I was also a political prisoner during shah’s regime. That’s precisely why I oppose the repressive policies of the Islamic Republic as well. People of Iran did not made a revolution to keep putting political dissidents, including recent leaders of IRI government, behind bars, execute young people for participation in demonstrations, imprison more than 30 journalists, close opposition newspapers, etc, and all this in a period of six months!

Larijani calls these policies an alternative way by the Islamic Republic, I call them repressive policies as old as any in Iran’s history.

I had respect for Larijani, but unfortunately he proved in this video that to survive in the Islamic Republic as a leader you need to suppress truth as much as you need to suppress freedoms.

The credibility of Mr Mohammad Javad Larijani could be assessed by a look at his own past.

He has - in his capacity as head of Iran's Human Rights Council - defended the stoning of people for adultery.

Also, his commitment to countering racism is demonstrated by his reference to the Barak Obama as "that ni***r."

These are just 2 of his 'humanitarian' positions.

It is indicative of the regime's commitment to human rights that, of all the people in Iran, Larijani has been put in charge of this watchdog, while at the same time independent human rights activists are languishing in jails with some of them facing the charge of "muharibah" (sedition against God), which is a capital offense.

In 1988, when fielding questions about mass executions, Larijani, who was deputy foreign minister at the time, said: "I have a good number of birth records, it is about 4%, we have two million new people each year. I am a positive person, optimistic minded."
