Dervishes Are on Hunger Strike in Islamic Republic Prisons !

According to a report by " " website :

Imprisoned Gonabadi Dervishes in Ward 350 of Evin prison, Ali Reza Roushan and Mostafa Abdi have gone on hunger strike since the first day of Farvardin 1392(March 21 2013).
According to Majzooban Noor, Ali Reza Roushan and Mostafa Abdi, Dervish rights activists and the staff of Majzooban Noor website, have lunched a hunger strike to protest the illegal imprisonment of seven Gonabadi dervishes's lawyers and Majzooban Noor website managers in solitary confinement of Evin prison in the past 72 days and lack of care for their critical health conditions and also in support of their brothers in faith, jailed Gonabadi Dervishes in Shiraz's Adel Abad prison, Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri, who after 64 days of hunger strike on liquid diet, have started a dry hunger strike with the same demands since Thursday March 21. (Moradi and Nouri are on 69th day of their hunger strike now.)

Today, 5th Farvardin, 1392 ( March 25, 2013) in the morning, Messrs. Roushan and Abdi during a visit with their families, by expressing concern about conditions of jailed Dervishes have stated: "Though we would beg them to end their hunger strike, we seek also their path and have decided to embark on an indefinite hunger strike as a sacrificial mark of protest against violation of law by Iranian Judicial authorities.
It is notable that the worried families of Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri, by expressing grave concern about deplorable conditions of them said that, Dervishes are on the verge of death now! and the Iranian authorities, specifically Judge Salavati and Intelligence Ministry will be responsible for any risks to their lives as a result of their ongoing hunger strike because the Iranian Judiciary officials have not yet reached to their simple demands after 69 days.
It should be reminded that, seven Gonabadi dervishes's lawyers and Majzooban Noor's managers (Messrs. Hamid Reza Moradi Sarvestani, Amir Eslami, Mostafa Daneshjou, Farshid Yadollahi, Afshin Karampour, Omid Behroozi and Reza Entesari) because of refusing to participate in court due to illegal process hearing, under order from judge Salavati, have been transferred to solitary confinement of Ward 209 Evin prison from more than 70 days ago. It is regrettable that, Gonabadi dervishes were mistreated, beaten and insulted at the time of transfer and interrogation. Unfortunately physical condition of two Dervishes has been reported deteriorated.
