Today at the International Religious Roundtable with Ambassador Sam Brownback and USCIRF chair Gayle Manchin, Hamid Gharagozloo talked about gross Human Rights violations in Iran, and how Khamenei’s killing machine is hard at work, and this time with unprecedented fervor, against the Baluchi population of Iran. Over the past two weeks alone, they have executed at least 12 Baluchis and have transferred two more to special facilities for execution.
Those who were killed are Abdolhamid Mirbaluchzehi, Hamid Rastabala, Kabi Soadatjahani, Mohammadali Arayesh, Elyas Ghalandarzerehi, Hassan Dehvari, Omid Mahmoudzehi, Mehraban Barahoui, Mehrshad Barahoui, Behnam Rigi, Shoeib Rigi and one more person.
In 2019, the occupying regime in Iran has executed at least 30 Sunni prisoners on fabricated charges and based on baseless forced confessions under torture. IRGC agents have shot to death hundreds more. Just a few weeks ago, Khamenei’s agents trampled a young mother to death by running over her with their armored cars. She was trying to prevent these agents from capturing her young son by blocking them with her body.
Mr Gharagozloo also mentioned about his credible reports that the Revolutionary Guard agents (IRGC) are planning to detonate a bomb in a crowded residential area in Baluchistan and blame it on the locals, declaring the area unsafe and under the threat of terrorist elements, thereby using this as a pretext for sever oppression and murder of innocent people of Baluchistan, much the same as their sinister plans for Gonabadi Sufis 3 years ago.
Mr. Gharagozloo, further raises disturbing concern about the International Community’s and the Human Rights Organizations’ eerie silence on this genocide against the Baluchi population of Iran and Sunnis of Iran in general.
IOPHR representative Hamid Gharagozloo concluded his report by humbly asking Ambassador Brownback, Commissioner Manchin, and USCIRF, as well as all organizations, presented at the meeting, to take a firm stance against these atrocities and officially denounce Khamenei and his regime for their continual crimes against humanity, against the people of Iran.
