NCRI - On the morning of Saturday, July 15, 2017, a 40-year-old man was shot dead at the Shahre-Raya subway station by the Iranian regime's security forces.
The man was murdered by the regime's security forces after protesting against a regime’s Mullah who harassed him under the pretext of Enjoining good and forbidding wrong.
Eyewitnesses in the scene say that, contrary to the claims of the regime, the assailant did not do anything with the people and only objected to the Mullah’s harassment.
State run news agency Mehr quoted Hadi Tamhidi, the head of the security council of city of Ray, stating: “this morning a clergy was enjoining a middle-aged man, his action caused anger in him, so he attacked the Mullah with knife.
According to reports, this middle-aged person died while being transferred to the hospital.
This criminal act, raised ire among eyewitnesses.
The resistance and angry reactions of the people to the so-called “Enjoining good and forbidding wrong” forces has led some of the regime’s clerics, such as Mullah Nouri Hamedani, to call for the formation of a ministry called "Ministry of promotion of virtue and prevention of vice”
On March 16, 2014, regime’s MPs approved the general plan to "protect those who are Enjoining good and forbidding wrong ".
According to this law, the headquarters of the “promotion of virtue and prevention of vice” was formed and is currently headed by Ahmad Jannati, secretary general of the Regime’s Guardians’ Council.
This volatile environment in the society, has led to increasing division and rift between people and regime’s suppressive agents and thus preparing the ground for more public protests
