Boroujerdi European Office

newMr. Seyed Hossein Kazemeini Boroujerdi is an Iranian liberal and secular minded cleric who had advocated the separation between religion and state and have jailed since 2006 because of his opposition to religious dictatorship and autocracy in Iran. Indeed, Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi simply urges the separation of the government of Iran from Islamic rule. He advocates the unalienable right of the individual to hold personal religious beliefs and to exercise freedom of speech and press. For this he has been subjected to imprisonment and torture under continuous threat of death. However, he has continued his campaign from within Tehran’s grim Evin Prison.
Mr. Boroujerdi first went public with his support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and protestations against the abuses of theocratic rule. He condemned Islamic fundamentalism, radicalism and terror. Rejecting anti-Semitism and advocating religious freedom, he led benediction ceremonies in the presence of Shiites and Sunnis, Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians and Baha’is. He called for abolishment of capital punishment, and cruel, inhuman, degrading treatment or punishment such as torture, stoning and whipping. He established welfare centers for helping the poor and assisting victims of natural disasters and condemned personal financial gain from religious activities.
His effective efforts and plans are the best solution to make a new Iran and Middle East free from religious violence and inhuman laws due to a demonstrably incorrect interpretation of Islam.
