While dozens of other repressive agencies and institutions operate in Iran, their core duties and responsibilities are nothing more than cracking down on the people, especially women and youth, the Iranian regime's Red Crescent is being enlisted to preserve "chastity and hijab."

Iran’s Red Crescent Charity is now part of the Regime’s Repressive Apparatus

While dozens of other repressive agencies and institutions operate in Iran, their core duties and responsibilities are nothing more than cracking down on the people, especially women and youth, the Iranian regime's Red Crescent is being enlisted to preserve "chastity and hijab."

While dozens of other repressive agencies and institutions operate in Iran, their core duties and responsibilities are nothing more than cracking down on the people, especially women and youth, the Iranian regime’s Red Crescent is being enlisted to preserve “chastity and hijab.”

 

The ‘Helal Ahmar’ (Arabic for Red Crescent) Organization of the Iranian regime has been officially added to the regime’s massive repressive apparatus. State-run media reported the establishment of a group called “spreading the culture of chastity and hijab” in this so-called relief organization, which was supposed to be a non-governmental organization (NGO) and a member of the International Red Cross Movement that saves people’s lives and cares for safety.

Regime’s Established Monthly Minimum Wage is less than One-Third of the Poverty Line

under poverty line

This is despite the fact that, due to uncontrolled inflation, poverty levels will be significantly higher next Persian calendar year than they are now (March 2022 to March 2023).

 

“The poverty line this year is at 11 million tomans,” claimed Aftab News on October 5, 2021, citing the Iranian regime’s Central Bank. Using Hamdeli’s inflation rate and statistics, the poverty line at the end of the Persian calendar year (March 2022) has “reached 12.5 to 15 million tomans.” Despite this, the regime’s Supreme Labor Council established the monthly minimum salary for workers at 41,797,500 Rials, according to ILNA News Agency, on March 10. This means that even if workers are eventually afforded this minimum wage level (which, in most cases, it will not be paid), the sum is less than one-third of the poverty threshold announced by the dictatorship itself in the most optimistic scenario.

MEK Iran: Pouran Najafi, a Woman’s Rights Advocate

kh-pouran

Pouran Najafi was also a competent MEK woman, a combination of resistance and love, and a magnificent example of Iranian women in the history of the fight for Iran’s and Iranians’ liberation.

 

Iran is famed for its glorious resistance to the mullahs’ harsh and misogynistic dictatorship, which has a very humanitarian message. Misogyny is the most fundamental trait of religious despotism. The mullahs’ regime’s evaluations, regulations, and practices all have the same content: women are weak and owned by others. They have no place in society’s leadership and control. They are required to be confined in the house, and their primary responsibilities include babysitting and cooking. According to the Iranian dictatorial rule, women were created specifically for these purposes.

MEK Iran : Women Suffer Under Mullahs Misogynistic Regime

Anti-Women Threats

The regime in Tehran must be held accountable for treating women as second-class citizens” and for mistreating and murdering, its opponents.

The Iranian regime’s violence against women is one of its most defining qualities. Iran’s rule, which is dominated by fundamentalist clerics, has turned the country into a nightmare for women who are subjected to all kinds of oppression. Their antiquated rules have resulted in one of the world’s worst misogynistic environments. The dictatorship has been able to carry out any type of repression against women by making the hijab compulsory for women. As a result of the regime’s policies, women are treated as second-class citizens, with just half the rights of men.

Zahra Navidpour, a rape victim suspiciously found dead in her mother's house

Former MP Let Off the Hook Despite Sexual Assault And Suspicious Death Of the Complainant

 

Zahra Navidpour, a rape victim suspiciously found dead in her mother's house

The Iranian regime’s Supreme Court acquitted the assailant of Zahra Navidpour, a former regime MP and IRGC official, Salman Khodadadi.

The NCRI Women’s  Committee media outlet has recently reported that the culprit accused of the “suspicious death” of Zahra Navidpour, who was allegedly raped and sexually assaulted by a state official, has now been acquitted of the charge of rape by Iran’s Supreme Court.  His name is Salman Khodadadi, and he used to be a deputy of the mullahs’ parliament. Normally anyone convicted of rape would expect a death sentence.

When the defendant’s charge of rape was dismissed, the Supreme Court accepted his appeal and didn’t pursue his case any further due to his diabetes.

At the time of the incident, Zahra Navidpour, 28, was seeking a job following her father’s death. Eventually, she was offered a job by Salman Khodadadi, the city’s deputy and was lured into his office where she was raped. Ms. Navidpour revealed that she knew of other cases where the rape took place.

With all the evidence including audio recordings, Zahra filed a lawsuit against Khodadadi but she was never treated fairly.

Not long after, according to the NCRI‘s Women Committee, Zahra revealed in social media that she had been the subject of acid attacks and death threats from people associated with Khodadadi’s.

Sadly, she was found dead at her mother’s home on January 6, 2019, but despite the announcement she had committed suicide, there is heightened suspicion that she had been murdered by the regime. Unfortunately, no autopsy ever took place because her body was snatched and buried in an unknown village.

In a video clip published on the internet in March 2019, the mother of rape victim Zahra Navidpour revealed that her family was under the pressure of security and judiciary officials to undertake the murder of her daughter.

Who is Salman Khodadadi?

Salman Khodadadi was a senior official in the regime after becoming a member of the IRGC after the 1979 Revolution. He occupied various important roles in the regime’s bureaucracy in the sixth, seventh, and eighth parliaments.

This is not the first time that Khodadadi has been associated with sex crimes. He was detained and charged with the rape of two women during his second term in parliament. He was later released on bail. He went on to serve as an advisor to the Minister of Affairs after being disqualified by the Guardians Council for the ninth parliament.

The disqualification didn’t last long as he was soon elevated to chair the parliamentary Social committee by the pro-Rouhani faction in the Majlis.

The Iranian public voiced their outrage at what seemed to be a contradiction between handing out heavy sentences for some civil activists and journalists but ignoring more serious charge of rape and sexual assault by their own officials.

The misogynistic regime of the mullahs does not recognize justice for the victims of rape in Iran

The bill intended to protect women from make violence has finally been passed to the Rouhani government after being postponed in the bureaucratic process for eight years. The parliament has not yet voted on the draft bill.

Female victims of rape in Iran must somehow prove that they have been raped, including witnesses. It is easy and common for the defendants to turn the tables on their victims and get away scot-free.

Unfortunately, Zahra Navidpour is just the latest in a series of tragic cases, many of which never come to light. Those who are victims of rape or sexual abuse by officials linked to the regime rarely have a chance to see justice. Some, like Navidpour eventually end their own lives.

The case of Reyhaneh Jabbari, a 26-year-old decorator, comes to mind. When she was 19 she defended herself against an attempted rape by a former Ministry of Intelligence official, 47-year-old doctor, Morteza Sarbandi, who was married with three children. Jabbari murdered him and was executed at dawn in Gohardasht Prison after serving 7 years in jail.

Another case that led to a tragic suicide was that of Farinaz Khosravani, who threw herself off the fourth floor of the Tara Hotel in Mahabad, in Kurdistan on May 15th, 2015. She had been provoked into this by the attempted rape by an Intelligence Department agent, Morteza Hashemivand. Neither Hashemivand nor the hotel owner, who was his accomplice, were ever charged.

It’s not without reason that women play such a strong role within the Iranian Resistance and particularly in the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/ MEK), finding their ideals in the values and morals the entire organization believes in.

The main opposition to the Iranian regime, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK Iran) has been working hard on behalf of the people of Iran to ensure that the course in which the country is heading changes drastically. The MEK Iran has a massive following in Iran because it is working towards the principles of democracy, human rights, freedom, equality, the separation of religion and state, and peace. This could not be any further from the reality that the people are currently dealing with.
