Salman Rushdie, Richard Dawkins, Maryam Namazie, Taslima Nasrin und Mina Ahadi fordern das Europaparlament dazu auf, eine Delegation nach Aserbaidschan zu schicken, um über den Mord an Rafik Tagi aufzuklären

Mina Ahadi hat am Dienstag den 6. Dezember 2011 das Europäische Parlament besucht und einen gemeinsamen Brief von Salman Rushdie, Richard Dawkins, Taslima Nasrin, Maryam Namazie u. a. an Jerzi Buzek, den Präsidenten des Europaparlaments, überreicht.

Mina Ahadi hat auch Marton Kovacs, den parlamentarischen Mitarbeiter von Alexander Alvaro (FDP) besucht und über Rafik Tagi sowie Houtan Kian, den Rechtsanwalt von Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani gesprochen.

Der gemeinsame Brief von mehreren Persönlichkeiten, ins Deutsche übersetzt:

Rafik Tagi, der bekannte Schriftsteller, der Kritiker von Islamismus, Islam, Islamischem Regime des Irans sowie der Regierung Aserbaidschans, erlitt vielfache Verwundungen durch Messerstiche, als er sich am 19. November gerade auf seinem Nachhauseweg befand.

Tagi schien dann auf dem Weg der Genesung zu sein und konnte sogar ein Interview geben, in dem er sagte, dass der Angriff vielleicht durch das Regime des Iran organisiert worden war. Jedoch verschlechterte sich Rafik Tagis Gesundheitszustand bald und er starb. Manch einer ist jetzt besorgt, dass das Krankenhaus sich vielleicht nicht ausreichend um die Sicherheit gekümmert hat und dass er vergiftet worden sein könnte.

Die Islamische Republik Iran hat verneint, irgendeine Rolle bei diesem Mord gespielt zu haben, obwohl im Jahre 2006 Ayatollah Lankarani eine Todesfatwa gegen Tagi erlassen hatte. Lankaranis Sohn (dessen Vater inzwischen gestorben war) begrüßte den Mord an Tagi; die Presse des iranischen Islamischen Regimes zeigte sich hocherfreut und schrieb „Der Salman Rushdie von Aserbaidschan ist tot!“

Wir, die unterzeichnenden Schriftsteller und Aktivisten, rufen die Europäische Union dazu auf, die Ermordung zu verurteilen und eine Kommission einzurichten, die den Mordfall Tagi untersucht. Die Wahrheit um seine Ermordung muss ans Licht kommen.

Das englische Original lautet:

Rafiq Tagi, the prominent writer and critic of Islamism, Islam, the Islamic regime of Iran and the Azerbaijani government received multiple stab wounds on his way home on 19 November.

He seemed to be recuperating, even doing an interview where he said the attack may have been organised by the regime in Iran. However, he took a turn for the worse and died. Some are concerned that security at the hospital was lax and that he could have been poisoned.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has denied any role in his murder even though in 2006 Ayatollah Lankarani issued a death fatwa against him. Ayatollah Lankarani’s son (whose father has since died) saluted Tagi’s murder; the Islamic regime of Iran’s paper gleefully wrote ‘Azerbaijan’s Salman Rushdie is dead.’

We, the undersigned writers and campaigners, call on the EU to condemn the killing and send a mission to investigate Rafiq Taqi’s death. The truth surrounding his murder must come to light.

    Der Islam- und Iran-kritische Tagi löste erstmals im Jahr 2006 Ärger unter gläubigen Muslimen aus, als er einen deutlich formulierten Artikel in der aserbaidschanischen Wochenzeitschrift Sanat veröffentlichte. Darin behauptete Tagi, Islam und Demokratie seien unvereinbar. Zudem enthielt der Text als kritisch empfundene Verweise auf den Propheten Muhammad. Sozusagen als Antwort auf den Artikel gaben mehrere iranische Ayatollahs Fatwas heraus, in denen Tagi zum Tode verurteilt wurde. Im Jahr 2007 dann verbrachten Tagi und der Sanat-Chefredakteur Samir Sadagatoglu acht Monate in einem Gefängnis des Ministeriums für Nationale Sicherheit. Ihnen wurde Anstiftung zu religiösem Hass durch die Beleidigung des Propheten zur Last gelegt.

    Bakus Beziehungen zum Iran waren in den letzten Monaten sehr angespannt. Auf der Website des inzwischen verstorbenen iranischen Ayatollah Fazil Lankarani, der eine der Fatwas gegen Tagi ausstellte, dankte sein Sohn Ayatollah Haci Scheich Muhammad Cavad Lankarani Gott für »die rächende Hand, die sich unter den Muslimen Aserbaidschans fand und die das böse Individuum, das islamische Heiligtümer und Allahs Boten beleidigte, zur Hölle schickte«. Vertreter der iranischen Botschaft in Baku leugneten jegliche Verbindung mit dem Angriff.

    European Parliament resolution on Azerbaijan, notably the case of Rafig Tagi

    C. whereas Rafiq Tagi had reportedly been receiving death threats in the weeks prior to the attack, believed to be in retaliation for an article amongst others published on Radio Azadlyq’s (Liberty) website on 10 November 2011, in which he criticised the current Iranian government (S§D, EPP, ALDE, Greens, ECR),

    D. whereas Rafig Tagi served a prison sentence following his conviction in May 2007 on charges of inciting religious hatred, based on an article he had written in the newspaper Sanat, in which he argued that Islamic values were preventing Azerbaijan’s integration into European structures and stunting its democratic progress (S§D, ALDE, Greens);

    E. whereas a leading Iranian cleric, Grand Ayatollah Fazel Lankarani issued the fatwa calling for Rafiq Tagi to be killed after Rafiq Tagi published the said article; whereas the fatwa also called for Samir Sadagatoglu, the editor of the Sanat newspaper, to be killed (S§D, EPP; ALDE, Greens, ECR)

    F. whereas the Iranian authorities never condemned this fatwa, which appear to be an incitement to murder, nor have they clarified that anyone suspected of inciting, planning, carrying out or aiding attacks on Rafiq Tagi or Samir Sadaqatoglu should be brought to justice (S§D, EPP; ALDE, Greens, ECR) ;

    G. whereas the UN Human Rights Committee, which oversees the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) to which Iran is a state party, recently expressed concern about the Article 226 of the Iranian Penal Code, which says that „committing murder will result in retaliation provided the murdered person did not deserve to die in accordance with Islamic law“; whereas fatwas are used to justify that an individual „deserves to die“ (S§D, EPP, ALDE, Greens);

    H. whereas the Azerbaijani authorities never clearly condemned the fatwa and the public death threats Rafig Tagi received during his trial on the „defamation of religion“ in 2007; whereas even his death has only had minimal coverage on state controlled TV and the authorities have yet to publicly condemn his murder (S§D, ALDE, Greens);

    European Parliament adopts resolution criticizing Azerbaijan
    December 16, 2011

    The European Parliament adopted a resolution on Thursday strongly condemning murder of Rafig Tagi in Azerbaijan and expresses its concern over the safety of Samir Sadagatoglu.

    “MEPs strongly condemn the murder of Rafig Tagi, a prominent Azerbaijani writer and journalist, and express their concern over the safety of Samir Sadagatoglu, the editor of the Sanat newspaper. They welcome the move by the Azerbaijani Government to set up a special working group to investigate the murder of Rafiq Tagi and call on the Azerbaijan authorities to ensure that the investigation is thorough and effective, and that perpetrators are prosecuted and brought to justice in a trial which meets international fair trial standards. At the same time, Azerbaijani authorities must to do their utmost to protect the life and safety of Samir Sadagatoglu.

    MEPs finally insist that threats and incitement to violence against individuals expressing views deemed ‘offensive’ by some adherents of religions and beliefs systems are “totally unacceptable,” that those responsible for such threats and incitement must be prosecuted, and that the freedom of expression and safety of the threatened individuals must be fully guaranteed,” the resolution reads.

    Secularism and sharia law
    National Secular Society in August 2010

    (…) There is a wide variety of outcomes possible under sharia for the same transgression, given there are several different schools of sharia law, which in any case is not codified. Furthermore, modernists, traditionalists and fundamentalists hold different views of sharia, which is also practised differently in different countries and cultures. It is therefore a long way from The principle of “one law for all”, particularly in the way women are treated less favourably than men, and is not influenced in any way by modern concept of Human Rights. …

    Democratically-determined and human rights compliant national and community law should always override sharia (or any other religious) “law”. …

    a) Women, especially, are corralled into sharia courts or councils in the UK, in particular where they frequently receive less fair treatment than in the civil equivalents. In a judgment, the UK House of Lords found sharia to be “arbitrary and discriminatory”. …

    The use of sharia law in family proceedings would deprive women of rights they have in civil courts. …

    Sharia councils give religious rulings (fatwas) on all aspects of Islamic law, including religious divorces. Many women believe that they are divorced (or not divorced) according to the councils’ decisions, unaware of their legal rights. …

    Examples of women’s rights being ignored:

    Domestic violence. In one study, four out of ten women attending sharia courts were party to civil injunctions against their husbands.

    The evidence of women. before the religious court is worth half that of a man.

    Unequal division of estates. between male and female children.

    Custody of children. One of the commonly used doctrines removes boys from their mother and gives them to their father at the age of 7 in the event of divorce. Girls are removed at puberty. In some cases the mother loses residence in the event of remarriage.

    Maintenance. The Nikah or marriage contract contains pre-set rules for the amount of payment on divorce. This does not reflect individual requirements or circumstances.

    Eurovision … und Ayatollah Sobhani (demnächst mehr zu Jafar Sobhani beim Blog Sägefisch)

    Teheran/Baku – Iran hat das ESC-Gastgeberland Aserbaidschan beschuldigt, den Islam zu beleidigen. Die Regierung in Teheran bestellte deswegen den Botschafter des Nachbarlandes ein und zog seinen eigenen Gesandten in Baku zu Beratungen ab.

    Dies berichtet die amtliche Nachrichtenagentur Irna. Der Botschafter Bakus in Teheran habe ein offizielles Protestschreiben erhalten, so Irna weiter. Am 26. Mai steigt in Baku der 57. Eurovision Song Contest(ESC), rund 120 Millionen TV-Zuschauer werden allein in Europa erwartet.

    Iranische Geistliche haben Aserbaidschan wegen seiner Ausrichtung des diesjährigen ESC scharf kritisiert. Sie warfen der Regierung in Baku außerdem vor, Kundgebungen von Homosexuellen erlaubt zu haben, die in Iran verboten sind. Tatsächlich fand in Baku noch nie eine Schwulenparade statt.

    Beide Länder haben schon länger ein angespanntes Verhältnis. Das ölreiche Aserbaidschan hat seine Kontakte zu den USA in letzter Zeit weiter vertieft – was in Teheran für wenig Begeisterung gesorgt hat.

    Iran withdraws ambassador from Baku in row over Eurovision Song Contest

    Clerics in Iran accuse Azerbaijan of undermining Islamic values and of staging a ‚gay parade‘ in Baku …

    Ayatollah Sobhani, a senior Iranian cleric, issued a statement urging Muslims in the region to protest at what he described as anti-Islamic behaviour by Azerbaijan’s government.

    „We heard that the government of Azerbaijan is hosting the international Eurovision Song Contest and that during this contest there will also be a gay parade,“ the semi-official Fars news agency quoted the cleric as saying.

    Iran was angered by subsequent anti-Iranian protests in the Azerbaijan capital Baku, where demonstrators carried pictures of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and banners that read „Azerbaijan does not need clerics-homosexuals!“

    The latest spat between the countries that share a religion but have sharply different political systems is part of wider diplomatic tensions. Iran has accused Azerbaijan of assisting Israel in what it says was the Jewish state’s assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists.

    Iranian cleric Ayatollah Sobhani condemned the event, saying it included a “gay parade” and went against the teachings of Islam.
