January 20, 2015 – I praise the Creator, who never forgot to embrace his people and never ordered the use of violence, and did not send a prophet for the harassmentof people, and did not create a law for committing brutalities.
Greetings to all the freedom and peace seeking people of the world, from a religious leader who has beenimprisoned for over 3,000 days in thecenter of violence, brutality andtyranny, which has a religious appearance, and where he has lost hisyouth and health and his life:
As a captive of religious tyranny, I was recently accused of contradicting the Islamic regime, and following the presentation of religious documents and due to the rejection of all forms of brutality and violence in the name of God, I was sentenced to death.
I am presenting this aggressive statement against political Islam in the realm of contemporary history, from my special cell which is governed by inhuman conditions:
I consider that a religion which defies the laws which state that there is no obligation in religion as being more dangerous than any kind of criminality; a religion which oppresses and represses the nation, and opens the gates of skepticism on the eminence of God, a religion which has become mingled with politics, turns into a deadly potion which will not bring anything other than violence and danger for the world community. The history of mankind reveals violence by the religious leaders who have placed God in the seat of accusation and have chosen to make their material and carnal greed prosper.
The obscenity of mixing religious ideologies with ambitious goals in the organization of extremist groups and elements associated with acts of terrorism can easily be seen. The emergence and formation of the armies of jihad and suicide, destroys individual and social freedoms and tightens the sphere of life on the people and nations in the world, and its dangers and harms are much more grave, important and terrifying than all of the authoritarian political regimes in the world.
As a religious scholar who has always defended the sanctum ofmonotheism, I ask the believers of all religions: do not allow the religious profiteers and fanatics to accuse the compassionate God by using violent religious means, and to tarnish his great name, and I ask the religious leaders not to stay silent against such acts of religious violence.
I hereby express my abhorrence and renunciation for such criminal acts against the freedom seeking people. Hossein Kazemini Boroujerdi Iran -Tehran- Evin January 2015
