Iranian-scientistThe spouse of an assassinated Iranian nuclear scientist has criticized the United Nations for failing to adopt measures to stop terrorist attacks against Iranian scientists.

In a letter sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday, Shohreh Pirani, the widow of assassinated Iranian nuclear scientist Darioush Rezaeinejad, criticized the UN inaction on curbing terrorist attacks against

Iranian scientists. 

“Why isn't there a concrete step to prevent targeted killings of Iranian scientists and researchers, which take place through collaboration among the US and UK intelligence services and Israeli assassins?” the letter asked. 

“The most painful of all is that no international human rights body has taken a slight measure to condemn such conducts, which flout basic human rights,” it added. 

“Why does the UN Security Council introduce terrorism as one of the most serious threats against international peace and security in the 21st century, and yet fails to take proper action against the terrorist bids targeting Iranian scientists?” the letter argued. 

The letter pointed out that the overall objective of all anti-terrorist resolutions is to fight terrorism by criminalizing acts of terror, bringing the perpetrators to justice, and preventing state terrorism. 

However, no effective measure has been taken to virtually combat terrorist activities and state terrorism, it argued. 

On July 23, 2011 unidentified gunmen killed Rezaeinejad outside his house. 

Rezaeinejad and his wife were on their way to their child's kindergarten when they were approached by two men on a motorbike. The gunmen called him by name and shot Rezaeinejad, 35, in the neck when he turned around. 

Rezaeinejad is not the first Iranian nuclear scientist targeted by a terrorist attack. 

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was targeted on January 11, when an unknown motorcyclist attached a magnetic bomb to his car near a college building of Allameh Tabatabaei University in northern Tehran. 

He was immediately killed and his driver, who sustained serious injuries, died a few hours later in hospital. 

In November, 2010, Majid Shahriari, another scientist, was killed in a terrorist attack and Dr. Fereydoun Abbasi, the current head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, was injured. 

Professor Masoud Ali-Mohammadi, another scholar at Tehran University, was also assassinated by a booby-trapped motorbike in the Iranian capital in January 2010.
