Sara Tabrizi’s Tragic Death under the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence is a Call for Justice and Solidarity

Sara Tabrizi’s tragic death profoundly underscores the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran, mainly targeting women and political dissidents.

In this heart-wrenching story that has shaken the world, we mourn the loss of Sara Tabrizi, a brave 20-year-old former political prisoner in Iran. Her untimely death, occurring just hours after her interrogation by the Ministry of Intelligence, has ignited a firestorm of outrage and condemnation from human rights activists and organizations worldwide. This tragic incident sheds light on the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran, revealing a regime that operates with impunity, silencing dissent and perpetuating a culture of fear and intimidation.

Sara Tabrizi’s journey began as a courageous young woman who dared to challenge the oppressive regime in Iran. Faced with the brutal crackdown on dissent and political opposition, she found herself imprisoned in the notorious “Evin Prison,” a place where hope fades and dreams wither. Despite her unimaginable hardships, Sara remained resilient, refusing to be silenced.

On March 23, 2024, Sara was summoned to the Ministry of Intelligence, a summons that would mark the beginning of her tragic end. Interrogations in Iran have long been synonymous with torture, a grotesque practice used to extract confessions and intimidate political opponents. Sara’s case was no exception. She was subjected to unimaginable horrors, stripping her of her dignity and humanity. Hours later, she was found dead in her home, leaving behind a grieving family and a world demanding answers.

Sara’s death serves as a chilling reminder of the Iranian regime’s complete disregard for human rights. The international community must rise with a unified voice to condemn these actions and hold the Iranian regime accountable. We cannot turn a blind eye to the continuous violations and political repression that plague the lives of countless Iranians. It is our moral duty to demand justice for Sara and all those who have been unjustly persecuted.

The suspicions surrounding Sara Tabrizi’s death demand a thorough and independent investigation. The Iranian regime cannot be trusted to investigate themselves. The international community must rally behind this cause, applying relentless pressure on the Islamic regime to allow an impartial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Sara’s death. Only through an independent investigation can truth, justice, and closure be achieved.

Sara’s tragic fate serves as a chilling reminder of the risks faced by those who dare to oppose the oppressive regime in Iran. Countless lives have been lost, disappearances have become commonplace, and arbitrary arrests continue to haunt the nation. We must stand in solidarity with the Iranian people, amplify their voices, and support their quest for freedom and democracy.

The United States and its European Allies must stop dealing and negotiating with the unelected terrorist regime of Iran, which has been holding a nation hostage for over forty-five years.  We must recognize the power of international solidarity. The Iranian people yearn for a future without fear, where their voices are heard and their dreams are realized. By standing united, we can create a powerful force in support of the Iranian s people to dislodge the Mullahs.

Like Mahsa AminiSara  Tabrizi’s tragic death serves as a reminder of the risks and consequences faced by those who dare to challenge the status quo in Iran and the importance of international solidarity in supporting the Iranian people in their quest for freedom.

To honor her memory, the international community must take a stand and condemn the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran. Together, we can strive towards a future where no one lives in fear and where justice prevails for Sara and countless others who have suffered at the hands of an unjust regime.

The brave women of Iran will forever shine as beacons of hope and a source of inspiration to those worldwide who struggle for justice, equality, and liberty.

Islamic Republic of Iran: Prison guards break kneecaps of 70-year-old woman who participated in protests

Iran’s Islamic regime has only one tool, the tool that the Qur’an gives it: terror.

“Make ready for them all that you can of force and of warhorses, so that by them you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” (Qur’an 8:60)

Iranian guards ‘break kneecaps of pensioner, 70, during interrogation in hellhole jail after she was jailed for anti-governmental protests

by Christian Oliver, Daily Mail, April 11, 2023:

A 70-year-old grandmother has reportedly had her kneecaps broken by Iranian prison officials in Tehran’s notorious Evin jail.

Human rights campaigner Mahvash Sabet Shahriari was said to have been under interrogation by officials when she was inflicted with the barbaric punishment.

She had been serving a 10-year prison sentence in Evin jail for participating in anti-government protests.

The news of the attack emerged from independent Iranian media which said the activist’s knees had been broken by an interrogator during questioning.

Evin jail has a brutal reputation for its inhumane living conditions and merciless treatment of its detainees, with prisoners frequently subject to beatings and torture.

Mahvash Sabet Shahriari was said to have been under interrogation by officials when she was inflicted with the barbaric punishment.

Frud Sabet, son of Shahriari, said he was yet to hear of his mother’s condition since her initial trial.

He told RFERL Radio Farda: ‘The family is very worried about her health. We don’t know where she is, and we don’t know if she’s alive.’

Shahriari, a poet, was seized last summer as part of the Iranian regime’s repression of the Baha’i community that saw several community leaders detained.

The Bahaʼi faith is a religion that counts up to eight million members in the world….
