Commander of security forces in Qom: 500 Sufis have been arrested

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi.
AFTAB, the regime-run website reports that in the recent clashes in Qom 500 Sufis were arrested. Commander Taheri, the director of the security forces in Qom, in an interview with the political reporter of AFTAB said: "Every one of the 500 arrested were armed with guns and knives and were dangerous. There were also 150 people who were severely injured but no one was killed."

Editors note: It is entirely against the Nematollahi beliefs for any of the devotees to carry any form of weapon…gun, knives or anything else. This once again is another instance of lies and false accusation of the regime against peaceful people who “threaten” them.
