Sunni imam opposes humiliation of Iranian prisoners

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

Friday prayer leader Molowi Abdallahamid in Zahedan spoke in this week’s sermon of reports from Iranian prisons regarding the humiliation and poor treatment of prisoners, adding that “according to some of the reports, the prisoners’ beards are forcefully cut or shaved. Such action is in violation of Islam and religious law. This is what the Shah’s agents would do, and those agents even cut off the beard of the Supreme Leader. They would cut the beard of clerics in order to humiliate them.” The clergyman, considered a supporter of the reformist movement, also emphasized that the regime, even if Islamic, will not remain in power through weapons and military.
