A statement from Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi on the occasion of the Assembly of the conference of Islamic awakening

Translated and edited by: Banafsheh zand
I dedicate this to all those freedom-loving, peaceful, righteous and pious patriots,
 Once again, the treacherous oppressors of the ruling elite have organized another assembly of smoke and mirrors, laying out a trap in the guise of religious authority and Islamic awakening, to plunder, loot and pillage what is left of the belongings of the innocent people of Iran and lay it all to waste to the alter of their capriciousness and deceit in building their trenches for self-protection against global concerns.

 As a Muslim, I am truly embarrassed and humiliated by such deception and misrepresentation of faith. What is this regime’s rationale and purpose for inviting and gathering all the various clerics from other countries to Iran? In a country such as ours, under these conditions, what possible right does this regime have to speak of spirituality and piety? What gives them the right to browbeat and export their corrupted version of sanctity to the world?
Would they deem to allow the deceived guests of this assembly visit a religious leader, such as yours truly, who has been falsely accused and imprisoned for speaking out against these deceptive claimants of faith? Never! Traitors are always nervous and cowardly.
I, who have been a prisoner of these so-called religious authorities for the last seven years, appeal to all those who uphold their civility and integrity to assist me in informing the world at large, via the international media and policymakers, that these gatherings and conferences are nothing but a mockery and a sham. Please report that this humble preacher, who is under torture, is reaching out to all those religious leaders and spiritual standard-bearers that in this part of the world, it is the wolves who are disguised in human form, rule the roost, destroying all the faith and love that the average person has for God. They have done their utmost in desecrating any trust in the Almighty and have shut down any will for independent inquiry and soul searching. Soon, any public unity will be wiped out and the product of this Islamic Revolution will be proven to have been nothing more than privation, desperation and downright chaos which will have been wrought on the children of Iran.
Our country faces daily deterioration, bankruptcy, social rupture and every possible ruin imaginable and this feigned slogan of ‘Islamic Awakening’ is yet again, nothing more than a calculated and orchestrated conspiracy to meddle in the affairs of peoples of other countries and the influencing of foreign minds, for the sole purpose of exporting their fabricated revolution.
They have spent the Iranian people’s vast national wealth for antagonizing and confronting countries in the region; they have squandered monies that belongs to the deserving Iranian in order to guarantee the longevity of the bloodthirsty Bashar al-Asad, Hassan Nasrollah, Moqtada al-Sadr and various other of their hideous puppet-cum-allies.
How then, can their claims to care so much for the protection of the people of Bahrain be taken seriously, when in this very country, people have no right to complain and voice their dissatisfactions? And when the average person who expresses any concern is attacked by a dragoon of regime thugs who break into peoples houses at all hours of the day and night, to suffocate those voices? They have crammed the prisons with innocent people and packed the graveyards with the bodies of those who were brave enough to speak out about the simple issues of deprivation and injustice. We have no right to free speech, no right to free thought, no right to elect any representatives that has not been picked for us by the ruling elite and so on.
Is it fitting then, that this masquerade, in the name of ‘protecting humanity’, continue while our own people, the persecuted Iranians who cry out under the pressure of tyranny, are willfully ignored? Where and to whom do we present these cases? To the United Nations? Policymakers around the world? Who will listen to us, the champions of freedom and the opponents of political Islam?
This child of God has spent his time as a prisoner simply because I have challenged this regime’s indignant meddling of religion in politics. Does such a belief deserve the torture that myself, my family and supporters have had to endure?
Nonetheless, I offer thanks to my creator and to his glory.
