Anti- Mullahs’ Regime Protest by Bakhtiaris in Iran

February 15, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Protests against a TV series called Sarzamine Kohan(Ancient Land) erupted this week in several Iranian cities, including Dezful and Ahvaz in the oil-rich Khuzestan BgcquKtCMAABictprovince. Demonstrators say the show was insulting toBakhtiari people and the role its leaders played in Iran’s Constitutional Revolution.

In at least one dialogue of the fictional show, Bakhtyarisare said to be “at the service of English”, meaning they were traitors. Sixty members of parliament wrote a protest letter to state-run Iranian television complaining about this representation.

Bakhtiari people, who primarily live in Chahar Mahaal, Bakhtiari and parts of the Khuzestan, Lorestan and Isfahan provinces, played an important role in Iran’s history.
