Greetings to the messengers who have no mission, but broadcasting
love, kindness and friendship.
With respect for dear Iran that is suffering under the most
severe forms of discriminations, oppressions and criminality. Iran’s current
history registers all disgraces and scandals inflicted upon the holy presence of
God by barbaric religious authorities.
Indeed, monotheistic religions are free from the possession,
control, and distortions of worldly irreligious men. You will never witness any
pressures, threats and physical and psychological tortures committed by leaders
of these religions. Under these religions, even the sentence of eternal hell is
transformed into heaven by the grace and intercession of God. We see the
kindness and tenderness of our Lord in the stories of the prophets as He
caresses His people in His great and kind embrace.
When religion and politics are combined, opportunities for
deceit, ruse and, crime will appear. The Lord of purity, goodness and happiness
will change to the ghoul of torture, torment and violence. This principle is in
accordance with this verse of holy Quran which says: (“و یخرجون الناس من دین الله افواجا” means the people leave Allah’s religion
in crowds) will become certain. I wish I were dead and I had never seen such
these deplorable and lamentable days.
The religion whose Prophet maintained friendship and honesty with
the followers of other religions, as he went to visit his Jewish neighbor who
was sick! The Prophet who forgave the murderer of His uncle who was His
supporter and the leader of his army. At the time of the capture of Mecca, His
slogan was “today is the day of mercy”. While the residents of Mecca had
repeatedly killed many of His family and followers in war, He treated them in a
friendly and kindly way. In His mercy, He even turned the house of the leader of
the pagan community of the Hejaz into an embassy building. He also gave Abu-Sofyan
(the pagan leader) the freedom and independence to continue his plots and
sabotage against the Muslims!
The religion whose Leader asked people at pulpit to forgive Him
and punish Him if he had oppressed anyone inadvertently! Now how do we accept
that this Islam has become an executioner which torments its followers severely
and strangles the whole society by horrifically punishing everyone who protests
against even the lowest level of governmental agents even the low grade one,
will be punished horribly?!!
I have asked the leaders and the theoreticians of
state-controlled religion to present their arguments in a live debate on TV and
let me present my clear arguments and decisive reasons too. This debate would
allow the world to judge better the validity of the concept of state-controlled
religion. Our merciful God would be cleared of this accusation that is result of
the actions of this regime during thirty one years.
Yes, mixing governance and Islam
has always been a carnal idea. This worldly approach to Islam has always led to
numerous forms of sin and degenerations. As we see in the history of Bani-Umaya
and Bani-Abbas, huge group of Muslims left Islam and became heretics or joined
other religions. Today if the pressures and suppression of religious despotism
were removed from this country, you will see that the result of combining
religion and politics has been nothing, but depriving all the people of
monotheism and spirituality.
