Iranian Intelligence Forces Arrest Mawlana Kohi Again

Mawlana Fazl-ur-Rahman Kohi, a prominent Sunni scholar of Iranian Balochistan, was arrested again along with six of his comrades on the way of Zahedan to Sarbaz on Sunday, October 22.
After a meeting with Shaikh Abdol-Hamid at Darululoom Zahedan, Mawlana Kohi was about to return to his hometown when the intelligence forces arrested him at a security checkpoint near Zahedan, the capital city of Sistan-Balochistan.
The Special Clergy Court of Mashhad confirmed the news and accused him of breaking unity. His companions were released after a few hours.
Mawlana Fazl-ur-Rahman, the Friday prayer leader of Pashamag\Sarbaz and head of Anwar-ul-Haramain seminary, is a well-known who has been famous for his criticism about some state policies.
About three years ago, the Mashhad Special Court for clerics sentenced Mawlana Fazl-ur-Rahman to six years and four months in prison. After spending a third of his sentence, he was supposed to be released from prison, but he was released a year later on Sep. 25, 2023.
Last week, Mawlana Kohi was banned from entering Zahedan when he wanted to meet Shaikh Abdol-Hamid and show his solidarity with him.
It should be said that on Friday, October 20, the security forces attacked Zahedan’s Friday worshipers, arrested dozens of people, harassed the students and teachers of Darululoom Zahedan, and searched their homes. Shaikh Kohi strongly condemned this action of security forces in a statement that probably led to his arrest.
