Shaykh Abdol-Hamid, prominent leader of Iranian Sunnis and Imam of Makki Mosque Zahidan, who attended the Unity conference was supposed to lead Friday prayer in Pounak neighbourhood in Tehran, but the security forces prevented him and the Sunnis from performing Juma'ah prayers.

Security forces prevent Sunni Friday congregational prayers from being held in Pounak, Tehran

Posted on January 9, 2015

Iranian security forces barred Sunni worshipers from entering a Sunni prayer site in Tehran on Friday 9 January 2015, preventing them from holding congregational Friday prayers.

Security forces were deployed Friday morning in the Pounak neighborhood of Tehran, where they blocked roads leading to the Sunni prayer site and prevented worshipers from entering the building.

Trustees of the prayer site were also contacted on Thursday night by members of the security forces, who told them that ‘they [Sunnis] had no right’ to hold congregational Friday prayers this week.

The carefully-planned operation appears to have been deliberately scheduled to take place on the final day of the so called Shia-Sunni ‘unity-week’, which began this year on Monday 5 January.

The Iranian regime claims the ‘unity-week’ is evidence that they are not hostile to Sunni Muslims and claims that it proves they regard Sunni Muslims as equal to the Shia.

The actions of the authorities today, however, sent a clear message to the Sunnis of Tehran that the ‘unity-week’ is nothing more than an empty slogan.

Despite Sunnis being the largest religious minority in the Shia majority Iran, with records indicating that there are more than a million Sunnis living in Tehran alone, the Iranian government has prevented a Sunni mosque from being built in Tehran.

The Sunni citizens of Tehran are instead forced to use rented rooms and spaces as ‘namaz khaneh’ (prayer rooms) to hold obligatory Sunni congregational prayers, with restrictions forcing some to organize Sunni prayers in their own homes and private spaces.

These prayer sites regularly come under attack from the authorities preventing Sunni Muslims from using them, causing Human Rights Watch (HRW) to issue a statement urging Iran to ‘lift restrictions on Sunni worship’.

Salaam dear audience/viewers.

News is news at the end of the day. And one should see it as news. What has been put forward as news one needs to consider this,

How accurate is it???
It might be fabricated,
It could be exagurated,
It could be true, but how much???
It could be false,

There are a  lot of groups/parties who oppose the government in different ways and methods. Politics plays a large role in every country, be it opposition or government.

Now if certain groups or parties use friday prayers for political purpose and these goups or parties are inflienced and funded by foreign powers, just to cause unrest with in that coutry and to challenge the government through terrorst activity and means then, the government has a right to take appropriate action, to protect and defend the people and country.

If it was an article about Saudi banning Shia from attending a Latmiyyah your comment would have been 180 Degrees opposite.

Personally, I usually don't post stuff like this in the first place as I think it's useless, but I'm still pretty sure you would have given an opposite view if it were about Saudi.

I used to think like you Hani, that news like this is useless, but then I realise how many times shia have been using current affairs news as propaganda for their benefit which have been fooling MANY sunnis. Since then, I dont see this kind of news useless, but important part of this work to reveal the part of shia religion, Taqiyah

It may have its use bro, but the true benefit and what is badly needed are people who are educated about Tashayyu` and who study Tareekh, Firaq and Hadith in order to truly expose them, a man made Madhab detached from the divine.

Youre talking about the ideal situation bro. Shia has been using this type of news added with lies and it work like charm. 99,9% sunni has no idea that sunni is oppressed there.

If shia can use lies to fool us, imagine what real news can do to average sunni. I used to think current affairs news are wasting times too, not anymore though

Example: most sunnis dont know how bad shia regime in syria is until the political opposition started & news trickled out from there. Even Hamas leader who many times lick Khamenei butt changed its stance which in turn changed he view about Iran & Hizbullshit. So current affairs situation should not be ignored.

This just goes to show that WFers are hypocrites. They are leading the campaign for Shia-Sunni unity but then do stuff like this. Why can't we just have a regular country where everyone lives in peace (not "unity", just peace) and can pray wherever and whenever they want?

Iran is beginning to look more and more like Saudi everyday ;)

Curse on them both.

Ignore the desperate fellow "Ameen". The news has been confirmed on the OFFICAL website of the Sunni community of Tehran:

http://forum.twelvershia.net/general-sunni-vs-shia/iran-police-prevent-sunni-friday-prayer-in-tehran-during-'unity-week'/?action=post;last_msg=2149

The likes of "Ameen" are desperately trying to control the damage that his religion and evil Iranian regime are facing today. A fruitless attempt in the age of social media and internet, for surely the crimes of the Pharao Khomeini, Khamenei, the Iranian regime and the Rafidah are getting exposed on a daily basis. H

Gentlemen, have you been to Iran??? Have you lived in Iran??? Have you socialised with the Iranians?? Have you any links and connections with Iranians?? Have you met Ayatullah Khomeini??? Have you met his older brother??? Have you met and socialised with Ayatullah Janati, Mashkini or may be Sana'ee??? Do you know how they operate and what they believe in??? My friends do all this then come back to me. The reason why i don't believe you is that when you just don't look at your link but have travelled, lived, socialised, get to know and explored then, it's a different story. What ever you say, others might think and ponder over it but for me and others like me, it's a different story. You're anti Shia to begin with, so what can one expect from you about Iran.

The news is confirmed, by whom?? Aahh, the Sunni community of Iran. Well what do you expect??? They have their agenda and what division. They speak terribly and badly about the state. They're involved in terrorist activities, not just in Iran but all over the world. They're funded and fueled by foreign powers to cause unrest and chaos in Iran. The government has a right to act. You want to pray then by all means pray. But if you're going to use Jummah and places of worship for political purposes and treason then you will be dealt with.

@Ameen, the most desperate Rafidi on earth

I am Iranian and I've seen more of Iran than you can ever dream of in one of your wet Rafidi dreams.
Anyway guys, check this out and be even more shocked at the nifaq of these Mushrikeen:

By Allah they don't believe in God these God-less oppressors, they misuse everything, from A like Ahl Al-Bayt to Z like the zeal of the Muslims for unity.

Terrorist activities? The Sunnis of Iran? The absolute majority of Sunnis of Iran are peaceful, especially the Sunnis of Tehran. And what terrorist activities around the world?!

Agenda? You mad man, so Christian Evangelists have no agenda? Yet they run over 40 Churches in Tehran, so do the JEWS! Iranian Sunnis of Tehran have caused no trouble to nobody. And what is this again:

Let me answer your question first and then I will comment on your point. But I will give you all a more detailed response during my next days off work.

Have I been to Iran??? Yes I have. I have lived in Iran, I have travelled in Iran, I have explored and experiened Iran and Iranians, I have got to know and socialised with certain individuals in Iran, including Hujjatul Islam Wal Muslimeens and Ayatullahs. I speak from experience not assumptions. To be continued!
