Mrs. Gohar Eshghi, the mother of Sattar Beheshti, a blogger who was killed in detention by the Iranian regime’s FATA police, wrote a letter expressing her sympathy with protesters arrested outside Evin Prison.
Her letter reads in part, “I consider silence, treason to you all because you have always supported me. I have to pay you back for your kindness.
Dear Akram Neghabi, I heard that your husband was mistreated so that he can feel how they treated your child, or maybe they were trying to tell you that we will make you disappear like your loved ones.
“Simin Avazzadeh, mother of Omid Ali Shenas, my good friend of hard times, it is as if a meaningful silence has engulfed the entire country.
“My spiritual brothers and sisters, I say now that I will always be with you, and I have no fear of threats made to myself or to my daughter. If I was to remain silent, they would have made me silent many years ago. However, with my broken heart, I say that my daughter and I are willing to accept any risk against our lives; we are willing to confront any behavior or conduct in order to defend our family and the blood of my slain son.”
