know him are still bewildered as to why he was arrested? He is a man of
peace. How could that be a crime? He is a
man against hatred. How could that be a crime? He is a man
for dialogue. How could that be a crime?
We still don't know. But what we know is that his wife
and children are anxious to see him back in their arm safe.
I often talked to him and he was outrageous as to the possibility of someone attacking his country. Although he was a critique of the status queue, yet he did not want to see his nation destroyed.
Let us also not forget the 3 others who are in the same condition. Scholars Haleh Esfandiari, Kian Tajbakhsh and Parinaz Azima. I am sure their families are as anxious to see them safe as I am. They have been all arrested on "Security related charges." A label that I still do not understand. Security against whom and for what I ask myself? Is inviting a few guests to a program a crime? And a security related charge at that? I still don't understand. What crime is it to think differently? I do not know.
I wake up every morning hoping to hear on the radio or read on the Net on good news. But there are none. I say to myself, what can I do to make their families happier but I can't come up with one. I hope this letter does the job.
