Free Mohammad-Ali Taheri, Sentenced To Five Years and 74 Lashes For "Insulting Sanctities", Practicing Alternative Medicine
Petition Background (Preamble):
After four court sessions in which he defended himself, he was sentenced to five years of prison by the Tehran Public and Revolutionary Court on charges of insulting sanctities, making statements that he had no specialty in and claiming to receive [divine] inspiration and knowledge and presenting these to others.
He was also sentenced to 74 lashes for touching his patients without a medical license. (Tabnak state-run Website, Mashreq state-run daily – Feb. 13, 2012)
MOHAMMAD ALI TAHERI (Persian: محمد علی طاهری) an academic entity,[also a spiritual master for three decades, is an internationally celebrated founder of two medical therapeutic approaches: Faradarmani & Psymentology from Iran. His methodology and approach have been a source of awareness and realization to countless people seeking wisdom, i.e. Interuniversal Consciousness. He has been awarded six honorary doctorate degrees from different international institutes including University of Traditional Medicine, Republic of Armenia, International Ecoenergy Academy of Azerbaijan Republic and International Medical Forum of Russia Federation for the foundation of Complementary and Alternative Medicines of Faradarmani and Psymentology and innovative teachings in medicine. Moreover, He has been awarded gold medals and special cups by different innovation exhibitions and institutes including CGIF 2010 and INNOVA 2010 and was honored as “Officer” at Merits of Invention at Brussels Innova European Innovation award.
Mohammad Ali Taheri’s teachings and theories are monotheistic and in accordance with all holy books. Faradarmani and Psymentologhy are based on establishing a communication, connection or link to the Interuniversal Consciousness (intermediary between God and the universe, consciousness governing the universe, which is named Gabriel or the concept of Holy Spirit in Christian theology) and it is with this connection that mental, emotional and body healing takes place and all illnesses can be cured. Under this point of view, healing is just a means (and not the aim) to help mankind move in the path of Kamal (completeness). The purpose of Faradarmani is to reach practical acquaintance with Divine intelligence , practical theology, attain practical worship, recognize the inner treasure and provide a way for public salvation. Scientific proofs of these practices have boon published in several specialized editions of Medical Magazines such as Danesh Pezeshki and Tebe Kol Negar in Iran that include medical treatment reports on curable and incurable diseases such as Lupus Erythematosus, Nephrotic syndrome, Nephrolithiasis, Cholelithiasis, Heart arrhythmia, Infertility, various types of cancers, mental disorders,etc.
His history of persecution at the hands of the Islamic Republic regime includes:
4 May 2011 – to date – hunger/food strike, no news or trace of him, no permission/information provided to his lawyer, or to his family, no text, phone messages, nothing!
12 Apr 2011 – one day detention – arrested & released for no apparent reason, but threatened to stop his lessons and group meetings
18 Apr 2010 – arrested, spending 68 days in solitary confinement, bailed out until further notice.
He has been accused, detained, arrested, and jailed on numerous but baseless/irrational counts, without the right and possibility of consulting a lawyer, accessing a fair trial, defending himself publicly, calling/contacting family loved ones, whatsoever.
He is clearly a prisoner of conscience being punished for the peaceful propagation of his own beliefs, and practicing his approaches to alternative medicine both of which have won respect and recognition from peers around the world.
His continued persecution is a gross violation of international law and human rights covenants, to which Iran is a signatory state.
