Queen described as a 'war criminal' and compared to Adolf Hitler on Iranian-state TV

Queen described as a 'war criminal' and compared to Adolf Hitler on Iranian-state TV

Iranian state TV is taking a different tack to most coverage of the Queen's death, calling her a 'war criminal' and comparing her to Hitler

Iranian state TV has called the Queen 'one of the greatest criminals in the history of mankind' and compared her to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

Iran is one of the few countries not to offer an official message of condolence on the death of the Queen.

Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 on 8 September and since her passing, tributes and messages have been pouring in from all over the world... though not from Iran.

Even Russian president Vladimir Putin took time out from his busy schedule of getting humiliated in Ukraine to send a message to the new King, Charles III.

The Queen's funeral is scheduled for 19 September and will be attended by leaders and dignitaries from all over the world.

Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi has not been invited, however, and only an ambassador from the nation has been asked to attend.

It would be an understatement to say that relations between Iran and the UK are poor, and while most of the world's coverage on the Queen's death has been respectful, theirs has taken a different tack.

The Queen was compared to Hitler on Iranian state TV.

Iranian state TV said the Queen's death was 'considered good news for the world's oppressed people' in a special edition to mark her passing.

TV host Pejman Karimi said she left behind a 'grade sheet full of crime, abomination and filth', and Foad Izadi of Tehran University likewise took the opportunity to slate the late Queen, as it was he who came up with the 'greatest criminals in the history of mankind' line and compared her to Adolf Hitler.

He said: "Perhaps in light of her 70 years on the throne she should be included in the same list with Hitler.

"From a certain perspective we should be sad that this person died because she died without standing trial, without being punished and without paying for her crimes."

Iran is one of several countries along with India, Pakistan and Afghanistan which has contested ownership of the Koh-i-Noor diamond, which was given to Queen Victoria after British forces annexed the Punjab in 1849.

All four countries have demanded that the gem be returned to them, while the British government says the precious diamond was obtained legally.

Meanwhile in other Iranian news, women are no longer allowed in adverts after one commercial depicted the unspeakable lewdness of a lady eating an ice cream.

They're also cutting off people's fingers with a 'finger guillotine', leaving a number of convicted burglars with only their palms and their thumbs remaining.
