Ettela’at, October 3, 1981

Referring to the grouplets’ operations, Hashemi Rafsanjani, speaker of the Islamic parliament and Tehran’s acting Friday prayer leader, said in his first sermon:

“Divine law defines four sentences for them which must be carried out:

2-   Hang them,

3-   Cut off their arms and legs,

4-   Banish them…”

“Had we caught and executed 200 of them right after the revolution, they would not have multiplied so much.
