Shaikh Abdol-Hamid asked judicial and security officials to take immediate action against the culprits involved in rape of dozens of women in Iranshahr city of Iranian Baluchistan.
The official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid quoted “SunniOnline” which has published his interview about a news announced by Mawlana Mohammad Tayyeb Mullazahi, Friday imam of Iranshahr. He informed people on Eid day that at least 41 women had been raped by a gang in the city and officials must take action.
In an interview with “SunniOnline”, president of Darululoom Zahedan termed the long-term insecurity of Iranshahr a reason behind the mass rape cases.
He told the official website of the Sunni community in Iran: “Iranshahr has been suffering from insecurity for many years. This insecurity is unprecedented. Despite demands by different public figures and MPs, the management of the city could not control it and made the town safe.”
“When people’s wealth and souls are not secured, their dignity also will be unsafe. When sinister people see themselves free of any persecution, punishment and law, they will commit any kind of crimes,” Friday imam of Zahedan said.
He asked the pertinent authorities to review in the ongoing “incompetent” management of the city and change members of the security council of Iranshahr County.
The most influential Iranian Sunni leader said: “There should be a firm decision by the officials to bring peace back to the city. People are requested to calm down and city’s Ulama should carry out their duties by legal channels.”
In a talk with ILNA news agency, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid called on the victims to file their complaints without any hesitation and no one should tease the victims.
“People are asking us about the case and their honor and feelings have been targeted; so the judiciary should follow the case and inform masses,” he concluded his talk with SunniOnline.
