Iran: Convert to Christianity Arrested by Islamic Republic Officials in Robat-Karim and Moved to Unknown Location, Bibles Confiscated


Romans 8:35-39, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [Shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“Plain clothes security officers arrested a Christian convert, thoroughly searched his house and transferred him into an unknown location. The interrogators of information ministry simultaneously questioned another Christian about his Christian faith.

According to the reporter of Christian News Agency, Mohabat News, Fariborz Arazm, a Christian convert who resides in the city of Robat-Karim was arrested by the Islamic republic officials.

On Monday, October 17, a group of four officers in a sudden attack raided into Fariborz house, arrested him and transferred him to an unknown location.

It was 7:30 in the morning and just before he leaves the house for work, the plain clothes officers attacked his resident without any proof of warrant.

The officers searched the house upside-down and made a mess out of it. They confiscated Fariborz’s computer’s hard disk, CDs, Pictures and a number of Bibles. The family also were threatened to remain silent and not to talk about this incident to anyone.

Fariborz Arazm, 44, is the father of two children. He has not been able to contact nor visit his family since the arrestment. This unclear situation has caused stress and anxiety for his family and friends.

According to this report, there is no information regarding Fariborz’s present location and his family is suffering from this uncertainty. They are also seriously concerned about his health. They have also tried to find out the reason of his arrest and charges but no information has been given to them until now. However, apparently the arrestment is related to his Christian faith.” Read more.

Iran: The Spread of the Gospel Among Iranian Youth and Families Sparks Islamic Authorities to Increase Suppression of Christianity – “The rapid growth of the Christian faith in Iran seems to have caused significant concern and even fear in the hearts of the leadership of the Islamic regime which has sparked increased suppression of Christians especially in the last year. After the Supreme Leader Ali Khameniei’s speech regarding the need to oppose and silence the home-based churches, a brutal and inhumane crackdown along with numerous arrests of Christians inside Iran has been witnessed. It is shameful to see the authorities show complete disregard for the sacred Scriptures of more than two billion Christians around the world, while burning those scriptures with disrespect.” Read more.

Islamic Militants Calling Themselves ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam’ Threaten to Hunt Down and Execute Christians Who Flee Iran – “Islamic militants with suspected ties to Iranian security forces have been terrorizing evangelical Christians with threats to ‘repent’ or die, it was reported Sunday. Christian Solidarity Worldwide has reported that 11 Iranian Christians who fled Iran in the wake of a government campaign against Christianity have received threats via email to ‘repent’ or face extrajudicial execution, from a group identifying itself as the ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam.’ The threatening emails that were sent to each individual on Sept. 14 aspired to extend the arm of Iranian Islamic militancy beyond the borders of Iran by implying that, although the recipients have left Iran, they have not escaped the ‘acute eyes of the unknown soldiers.’” Read more.
