  • Posted on:  Tuesday, 17 November 2015 01:00

Officials and supporters of the Iranian Resistance on Wednesday, November 18, gathered opposite the Bataclan concert call in Paris to remember the 129 people who were killed in a terrorist attack by Islamic fundamentalist terrorists in the French capital last Friday, November 13.

Top officials of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, including Ms. Sarvnaz Chitsaz, chair of the NCRI's Women's Committee, Mr. Mehdi Abrishamchi, chair of the NCRI's Peace Committee, and Ms. Dowlat Nowrouzi, the NCRI's representative in the United Kingdom, laid flowers at the site in memory of the victims of the brutal attack.

The statement issued by NCRI President-elect Mrs. Maryam Rajavi on November 13 immediately after the massacre was read out at the ceremony.

Mrs. Rajavi reiterated that fundamentalism in the name of Islam - whether under the banner of Shia and velayat-e faqih or under the banner of Sunni and Daesh – and their inhuman crimes have nothing to do with Islam, and this evil phenomenon, wherever it may be, is the enemy of peace and humanity.

Renowned Iranian musician Hamidreza Taherzadeh, a member of the NCRI, performed a violin solo in remembrance of the victims of the tragedy.

Prominent French singer and writer Sapho joined the supporters of the NCRI by giving a live performance at the memorial. Also present was French writer Olivier Steiner who welcomed the international unity among peoples against the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.
