Iran News in Brief – September 12, 2022



Former MP Admits to Public Hatred Towards Entire Regime


During an interview with the state-run website AkhbareFori, former MP Rasul Montajebnia said: “During the election campaigns, some of these gentlemen claimed that they are against internet censorship. All the candidates said the same thing. Now they are doing everything to stop the virtual space and restrict people. They think that with these restrictions, they can limit the youth and ward off the dangers that are posing to themselves. With the same ‘security bill’ and all those different names that they use, everyone knows that the gentlemen are afraid of criticisms that will be posted on the internet.”

“I’m certain that those women and girls who don’t wear appropriate hijab, it’s because they saw the president claiming to be against the morality police and now they see that the morality police is running intensively. They see on the internet how badly people are treated. These aren’t lies. These actions are the first evidence of the weakness of the government. These actions also show that we have reached the end of the line. It means that we are out of touch with the people.”

Montajebnia directly addressed Ebrahim Raisi and warned: “People are insulting you. They are attacking Islam, attacking the leader, attacking the Imam (Khomeini). You have made people pessimistic about the Imam, the Revolution, and the state. People are angry. They are expressing their anger with their words and their actions.”

Rezaei also added: “Those who have made breaking norms their priority, they should regret their evil plans before it’s too late and they should stand down. Some of these norm breakers are the elements of the hypocritics and the global arrogance (regime’s description of the West).”
