In a personal note, Atena Daemi, a human rights activist and a political prisoner at Evin Prison, conveyed condolences on Sharif Bajaur’s and other members of Green Society of Chia (Anjoman Sabz Chia) death:
For Kak Sharif Bajaur!
The year before, I heard that Sharif Bajaur, a man of honor, traveled from Marivan to Tehran on a bike, and then went to our home and visited my parents. With his glinting affection he presented a sculpture to me that he himself received for his environmental protection activities, the sculpture that no one except you deserve it. Regretting that I did not even find the opportunity to see him in order to appreciate his love and selflessness. I realized with great regret that this noble man, Sharif Bajaur, burned in a fire. I am sad with all my heart, but happy to die tall!
He died in a place and during the work that he spent all his life for, wrestling with a fire that burned his life. In this unequal battle, he and his friends were burned and burned and burned us as well.
Kak Sharif, I’m sorry that I cannot be like you and be a drop of comfort to your parents and relatives. I, same as you involved in an unequal struggle, but that did not last and this will not last either.
In prison, nothing is more unpleasant and sadder than watching the loss of friends and your loved ones, and not able to do anything except give condolences, condolences, condolences, condolences.
