Iranian regime’s official: sentence for protesting is hanging or amputation of legs and hands…

A member of the Iranian regime’s Assembly of Experts expressed worries on Wednesday about the potential of further popular protests against the clerical regime, and warned, “Anyone who intends to incite unrest must be confronted with force.”

According to the state-run Parliament News, while speaking at a mosque in the city of Qom, mullah Mesbah Yazdi said, “If some seek to create unrest or stage a coup d’état, then they must be confronted using force. … Talk of freedom, democracy and human rights would not be relevant in such cases.”

Yazdi said those who “appear on streets and shout” do not deserve to be talked to. “They are mohareb [enemies of God] and the sentence for a mohareb is hanging or amputation of legs and hands or exile.”

“The enemies seek to harm and eliminate the velayat-e faqih [absolute clerical rule],” Yazdi added, referring to the Iranian regime’s founding principle.
