Our teacher, Master M.A. Taheri the founder of Interuniversalism ideology, was tortured to death in January 2015 in Iran simply because the government believes his peaceful teachings of love and unity is against Islamic sanctities. To this date, the Iranian government hides his death by using his under pressure family and government appointed lawyers.

Master Taheri's family in Iran is under severe pressure to cooperate with the Iranian regime agents, so they have to give fabricated information to the media and human rights organizations by wrongfully claiming that Master Taheri is still alive.

First of all, we ask of you to demand of the Iranian government to show Master Taheri to the public – not a footage of him filmed long before his death or recorded interviews but the man himself. Since this is not possible, it will finally push the government to admit to Taheri’s death and revealing the truth. This way, his rights, teachings, name and reputation is protected. It will also helps his unlawful death and bloodshed get the attention it deserves and bring those responsible to justice.

Considering Master Taheri as an international figure that belongs to a wider global society, his tragic death should bring the United Nation and other human rights organization's attention to make fundamental changes to represent international figures and prisoners by passing a bill to not base legal citations on unreliable sources such as corrupt court systems, as well as pressured families and government appointed lawyers.

We request these changes to immediately take place to prevent similar tragic outcomes in the future.
