The Singer “Shahin Najafi” and his girlfriend in Germany
As of 15 May 2012, more than 800 people had joined a Facebook campaign calling for Najafi to be executed, saying they were ready to assassinate him if necessary. An web site, Shia-Online.ir, offered a US$100,000 bounty to anyone who killed Najafi. In May 2012, the online site HonareNab.ir posted an online “Shoot the Apostates” flash computer game inviting people to shoot and kill Najafi. “Those who love Imam Hadi can practice killing Shahin Najafi by playing this flash game,” said Honar Nab Eslam, who developed the game.
