MP tells UNESCO Sheikh Nimr execution 'unforgivable sin'

Tehran, Jan 3, IRNA – Chairman of Majlis Education and Research Commission in a message to director general of United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said that it is the historic responsibility of the international organizations such as the cultural entity to condemn Sheikh Nimr execution and prevent recurrence of such crimes.

In his message, Zahedi congratulated Irina Bokova on the new year, hoping that 2016 will be a year of success in implementing its major aims in the fields of education, culture and science.

Zahedi told Bokova that the new Christian year started with the execution of a freedom-seeking mankind by a dictatorial regime.

'A regime which supports extremist and Takfiri terrorists on the one hand and suppress the voice of freedom-seeking of the opponents inside the country with sword and bullet on the other.'

Killing of a great scholar such as Sheikh Nimr who held the banner of freedom-seeking, justice-seeking and human rights as well as countering extremist and violent currents of extremism is an unforgivable sin, wrote the MP.

'All the international bodies including UNESCO are responsible to denounce the anti-human move and adopt measures to prevent repetition such acts, he said.
Saudi despotic regime will face the consequences of the barbaric move in future,' read the message.
