Abbas Khosravi Faresani: Prisoner of the day

Blogger arrested

Iranian Bloggers: On June 21, 2012, security forces arrested Abbas Khosravi Faresani, a political blogger in the city of Isfahan, after they discovered his true identity.

Abbas Khosravi Faresani is a Western Philosophy doctorate student at Isfahan University, who earned his graduate degree at Imam Sadegh University. Using the pen name Azad Azadeh, Faresani wrote in a blog by the name of "najvahaye najibaneh," and he authored a book by the same name, criticizing the Islamic Republic of Iran and its leaders.

He also used the pseudonym Azad Azadeh to post links and comments on the popular Iranian website, Balatarin.

After his June 21 arrest, Abbas Khosravi Faresani was transferred to to Isfahan's Central Prison where for 20 days he was exposed to severe physical and psychological torture to confess to charges of "acting against national security through creating public anxiety and publishing lies," "insulting the Supreme Leader and regime high officials," and "membership in enemy organizations, related to Israel (referring to Balatarin website)."

Abbas Khosravi Faresani was released on a heavy bail and now awaits summons to his trial court in Isfahan.

درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


ننگ بر آنانیکه از این زندانیان شجاع برای هدف شخصی خود سؤ استفاده میکنند

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. 


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Regime change for Abbas's sake

by Fred on

The one and only way to end indoctrinated gross violation of human rights and crimes against humanity by the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all, is regime change.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine in addition to logistical help to the Iranian people to empower them to overthrow the Islamist Rapist cabal is a must.
