Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei
Motghan website reports that in the wake of the leader's trip, Qom is hovering
under strict security measures and they hope that their letter would affect the
Supreme Leader and lead him to repent from his sins against the people.
The clerics and seminarians of Qom and Najaf anticipating possible accusation from the government, stress that they are not "foreign elements" and are "deeply concerned about Iran's national security and independence."
The letter repeats the allegations of vote fraud in the 2009 presidential elections and maintains that based on new evidence surfacing everyday regarding the elections, the supreme leader is "directly responsible for this crime and great betrayal."
They also condemn the treatment of political detainees in the aftermath of the election protests.
The dissident clerics accuse the Islamic Republic of using policies that have discredited the clergy amongst the people and urge the establishment and the supreme leader to reconsider their ways.
