One of the most important initiatives of our organization(s) AFDI/SIOA, apart from the ad campaigns, First Amendment lawsuits, activism, etc., is our work helping to safety those who are under the boot of the sharia.
I have forged an alliance with Aynaz Anni Cyrus, a brave human rights activist and former Muslim, whose mission it is to bring hope and healing to those forced to live under Islamic rule.
In the wake of Obama’s evil transfer of billions of dollars to the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, Iran has escalated its human rights abuses and unimaginable torture and oppression of those whom they consider to be enemies of Allah.
Aynaz is working to save a young Iranian man, Afshin Sohrabzadeh. We can make a difference.
Afshin Sohrabzadeh is a 25-year-old Iranian man and political prisoner. He was recently serving a 25-year prison term in “internal exile” at a remote prison in the south of Iran, for alleged charges of “Moharebeh” – translated as “waging war against Allah” — which is considered a crime in Islamic law and a capital crime in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Afshin reportedly experienced severe torture during his interrogation in prison by Deputy Intelligence Service of Kamyaran. His nose was broken, he was given electroshock, burned by metal sticks and raped. He is now reported to be vomiting blood and suffering from grave respiratory problems. Amnesty International also reported: “He was in urgent need of specialized medical treatment outside prison. He suffers from a life-threatening gastrointestinal condition, exacerbated by prolonged lack of adequate treatment.”
After much delay, some Iranian Human Rights organizations released a joint statement in support of Afshin. He finally received a 20-day medical furlough on June 25, 2016 was extracted to a safe house at that point.
There is a campaign designed as a rescue mission for Afshin, arranged by Live up to Freedom, founded by Aynaz Anni Cyrus.
