Headlight Protest

Email and listener voice mail to RFE/RL's Radio Farda from Iran today:

People are leaving the headlights of their cars on. The denial of permission of any sort of gathering or demonstration and the suppression of peaceful demonstrations have led the people into discovering new methods of protests. According to some reports, people have decided to keep the headlights of their cars on between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Monday afternoon, as a sign of protest as well as a tribute to Saturday's martyrs.

I would really appreciate it if you could deliver my message to Khamenei or Ahmadinejad. I have a question, and want to know that if these are the ones who claim to be the fellowship of the Prophet's Islam, have they ever even bothered to recite the holy Koran? The Koran says that lying is among the biggest of sins, or lying is the gateway to evil. I believe they either do not read the Koran or they are reluctant to follow its guidelines. They have questioned the truth. Such big sins and such big mistakes, so many youth killings!!!
