      Mostafa Mahdavi is responsible for hate crime against the LGBTI+ community in his role as the Deputy of Training and Education in the Lorestan branch of the IRGC.

      The LGBTI+ community played a big role in the 2022-23 protests. Mahdavi has defamed and degraded the LGBTI+ community with derogative language.

      On 6th of February 2023, Mahdavi said: “Homosexuality being legalised in the West is a sign of the fall of morality.”

      Mahsa (Jina) Amini was killed on 16 September 2022 while being in custody of the Morality Police of the Islamic Republic. In protest of her death, a nationwide uprising broke out in Iran which is still ongoing in various forms in different cities. According to the reports of human rights organizations, the police and security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran have killed at least 537 citizens, including 68  children, during the revolutionary uprising of the Iranian people.  
      Deputy of Training and Education of Lorestan’s IRGC: “The place of a woman in the Islamic Republic is to build the nation.”
