Occupational Islamic Republic set to destroy yet another Iranian cultural heritage site

More news about the occupational Islamic Republic's campaign to destroy Iranian cultural heritage sites is being reported by the respected CAIS institute (Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies). The tomb of the great Iranian nationalist - Pirooz Nahavandi - is set to be destroyed after a request by Arabs from the "International Union for Muslim Scholars"! Pirooz Nahavandi is the person who was enslaved under the Arab occupation of Persia and who witnessed the destruction that the Arabo-Muslims were bringing upon his country and people. Pirooz bravely sacrificed his life as he put to death the second Arab Caliph (Umar Al-Khattab) in 645 AD. "Abu Lolo" is the Arabic name given to this Iranian freedom fighter whose actual name was Pirooz Nahavandi.

The occupational Islamic Republic has given order for the destruction of this great Iranian historical figures shrine which has led to a large crowd of Iranians, who are aware of their cultural/historical heritage and who are not brainwashed, gathering outside the governor's office in Kashan to protest this systematic destruction of Iranian cultural heritage by the Islamic Republic which has been carried out ever since its inception - this is nothing but cultural genocide which has been a policy of the occupational Islamic Republic since day one with the intention to impose a non-Iranian/anti-Iranian Islamic history/culture in its place.

Mohammad-Ali E. from Isfahan

LONDON, (CAIS) -- The tomb of Firuzan commonly known as Emāmādeh Abu-lolo (or Abu Lulu) in Kashahn, Isfahan province is being destroyed by the order of the Islamic Regime.

A large crowd of Iranians have gathered outside the governor's office on Tuesday, June 26th, to voice their objection regarding the destruction of the Iranian heritage, and a shrine which was one of the symbols of Iranian resistance against the Arab invaders in 7th century CE, and to some, a Shia and a revered Sufi.

Umar al-Khattab, the second Moslem Caliph was put to death by Firuzan in 645 CE. It is said that Firuzan was a POW captured after the fall of Ctesiphon in what is today known as Iraq, and sold as a slave. A parvenu Arab leader called Mughira ibn Shu’ba bought him and took him to Medina in Arabia for slavery work.

Most probably Firuzan was a Zoroastrian (by some accounts he was a priest), as the majority of Iranian were at the time of Arab occupation of Iran in 7th century.

“His [Firuzan] action was in response to atrocities that were committed by Arab-Muslim invaders in Iran, which resulted in massacre, rape, looting of our country – we Iranians never forgot nor forgive their crimes against us”, said one of the protestors.

Some Arab, as well as committed Muslim historians, in order to undermine Firuzan’s bravery and heroism have claimed (ultimately all derived from Ibn Shihab account) that he murdered Umar after an argument over the tax levy.

During the Safavid era and the rise of Shia Islam to power, the dynasty named him Bābā Shojā ul-Din (the one who is brave in the cause of religion) and claimed that he was a devout Shia and a martyr.

Another angry protester said: "they say he is not buried here - or some say he wasn't Muslim at all - so what? - as far as we concern this edifice represents him, our faith and resistance against the uncivilised invaders" - and another one added: "if Abu Lolo was an Arab, they would have erect a golden dome on top of his shrine, rather than destroying it - but no, no - they destroy his shrine, just because he was an Iranian - a noble Iranian - this is an insult to Iranian nation".

Mohammad Salim Al'awa, the Secretary-General of the International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS), who believes God have "created women for pregnancy and childbirth" purposes speaking to Al-Arabiat New-agency said: "the request for its destruction was delivered to Iran by a group of Arab representatives a few months ago, after the Doha assembly at the beginning of the year. At the assembly a large number of Sunni scholars asked Iran for the destruction of the tomb".

"Imagine the Germans asking Britain to destroy the graves of the brains behind the British plan to kill Hitler [Operation Foxley] during WWII, sine it is considered an insult to Protestants - would the British accept that? - the murder of Omar by Firuz[an] wasn't to do with religion, it was simply removing a despot and a tyrant from the face of the earth - as the British wanted to do the same with Hitler", said N. one of the protestors outside the governor's office in Kashan.

Firuzan mausoleum located on the road from Kashan to Fins, constructed in an eleventh century distinctive Persian-Khwarezmian dynastic architectural style, consisted of a courtyard, porch and conical dome decorated with turquoise coloured tiles, and painted ceilings. The Original date of it's construction is unknown, but in second-half of fourteen century it was fully restored and a new tombstone was placed over his grave.

The regime has a problem with truth, but what they fear most is justice. They think they can destroy the Iranian spirit by humiliation and desecration of Iran. They think they can impose on us their filthy beliefs by repeated lies and using pressure tactics. Iran is much stronger. We will defeat and banish the Ayatoilets and their satanic cult to hell. I personally am looking forward to crush their skulls and dance on their filthy brains very soon.

Is the International Union for Muslim Scholars backed by the IRI? If so, I'm betting they made the request because they know to try to do so directly would tick off too many Iranians. By doing it indirectly (this is assuming that the IUMS is backed by the IRI), they stave off some of the heat and know the Iranian populace would probably not dare risking try to put their lives on the line to save this tomb. Is Abu Lolo a mockery of a name in Arabic (does it have a negative meaning)? As far as destroying Iran's heritage, I remember reading the IRI's changing of names right after the revolution to try to make people forget. They only succeeded in searing hatred of the regime in the very citizens they did the "revolution" for.

Hey Matt,

It seems that the IUMS is a predominantly Arab organization although it says that its made up of Muslims from across the world:

Well, it is abundantly clear that ever since the occupation of Iran, Arab invaders systematically either discredited Iranian bravery or erased them from any written sources to keep Iranians uninformed or safeguard their power. The current regime’s efforts at erasing Iranian identity has had just the opposite effect, it has awakened Iranians and encouraged them to learn and educate themselves about their past. The more the Mullahs try to hide the Iranian identity, the more Iranians try to educate themselves of Arab atrocities in Iran.
