By INU Staff

INU - On Tuesday, a series of clashes between Iranian security forces and the Sufi religious sect known as Gonabadi dervishes resulted in several deaths and hundreds of arrests. To some extent, this development can be seen as an outgrowth of the much broader conflict between the Iranian regime and anti-government protesters, which came to a head in early January. According to Iranian opposition groups like the National Council of Resistance of Iran, relevant demonstrations have continued to the present day, albeit on a smaller scale than the mass uprising which was repressed by security forces after spreading to well over 100 Iranian cities.

INU - In Mashhad, in 1992, religious authorities in charge of the shrine of the 8th Imam Reza decided they wanted to enlarge their compound. The destruction of an adjacent residential area of dilapidated homes and shacks called Mahalle Tollab was necessary, which resulted in a riot. This surprised authorities, who realized that they must weaken the protesters’ solidarity. They created factions by announcing, “The people whose houses were seized and destroyed demand to be distinguished from provocateurs and saboteurs.” The “provocateurs and saboteurs” were then identified and hanged, which acted as a message to everyone else. In less than two weeks, the protests dwindled away.

INU - As New Year’s Day dawned, so did the fifth day of protests in Iran. While President Rouhani acknowledged the importance of attention to economic and political realities and the people’s right to protest, he seemed to ignore reality when he proclaimed, “There is a minority, a tiny group, who would come in and do something: to chant slogans against the law and the will of the people, to insult the sanctities and values of the revolution, and to destroy public property. Our country will round them up good.”
