To United Nations Human Rights Commissioner.
Dear Sir / Madame,
I was shocked to read the news about Nazanin,
this poor girl in
this morning when visiting the website of www.faithfreedom.org.
It is very hard to understand how this can ever
happen in today's world.
Please do anything you can to save this innocent
girl from this barbaric death by
hanging, just because she was so brave to defend herself against three
Isn't this a clear violation of human right and a crime against
Please don't act as you have not heard about this girl.
Read also the following article that I got from a
friend recently. I hope that Nazanin's story would not be the same.

Compare these two events:
1) Dozens of volunteers spent several weeks setting up 4 million dominos in
preparation for the Dutch world record domino-toppling attempt. A sparrow flew
into the hall and knocked over 23,000 and seemed likely to topple many more. So
someone shot it - with an air rifle. There was an immediate outrage - a 'tribute
web site' was set up by animal rights activists - over
20,000 people visited the site. The world record attempt was due to be
televised, but after the 'murder' even TV staff started to receive threats. The
person who shot the sparrow was charged with shooting an endangered species and
fined £100 - read all about it here:
"The bird was kept in a
government freezer after its killing became a criminal matter. It will be placed
on top of a box of dominoes in an exhibition on sparrows next year."
2) "Iranian Christians are mourning the death of Ghorban Dordi Tourani, an
Iranian believer assassinated last year by an unnamed group of fanatical Muslims
and the first Turkmen in Iran known to have been martyred for his Christian
A house church leader in northeastern
, Tourani was arrested from his home in Gonbad-e-Kavus on November 22. A few
hours later, the 53-year-old convert to Christianity had been stabbed to death,
his beaten, bleeding body thrown in front of his home.
I cannot find any mention of this story on the BBC web site. To my
knowledge, no memorial site has been set up, thousands of people have NOT
protested, and apart from selected Christian news sites, the wider Church
doesn't seem to know of the renewed persecution in

you write your petition to the UNHRC to save the life of Nazanin yet?
I take seriously your plea to protest this girl's
death sentence. But there are no sources cited in your article and an internet search
on this turned up nothing. Has Amnesty International taken an interest in this
girl's life? It would be helpful to those of us who would like to protest and
who are willing to sign our names and email addresses to know beyond doubt that
this is a real human being facing a true life or death emergency. And that the
email address given to protest to is a recognizable destination. If we readers
of Faith Freedom are to be engaged in protest in a meaningful way then we
must have more complete information. I hope you will help me out here!
one has taken any interest in this girl. No one seems to be interested in saving
the life of this innocent girl. The mainstream media has different priorities.
Shooting a sparrow makes a better story than hanging an innocent girl in Iran.
After all this is not news. These things happen everyday and it is not worth
is all you can find on the Net about Nazanin
injustice is done by the criminal and misogynist mullahs and another by the rest
of humanity who remain silent and do not give a damn. Write to the big press and
ask them why they do not report this.
email I gave is genuine. It belongs to the Office of High Commissioner of Human
Rights taken from their site.
Dear UN Human
This is a petition against the death sentence imposed
against Nazanin, a 17-year old girl, by a tyrannical Sharia Court of Iran.
The whole episode can be read here http://www.faithfreedom.org/Announcement/601081013.htm.
It is inhumane to impose death sentence against a woman who was trying to protect
herself from three diabolic rapists. Such incidents can happen only in Islamic
countries. This is the age of reasoning and not a Mohammedan era. The world
cannot tolerate the abuse of human rights. There is a proverb which says 'justice
delayed is justice denied'. I hence request you to take immediate action by
putting international pressure on the Mullahs of Iran and save the life of
this innocent girl.
