Iran sentences its footballer to death for participating in anti-hijab protest

The Iranian government is ready to crush the ongoing demonstrations in support of Mahsa Amini at any cost. To do this, the government is adopting different tactics, including giving public death sentence to the protesters. An Iranian football player involved in demonstrations in support of Mahsa Amini and against the government has been sentenced to death. He will be hanged publicly soon.

According to reports, 26 year old football player Amir Nasr-Azadani was arrested in November in connection with the murder of a police colonel and two volunteers.

Nasr-Azadani has also been accused of waging war against Allah. Nasr Ajadani last appeared on the field in 2017-2018 for the Tractor Cultural Sports Economic Club of the Persian Gulf Pro League.

A protester was hanged in Iran last week amid nationwide protests following the death of 22 year old Mahsa Amini.

The protester who has been hanged has been identified as Mohsin Shekari. This was the first case of capital punishment related to the Iran protests.

According to IranWire, the footballer’s family was threatened by security forces, who warned them not to “disclose the news of his arrest” or Nasr-Azadani would face the “most severe punishment possible.”

The family was unable to choose a lawyer and was informed of the death sentence some time in early December.
