    Regime bans funeral ceremony for slain girl
    6/22/2009 8:12:16 PM
    The Iranian regime has prevented a funeral ceremony to be held for a young girl killed by its agents during the recent protests in Tehran.
    The funeral for Neda Salehi Agha Soltan, 27, was supposed to be held on Monday, June 22, at the Niloufar Mosque in Tehran’s Abbas Abad district. But, the Iranian regime’s agents contacted the mosque on Monday morning at 9:00 local time and ordered the mosque’s officials to cancel the service. Other mosques have also been issued directives warning them not to hold a funeral ceremony for Neda.
    The young girl was killed on Saturday by the regime’s suppressive forces amid protests in Tehran against the clerical regime. The gruesome video of her painful death with her father watching over her, which was distributed on the internet and showed her father desperately asking her not to be afraid, has stunned Iranians around the world.

    I think we see the Islam that has taken power....but the Islam closer to what the Prophet Muhammad (PBAH) would have wanted is that of youth in the street calling for justice. To murder one is to murder all of mindkind....The leaders of Iran have done just that, Murdered.

    This story has stunned people around the world, whether they are Iranian or not. What a brutal regime. I, for one, hope that the people of Iran succeed in bringing it down.
