BREITBART- ‘Mullah’s Virus’: Iranian Protesters Condemn Regime for Coronavirus Response Failure

A group of Iranian dissidents in Isfahan, one of the nation’s biggest cities, displayed a protest banner on Sunday reading, in part, “Mullah’s virus is decimating Iran’s youth,” a reference to the Chinese coronavirus the Islamic regime has entirely failed to contain.

The dissidents are members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), one of Iran’s largest anti-regime coalitions, according to PMOI itself, which published video of the incident. The Farsi-language banner also reportedly read, “Khamenei the sinister mullah, you are the real virus,” a reference to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The banner appeared to also display an image of Maryam Rajavi, the group’s leader.
