The lake Maharlou that had an area of 300 km2, is located about 15km from provincial city of Shiraz in the Fars province. The lake which was the habitat for wild animals and birds is another casualty of the savage Mullahs. Now the lake Maharlou has become a dried up lake with no sign of life.
Maharlou lake located in southwest of Iran (Fars Province) is an intra-continental sedimentary basin. Its area was about 300 km2 extended with an average water depth of 1.5m. Maharlou lake was not a very large lake, but it was important for a dry country like Iran, and for thousands birds, animals, and people who lived in or near the lake.
Lake Maharlou, like almost all other lakes in central Iran, was a salt lake. Lake Maharlou was a protected area, and it was considered a national heritage. But as we said before, the protected areas in Iran are Mullah protected areas, that means they are totally unprotected. Many say: “When the savage Mullahs dont care about the people and kill, torture and rape them, why they should care about the environment and the animals ?”
As we said before, Iran is a dry country, like the western parts of the US. In fact, most parts of Iran are like Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, etc. So, its so obvious that the lakes and water resources should be very important for Irans regime, but its not. The savage Mullahs systematically and deliberately destroy the environment by their stupid backward plans.
More than 100,000 flamingoes lived in Lake Maharlou. Now, after the tragedy, all flamingoes are dead or migrated. The story of Lake Maharlou is just another symbolic and tragic story in the Mullah era, a story that tells us how the Mullahs systematically and deliberately destroy Iran and its environment, its economic, its people, its natural resource, its image, its reputation, etc.
Now some say: “In the Mullah Age, nightingales, flamingoes, canaries, and all other angelic birds were killed in Iran, and instead, crows and vultures occupied Iran“. It’s really the true meaning of what has happened to Iran.
