Read the full text of Sharifa Zarini’s letter, Ramin Hosseinpanahi’s mother, quoted from Campaign.
This is a letter by a mother from a small town in Iran’s Kurdistan, a mother whose heart is in turmoil every day, because her dear son may be executed in a nearby prison after the end of Ramadan. Do you know, what this means? Just thought of this tragedy, I shake to my core, and I detest the word execution.
I heard you are a mother yourself and you have two girls, so you can move away from politics for a moment and hear me with your heart.
I am a pained mother, I’ve known the pain thirty years ago, and I’ve been wandering looking for my children for many years, children who had talked about justice and tried to improve the situation. But here everything is forbidden. We live in hell, and these days, my life is downright an abyss.
