Navid Khanjani: Prisoner of the day

Human rights activist

Committee of Human Rights Reporters: Navid Khanjani, human rights activist who was among the citizens arrested in Azerbaijan in August, while helping earthquake victims, has been transferred to Rajai Shahr prison. He first spent a day at Evin prison’s Ward 2-A, which is under the jurisdiction of the IRGC.

Security forces previously detained Navid Khanjani in March 2010 and he spent about 2 months in prison and was released on bail. Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court handed down a 12-year prison sentence, which was later upheld by the appellate court.

Numerous times in the past few months, regime affiliated media outlets published negative articles about Baha’i citizens and warned about their supposed activities, using Khanjani, who practices the Baha’i faith, as an example.

Khanjani was among a group of 35 citizen volunteers who had travelled to the earthquake stricken area of Azerbaijan to help their fellow citizens. The group was violently arrested by security forces 2 weeks ago and transferred to undisclosed locations. Some have since been released on bail but most of the volunteers are still being held behind bars while there is no current news of their condition. Some of the detained citizen volunteers are being held at Evin prison.

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



چرا ایرانیان از آخوندها متنفر شده اند؟



شیخ برو کُلِ نظامت ببر



Regime change for Navid's sake

by Fred on

The messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all, have proven to be reform-proof and doggedly anti-human rights.

Regime change by Iranians for Iranians with the logistical help from the sane world is the only way to end this 34 year long nightmare.

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