I talked to some Iranian bloggers and all told me to go public about these threats and write down some of them here. I removed all cursing and foul language out and I write down here some of the threats that you can make sense of what these fanatics are all about:
- I cut your throat
- I pray god to take off your eyes
- I swear if I see you i will choke you with my bare hands
- I know well your worst end, remember that remember that
- Now I will kill you. Allah is great.
- The death is coming to you soon soon.
- You will die in bad wayyyyy and slowly and u will see inshallah
- and so on.
I have publicly criticized Iranian human rights violations, Islamic doctrine and practices, Iranian public policy and etc. I believe these systematic threats organized by government agencies, radical mullahs and some fanatics here and there. Some of the blogs I write for include the following:
Freedom of speech may sound unpleasant and offensive to some but in fact it also secures everyone's right to discuss and bring reasonable arguments on the table. Freedom of speech is crucial for civil society and every individual's mind and thought, and in today's world no one has a right to avoid being offended but death threats is different story!
I deeply appreciate all the support that you have given to me, specially from Andrew Ford Lyons in Committee to Protect Bloggers that instantly published an article and condemned these threats, Alistair and couple of friends that I am not sure I can name them but I owe all of them a debt of gratitude.
