Ebrahim Babaei Zeidi: Prisoner of the day

Disabled War Veteran

Kaleme: Over the past several weeks, the Tehran Prosecutor Jafari Dolatabadi has repeatedly denied transfer of Ebrahim Babaei, a political prisoner inside Evin Prison's Ward 350, to a medical facility outside the prison despite his poor health and internal hemorrhaging.

Ebrahim (Nader) Babaei is a nationalist civil activist, a veterinarian, and a disabled Iran-Iraq War veteran. He is also a member of the Zoroastrian organization, Anjoman-e Ashoey-e Iran, that is dedicated to reviving traditional Persian ceremonies.

Nader Babaei was arrested on January 8, 2010, following his participation in the Ashura (December 27, 2009) protests, and was transferred to the Intelligence Ministry's Ward 209 at Evin Prison, where he stayed for close to three months before he was transferred to the prison's General Ward 350. Babaei spent close to 11 months in detention, where his health deteriorated as a result of the disabilities he had sustained during the war following exposure to chemical warfare. Ebrahim Babaei was released on bail in December 2010. He was arrested again on 2 November 2011 to begin serving his prison sentence.

Branch 26 of Tehran Revolutionary Court under Judge Moghisseh sentenced Ebrahim (Nader) Babaei to six years and nine months in prison, 74 lashes, and $3,000 cash fines on charges of "Assembly and collusion," "propagating against the regime," "disrupting public order," and "facilitating the escape of a suspect." An appeals court under Judge Pirabbasi upheld the sentence in full. In August, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, along with several other prisoners, Ebrahim Babaei Zeidi's flogging sentence was enforced, and he received 74 lashes at Evin Prison.

Last year, Babaei was exiled from Evin Prison to Rajaee Shahr Prison. In June, he was transferred to the Intelligence Ministry's Ward 209 of Evin Prison where he was interrogated for a month, and was eventually informed of the charges of "propaganda against the regime through continuation of his political activities in prison, and writing a letter to the UN Secretary General."

What he does is go to other blogs and post links to his own to get traffic to them. Then people who are ignoring him will get annoyed enough to visit his blog and leave comments (usualy out of frustration), pushing the comment count up. This is what I am against. I would say, don't let him get to you and get you blocked.

curious thing about Demo's link

by Anonymous Observer on

I looked at it.  It looks awfully like Wahid's writings, the photo collages, the writing style, the content, the unfounded accusations of a lot of people being Israeli agents, mentions of Iran and the assassinated scientists...all point to one person, our good friend Wahid.  The name "Kashif Ahmed" is probably one of his aliases.  Wahid is known for using aliases (sometimes even of real people) to write under.  Remember when he appeared as "ILoveIran," his bio page showed him as "Behrouz Vaziri, MD, cardiac surgeon" which happened to be the name of an aspiring med. student.  God knows what kind of contact Wahid had had with that poor soul.  He has also used other "real" sounding names such as Kurosh Mazandarani and Shahab Ferdowsi, among others.

I want to ask Admin why irrelevant spamming to blogs is acceptable, while relevant comments by likes of Zendanian are not when they are apparently "copy/ paste" with a link. Are we saying people can make comments about their dinner plans on any blog and it is accepted as free speech? To make it clear, I'm not against freedom of speech but people who use concept of "Anarchy" to trash important subjects when they have been given freedom to already write the blog.

Support Ebrahim Babaei Zeidi NOW! Don't wait for "Regime change"

by Zendanian on

Dear friends, contrary to war mongers on this site, Political Prisoners in Iran need our support in their defense NOW, without any delay,and can not wait for a "regime change" or sanctions to come to free them from their prison cell.

Also, please recall, there have been many cases of Iranian Political Prisoners being freed from jail due to public pressure put on officials of IR. With all the resources at our disposal, it would take only a moment to write a letter of protest in support of Political Prisoners in Iran. But such small actions will go a long way for our most brave Political Prisoners in Iran. Lets not leave them alone in their hour of need. 

Please do take a minute out of your schedule and send this protest letter below, or you own version. Many thanks in advance 


I (we) are writing to protest the continued persecution of religious minorities and the gross violation of Human Rights in Iran. We continue to witness many religious minorities brutally persecuted and unjustly imprisoned in Iran.

In particular, this letter is written to express my (our) serious concern about the health and well being of Mr. Ebrahim Babaei Zeidi who has been illegally  incarcerrated  for almost two years now.


I (we) condemn the continuous gross attacks on  religious minorities in Iran. I (we) demand the immediate and unconditional freedom of Mr. Ebrahim Babaei Zeidi and all other jailed activists and call on the Islamic Republic of Iran to respect the right of  all religious minorities to organize, assemble and freedom of association and expression.  




Please send your protests letters to:,,;;,,,;;;;;

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 



درود بی پایان بر همه زندانیان سیاسی



 یار دَربَندم،  دلم همراه توست

ملک ایران زنده از فریاد توست

Regime change for Ebrahim's sake

by Fred on

Regime change by Iranians for Iranians with the help of sane world is the only way to end 34 years of human rights nightmare at the hands of the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine is a must.
