State Officials’ Hypocricy Faces Public Backlash

iranian-officials-selfie-flood

Since the floods have hit hard people’s lives across Iran, state officials who are responsible for the negligence and corruption that devastated the country’s infrastructure and paved the way for so much destruction, have rushed into the muddy waters to show off and fake empathy with the victims’ families.

The systemic hypocrisy of state officials has triggered a fit of nationwide anger towards the regime which is partially reflected on social media. The outrage even made it into the state media.

The state-run Jomhouri Eslami newspaper wrote: “Wearing official clothes and without bringing relief equipment, some members of parliament, ministers and the mayor of Tehran,  attended the flooded areas of Tehran province, especially Imamzadeh Dawood, and took selfies with muddy feet. These photos were met with reactions from users on social media. Some people said that the face of the officials showed no sign of sadness and fear like those of the people whose homes and lives were destroyed by the flood. There was also no sign of fatigue like the rescuers who are helping the people. Which flood-hit individual on earth would think of taking a selfie in this situation?”

Encouraged by the Western appeasement policy, the Iranian regime took another Swedish citizen hostage and threatened Sweden with retribution.

A press release that was issued by the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Information (MOIS) and widely published by the Iranian state media claimed: “The accused person has a history of traveling to the occupied lands under the Zionist regime. As the MOIS has repeatedly announced before, it responds decisively to the smallest violation of the country’s security borders. Especially to the infamous regime of Sweden, which has supported several proxy spies for the occupying Jerusalem regime (such as Ahmadreza Jalali, a certain spy of the Zionist regime and a definite criminal who was responsible for the identification and assassination of some of the country’s nuclear scientists) as well as providing a safe haven for criminal terrorists such as hypocrites (regime’s terms to defame the MEK).”

With many of the Iranian regime’s officials warning people about new repressive orders, especially against the youths and women, the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei defended these orders in his latest meeting with the Friday prayers leaders and praised the actions of the regime’s so-called guidance patrol who are targeting the country’s women.

He claimed that the women’s wish to have the freedom to choose their own clothing is the ruse of the West, therefore encountering it is necessary. He claimed, “Over the course of more than four decades, Iranian women have been able to be present in scientific, social, athletic, political, managerial, economic, and cultural fields. They have achieved great accomplishments, all while wearing the Islamic hijab and the chador.”
