Roshani’s co-workers assured the organization that they receive low salaries that do not meet their living needs for one week.
The Ahwazi Organization for the Defence of Human Rights affirms that suicides are a repeated horrific phenomena in the Ahwazi lands under the fascist Iranian regime are the result of economic and social reality and the high rates of poverty and unemployment.
The organization notes that the escalation of the suicide disaster in Ahwaz takes on broader dimensions every day as it extends to whole families and age groups to turn into a humanitarian disaster.
The Ahwazi Organization attributes the increase in suicides in Ahwaz to the continuous pressure resulting from the Iranian regime and its criminal policies towards the Ahwazi Arab people.
From the foregoing, the Ahwazi Organization for the Defence of Human Rights calls on human rights bodies and organizations to highlight the phenomenon of suicide, which has increased in frequency not only in Ahwaz; Rather, it extended to all regions of the non-Persian peoples, and the general geography of Iran.
The organization calls on the international community to exercise its legal duties to pressure the Iranian regime to desist from its malicious practices that have caused many problems of this kind to arise in the Ahwazi community.
