Mir Hossein Mousavi Denounces Labeling Citizens as Insiders versus Outsiders

Ya Hossein.... Mir HosseinIf an individual loses faith in the regime yet acts within the framework of the law, we have no right to treat him as though he has been deprived of his rights as a citizen. I don’t believe in setting [arbitrary] preconditions for myself nor am I quick to delineate, labeling individuals as pro or anti regime, or categorizing citizens as insiders versus outsiders.

Mir Hossein Mousavi April 6th, 2009

ممکن است کسی اعتقادش را به نظام از دست داده باشد اما در چهارچوب قانون عمل کند ما حق نداریم مثل کسی که از مدار شهروندی خارج شده با او مواجه شویم. من برای خودم قید درست نمی کنم و اینگونه نیست که سریع خط قرمز بکشم و افراد به غیر نظام یا خودی و غیر خودی تبدیل کنم.

میرحسین، ۱۷ فروردین ۱۳۸۸
