We begin tonight’s edition of A Window to the Fatherland with Dr. Alireza Nourizadeh reading one of his poems from the book of his collected works.
Dr. Alireza Nourizadeh:
We continue the program with talking to our special guest of every Thursday, Dr. Mohsen Sazegara, for his views about news of Iran and the Middle East.
I am still puzzled and thinking how on earth Mohammad Ali Najafi, the prodigy of Iranian Sanati university and the MIT, the man who as deputy minister ran Iran’s budgeting and planning organisation and the country’s tourism ministry, and as the former mayor of Tehran revealing hundreds of cases of corruptions among the officials, could have murdered his second wife!
While Najafi was the mayor of Tehran he had attracted Khamenei’s animosity and his son Mujtaba also disliked Najafi for his honesty and managerial qualities in the middle of the group of corrupt people who run the regime.
The regime had sent one of its young operatives (Parastoo in Persian, meaning a cute bird) to Najafi as a honeytrap to steal the heart of this 70 years old man and later she is reported to have been working with the regime’s dirty intelligence agencies.
Tonight my guest is Dr Sadigh Yazdchi who would share with us his views about the state of affairs in our almost ruined country.
Dr Sadigh Yazdchi:
Unfortunately over the last forty years the Iranians society has gone through untold trauma and calamities that we now witness its consequences before our eyes.
These corruptions in the minds and behavior of our people are nothing new and we have had similar situations in our history many centuries ago when despots have ruled our motherland.
The Constitution Revolution of 1905 in Iran was a major social movement to wipe out these corruptions from the minds of our people and build a new nation. But sadly forty years ago when the current regime came to power that course wasreversed and we are where we are now.
Today Iran does not have a government. Instead, a clique of corrupt and despotic people whose main interest is gathering wealth and caring for their sexual lust have taken over our country and nothing is left of humanity in the larger society.
I believe Najafi is the victim of trying to expose some of this corruption.
