The horrific truth about the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran

18.10.17
By Zohair Ahmad
It has become common knowledge that during the summer of 1988 the clerical regime murdered more than 30 000 political prisoners in the most brutal fashion. The UN special rapporteur Asma Jahangir mentioned the massacre in her rapport to the UN when she addressed the human rights situation in Iran this year. There has also been requested that the UN should assemble an inquiry committee to investigate the 1988 massacre.

The audio tapes that were revealed by the late Ayatollah Montazeri’s son leave no doubt that Khomeini’s death Fatwa was a crime against humanity and must be dealt with accordingly. The fatwa about killing members and supporters of the PMOI was a crime against humanity and all the people that had a role in implementing this decree were involved in a crime against humanity. 

It is no secret that the same people that were involved in these killings are the same people that are now at the helm of the Islamic Republic of Iran and they are also involved in the suppression and destruction of different sectors of Iranian society. 
It is clear that the culprits behind the 1988 massacre will continue to abuse human rights until they are faced with a judge and a jury and are tried for this hideous crime. The first step will be to acknowledge the 1988 massacre, the second step will be to start an inquiry to reveal the extent of this crime, the third step is to seek justice for the 30 000 victims of this horrific crime. The very fact that everyone that had any connection with the PMOI was murdered, not even unborn babies were spared, they got killed with their mothers. Also, children were reported killed during this killing spree by the regime. Youngest victim we know about was 13 years old. The list of victims that were killed during the summer of 1988 might never be completed since the regime is doing whatever they can to cover this up, they have even resorted to demolishing the mass graves of the victims in an effort to destroy vital evidence of the crime. 
We, therefore, urge you all to join us in our request to the UN that the 1988 massacre must be mentioned as a human rights violation and that an independent inquiry committee must be appointed by the UN in an effort to seek justice for the thousands of victims that perished under this massacre.

  1. The mullahs should be tried for their crimes in 1988. This is the will of all the people of Iran
