BAD ENOUGH TO MAKE MARTYRS IN THE FIRST PLACE...:

Iran police arrest mourners in cemetery memorial (Parisa Hafezi, 7/30/09, Reuters)

Iranian police arrested mourners who gathered at a Tehran cemetery to commemorate victims of the unrest that followed the country's disputed June presidential election, witnesses said on Thursday.

The police forced Mirhossein Mousavi, a defeated candidate at the election, to leave the cemetery.[...]

Ahmadinejad is under pressure from his hardline supporters over his initial choice of vice-president and his decision to dismiss a hardline intelligence minister who criticized the president for defying Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.


...but not allowing them to be mourned?
