Islamic Republic TV interviewed a Quran expert who advocated for torture and death penalties for participants in Iran's protests. He suggested that protesters should not simply be killed, but should also suffer.
In the video shared by Iranian activist Masih Alinejad, he recites a verse from the Quran that, according to him, suggests mutilation, exile and public hanging of Iranian protesters.

Islamic republic’s tv is officially inciting authorities using Quaran to issue torture (cutting off the opposing limb) n death penalty against the ordinary people attending in recent #IranProtests. It's time for our global community to pay some attention to the situation in #Iran pic.twitter.com/Kdgyd3jv4n— مملکته (@mamlekate) November 27, 2019
Activists were enraged after seeing the video, demanding immediate international interference as the situation in Iran escalates.
Islamic republic suppressed protesters with live bullets shot to kill and is now trying to prepare the brainwashed part of the country for bloody crushing of prisoners by saying Koran calls for mutilation and public hanging of enemies of Islam. #iranprotest https://t.co/FoYLtsT2PG— Elnaz Sarbar (@elishkaa) November 28, 2019
I lived in Islamic republic of Iran for 28 years and I totally agree with you. I'm scared of Islam and it effected my life in such negative way which I'm still recovering from.— Elnaz Sarbar (@elishkaa) November 28, 2019
The sad story of Islamic Republic in human history shows once again that any religion is personal and when your personal view of religion, be it Islam, or Christianity, or Buddhism or whatever becomes a dogma, law of a state, citizens will suffer tremendously— Ksenia Tatarnik (@kseniatatarnik1) November 28, 2019
The Iranian regime is pure evil. We are praying for the people of Iran. May you courageous souls see freedom soon. May you never give up hope until that day comes. God be with you.— Dony Jay (@DonyJayBooks) November 27, 2019

Massive protests have erupted last week in Iran in response to the soaring cost of living and a dramatic increase in fuel prices.
Following Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal, thousands marched toward the gates of parliament in one of the largest protests Iran has witnessed in years. Many clashed with the police and protesters were dispersed by security forces using tear gas.
The regime was so scared of losing control, that they closed down schools in Tehran during #IranProtests.— Masih Alinejad 🏳️ (@AlinejadMasih) November 23, 2019
They blamed these closures on the "snow".
But, they actually used school properties for arresting protesters, as this video shows.

According to Amnesty International, at least 143 protesters were killed since the protests erupted on 15 November.
The human rights group says the deaths resulted almost entirely from the intentional use of firearms by security forces, though one man was reported to have died after inhaling tear gas and another after being beaten. Amnesty believes the death toll is significantly higher, and activists say that it exceeds 200.
Digital experts say nothing to date equals Iran’s internet shutdown in logistical complexity. Seems that #Iranian authorities don’t want us to see how they are shooting unarmed protesters from rooftops of government buildings like this one. pic.twitter.com/ADWKkDrLuz— Amnesty International (@amnesty) November 22, 2019
