The second-in-command of this oppressive system is not aware of what is going on Evin Prison!

Recently, some voices from Evin were published in censored media already lacking in freedom and independence. The head of state for this fascistic regime wants to visit this model prison for punishing crimes under Iran’s so-called Sharia Law. Although the Judiciary is the main perpetrator of the evil cruelty and betrayal here, it did not agree to this visit.

Open letter to the Secretary- General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki moon, on behalf of Roya Araghi deputy of Mr.Boroujerdi

Your Excellency Dr. Ahmed Shaheed,
The United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Iran
Your Excellency,
I appreciate your humanitarian figures, particularly the third special report on the terrible situation of human rights in Iran and would like to attract your kind attention to the following points:

October 05, 2012

Please take the message of the Protesters against the Velayat-e-Faqih Dictatorship to all the people of world.

During this critical and tragic time, the Iranian people are suffering enormously from intense economic pressures now aggravated by new external sanctions on the country, suffocating political and social restrictions, and complete media censorship.
Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi, spiritual leader and prisoner of conscience, has constantly defended the Iranian people and their right to freedom, justice and peace. Yet he continuously stresses that without extensive media coverage of the Iranian people’s plight, as well as their demonstrations and my and the campaigns of others for freedom, justice and peace, the crimes and violence of this illegitimate and brutal regime will continue unabated, and the severely troubled situation of the Iranian people will never improve. He has bravely sent this message from within the prison to request that all reporters, journalists and media administrators regularly broadcast news about the Iranian people to the world. Their perceived silence is actually the result of media censorship within the country and the fear of brutal retaliation for anyone speaking against the regime.

September 30, 2012

Mr. Ban Ki Moon! Challenge the president of Iran, publicly!

 Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi has written some letters to United Nation secretary general on the occasion of the sixty-seventh UN General Assembly in New York. He asked Mr. Ban Ki Moon to publicly charge the president of Iran to account for some troubles in Iran in order for the world to learn of and impeded the dangers posed by this deceitful regime. He explained all that the founder of revolution in Iran promised is not actualized after 33 years, therefore the regime has absolutely lost its legitimacy and a free referendum in Iran is necessary.

During an open letter to the world Great leaders attending the General Assembly, he described the people troubles and said:”regretfully after 33 years we see just lying, wile, oppression, discrimination and violence in this regime”.

The Boroujerdi’s open letter has been receipt by “Human Right and Democracy Activists in Iran” and had been read already in ancillary meetings during the session period.

Open Letter to the Secretary General of the United Nations by Kazemeini Boroujerdi’s family

The Honorable UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon:
As the primary person charged with defending the rights of people around the world, greetings to you. Mr. Seyed Hossein Kazemi Boroujerdi is an independent, non-political Iranian religious leader in Iran. He has been imprisoned by the country’s so-called Islamic government for 7 years for teaching religious tolerance and the separation of religion from government.

Kazemeini Boroujerdi addressing the Founder of the Islamic Revolution

Arise and look at what your commitment and efforts have wrought in today’s Iran. Since you imposed and ruled over Iran with your version of political Islam, true religion and Sharia law have been destroyed. Every aspect of the current regime is just a totalitarian and corrupt dictatorship where the crown has been replaced by the turban. All levels of Iran’s government reflect the actions and policies of the leader of the Al-Bani Omaye, Al-Bani Marvan, and Al-Bani Abbas. This has simply been a resurgence of the religious tyranny of the Ottoman Empire.

Open letter to His Excellency Ban Ki moon, relating to decision to attend the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran

His Excellency Ban Ki-moon
Secretary General
The United Nations
New York, NY
Your Excellency,
Your decision to attend the Non Aligned Movement (NAM), this week in Tehran, draws special attention to the unique role of the Secretary General as the leader of the United Nations, an institution that, in 1945, set as the preamble of its charter the following mission statement:

Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi’s Greetings on the occasion of Eid-e-Fetr

I send my warmest greetings to all Muslim nations, scholars and students, and wish happiness and health for all of you who are fasting.

However, in Iran, this Ramadan is the most deplorable in the history of faith of this land. Iran’s poor have no reason to hope for peace, happiness, or the minimum of material resources to sustain them.

Kazemeini Boroujerdi's message to Olympics participants

In the international community linking politics with sports may be considered unpleasant; however considerations for human rights supersede all other issues.  Neglecting such fundamental rights causes irreparable harm to human dignity and degrades humanistic values.  Therefore one must place political convictions foremost in all matters.

Greetings to the all those involved in the Olympics, Athletes, Organizers, other Authorities, Hosts and Audience Members:
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
This letter is from a prisoner of conscience in Iran who has been jailed for seven years for speaking out against pervasive violations of human rights by Iran‘s religious dictatorship. He has been denied all legal representation and medical care, including needed medications, and is dying because of that lack of medical care. He needs your immediate help.

August 11, 2012

Respected leaders of the Non-Aligned countries

Respectful greeting to you by imprisoned historians;I apologize for not being able to present this letter stating my trouble in person , Inevitably I offer to all contemporary humanity.
Honorable members of the Non- Aligned conference
As a 7 year detainee against the Iran dictatorship regime (who spends this period without any medical treatment, any lawyer and has jailed in inhumane conditions), and also as a divine leader and spokesman of this wretched and plundered nation, I welcome you to Iran, the country of wail.

A Message from Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi in the 33rd Anniversary of the Establishment of Religious Dictatorship in Iran

Now we have reached the date of the anniversary of the establishment of the dictatorship government which claims to abide by religious faith, but in actuality, we have observed religious concepts and values being destroyed.Thirty two years ago, they utilized false claims, hypocrisy and deceit to encourage the sincere and religious people to revolt. In addition, they gave promises and convictions to the people regarding the possibility of Iranians living in a blissful, Utopian society and by doing so; they caused the annihilation of the previous Iranian monarchy. Furthermore, they also impaired the overall peace of the entire nation and unlawfully took away the harmony and trust of all of the spiritual, good-natured people that believe in a wide variety of creeds and faith’s.
