Mass graves of the 1988 Massacre victims in Tehran’s Khavaran Cemetery destroyed to eliminate traces of crime against humanity
In an inhuman crime, the clerical regime intends to destroy the mass grave of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre in Tehran’s Khavaran Cemetery to erase the traces of this grave crime against humanity. Erasing the traces of this crime against humanity has been part of the Iranian regime’s deliberate policy. Previously, it had destroyed the graves of the martyrs of the 1980s and the 1988 massacre in many cities, including Ahvaz, Tabriz, and Mashhad.
Subsequent to the call by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the Resistance Units and supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) condemned the clerical regime criminal action to destroy the mass graves of the victims of the 1988 massacre in Tehran’s Khavaran Cemetery, by posting placards, writing graffiti and disturbing leaflets in different cities, including Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, Kermanshah, Khorramabad, Shooshtar, Amlash (Gilan Province), Tonekabon, Neyshabur, Babol, and Iranshahr.
They wrote, among others: “Khavaran, evidence of Khomeini’s crime,” “Maryam Rajavi: I condemn the clerical regime’s inhuman destruction of the martyrs’ graves and the elimination of traces of its crimes,” “The clerical regime wants to erase evidence of its crimes in Khavaran,” “Destroying Khavaran is Khamenei’s crime against humanity,” and “destroying Khavaran is evidence of the mullahs’ crimes.”
Mrs. Rajavi urged the United Nations Secretary-General, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Human Rights Council, and international human rights organizations to condemn this criminal act and take immediate action to prevent the continuing destruction of the graves of the 1988 massacre victims and pressures and coercion imposed on Bahai’s.
