A group of 200 prominent clerics across Iran have addressed the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres to rebuke the execution of 37 Saudi citizens urging him to take serious stand against the move, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
Signatories of the letter, including MPs, prayer leaders, professors and managers of Sunni seminaries have sent the letter following the execution of Saudi activists and opposition figures and silence of the international bodies regarding the incident.
Part of the letter by Iranian Sunni scholars runs,” Saudi government has claimed these people had terrorist ideologies and masterminded terrorist organizations targeting the security of the country” criticizing the international bodies for inaction regarding the crime.”
Iranian clerics expressed regret that Saudi Arabia is following the policy of crackdown, clear violation of the rights of its citizens, intervention in regional countries and also sparking sectarian rift among different denominations.
The scholars slammed Saudi government for committing the crime as Riyadh has not cleared itself of the previous crime regarding the brutal killing and dismembering of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Iranian figures demanded the UN Secretary General to denounce Saudi crime in order to prevent similar instances in future.
