- Secretary-General of Iran's Habilian Association - a human rights group formed by the families of 17,000 terror victims in Iran - Seyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad in a letter on Sunday censured the UN Special Reporter for Human Rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, for his biased and unreal report.
"I should announce that your report on the human rights situation in Iran is an incomplete report that has merely paid attention to specific aspects with specific goals," the letter said on Sunday.
Hasheminejad described the report as politically-tainted and written under the pressure of the western countries, and said, "The human rights desired by the West are cruel and filled with discriminations."
UN Special Reporter for Human Rights in Iran Ahmed Shaheed in November presented his report to the UN Human Rights Council based on the allegations made by the western powers and the Islamic Republic opposition parties in exile and without even paying a single visit to the country.
Head of Iran's Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani had also earlier blasted Ahmed Shaheed for his hasty and biased report on Iran.
Larijani said accusations against the Islamic Republic regarding human rights violation are part of the West's political enmity against Iran.
He also pointed out that the western states are seeking to show that Iran's model was not successful, while Iran's diplomacy serves as a full-fledged model for the Islamic world.
Iran has turned into the most influential and advanced country in the world and the region thanks to its scientific achievements, he noted, adding that the Islamic Republic is the first country in the Middle East which produces energy using an atomic reactors.
Stating that the West is feeling uneasy about Iran's achievements, he added that the West is also worried about the fact that Muslims across the world will take Iran as a model.
"The West will not be able to isolate Iran by raising the issues such as human rights," he said.
"Shaheed's report was nothing but repeated accusations by terrorists against Iran," Larijani said.
