Don’t get me wrong, there is a hatred of cemeteries in Islam, and I don’t know what to say about today’s municipal news, which shows the Tehran municipality’s indifference to reducing earthquake risk in the big city. Tehran.
The first major news, according to Hossein Nazari, deputy urban services in the municipality of Tehran, two districts in east and west Tehran have been investigated for the construction of a new cemetery.
Then the main paragraph of the news: “The only reason for building a new cemetery in Tehran is not to fill Behesht-e-Zahra, but to decentralize Behesht-e-Zahra (peace be upon him), so that it has the necessary capacity in times of earthquakes or other.” crises.”
In disaster crisis management, it is necessary to see such places, of course, besides and after the implementation of a lot of retrofit plans, damage reduction, training, etc., that the head of the city’s crisis management organization should say: “Citizens must Preparing tents for earthquakes” And now the deputy mayor says the above sentences in Tehran suggesting that the men succumbed to the earthquake.
Until today, I had never seen the municipality of an earthquake-prone or even non-earthquake-prone city behave like this. I know the country and always wanted to change them all to improve safety conditions in our beloved country.
It means that there are already between 12 and 14 million people in Tehran, and in better words, what about the family relations of this number with the whole country, i.e. all of Iran?! Does anyone really want to get involved in this matter and hold the city responsible for their actions!
