Brazilian author blasts provocative comments by deposed Shah son

Tehran, Jan 6, IRNA - Brazilian lyricist and novelist warned son of deposed Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi on his anti-Iran comments.

“Shut up. SAVAK is dead, and the Iranian people will rally to support their country if you ever ask for another coup d'etat like the one orchestrated by CIA in 1953,” Paulo Coelho wrote on his Twitter message released recently.

SAVAK literally known as 'Organization of National Intelligence and Security' was the secret police, domestic security and intelligence service of Pahlavi dynasty.

Responding to a Twitter user on his first tweet, he said, “I fully support the Iranian people, not morons like this 'heir of the throne' asking for foreign interference, like many here on twitter.”

After some Iranians took to the streets to protest against the unemployment and high prices, and, with the provocation of certain foreign and anti-Islamic Revolution media, some elements penetrated the lines of protestors to drive the peaceful protests towards violence, and US President Donald Trump overtly supported the rioters assuming that the former US administration had made a mistake about Iran riots in 2009.

Paulo Coelho born August 24, 1947 is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist and the recipient of numerous international awards. He is best known for his widely translated novel The Alchemist. He is the writer with the highest number of social media followers reaching over 29.5 million fans through his Facebook page and 12.2 million followers on Twitter. A keen user of electronic media, in 2014 he uploaded his personal papers online to create a virtual Paulo Coelho Foundation. Coelho's works have also been translated into Persian language in Iran.
