Important Statement of “Assembly of Qom Seminary Scholars and Researchers” Regarding Illegal Detention Facilities and Martyrdom


In the name of God,
إِيَّاكَ وَ الدِّمَاءَ وَ سَفْكَهَا بِغَيْرِ حِلِّهَا فَإِنَّهُ لَيْسَ شَيْءٌ أَدْعَى لِنِقْمَةٍ وَ لَا أَعْظَمَ لِتَبِعَةٍ وَ لَا أَحْرَى بِزَوَالِ نِعْمَةٍ وَ انْقِطَاعِ مُدَّةٍ مِنْ سَفْكِ الدِّمَاءِ بِغَيْرِ حَقِّهَا. (نامه 53 نهج البلاغه)

[Quote from Nahj-al-Balagha, collections of Shi’a hadith, attributed to Imam Ali, the first of the 12 Shi’ite Imams, son in law of Prophet Mohammad]

“Avoid unjust bloodshed, nothing expedites the divine retribution, intensifies the reprimand, ruins the blessings and draws in the deterioration of the regime as much as unjust bloodshed. “
These days the great nation of Iran is inflicted by such massive disasters that wrench the heart of any Muslim and any liberal person who hears about them.
The Islamic Revolution was to protect the rights of people, to enforce the law for legitimate freedom in society, to eliminate illegal and illegitimate jails, inhumane tortures, and unjust accusations and finally it was to implement the instructions of Islam.
During the inception of the movement [Islamic Revolution] in 1963 Imam Khomeini advised Shah to obey the constitution and not to violate borders of law. Had Shah obeyed the law the destiny of his reign would have been different than what followed.
Today, after long years of Iranian nation’s battle, which is yielded through the blood of tens of thousands of martyrs and torture and detention of free-spirited men and efforts of the Grand Ayatollahs, specifically the keen leadership of the great leader of the Islamic Revolution, his holiness Imam Khomeini, the sacred objectives of the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic regime have been offended and a [certain] group of people are satisfied by nothing except the destruction of achievements of the regime.
Each day we hear the report on martyrdom of a son or daughter of this land and they [the government] announce it with such bawdiness, the detainees whose lifeless bodies are delivered to their families after a while. Some illegal dungeons are operating without the most basic necessities and observance of humane principles.
Reports of inhumane and cruel torture are revealed each day in one way or the other, they [the government] do not authorize a burial, funeral or mourning ceremony for those killed and these are all happening in the name of Islam, Quran and velayat-e-faqih [theory of governance of the jurist in Shi’ite faith].
A number of panegyrists are vindicating all these crimes without noting the destructive effects, the dear nation of Iran should know that the opinion of these vindicators [whether stated] in the Friday prayer sermons or other [forums] is not the opinion of all the honorable ayatollahs and great scholars and teachers of the seminaries. Rather the hearts of these highnesses are unhappy and anguished by the recent incidents and they will stand with the great nation of Iran and the suffered [people].
Iranian people [are encouraged] to continue their movement consistent with the constitution and its clear articles assuring the legitimate liberties which guarantee [the legitimacy of] their gatherings, and protect the thought and memory of those who fought for justice, along with [their] mourners.
We also have an advice for the rulers, the government and the judiciary body quoting from Imam Ali [the first of the 12 Shi’ite Imams, son in law of Prophet Mohammad]:
وَإِنَّمَا يُؤْتَى خَرَابُ الاَْرْضِ مِنْ إِعْوَازِ أَهْلِهَا،إِنَّمَا يُعْوِزُ أَهْلُهَا لاِِشْرَافِ أَنْفُسِ الْوُلاَةِ عَلَى الْجَمْعِ، وَسُوءِ ظَنِّهِمْ بِالْبَقَاءِ وَقِلَّةِ انْتِفَاعِهِمْ بِالْعِبَرِ. (نامه 53 نهج البلاغه

The earth will not be shattered but through the poverty of its inhabitants. People are inflicted by poverty when the governors start aggregating wealth and are not confident of the survival of their own reign and do not learn from the experiences.
