Brave mother condoles mothers of Iran political prisoners
NCRI - The mother of an executed attempted rape victim has written an open letter of support to the mothers who lost their children in last week’s mass execution.
Sholeh Pakravan, whose daughter Reyhaneh Jabbari was executed in 2014, has become a prominent advocate for human rights in Iran.
Pakravan’s letter begins: “Let us chain our hands together to prevent the harm to our loved ones inflicted by the [regime].”
She explains the horror that the relatives of those executed by the Iranian regime face; along with the loss of their loved ones, they may also be prevented from burying them. The regime will then try to discredit their victims by filling their affiliated press with rumors and lies.
She knows the pain they must be feeling, having the final meeting with their children stolen from them.
She said: “I know you still feel a great pang in your heart. You do not understand the meaning of sleep and food, fatigue and pain… I know all anxieties suddenly disappear and instead a sea of sorrow emerges in your heart. You feel that the bitterness of moments cast all over your world and all of your dreams cannot come true. You cannot hear your children's voice or you cannot embrace or smell them. I know you go to sleep enthusiastically so that you see your children in the dream”.
She urges those who have lost loved ones due to the regime to “sing the hymn of justice” and resist the regime.
