Whilst the Tehran Times carried an article by Chandra Muzaffar glorifying the Egyptian Revolution, titled The Egyptian revolution: The triumph of human dignity, and other news in relation to events in Egypt the paper remained silent about the protests taking place in Iran.
Addressing the Egyptian people, Iranian President Mr. Ahmadinejad said: "It is your right to be free. It is your right to exercise your will and sovereignty."
After having said this to the Egyptians who live in a totalitarian state, Iran with all its so called model government is brooking no freedoms, their Members of parliament are calling for the death sentence on two opposition leaders Mir Hossein and Mehdi Karroubi who they have already placed under house arrest.
These shock-waves have hit the current Iranian regime, the Iranian people seem to be emboldened by the events in neighboring countries and seem to have taken a cue from their president, Ahmadinejad, "It is your right to be free. It is your right to exercise your will and sovereignty"
