The Students and family members of Mohammad Ali Taheri have called to abolish the death sentence against the founder of Erfan-E-Halghe at the One hundred and eleventh protest on Sep 14, 2017 in Toronto.
Read the text of the statement that read out at this gathering as follows:
Today is the 111th week that we have gathered together in protest of Iran’s treatment of our beloved Mohammad Ali Taheri. Mr. Taheri is a prisoner of conscience in Iran. Iran has now sentenced to death solely for expressing his beliefs.
The Iranian judiciary have decided that an innocent man should die for his ideas. Even though Iran’s own constitution say that no one should be investigated for their beliefs. However, they have found Mr. Taheri’s beliefs so troubling that they have issued such an unconstitutional sentence. Lets review Mr. Taheri’s beliefs:
Mr. Taheri speaks of the following:
He says human beings are all created from God’s essence. Therefore all humans deserve our respect.
He says that if we claim to love God, then we will love all of God’s creation including all humans.
He says we are all connected to each other. That if we harm someone, we have in effect harmed ourselves.
He calls for unity of all of humanity and asks to set aside our differences.
What part of this message is so offensive that he should be sentenced to die? What part of this message is misleading? What part of this message is opposed to the teachings of Islam?
Iranian judiciary has brought shame and disgrace upon the reputation of Iran and its people with such an abhorrent sentence.
Our message to Iran is this: Listen to Amnesty International, Listen to the United Nations High Commissioner, Listen to statements made by other prominent leaders, and above all listen to God. Release Mr. Taheri now.
We will keep fighting until this unjust death sentence has been quashed and Mr. Taheri has been released.
