Default Islamic Republic of Iran executes man for interpreting story in the Quran as symbolic

http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...en-amir-aslani

Quote:
A 37-year-old man has been executed in Iran after being found guilty of heresy and insulting prophet Jonah, according to human rights activists.

Mohsen Amir-Aslani was arrested nine years ago for his activities which the authorities deemed were heretical. He was engaged in psychotherapy but also led sessions reading and reciting the Qur’an and providing his own interpretations of the Islamic holy book, his family said.

Amir-Aslani was hanged last week for making “innovations in the religion” and “spreading corruption on earth”, but human rights activists said he was a prisoner of conscience who was put to death because of his religious beliefs. He had interpreted Jonah’s story in the Qur’an as a symbolic tale.

You know the story of Jonah, the one where he gets swallowed by a whale/big fish.

Interrupting that story as non-literal can get you executed in Iran.
The current government of Iran is at best a lateral move from the shah.

This has nothing to do with religion. Stop being racist OP.

True. We should fund more Sad-damn Husseins and Osama Bin Ladens to take Iran on.

Exactly.
Fund more crazy dictators with billions of dollars so they can start a war against Iran for no reason.

Quran is a direct word of God, as revealed by Allah to Mohammed.

There is no room for interpretation of symbolism. Allah meant for his curtains to be ****ing blue.
