I have not heard your voice for a long time, and I’m getting sadder every day more than day before, but I think with myself that if one day I get a chance to hear you, how can I listen to your voice. I’m afraid of hearing your voice and crying. These days they took away your thirty-four-year life friend and partner and endless grief and sorrow is taking over you, I have a request, I pray not as your child, but as Comrade Kak Iqbal, who his body has been targeted with bullets.
Mom Giyan (Dayeh Giyan)!
Surely, if today, instead of bullets in my father’s body, there was a sign of noose around my neck, he was speaking to you instead of me and not for a moment he would allow himself to think of revenge. Because he was living with the dream of the world without execution and a world full of peace and justice. You know him better than anyone and familiar with his feelings, his laughter and his desires with all your soul and strength. You know better than anyone that even the slightest thought to revenge is behind the dream of father.
Mom Giyan (Dayeh Giyan)!
My dear and heart acing mother, in these ten years of my captivity, whoever knows us, knows that all this suffering and years of living with my execution Rope was for the revenge of my father. I believe that the father, who was in a tense siege of the ten-year captivity of me and became a victim of this tragedy, has never thought of revenge. He did not think of revenge because he did believe the dream of beautiful world will be possible with execution and revenge. Now that Father is not physically here with us, for his sake and his great aspirations, as in the past, stay strong and protect my sister as a strong mountain and do not let the seed of revenge plant in her soul. And this time the Father must be born in my sister ‘Dideh”. This birth without your teachings will never happen.
