This video aired on Iran's state-own TV on June 20, 2010. Mohammad Javad Ardashir Larijani, Secretary General of Iran's High Council for Human Rights on this video said:
"Look at anti-Islam movement. Anti-Islamic movement is a disgraceful feature of western society. Just recently, stupid Prime Minister of Denmark came into power, that by his look you can say how idiot and stupid he is, in his first speech, he said: "I have problem with Islam." of course, he is very small drib in front of Islam. Islam is a huge rock. Since past 14 centuries, many people battered their heads on this rock (Islam) and only their heads have destroyed. what I want to say is that they are very disgraceful. Why did he (danish Prime Minister) say these stuff? Because based on their own statistics, probably on 2025, Copenhagen will be the first European city that most of it's citizens will become Muslim."In Iran we do not have Human Rights, we only have Islamic limitations so if anyone dares to speak up, criticize Islam and Islamic laws, as Secretary General of Iran's High Council for Human Rights put it, will be destroyed. In fact I have heard this expression over and over from different people, whenever I criticized Islam, they warned me by saying: "if anyone took a fight with Islam, will be destroyed". I think Mullahs propagated this expression among Iranians.
I have two points to raise on this video. First, since Islamic republic of Iran and in general Islamic countries have different understanding of Human Rights then they have to use another term instead of messing around with principal of Human Rights. I think they should use "Islamic limitations", as you might know, when you surrender yourself to Islam then you have no rights.
Second, if we had a little freedom and there were no death threats for leaving Islam, I can say at least 30 to 40 percent of Iranians would leave Islam in no time. Even now that it is very risky to criticize Islam, anytime people feel comfortable enough, they will ridicule Islam, Islamic laws and specially mullahs. Without a slightest doubt, mullahs definitely are the most hated group in Iran.
If Larijani and like minded people are so sure of themselves and their religion, Islam, then let's change the laws and give people freedom to choose then we will see who is right. Under current conditions, leaving Islam is equal to death.
