At the end of 1401, news of the investigation into the murder of a martyr from the Assyrian minority was published on the Internet. In this news, the Assyrian-Iranian Society requested the publication of a picture and the name of this martyr. Help find his family. Yesterday, a farewell ceremony was held for the martyr Jani Beit Oshana in Golzar Shahdi in Tehran, and Tehrani families filled the void of his family.
Isnables: though find a soul. It was full of alienation and loneliness. But now, the news of his arrival in the city became complicated all around. The mothers were ready to take on the role of the mothers of the martyr “Jani Bet Oshana” in the farewell ceremony, and Iranian girls from Harnsal and Denny put themselves in the place of his missing sister. As we entered Gulzar Shehadeh, the Islamic Republic Army’s marching band also arrived. It was enough for me to turn my eyes to notice the presence of people and their path leading to Gulzar Shehadeh. Before reaching Gulzar Shahada, at the beginning of Behesht Street, a large informative poster of the farewell ceremony of this Assyrian martyr was installed in the city. I entered the flower garden. About half an hour is left before the farewell ceremony of the martyr “Jani Beit Oshana”. I’d rather be outside and watch the people at the party. The number is gradually increasing. But what’s strange to me is the presence of teenage ’80s girls at the event. I ask everyone what made you come? He says quickly and without going back: I knew that the family of the martyr had died. I came to say goodbye instead of his family.”
As if the exile of this martyr had tied hearts. Many people came to the farewell ceremony of Shahid Jani Beit Oshana with a cover perhaps in our society. Coverage is not a common and acceptable habit. But again, regardless of clothing, religion, language, and level of attachment to religion; Together they mourned the martyrdom of a young man who died for the territorial integrity of his country, now 39 years later; He was to be buried in complete exile, without his family.
Now almost a few minutes have passed since 16:00 and Gulzar Shehadeh’s attendees are asking people to celebrate. Enter Marj Shuhada building. The female part of the Miraj is visibly full. Some of the mothers of the martyrs also came to recite a strange prayer in the plain of Karbala. Few others are busy reading the Qur’an, praying or visiting Ashura. It seems that each of them is the owner of the assembly and the owner of the mourning. opens the way through the back door; Relatives of the martyr Jani entered the house of Oshana. Cousin, uncle and nephew.
They go to the right side of Gulzar. Besides them, Christian clerics and Assyrian representatives are also present in the main council. It doesn’t take long for them to announce; They will bring the martyr. A large crowd gathered under the coffin. So many are surrounded by it that it’s almost hard to see. During the entry of the body of the martyr, people throw flower petals on the coffin.
A few minutes of the ceremony are spent in the formal conversations and thanks that are usually common in these venues. But what is remarkable during all this time is that the shrine of Al-Sayyid Waslar for the martyrs of the world and his name did not come out of anyone’s mouth. Christian clergy ask people to stand and recite their religious prayers over the martyr.
Any language and any religion
Everyone stands in honor of the martyr Yerba. The words are in Assyrian and are the only thing that can be understood; Amen they said. After the Assyrian Christians finished praying; A Muslim clergyman present on the program asks Christian clerics to ask permission to touch Jani Rosa Wahhab’s body. Christian friend Hazrat Ababda…read it. The closest analogy I have ever heard in my entire life; That’s it. The values were almost the same and the fate was the same.
in the next; The solemn ceremony begins with the military band in the yard. Martyr Jani Beit Oshana is a soldier of the 55th Airborne Brigade of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The body of the martyr was now in the yard and among the people. People feel as if a loved one has returned; Like butterflies, they circle around the coffin and the holy body of John, and many mothers weep.
We had no other expectations
“Huik Be Bo” is one of our fellow Assyrians who participated in this event. In an interview with journalists, he said: “We are like all our countrymen; we consider the homeland our honor. That is why when it came to defending the homeland in a sacred defense, everyone tried to defend the homeland and their religion or ethnicity does not matter. This is why we see that the religious minority presented more than 200 A martyr on the soil of our country. I am amazed at the crowd that I see today. In the sense that my Muslim countrymen participated in this ceremony and held the funeral ceremonies for this dear martyr like their martyrs. I also expected that no difference should be made. The day of the funeral is Friday and I am waiting for my fellow citizens to be We also have the day of the funeral.”
What is common in the Assyrian religion and ethnicity is that Assyrians sacrifice their lives for their land. This is what Hoyk Bebo tells us about the status of martyrdom among the Assyrian minority. For this reason we see that the Christian community. He sacrificed many martyrs to preserve his religion and territorial integrity. Anyway, if we skip these explanations; “When we see the body of a martyr returning to the country after 39 years without a family, we all put ourselves in the shoes of his father, mother and brothers and come to say goodbye to him.”
All Iran’s sacrifices
The body of the martyr is brought to the ceremony to be seen off by his relatives. Some of the mothers of security martyrs also stand beside them. Everyone who has lost a loved one seems to feel the same way. This time, the mother of the security martyr weeps for her son instead of her son and helps the relatives of this martyr and his nephew. The only survivor of his family who hugged him. A young girl who may not even have met her uncle, now her arms are her only refuge, and in the midst of her tears, she goes to charity for her uncle’s remaining bones.
What was amazing during the farewell ceremony for the body of the Assyrian martyr Jani Beit Oshana was the presence of two different religions, religions, languages and races to perform the farewell ceremony. Those hours and minutes are like the intense history of Iranian society, which was no different from the time of sorrows and hardships, whatever your religion or rituals. You just had to be a comb for your compatriots’ tears. It was the same even in times of joy. All of which gathered several hundred people in that state; There was only home.
They sing the Ababda prayer. Tears mixed now for the leader of the martyrs and a martyr from the generation of Christ’s apostles.
