Soheil Arabi, a thirty-year-old man was sentenced to death by Iran's Supreme Court in crime for his Facebook posts that were linked to his profile. These posts were deemed to insult The Holy Prophet Muhammad, according to the Human Rights Watch reports.

There have been certain groups who have now been calling on Iran's Judiciary to set him free. A Political Figure, Eric Goldstein, who is the deputy Middle East and North Africa Director of a Human Rights Organization, stands beside Arabi.

He had made several statements in hope that they may let Arabi become a free man once again saying that the judiciary was penalizing free expression with death. Arabi was arrested in November 2013 along with his wife by agents from Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

He had 8 Facebook pages under different names
Through several investigations and assured claims from informed sources, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran had full information that Arabi had kept nearly eight Facebook pages under different names, all for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

He kept posting material that was disgraceful and insulting to which he later admitted. Eric Goldstein had also said that it is very cruel to punish someone for his Facebook posts or things that he may post or see on the Internet.

Maybe Mr. Eric wasn't aware that even the Articles of the Human Rights state to protect religious regimes. Similarly, Article 262 of the Islamic Penal Code states that insulting or disgracing the Prophet Muhammad will carry a punishment of death.

He was sharing the posts of others on his page
Arabi's Lawyer, Vahid Moshkhani said the court was not accepting his defense that Arabi was simply sharing the posts made by others on his profile and nothing more. 

Furthermore, Nastaran Naima who was Arabi's wife had told Human Rights Watch that she and her husband were arrested by the agents from their home in Tehran in November.

She also said that she was soon released but her husband was kept in a special section of Evin Prison. After a while, he was kept in solitary confinement for two months subjecting him too long interrogation sessions. She claimed that his husband wasn't allowed to meet his lawyer. Later, he was transferred to ward 350 of Evin Prison.

Arabi was sentenced to death in August 2014 by Iran's Supreme Court and the decision was upheld. This incident became huge news around the world and was brought out as a warning against people who disgrace the religious norms.
