karim Soroush on Thursday in Mashhad, eastern Iran. According to a report, appeared in Persian daily Neshat Soroush was attacked after addressing a meeting of supporters in a private home in Mashhad.

Neshat said "pressure groups," set upon Soroush as he was getting into his car. After Soroush got away his supporters came outside and scuffled with the attackers, who were chanting slogans against Soroush.

Observers believe that such an incident is not in national interest and against the guidance of Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei who on Friday appealed to the nation to unite at such a sensitive phase of history when the enemies are plotting against the Islamic Revolution.

The same observers expect from the Law Enforcement Forces to bring the culprits to book at the earliest.
