Omid meaning hope in Persian, was not a political activist, his passion was music which was the subject of most of his posts.
He was sentenced to two and half years prison after he wrote a one off on his blog saying
'Mr. Khamenei love me as much as you love Sheikh Nasrollah's son'
Instead of celeberating the Iranian New Year Nowruz, our national day, Omid's family will now mourn the death of their son.
