People often ask why Muslims kill others. What they want?
There is only one answer to this question and that is “insanity”. There is
no other explanation. You can’t understand it. This is madness – a
madness that drives Muslims to despise life and murder even their own children.
I took part in the execution of my own son - Molla Hassani
Molla Hassani, the Friday sermon leader of Oroumieh is
known to most Iranians because of his fiery sermons and the ridiculous
statements he makes during the sermons. In fact his sermons are followed eagerly
by many as a source of entertainment. A typical topic of the conversation on a
Saturday is "did you hear what Hassani said in his sermon yesterday?"
Of course Hassani has no idea about the entertainment
values of his sermons. In fact he is not a light hearted man at all. He is a
brutal maniac, dedicated to keep the Islamic Republic at any cost, even if it
means killing his own son. In his latest book of his memoirs, Hassani describes
in detail how he helped the capture of his son and his execution.
Below is a translation of the relevant part of his book
"...My eldest son, Rashid, fought against the Shah. He was at the
then and was arrested on a couple of occasions too. Before the revolution when
he returned to Oroumieh, he would help in setting up the Friday sermons, and
help the poor and the peasants in their farm work. After the revolution however
he joined the Fedayeen Khalq Marxist organisation. I tried to talk him out of it
several times but to no avail.
At the time I was an MP in
, I heard Rashid had come to
too. I found out where he was staying. I asked Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani to send a
few armed units to where Rashid was staying. I didn't say my own son was
involved. I said if he gives himself up, arrest him otherwise shoot to kill.
Rashid was arrested and sent to
. There he was handed over to Ayatollah Mossavi Tabrizi, who appointed his
son-in-law to try Rashid.
Rashid was quickly sentenced to execution. I never even got
his body. I was not even upset. Even now if any of my other sons become enemies
of the state I would do the same. Of course Rashid hadn't killed anyone and his
crime was his thoughts. He should have been sentenced to life. But I am not
bitter; no one gets everything they deserve in this world. That is why Allah has
created Heaven and Hell and the judgement day. I really wanted to read Rashid's
file and see exactly what he had done, but no one can find the file. I heard his
judge is now ill and poor, I would like to find him and help him...."
Hassani is not the only Ayatollah who took part in the
murder of their own children. Many others proudly describe how for the sake of
the establishment they have sacrificed even their own flesh and blood. Some like
Ayatollah Gilani who executed two of his sons do feel remorse in their old age,
some like Hassani not as yet.
One day the West will realise what sort of animals came to
and how worthless they regarded human life, let’s hope it wouldn't be too
late by then.
