A judge in Iran sentenced a Christian man to have his lips burned with cigarettes. The sentence was carried out and was in done in public in the city of Kermanshah. The National Council of Resistance of Iran denounced the cruel punishment and said:
The silence of the world community, especially of western countries, vis-à-vis these medieval punishments under the excuse of having nuclear talks with Iran has intensified the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran. …This will ultimately embolden the Iranian regime to continue its nuclear projects more than before.
This is not the only case of this cruel persecution that is taking place in Iran. There are literally hundreds of Christians trapped in Iranian prisons. But this evil goes beyond Iran. There are actually tens of thousands of Christian families in Pakistan who are slaves to Muslims. We are currently working very hard to liberate them from Islamic bondage.
