A man is being lashed in public in Iran, 2007NCRI - The Iranian regime police lashed a man 70 times in a prison on Sunday in northern city of Babolsar after a court sentenced him to the inhuman punishment for chewing gum in holy month of Ramadan.

The man had told the court that he agreed to pay a fine even though he had not been obliged to fast as he was travelling, but the court rejected his appeal.

Since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the Iranian regime police and members of Basij paramilitary force have been harassing the Iranian people on various pretexts. In a number of cases such encounters have lead to clashes between the youth and regime's agents.

The clerical regime agents on Friday, July 11, flogged four man in public in southern city of Shiraz.

According to the Fars province's police chief, Ahmad Ali Goudarzi, two of the men had been charged with eating during Ramadan and had been sentenced to 80 lashes.

The regime official warned that: “It is essential that people respect this holy month, otherwise they will be dealt with according to the law.”

The regime's leaders are resorting to such inhumane punishment, to contain growing public dissent as the country is at a 'historical twist' according to the regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

The increase in carrying out inhuman punishments and executions while the nuclear negotiations continue between the Iranian regime and the P5+1 countries, further indicates that the West's policy of appeasement and ignoring the catastrophic situation of human rights in Iran has emboldened the ruling mullahs in Iran.
