He was arrested on February 13, 2019, nine days after he posted a video saying “This regime is neither Islamic, nor a republic, nor revolutionary, Revolutionary Guard Corps, an elite branch of the Iranian military, and members of the Basij paramilitary force. This regime is ruled by a minority that has sucked the blood out of this country for 40 years.” on Twitter which was removed later and but after was on Telegram.
