Tehran, February 15, IRNA -- Members of Parliament on Tuesday deplored the call for protest and demanded judicial action against leaders of the provocation.

Some 233 MPs issued a statement deploring the call for protest (for Monday) which was left unheeded by the public.

'While the lofty message of the Islamic Revolution after 32 years is now inspiring people in Tunisia and Egypt undermining the pillars of global hegemony, Mousavi and Karroubi invited people to come to streets in support of people in Egypt but in fact they have served the agenda of the US and Zionist regime,' read the statement.

'The uprising and revolutions in the Muslim World have been inspired by the victorious Islamic Revolution in Iran while the US and Zionist occupiers are wary of formation of democratically-elected governments such as the Islamic Republic of Iran,' said the statement.

'Karroubi and Mousavi should have respected the millions turnout of people on the 32nd anniversary victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11 the statement of which rendered support for the liberation movements in Egypt and Tunisia,' the MPs added.

You should know that the patience of nation is running out vis-a-vis your wrong doings and all call for judicial action against you, it said.

'As the Iranian lawmakers, we assure the people in Egypt and Tunisia that the great Iranian nation who is on the forefront of campaign against the global arrogance and its allies will support them under the wise leadership of the Supreme Leader and will never let the mercenaries hired by the US and Zionists mastermind plots against them.'

While reading the statement, a group of MPs chanted slogans -- 'Down with Mousavi, Karroubi, Khatami, or Mousavi and Karroubi should be executed and Hashemi insight, insight.'
