Raymond Davis Incident

“We do not accept any immunity to a murderer even if the American is a diplomat. If the Vienna Convention gives immunity to diplomats, it also envisages some laws for them to follow.” – File Photo

SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED ONCE IN 1964

·


Below is a piece sent by Zjeddy of the Treasure Chest blog. Its an excerpt from Imam Khomeini’s Speech that he delivered after one such similar incident (referring to Raymond Davis Incident) took place in Iran – 1964. After Imam’s speech, which incited a lot of people, he was sent in exile in November the same year. I am sure you will be able to relate it with what has happened in Lahore…..

KHOMEINI’S SPEECH EXCERPTS

“The Granting of Capitaluatory Rights to the USA , 27 October, 1964

I cannot express the sorrow I feel in my heart. Iran no longer has any festival to celebrate; they have turned our festival into mourning…They have sold us, they have sold our independence; but still they light up the city and dance The dignity of the Iranian Army has been trampled underfoot! A law has been put before the Majlis according to which we are to accede to the Vienna Convention, and a provision has been added to it that all American military advisers, together with their families, technical, and administrative officials, and servants,   in short, anyone in any way connected to them ” are to enjoy legal immunity with respect to any crime they may commit in Iran. If some American’s servant, some American cook, assassinates your marja in the middle of the bazaar, or runs over him, the Iranian police do not have the right to apprehend him! Iranian courts do not have the right to judge him! The dossier must be sent to America, so that our master there can decide what is to be done    They have reduced the Iranian people to a level lower than that of the American dog. If someone runs over a dog belonging to an American, he will be persecuted. But if an American cook runs over the Shah, the head of the state, no one will have the right to interfere with him. Why? Because they wanted a loan and Americans demanded this in return.
