Youcef Alive Despite False Rumors

By Anna Sekulow1333121040000

The ACLJ has received confirmation that Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is alive in Iran as of today, March 26, 2012.

New false reports about Pastor Youcef’s execution continue to surface – whether these reports originate from a misinformation campaign initiated by the Iranian regime or just uninformed sources is unknown.

Many of these false reports stem from an inaccurate image being circulated on various blogs and social media sites of an Iranian man of Pastor Youcef’s age standing bound in front of a gallows surrounded by two armed, masked Iranian guards. The image is not of Pastor Youcef and has been circulating since at least July 2011.

The ACLJ believes these demonstratively false rumors about Pastor Youcef’s death are detrimental to his freedom and potential release. It also causes unnecessary anxiety for the family members awaiting his release and the millions of people who are praying for him around the world.

Diplomatic efforts in Brazil and other nations around the world continue to proceed as international pressure on Iran increases. The ACLJ is reaching more than 1.3 million Twitter accounts every day with news and updates about Pastor Youcef through the Tweet for Youcef campaign. A companion Tweet for Youcef campaign in Portuguese is also reaching over 20,000 Twitter accounts each day. The Tweet for Youcef campaign is now reaching more than 90 percent of the world’s nations.

Update 3.30.2012: Today is the 900th day that Pastor Youcef has been illegally imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith – separated from his church, his wife, and his two young boys. Please continue to pray for his release, and share his story through the Tweet for Youcef campaign.
