Kasra Nouri: Prisoner of the day

Reporter for Dervishes website

Majzooban-e Noor Website: On Wednesday, August 29, 2012, imprisoned Gonabadi Dervish Kasra Nouri was put on trial at Branch 106 of Shiraz General Courts, under Judge Ashouri. Kasra Nouri's lawyers Davood Montazeri and Fariborz Yadollahi were also in attendance at the trial.

A reporter for a website dedicated to providing information on the widespread persecution of Gonabadi Dervishes, Kasra Nouri was indicted for "publishing falsehoods and creating public anxiety through membership in the Majzooban-e Noor Website."

After Judge Ashouri stated Kasra Nouri's charges, Kasra Nouri explained that he was merely reporting the cruelty unleashed on Kavar Dervishes in September 2011, when security and intelligence forces incited and pressured local residents to attack the dervishes, killing one and injuring several of them. These events led to imprisonment of many dervishes. "'Creating public anxiety' is what those who instigated these events did, but where are those behind this incident, the ones who harmed and abused the dervishes?" Kasra Nouri asked the court. Addressing the judge, Nouri stated: "With the amount of influence security organizations have over the country's judicial system, and as you lack the ability to pursue the lawlessness of individuals who, throughout my detention and interrogationrefused to observe my rights as an Iranian citizen, and violated the Constitution and my legal rights, I do not recognize this court qualified to review my case and I do not accept any of these charges."

Kasra Nouri was arrested on 14 March on charges of "propagating against the regime in favor of foreigners" and "contact and interview with Radio Farda." Nouri's family discovered several days later that he had been transferred to the Shiraz Intelligence Office's Detention Center, known as No. 100, but he was not allowed to see his family for a whole moth after his arrest.

Due to extremely poor hygienic conditions of the prison, Nouri has developed respiratory problems in prison and was temporarily transferred to a hospital for treatment last week.

The Eternal Iran Zameen

by Joubin on

andar khowar


Think Clearly, Speak Straight, and Act Decisively.  Only then will you be an Iranian.


مُلکِ ایران زنده از فریادِ توست



درود بی پایان بر همه زندانیان سیاسی  


مُلکِ ایران زنده از فریادِ توست


درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


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


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 Kasra's sake

by Fred on

After trying everything including the asinine “reform” of the Messianic Islamist Republic by lifelong Islamist Rapists, it is time to effectuate regime change by Iranians with logistical help from the sane world.

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

The Islamist Rapists will abuse the human rights until the very last second they’re ejected from the position allowing them to abuse.
