أسد السنة – الشيخ أبو منتصر البلوشي (حفظه الله) | أهل السنة في إيران
This man is a one man army. Iranian Baluch, a warrior people, a peole that even the bloodthirsty Safavids couldn’t break (the Baluch and Kurds gave them a hell of a time and refused to convert to Rafidism/Shi’ism).
Shaykh Dr. Abdul-Rahim Mollazadeh (Athari, hailing from one of the most powerful and religious Baluch Sunni tribes of Iran, his late elder brother Abdul-Aziz – most powerful Sunni figure during the Shah and Khomeini era – purified the entire province Sistan and Baluchestan of Iran from grave worship) is well known in the Arab world as Shaykh Abu Muntasir al-Balushi. Those who watched the notorious (and often hilarious) 2002 al-Mustaqillah debates (on satellite TV channel) know. Rafidah scholars were exposed for the first time on live TV, they were completely humiliated by students of knowledge of Ahlus-Sunnah.
I myself was still Shia in 2002 and knew only little Arabic (even then I spoke it better than their Ayatullats) but watching a passionate Sunni Shaykh refuting Rafidi priests, shredding their pathetic (top Shia arguments!) arguments one by one into pieces and making them literally flee (debates were in Ramadan, every few days a Rafidis priest fled after being exposed and refuted) was too impressive to me, I couldn’t hide it nor deny my awe really. On top of that, I found out that this sharp tongued and minded Shaykh is Iranian! Anyways, I tried to forget about tha, went 2003 to Iran, became friends with an Iranian former Shia cleric and in winter 2003 I left Shi’ism after months of discussions and research.
Through paltalk (big in the late nineties and 2000s) I became friends with Shaykh Abu Muntasir al-Balushi. A number of Iranian Sunni paltalk rooms were active back the, one of them was his. Since 2004 we are close friends, more than that, he’s like family to me. He taught me to even disagree with him if I deem it right and to stay away from all sorts of Batiniyyah whether in the name of Sunnism (Batini Tasawwuf) or Shi’ism (Batini Rafidism). A man with flaws, like all of us, but I’ve never seen Ghuluww from him, even politically he’s always mature and balanced and a well-wisher for all Muslims, including Shi’ites whom he considers (generally speaking) as Muslims who are the biggest victims of Shi’ism and the Shia clergy.
I’ve seen nothing but sincerity from this man, his life is Da’wah. Shaykh Bin Baz (th) was an actual close friend to him with whom he even lived for a while. Shaykh Abu Muntasir told me he learnt determination in Da’wah from Shaykh Ibn Baz (rh).
Half of Shaykh Abu Muntasir’s Family were executed by the regime, he then decided to make Hijrah to the Emirates but (you know how Arab countries are…) had to leave and migrated to the UK. He told me how he used to print his monthly newspaper about the situation of Sunnis in Iran and the crimes of the Neo-Safawi regime himself and distributed it driving himself to as many mosques and Islamic centres possible. He told me how some in their ignorance showed enmity towards him. An incident that he always mentions is how some gullible and fooled (by Taqiyyah and ‘Shia-Sunni unity’ talk of Iran and the Rafidah) started abusing and insulting him in Hyde Park, Speakers’ Corner (that he used to frequent in the late 90s)… fast forward just a few years later, he told me the same (mainly ignorant Lebanese, Syrian and other Arab Sunnis) kissed his forehead and apologised when they met him again after years. It took Shia death squads and militias and genocide against Sunnis by the lackeys of Iran, the Rafidah of Iran, for them to realise that the Shaykh was correct all along with his warnings about the dangers of Rafidism and Iran.
Since 2011 his dream came true and with the help of private donars (Arab regimes – contrary to the ‘Wahhabi petro dollars’ myth – don’t help at all, they often even put obstacles in the way of the Da’wah, I’m witness to that!) he started his own Islamic satellite TV channel (www.towheed.live) in Persian language on which I (Ex-Shia) used to have (will be rebooted soon, inshaallah) a daily live show with Ustadh Khaled Ansari (also Ex-Shia) between 2011-2014.
Shaykh goes everyday on air for at least 3 hours. Yes, everyday, keeping phone lines open (no filtering of calls as we don’t even have a proper studio let alone a control room with staff) for everybody to call in. Iranian Sunnis, Afghans and Tajiks love the show and then you have of course a bunch of Godless heathens like Iranian ultra nationalists and lastly Shia zealouts and even Iranian Evangelists who all have Ahlus-Sunnah as their target.
His PhD thesis (Shaykh studied in Damascus and Beirut) is about the Sunni history of Iran, or more precisely how modern day Iran was forcefully converted from a majority Sunni country into a majority Shia one.
More about the Iranian Baluch:
Iranian Baloch are virtually 100% Sunni. The regime does loads of missionary work sending tons of turban heads to the Iranian Sunni province of Imam Abu Dawud al-Sijistani (Sistani), Sistan and Baluchestan, however with very little to no success (the Shia clergy is despised among Shia Iranians in general, in Baluch culture they are considered as a form lof vermin, they even have a word for them, some bug, lol).
Sincerely, from all Iranian Sunnis, even my own people (closest to me ethnically and culturally), the Persian and Arab Sunnis of the south, the Baluch are my absolute favourite. Nobody can break them, the regime is trying for four decades now, they failed. As a matter of fact the regime is lucky that Iranian Baluch only number around 4 million, if they would number more (we have over 40 million Persian Shias) they would have long time broken the neck of every criminal Ayatullat and Basiji (who are roaming Baluch lands and building massive Shia temples/Hussainias) and free their lands from Persian chauvinists rule, be it in the form of Pahlavism (Shah) or Khomeinism.
Good news is: In their native province the Baluch make up still the majority of the population AND on the average have way more children then Iranian Shias (mostly non-natives) in Sistan and Baluchestan. The regime and Shia clergy have expressed more than once their worried with regards to the dangerously (for them) low birth rate of the average Iranian Shia family (very secular and irreligious) compared to that of the average Iranian Sunni family (very religious and conservative). Even ethnic Persian Sunnis have on the average more children then Iranian Shias who are often more extreme than westerners when it comes to children (many of them have no children or only one child).
Victory is ultimately for Ahlus-Sunnah and the occupiers will be shipped back to Qom, Isfahan, Shiraz and Tehran.
