grief, of the slaying of the 9-year-old Kian Pirfalak 'Javidnam' the
immortal by the security
forces while under suspected to be 'a terrorist'. You can, if you want,
follow his and especially his grieving mothers' story here:
of which I now re-publish two parts of it and the especially the horrible/heinous story about how the mullahs' regimes' security forces keep tormenting his mother Kian's mother mrs. Mahmonir Molaei-Rad. In short and I wished my words were like daggers to the mullahs' regimes' security forces inflicting to them ************!!!

<<Mother of Slain Nine-Year-Old Iranian Boy Forced into Silence
Iranian authorities are exerting intense pressure on the family of Kian Pirfalak, a nine-year-old boy who was killed during nationwide protests last year, ahead of the one-year anniversary of his death. Kian and several other people lost their lives when government forces indiscriminately fired live ammunition on people during protests in the southwestern city of Izeh on November 16, 2022. Officials have labeled the Izeh massacre as a <terrorist> act and attributed it to government opponents. The Pirfalak family rejected the claims and said the boy was shot by the security forces in his parent's car. Kian's outspoken mother, Mahmonir Molaei-Rad, publicly accused Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his security forces of being responsible for her son's death. A source from Izeh tells IranWire that security officials have now forced Molaei-Rad into silence by issuing threats against her and the entire family. The source hints that the authorities are apprehensive about potential large gatherings taking place on the anniversary of Kian's death. In June, Molaei-Rad organized a commemoration to mark what would have been Kian's 10th birthday and called on all Iranians to join. The Iranian diaspora responded to the call by holding ceremonies across the globe on that day. In the days leading up to Kian's birthday, security agents conducted a raid on Molaei-Rad's home, engaged in violent confrontations with family members and confiscated several personal items. And on Kian's birthday, Molaei-Rad's 21-year-old cousin, Pouya, was shot and killed by security forces while he was heading to the boy's gravesite in the village of Parchestan, Izeh. According to IranWire sources, security institutions interrogated Molaei-Rad after Pouya's death and conditioned the handover of his body to the family's silence. <The Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families have retreated from public life due to the immense pressure they have experienced and continue to face,> IranWire's source says. Almost no one in Izeh directly communicates with the families, the source says, adding, <They are under intense surveillance.> >>
Shukrah a thousand times mrs. Mahmonir Molaei-Rad for being a more than brave mother and woman of Iran. I pray to Allah to support her in these too difficult, grieving and hard times that only add more grief than you already feel. Bless you.
Long live a free Iran

<<Security Forces Pressure Slain Child's Family and Brand Mother <Seditious>
Concerns are rising as access to the family of the slain child, Kian Pirfalak, has become impossible amid mounting pressures from security forces, and sporadic reports of house arrests, IranWire reveals. The latest situation began on June 11, what would have been the tenth birthday of Kian, a young child who lost his life on November 16 of last year, during nationwide protests. Sources close to Kian's family told IranWire that Islamic Republic security forces have encircled the residence of Kian's parents since Sunday, accompanied by the reported seizure of all household items. Adding to the uncertainty, Kian's uncle took to Twitter, suggesting that they were being harassed and pressured by the security forces. But he refuted reports of house arrests and other reports concerning the family. <The rumors are false: no family members have faced movement restrictions. We appeal to our fellow compatriots to refrain from accepting and spreading baseless rumors,> Kian's uncle said on June 16. Islamic Republic media outlets also launched a scathing attack on Kian's mother, Mahmonir Molaei, branding her as <seditious.> The absence of Kian's mother at her son's birthday gathering, the mystery surrounding her current whereabouts, and the latest revelation of restricted access to the family have only deepened concerns regarding the treatment of this grief-stricken family. In the months following her son's death, Mahmonir Molaei has vehemently criticized the Islamic Republic and demanded justice for her son's killers.>>
Deeply felt opinion by Gino d'Artali: All the mother and family of Kian Pirfalak want is JUSTICE NOW!!! Also for Kian 'Javidnam' the immortal. Allah has his soul.

We are launching the hashtag #Where_Is_Mahmonir? as a rallying call for information on the whereabouts of Mahmonir Molaei-Rad, the mother of Kian Pirfalak, a nine-year-old boy who was killed during nationwide protests last year. Kian and several other Izeh residents lost their lives when government forces fired live ammunition on protesters in the south-western city on November 16. Officials have labeled the Izeh massacre as a <terrorist> act and attributed it to government opponents. Pirfalak's mother rejected the claims at her son's funeral, accusing security forces of firing bullets at the family's car. Security officers had tried to scare Mahmonir and other people away from attending a memorial service for Kian on June 11 this year, which would have marked the boy's 10th birthday. That day, Pouya Molaei-Rad, Mahmonir's 21-year-old cousin, was killed by gunfire from government forces near the cemetery where Kian is laid to rest. A photograph showing Mahmonir lost in thought at her cousin's funeral, with her hands tightly clasped around her knees, was widely shared on social media. According to IranWire sources, security institutions interrogated Mahmonir after Pouya's death, and conditioned the hand-over of his body to the family to her silence. IranWire's attempts to interview Abdullah Izadpanah, Izeh's representative in parliament, have been unsuccessful. Yousefali Savari, the former head of Izeh City Council, who previously taught in the city at the elementary level, was familiar with the Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families. When asked about Mahmonir's current situation, Savari stated, <This is an issue that doesn't concern us. Our lives are governed by the system.> Before abruptly ending the conversation, he said he had no information about the fate of Mahmonir and her family, and that he will not pursue the matter or offer any support to them. Mahmonir's current location remains unknown. Concerns also linger regarding the fate of the Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families.
Is Mahmonir under house arrest?
After the killing of Pouya Molaei-Rad, several sources reported that Mahmonir and her husband Meysam, as well as their other child Radin, have been placed under house arrest at the residence of Meysam's mother. A heightened security presence has been reported in the village where Mahmonir's family resides. A source close to the Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families told IranWire: <Following the tragic incident involving Pouya Molaei-Rad, Mahmonir faced significant pressure, primarily from the security establishment. They tried to portray her as being responsible for Pouya's tragic death, both in the city where Mahmonir resides and on social media platforms used by security agencies.> According to the source, Mahmonir was summoned to the Izeh Intelligence Department after Pouya's death. <She was interrogated for two to three hours, and her Instagram account was shut down during the interrogation,> said the source. The source said that Mahmonir <did not accept> the conditions set for the release of Pouya's body to the family - that Mahmonir ceases her online activity, refrains from seeking justice, and says that security forces were not involved in her child's death. On June 17, reliable sources reported the arrest of Sajjad Pirfalak, an uncle of Kian. The individual who spoke with IranWire said the arrest was part of escalating pressure put on the Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families prior to the release of Pouya's body. <The family was in a dire situation, confused and undecided until several security agents suddenly attacked Sajjad Pirfalak in the city...in an unusually forceful manner.>
<They forcibly put him in a vehicle and took him away. This occurred after Sajjad and his lawyer were summoned multiple times. Eventually, Sajjad was released on a bail of 2 billion tomans ($40,000).> As a result of the pressure exerted on him, the man has put an end to his online activities, the source said. The accusations Sajjad Pirfalak is facing are often used by security institutions to fabricate cases against critics of the Islamic Republic and its officials. <Sajad Pirfalak's charges, such as activities and propaganda against the system and disturbing public order, are general and vague. These accusations can be leveled for minor things such as liking a post on social media, sharing a tweet or posting a simple story,> the source said.
Meysam Pirfalak's Worrying Mental Condition
Kian's father Meysam Pirfalak, his uncle Sajjad, his other uncle Mehrdad and their family lawyer have all faced threats from security institutions. The authorities have summoned them for questioning and filed cases against them. Even Dawood Shahvali, the lawyer representing the Molaei-Rad and Pirfalak families, has faced legal action on charges such as <disrupting public order> and <disseminating false information in cyberspace.> Both Sajjad and Mahmonir have been banned from online activities, and their social media accounts are no longer accessible. According to informed sources, Meysam Pirfalak's mental well-being has significantly deteriorated as a result of these pressures. <Following the arrest of his brother Sajjad and Pouya's tragic death, Meysam Pirfalak has experienced intense mental pressure that led to a deterioration in his mental state. Even though Sajjad has been released, Meysam continues to endure significant pressure,> said one source.
Mahmonir at the Center of Threats
According to Mahmonir's relatives, the threats from security forces began immediately after Kian's death and have since intensified. <Since the day she lost her child, this mother has never been free from the threats imposed by the security forces,> a family member said. <The threats became increasingly severe and intense when Mahmonir faced legal prosecution, and they further intensified after Pouya's death.> <They attempted to prevent Pouya's burial from becoming a significant event similar to Kian's funeral, and unfortunately, they succeeded. Through their threats, they controlled the burial of the deceased.> <Initially, Pouya's body was held hostage, and the family was not allowed to proceed with the [burial] arrangements. The Molaei-Rad family was informed that if Mahmonir openly declared that Kian was not killed by the police, they would release Pouya's body.> According to this source, the threats have to some extent diminished because Sajjad Pirfalak was released on a hefty bail. However, security forces continue to exert pressure on Mahmonir through various means. Her relatives emphasized that Izeh residents stand firmly with the Pirfalek and Molaei-Rad families and refuse to abandon them. <The people of Izeh are courageous and resilient, refusing to yield to oppression,> a relative said. <They have made a solemn commitment to stand by the family until the day a statue of Kian is erected in the city's main square.> >>
