MEK Iran: Minister of the Iranian Regime Warns of Further Social Unrest
As protests by Iranians from all walks of life expand across the country as a result of the country’s economic and social problems, regime officials and state media can no longer pretend that everything is normal.” People are growing more interested in holding public protests,” the Iranian regime’s Deputy Interior Minister, Taghi Rostamvandi, warned, acknowledging the volatile nature of society.” The measure of people’s desire to protest is critical. According to the state-run Iran Press website, Rostamvandi admitted on January 16 that “when people come out on the streets and demonstrate intense forms of protests, we should do a socio-political assessment since those protests will breach the rules.”
As the economy strains public’s patience is growing thin
“As economic and financial strains continue to increase, the public’s patience is growing thin. We should also raise the alarm because, as a result of incompetence or mismanagement, more people are moving toward a secular government. This is really hazardous,” Rostamvandi added, referring to the growing anti-government sentiment and calls for a secular government.
Iran’s ruling theocracy has used religion to justify its crimes since hijacking the revolution in 1979. The mullahs have been using Friday sermons and mosques to propagate propaganda and defend their regressive vision of Islam, which Iran’s lively population, particularly its youth, has rejected.
“It is intolerable that cities’ principal mosques do not offer daily prayers. It is you who are to blame. The prayer leaders bemoan the fact that we go to mosques but no one shows up. This is not the [regime’s] route. According to state television, Ahmadreza Shahrokhi, the Friday Prayer leader of Khorramabad, declared on January 14 that “we have had achievements, such as victory in the [Iran-Iraq] war.”
Ministry of Education send 36,000 children to the war
Shahrokhi defines victory as the regime’s ability to send millions of Iranians to their deaths during the Iran-Iraq War. The mullahs utilized mosques and other tribunes in the 1980s to recruit and brainwash children before sending them to the combat lines. To remove the minefields, the dictatorship deployed children as human waves.
“When the war broke out, we spoke to people in such a way that the Ministry of Education was able to send 36,000 children to the war who became martyrs,” says the author. The wounded [children] were not included in this count,” Mehdi Karoubi, the regime’s former Parliament speaker, admitted in 2009.
Poverty is the unvarnished truth and obvious to everyone
The Iranian people are suffering as a result of the regime’s corruption, ineptness, and mismanagement, which has resulted in the country’s economic crisis. Instead of addressing people’s needs, the regime has increased coercion and propaganda to obscure Iran’s poverty. As a result, another revolt looms on the horizon, alarming the regime’s state media and leaders.
“The country’s situation is not good. This is the unvarnished truth and obvious to everyone. Revolts considerably larger than the [uprisings] of 2018 and 2019 are on the horizon. “This time, the poor will take retribution on the streets if we do not preserve unity and respond accordingly, as many sociologists have predicted,” the state-run Mardom Salarie newspaper said on January 16.
