The murderous regime of Iran killed another Ahwazi activist named Hatam Maramazi. Hatam was only 20 years old, young Ahwazi from city of Khafajiya.

Hatam was abducted by the Iranian intelligence services from his family’s house last year even though the Iranian intelligence services aren’t admitting to that action. Iranian regime did not advice Hatam’s family about where Hatam is.

During the period of detention, the authorities practiced the most brutal torture against Hatam until he died. The authorities informed Hatam’s family that they would bury his body in an unknown location and warned them not to hold a funeral.

Hatam was very fine young Ahwazi cultural activists. He was arrested twice on charges of anti-government actions for his cultural activities.

There are many other similar cases, just in March Iranian Intelligence Agency murdered an Ahwazi prisoner Ali Sawari under brutal torture.

Bear in mind that It is normal in Ahwaz to get arrested for;

  1. Wearing Arabic traditional clothing
  2. Online activism
  3. Political/Human Rights/Cultural activities
  4. Teaching in native Arabic language

It is noteworthy that the authorities of the Iranian regime assassinated hundreds of Ahwazi prisoners in its dark prisons, despite repeated appeals to activists and organizations from international organizations to intervene to prevent the crimes of the occupation state.


The situation is always being like that where Ahwazi Arab are counted as second citizen in their own land, but not only that, because of Iranian beliefs of their race “Aryan race” they see themselves superior to other races in Iran and around the world.

Take a look The inhumane and racist attitude of Iranian intelligence service with detained Ahwazi Arab


We, Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights are calling on all human rights organizations, including Amnesty International and the European Parliament to address the situation of Ahwazi Arabs prisoners and put an end to torturing human rights and political prisoners and stop human rights violations towards Ahwazis and other non-Persian nations, human rights and political prisoners.
