Majid Dorri: Prisoner of the day

Student activist

Rahesabz: Majid Dorri is a student activist who has been banned from continuing his education, sentenced to 6.5 years in prison, and exiled to Behbahan Prison. In 2007, Dorri was suspended for several terms when he objected to the mismanagement and the security atmosphere of Allameh Tabatabaee University, where he was studying. Later, he was informed in prison that he has been banned from continuing his education.

Here's a March 2012 video in honor of Majid Dorri's 1,000 days in prison:

During the 2009 debates among presidential candidates, when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad publicly denied existence of a list of "starred" students in his Ministry of Science, Majid Dorri and several other starred students from the Right to Education Council held protest gatherings to show that "starred students" did exist.

Majid Dorri was arrested on July 9, 2009 (18 Tir). He was sentenced to 11 years in prison in January 2010, five years of which were to be spent in exile in the town of Izeh, on charges of "moharebeh" (enmity with God), "acting against national security," "disrupting public order," and "relations with the Mojahedin-e Khalgh Organization," charges he has consistently denied. On May 20, 2010, a Tehran appeals court reduced his sentence to six years in prison.

Majid Dorry has spoken several times about Judge Pirabbassi’s actions in his trial court, disallowing Dorri to defend himself against the charge of moharebeh (enmity with God), but convicting him on the same charge at the end of the trial session. Dorri’s family’s attempts to pursue the Revolutionary Court judge’s conduct during their son’s trial have been fruitless.

In Fall of 2010, a handcuffed and footcuffed Majid Dorri was removed from Ward 350 of Evin Prison and transferred to Behbahan Prison, where he has remained since. His family, residents of Karaj, have to travel 15 hours in each direction to visit him in prison. Majid Dorri suffers from migraine and has not had a single day of furlough since his arrest. While at Evin Prison, Majid Dorri embarked on several hunger strikes, and since he has been transferred to Behbahan Prison, he has written several letters to the authorities, objecting to his long prison term and his treatment.

In January 2011, Majid Dorri's parents were summoned to Karaj Intelligence Office and threatened not to disseminate information about their son's case.

I am fully aware that the TRUE Iranians [those who live in Iran and hold ONLY Iranian citizenship] don't care a bit about what you, I, or anyone else writes on this site.  This view is based on my cyber friendship with a few TRUE Iranians, who actually laughed at the idea of folks posting stuff on the IC.   :-)


درود بر شرف این دانشجوی مبارز


Our brave , young students have been  the beating heart of our nations  resistance to Islamist regime, for the past 34 years of shameful rule of murderous, thieving islamist fascism in our land. Majid and studenst like him symbolise what is good and honourable about our people.

Friends! Please ignore the regime cronies! Dont allow these fine  features on our political prisoners to be hijacked and derailed by Islamist regime mozdoors! Supporting all political prisoners of fascist islamist regime should be the single unifying factor for every single person or  group fighting for liberation of iran from islamist fascism.

Write your suggestin on the toilet paper and use it!
You can also send it to the people of Iran, this way maybe they will find a use for it. For the time being, the people of Iran don't give a damn to this kinds of suggestion  from you and your ilk!

Who knows who you are and what you do in  your private life?

As long as you are trolling these pages with your ranting about God and religion and Politics and fight and faith......this is only good for you who have nothing else to do.

Leave others alone.

Nobody cares for you.

Kingdom mentality . . .

by Mohammad Ala on

Let Souri khanom express her views.

Freedom of expression should mean what you say, others should be able to say what they want too.  After several years, there is NO explanation WHY Fred gets two blogs every day (rain or shine).  What gives?  Or what does Fred give to get this privilege?

Souri’s points are well taken and should be respected.

Iran has had prisoners like many other countries.  Iran does NOT have hundreds of prisons in other countries similar to the USA.

Evin prison was not built during IRI.  We cried for prisoners before IRI and we will cry for prisoners after IRI is gone because of the “kingdom” mentality that resides among many Iranians.

Obviously your God is not listening to you, otherwise HE would have responded by now. 
My suggestion to muslims such as yourself:

Kill your male arab deity 'allah' and embrace a female deity such as Mother Earth as she is nurturing, loving, and a life-giving Goddess.  She is a loving Goddess, as opposed to your blood-thirsty and pedophile-loving God.

Don't forget to burn the arabic version of koran on a monthly basis.


  IRI must Release

by Parsy on


IRI must Release Unconditionally All the Political Prisoners….Release Majid and hundred others like him at once, every human being is entitled to political, civil, spiritual, social, economic and cultural rights, only a Fascist/Dictator gov. is scared of individuals like Majid as Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.


We Shall Never Forget….


درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 


Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply.
