I will personally kill him
When Ayatollah Taleqani found out that his child has been arrested, he stayed away from sight for several days to protest.
(Afterwards) when he went to Imam, Imam said to him: “Your son is one of the deviators connected with the leftist groups, and you should not become so upset that he has been arrested.” He then added: “By Allah, if Ahmad gets involved in the slightest deviation and his verdict is death, I will personally kill him.”
