Schwester rechnet mit Irans Staatschef Khamenei ab


Der Druck auf die iranische Regierung wächst, nachdem sich jetzt auch die Schwester von Ajatollah Ali Khamenei öffentlich gegen die Regierung gestellt hat. In einem offenen Brief kritisiert Badri Hosseini Khamenei die blutige Niederschlagung landesweiter Demonstrationen und betont, dass das „despotische Kalifat“ ihres Bruders nichts als Leid gebracht habe. „Ich denke, es ist an der Zeit, zu erklären, dass ich gegen die Taten meines Bruders bin“.

Auslöser des Briefs ist offenbar die Verhaftung ihrer Tochter Farideh Moradkhani, die Ende November per Video die internationale Isolierung Irans gefordert hatte und daraufhin festgenommen wurde. „Wenn sie meine Tochter mit Gewalt festnehmen, ist es klar, dass sie tausendmal mehr Gewalt gegen andere unterdrückte Jungen und Mädchen anwenden, die unmenschlichen Grausamkeiten ausgesetzt sind“, so Badri Hosseini Khamenei.


In ihrem Brief ruft sie außerdem die Iranischen Revolutionsgarden dazu auf, ihre Waffen niederzulegen und das Volk zu unterstützen, „bevor es zu spät ist“.


Sie habe es immer als ihre Pflicht angesehen, mit ihrem Bruder – dem geistlichen und politischen Oberhaupt Irans – über die Bedürfnisse des Volkes zu sprechen, „doch er hörte nicht auf mich und ließ weiter unschuldige Menschen unterdrücken und umbringen“. Deshalb habe sie den Kontakt zu ihm abgebrochen. Ihre Familie habe schon bald nach der Revolution im Jahr 1979 gegen dieses „kriminelle System“ Widerstand geleistet. So habe insbesondere ihr Ehemann, Ali Teherani, jahrelang aus dem irakischen Exil heraus die Islamische Republik in Radiosendungen kritisiert – nach seiner Rückkehr im Jahr 1995 habe Teherani zehn Jahre im Gefängnis verbracht; er starb im Oktober dieses Jahres.



Der Brief im Wortlaut:


In the name of God


Losing a child and being away from your child is a great sadness for every mother.

Many mothers were bereaved during the last four decades.


I think it is appropriate now to declare that I oppose my brother's actions and I express my sympathy with all mothers mourning the crimes of the Islamic Republic regime, from the time of Khomeini to the current era of the despotic caliphate of Ali Khamenei.


Like all Iranian mourning mothers, I am also sad to be away from my daughter.


When they arrest my daughter with violence, it is clear that they apply thousands of times more violence to other oppressed boys and girls who are subjected to inhumane cruelty.


Our family's opposition and struggle against this criminal system began a few months after the revolution. The crimes of this system, the suppression of any dissenting voice, the imprisonment of the most educated and the most caring youth of this land, the most severe punishments, and the large-scale executions began from the very beginning.


Right from the start, my husband Ali Tehrani was against this system and the theocratic government. He was the voice of the people's desire for freedom, and because of it, he endured all kinds of hardships, including being imprisoned twice in 1360's (1980's) and spending ten years in prison in his old age.


During the last twenty years, my daughter Faride has endured all kinds of hardships and imprisonments with her civil and human rights activities, including supporting political prisoners and their families and trying to stop unjust executions.


As my human duty, many times I brought the voice of the people to the ears of my brother Ali Khamenei decades ago. However, after I saw that he did not listen and continued the way of Khomeini in suppressing and killing innocent people, I cut off my relationship with him.


My concern has always been and will always be the people, especially the women of Iran.


I believe that the regime of the Islamic Republic of Khomeini and Ali Khamenei has brought nothing but suffering and oppression to Iran and Iranians. The people of Iran deserve freedom and prosperity, and their uprising is legitimate and necessary to achieve their rights. I hope to see the victory of the people and the overthrow of this tyranny ruling Iran soon.


Ali Khamenei's Revolutionary Guards and mercenaries should lay down their weapons as soon as possible and join the people before it is too late.


I am so sorry that due to physical ailments, I cannot participate in protest movements as I should. But in heart and soul, I am with the people of Iran.


My brother does not listen to the voice of the people of Iran and wrongly considers the voice of his mercenaries and moneygrubbers to be the voice of the Iranian people. He rightly deserves the disrespectful and impudent words he uses to describe the oppressed, but brave people of Iran.


May the people's rightful struggle to achieve freedom and democracy be realized as soon as possible.
