Hossein Shariatmadari and the bazaaris
21 Jul 2010
Hossein Shariatmadari, the chief editor of the conservative newspaper Kayhan, which is directly under the supervision of the Office of the Supreme Leader, lashed out at merchants in Tehran’s bazaar who supported strikes in the wake of proposed tax hikes. In a lengthy editorial on July 19, Shariatmadari, who often acts as the unofficial mouthpiece of Ayatollah Khamenei, unleashed a myriad of moral and economic accusations against the bazaari merchants as well as an unlikely threat to replace the traditional bazaar with government-run stores.
