Tehran: Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, Iranian blogger and human rights activist, has been made Twitter trend #SaveMaleki after he announced to go on hunger strike in the imprisonment.
On 19 May 2012, Ronaghi began a hunger strike to protest the denial of his medical furlough. Ronaghi suffers from kidney failure and has been routinely denied medical furlough since his incarceration.
Hossein Ronaghi Maleki is a blogger and a human rights activist who blogged under the name “Babak Khorramdin.” Ronaghi Maleki was arrested for his role in disseminating anti-blocking software for internet users in Iran.
He spent ten months in solitary confinement inside IRGC’s Ward 2-A at Evin Prison, and was eventually sentenced to 15 years in prison on charges of “membership in the Iran Proxy internet group,” “propagating against the regime,” “insulting the Supreme Leader,” and “insulting the President.”
