(Mohabat News) – The Islamic regime’s Intelligence Service has addressed a secret letter to the Iranian Prisons Organization instructing them to prevent Christian prisoners from celebrating Easter.

Maf News reports that an anonymous source indicated that a letter has been sent out to the Prisons Organization ordering them to “cooperate with intelligence officers in preventing Christian prisoners from celebrating Easter”. The letter mentions Easter as a foreign tradition!

Many Christians are in Iranian prisons for their faith and many have reluctantly left the country due to intense pressure by the Islamic government of Iran.

In a similar story, Mohabat News reported earlier that Rajaei-Shahr prison organized a Christmas/New Year celebration for prisoners on December 30 and banned a number of Christian prisoners serving their sentence there from attending the celebration.

The Islamic regime of Iran claims that it respects the rights of religious minorities as well as their privacy. However, this claim has been proved wrong over and over again as the Islamic regime continues to oppress religious minorities, including Christians.

The prison authorities’ treatment of Christians in preventing them from celebrating the resurrection of their Lord, is an indicator of the Iranian regime’s overall policy toward Christians and other religious minorities.

    Unfortunartely or as the case may be, born again Christians can celebrate The Living God anywhere, anytime as Christ lives in us. We can acknowledge His death and resurrection every day, as we live under grace. Unlike other faiths, we do not have to travel for days to meet at a particular location to worship Him, we are not religious, we can take communion in many forms….The Lord God reigns in us and He is with us. Hallelujah!

    Father God; In the name of Jesus I ask for your grace and mercy to shine on the Iranian Regime’s Intelligence Services and the heads of the Prisons Organization. Through a whisper to their hearts, or visions and dreams, I ask you to give them the truth that you were crucified, you were resurrected again, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against this body of Christians of which you are the head. I know someone will see this and agree in prayer. They don’t even have to type it out.
