Shahram vs. Shahrokh or others

Dear readers, I deeply apologise for my absence. I was very busy these days with my personal and work affairs and I did not have the time to catch up with the new events.
As you probably noticed, there was a big dispute over the videos circulating around the atrocities committed by the Iranian police during the Ashoora demonstrations.
A video of a man three times overrun by a car has been shown and the victim has been identified with at least two people, Shahram Farajzade Tarani and Shahrokh Rahmani.
Ultimately it has been proven that the victim is Shahram Tarani, for example by this photo. On the photo he is wearing the same shirt as at the moment of his martyrdom.

There have been considerable errors about the identification of the young martyr on the video, for example the VOA report identified him as Shahrokh Rahmani. It is possible that other people died during that day, but from the photos and videos it is clear that the man in that concrete video shown is Shahram Farajzade Tarani.


  1. Shahram's family and friends express their gratitude and regards to you.
    Thank you so much for all your kind help.
    We really appreciate your honest hard work.

  2. Thank you, it's my humble duty. I am happy to honour his memory and the memory of all innocent people killed by the senseless violence.
