“As a matter of fact, his objective of spreading drivel is to attempt to alarm individuals [out] of getting immunized, while the head of the system and different authorities got Pfizer, and they don’t give it to individuals with the pardon that they don’t confide in the West.”
UK common freedoms dissident Peter Tatchell said: “Ayatollah Tabrizian consolidates logical obliviousness with an unrefined appeal to homophobia.”
“He’s defaming both the inoculation program and LGBT+ individuals without a sliver of proof.
“By looking to frighten people in general into not getting inoculated against Covid-19, he is fuelling the pandemic and putting lives in danger.
“Normal of numerous Iranian strict and political pioneers, his unusual, nonsensical cases substitute LGBTs and put religious bias before logical information.”
