Iran: A Leading Intellectual Under Arrest

Shahram Kholdi, a UK based blogger & academic, reports” through a few contacts in Tehran, now, I am able to inform you that Dr. Ramin Jahanbegloo has been “missing” for quite a few days. I still hope that this news is nothing but a rumour and is not true, and even if Dr. Jahanbegloo has been arrested, it has been a mistake, and he would be released soon.”
A group of students in university of Tehran has launched a weblog in Persian for Jahanbegloo's freedom. In blog we read that Jahnabegloo is under arrest…please help us to protest against this act.
