The voice of Iranian freedom seekers has finally been heard in the West!


Thankful for Mahsa’s hair and sacrificed life. πŸ™πŸ˜”

Mahsa, dear. You made us “us” again… your beautiful name set an unrepeatable record in the history of Twitter…
You became the code of freedom that they made a promise with your hair.
….. #MahsaAmini

It has been a long time since I posted on political issues. I think now is the time! I don’t know how much you have heard about what is happening in Iran nowadays. Although I do hope you did because it is now broadcast on many worldwide networks. Of course, it is a long story: since the Islamic Republic of Iran came into power (at the end of the seventies), the protests for freedom had begun (In my opinion, the revolution had failed before its victory!), as I took part in them, but the highest point was the so-called green wave in 2009; however, it didn’t come on the air in the West as we hoped, only there was a brief statement by President Bush as he said: don’t harm the young Iranian protesters! After that, there was unrest now and then, but still, the West remained silent. (I might mention it before several times (f.e. here & here); it is almost clear for an intellectual these days to know that the free press is under pressure; We all have the orders from above and at least have a “free choice”: to say and write what we think and live isolated, or be decent and care of our future carrier!) And now?!

The death of a young girl named Mahsa Amini exploded an old festering wound. She wasn’t the first one who was brutally grabbed by Islamic police on the streets and tattered in the police cars because of her incorrect hijab; it happened before with the other young girls, but her arrest and death after they hit her head violently, there was no waiting any longer.

Honestly, at the beginning of this year, I had a feeling (a prognosis?) that this Mullah regime would spend its last time because of the western media’s reaction toward the situation in Iran. There were unusually more reports in the press.

On the other hand, the pressure on people got much more violent. It reminded me of how the secret service of the late Shah, SAVAK, did the same increasingly brutality in their last year of reign. Those days Al and I and some other friends were under their observation. I have heard it from one of the members of this organisation. I got to know him from another friend who was interested in spy movies and wanted to be an agent! He told me he knew an agent and would like to talk to us. This Agent was very friendly and told us how he knew and appreciated our father. He was a great thinker, he added, and his children had to be the same. Therefore we watched all your actions and took pictures of when you left the house and where you went! We know you are harmless, but these days we have some new members; ill-minded and brutal! I don’t know why he said; I just warn you to be careful. That convinced me later when I heard many violently dragging and arresting young people from their homes at night. That usually is the way to make displeasure and dissatisfaction in society. Those days I thought it was the end of Shah’s regime, and I was right! Now I’d make the same prophecy! Amen!

Mahsa Amini just wanted to be free, like many other women in Iran. She was a Kurdish girl, and as I know through my life experience, the Kurdish people are a unique nation. They are challenged for freedom all through their life, especially during the time of Khomeini. Once I remember well that Al wrote an article about their courage and excellent knowledge of living equally between man and woman. (We must bow before the Kurds, he noted.)

My name is Mahsa Amini. My 23rd birthday was two days ago. Instead of celebrating, I was kidnapped, tortured, put in a coma and killed by the government. My crime was that my hair was showing. Now I am dead. Be my voice. #MahsaAmini #Ω…Ω‡Ψ³Ψ§_Ψ§Ω…ΫŒΩ†ΫŒ #IranProtests

Now it is time for hope again. May this dark time end for the Iranian people, and this pure blood spilt by brave youth gets the goal they deserve. Freedom is like a fresh breeze which every human needs to breathe.

PS: Next week here begins a two-week school holiday, and it clearly means I will be kidnapped again! One week in Formentera, Spain. During that time, I will take a break as I might deserve. Love and Peace and Freedom for you all.

  1. Oh my, what an incredibly sad story! I hadn’t read anything about the murder of Mahsa Amini (only 22 years old) until I read your post today. I’m deeply saddened, outraged and shocked to read that this young woman was killed because her hair was seen in public. Tears here. Thank you so much Aladin for sharing this important news and enlightening those of us (like myself) who didn’t know that police brutality in Iran was “still” happening.

    On a much lighter note, enjoy your holiday next week! I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time! Look forward to seeing the photos and hearing all about it. Until then sending much love and light, Deborah.

    • I begin with PS: I know what’s going on in the UK; it has many problems! Nevertheless, thank you, love. I am happy to bring this special message from the other side. My mind is already totally obsessed with these happening, as I might wish to be there. And I will come with some nice photos indeed. You are the sister of my soul. πŸ’–πŸ¦‹πŸ™πŸ’žπŸ¦‹

  2. Love, peace and freedom to you, too, Alaedin.
    Yes, we have been following this story in Canada. It is on the CBC (Canadian) news a lot! It is also on CNN & BBC – lots.
    It is so sad. She is young and beautiful forever in our hearts and minds.
    Her whole life ahead will never be realized.

    Have a wonderful holiday!
