Iranians Protest Execution of Navid Afkari

Protest-against-the-brutal-execution-of-the-young-champion-Navid-Afkari The mullahs’ criminal regime ruling in Iran hanged Navid Afkari, a 27-year-old wrestling champion, Saturday morning in Iran.

Thousands of Iranians worldwide and several governments, international organizations, and athletes from across the globe had joined the call to save Navid’s life.

Despite this global campaign against the inhuman death sentence against Navid Afkari, and despite his own statement that the confessions obtained from him were under torture, the Iranian regime refused to back down from the execution.

Navid was born in Shiraz and was executed in his hometown. Shiraz was one of the cities that revolted against the Iranian regime in November 2019 and many young people were killed by the regime in this city. The Iranian regime executed the wrestling champion Navid Afkari, fearing that the uprisings would resume. Navid was an example of dissatisfied youth in Iran, and his execution increases more anger of the Iranian youth inside Iran.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said in a statement: “The mullahs’ criminal regime sent Navid Afkari to the gallows. But they will soon receive their response from Iran’s people and brave youth in their blazing protests and uprisings to topple the regime.

Iran’s courageous youth will rise in solidarity with the heroic people of Fars Province and in protest of the undue execution of Navid Afkari.

Iran mourns Navid and shares in the grief of Afkari family as the world is shocked by Khamenei and the clerical regime’s barbarism.

The religious fascism ruling Iran cannot survive a day without executions, torture, and domestic suppression. By spilling the blood of young people like Navid Afkari, the mullahs are seeking to maintain their hold on power in the face of Iran protests.

The execution of Navid Afkari, however, will only add fuel to the flames of the Iranian people’s uprising and will send the mullahs’ regime to the dustbin of history.”

The Iranian dissidents and the supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) have staged protests today in various countries to condemn the execution of Navid Afkari.
