This is a funny Iranian prison guideline:
Reza Sadeghi, the head of Isfahan Province Endowments and Charities, has reported that 16 prisoners on death row were pardoned for having memorized the Quran.
ISNA reports that according to Sadeghi, the release ceremony of 15 prisoners took place at the central Isfahan Prison in the presence of the warden and 2,000 prisoners.
According to the report, five of the pardoned prisoners were women and the rest were men, One of the prisoners had his death sentence reduced to 15 years in jail.
Offering them to save their lives in exchange for giving up their freedom of conscience.
If Islam is recruiting inmates in the UK, I do not see why this would not happen in an officially sanctioned fashion in Iran. The perks of theocracy.
