yazdLast year a number of historical houses in the ancient city of Yazd were destructed upon the orders of the representative of Ayatollah Khamenei. The reason was to make space for new religious gathering sites. The protests of friends of historical sites got nowhere and the Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO) whose mission is to preserve historical sites kept silent. Now, we have received new news that yet another historical site that was situated behind Molla Esmail Mosque is has been destroyed. This time CHO has risen its voice but to explain why this has happened. It has announced that “It was suppose to build an office for the Leader’s Representative behind this mosque but they have destroyed a historic house by mistake. We have sent a letter to the Friday Imam so that they rebuild the house as it was before!”
