Clashes Outside Boroujerdi's House

Several thousand supporters of Ayatollah Boroujerdi, the Shiite cleric who advocates non-political Islam and opposes the theocracy in Iran, clashed with government forces in Tehran last night.

See the film footage.

In one of the film footage, Commander Talaee, chief of Tehran's Law Enforcement Forces, tells the crowd that he will personally visit the dissident Ayatollah himself and asks the crowd to go home and let the neighbours have peace and quiet in the street. The crowd tell him that the neighbours are fine and a woman tells him "we will only listen to you if the state TV broadcasts your pledges."

In the last footage, another cleric tries to calm the crowd and tell them to go home but the crowd stop him from talking and force him out of the street.

BBC Persian posted a despicable report of the incident, by trying to belittle Ayatollah Boroujerdi's position and referred to the Ayatollah's supporters as club weilding thugs who have caused fear amongst the neighbours in the street.
