London, 25.1.08–The Iranian government released the identities of six young Baluch men that maybe executed or hanged in a near future after they were summarily tried without the presence of lawyers on charges of being members People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PMRI).
The government initially refused to disclose their identities because of the fear that the public may know their innocence and protest against the regime. Under public pressure, the government identified them as:
1. Mowlavi Abdolghodoos Mollazahi, the son in law of Molana Mohamad Omar Sarbazi, the author of more than 100 books, who was murdered few months ago by poisoning. He was the headmaster of the girl school that the Iranian regime claimed that People’s Resistance Movement of Iran had planned to explode it. The contradiction is very clear. If the People’s Resistance Movement of Iran had planned to explode the school, how its headmaster has become a key member of the Resistance?
2. Mowlavi Mohammad Yousof Mollazahi, another son in law of Molana Mohamad Omar Sarbazi, a teacher of the school.
The rest were students of the same school.
3. Ebrahim Mollazahi, student
4. Zakaria H, student
5. Habibollah B, student
6. Yaser Sarwan, student
For those who are familiar with Baluchistan, they are confident that these people had no any kind of relationship or connection with the People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PMRI). This organization has already categorically denied any relationship or connection with them and announced that these were innocent people and the security forces are responsible for their possible death.
These people were arrested in Chahe Jamal, Iranshar, where the security forces attacked a base of People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PMRI)
December 13, 2007. The security forces claimed that four top members of this organization were killed in the incident but PRMI rejected this claim and said only one member of them was killed and the rest were able to rescue them and moved to other bases.
The security forces began a clampdown on the area and arrested a few hundred innocent people that some of them were released later. Some of them are still in custody. The six of them were tortured to confess on crimes they have not committed. The families and relatives have been looking for them but so far they have not received any information about them.
Baluchistan has been a hotbed of resistance against the Iranian regime since the beginning of the revolution. The people of Baluchistan are Sunnis and they have been the target of severe discrimination and persecution and yet, they have continued to fight for establishing democracy in Iran. The Iranian regime has followed a policy of starving Baluch people by depriving them from government jobs, imposing severe restrictions on them and closing their businesses.
Few examples of discrimination of the government’s policies in Baluchistan show clearly how the Iranian regime is determined to keep them backwards and make them the subject of worse discriminatory policies.
1. The government officials announced that 76 percent of the Baluch people were living under poverty line.
2. There has not been a president, prime minister, minister, deputy minister, chief executive, ambassador, army general, and any other high ranking officials in the Iranian government since the beginning of the revolution from the Baloch or Sunni community. There are between 15 and 23 million Sunnis in Iran.
3. According to a research by the United Nations, the Baluch children were found to have the highest IQ in the country and yet, from 70, 000 students in the universities of Baluchistan even 1,000 of them are not Baluch.
4. From 700 academic staff of Baluchistan universities only ten of them are Baluch who have educated themselves using their own means while the rest have received government scholarships.
5. This is a video film of 2 Baloch young men being beaten by the security forces.

The Baluch people are among the toughest people in the region. They have never been defeated by any conqueror or King. They do not accept surrender and submission. They continue to fight until they reach their objective which is a federal system in Iran in which all Iranian people enjoy equal rights regardless of their colour, race, origin, religion or background.
