Iranian Regime’s Governmental Websites Disrupted, Calling for Regime Change Displayed

This morning, the official website of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and a number of its affiliated websites were disrupted.

Footage posted on Persian language social media showed that the front page of farhang.gov.ir has been made unavailable and images of Massoud Rajavi, Iranian Resistance Leader, and Maryam Rajavi, NCRI’s President-elect are displayed, along with the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s picture marked invalidated. The Persian text below the images reads: “The servers of the mullahs’ Ministry of Censorship and Suppression have been seized. Down with Khamenei, Viva Rajavi”.

Although the post was removed and the original data was restored after several minutes, at least 62 affiliated websites are out of reach and 77 servers and 280 computers have been taken down. The news was already widely shared on Persian language media and is expected to make headlines.

The official website of the MEK posted the following information:

  • As of 11 a.m. Tehran time, 62 websites of the Ministry of Culture and Guidance of the Iranian regime have been disrupted and defaced.
  • As of 11 a.m., 77 servers and more than 280 computers of the Ministry of Culture and Guidance had been taken down.
  • The servers of the Ministry of Censorship and Repression were seized and the slogans of “Down with Khamenei and viva Rajavi” were displayed on all pages.
  • Websites containing Instructors’ teaching card qualifications, websites of the Friday Prayer sermons, websites affiliated with the regime’s veteran affairs, culture management infrastructure management system, and the Kurdistan Organizing website were among the 62 websites that have been out of reach.

Footage obtained by the NCRI shows how a user is sending mass emails to various Iranian regime’s governmental officials and employees containing slogans of “Death to Khamenei, Hail to Rajavi”.
