Preposterous Iran: it does seem like someone has put a curse on the country in the forms of hujjatu l-Islām (proof of Islam) and ayatollah (sign of Allah).
The Iranian theocracy politicised the earthquake in Kermanshah. Homes, small businesses and rural sheds were destroyed in one of the poorest of provinces.
Kermanshah earthquake: Abshouran is emblematic of life in the province. The people’s generosity defy the cover-up of the disaster and the theocracy’s venom.
