University as Graveyard

Death-possessed mullahs in Iran, as Amil Imani strikingly reports, are turning the country’s campuses into mausoleums:

Instead of adorning the landscape [university grounds] with statues of great scientists and scholars to inspire the young to life achievement, the mullahs bring corpses of their victims and bury them there, victims who had been hoodwinked by the fascist Islamists and had lost their lives in implementing the schemes of Allah’s frauds.                                                                                

The charlatan mullahs sanitize their wicked deeds that have caused the death of their victims by calling them martyrs and affording them an honorable burial place. It is yet another way of the mullahs’ ways of attracting new recruits from the ranks of the young. 

Imani’s account of the history and motivation of the mullahs’ morbid ideology is very informative, and it speaks volumes about the monolithic evil that pro-democracy students and other dissenters in Iran are up against.
