So many Gonabadi Dervishes from all over Iran are moving toward Tehran to attend "Dervish Day" on 3rd of Esfand and also to express solidarity with imprisoned Dervishes.
According to received news to Majzooban Noor, a large number of Gonabadi Dervishes have announced that with their belongings and luggage will gather in front of Evin prison on 3 Esfand at 10 A.M to support jailed Dervish lawyers who are being held in Ward 209 of Evin prison. They also stated that, they would be willing to be arrested and sent to prison like Dervish lawyers and the other jaild Dervishes.
Based on sporadic reports, Gonabadi Dervishes have signed a letter(the full text of the letter is still unclear) saying: "take us to prison not watching the violence and cruelty which have done to our brothers and defenders."
It should be noted that, on 3rd Esfand 1387( Feb 22, 2009 ) , after repeated destruction of 3 of the Gonabadi Dervishes's worship-place (Hosseiniyeh) , belonging to the Nematollahi Gonabadi order followers in the cities of Qom , Boroujerd and Isfahan , and more pressurizing on the followers of Sufism and Mysticism, Gonabadi Dervishes from all over Iran decided to gather in front of the parliament of IRI into be able to make their members in the parliament to hear their voice on their citizen' s lawful rights. But the special riot gourds and security forces with plain clothes , practically had turned the streets around Baharestan Square into a military base and raided and arrested dervishes who had committed no crime. On the day of gathering , 22nd of Feb 2009, hundreds of dervishes were arrested illegally.
Since then , the third day of Esfand month was named as "Dervish Day "and Sufi Dervishes in all over of the world have honored this day.
