LONDON, UK: Iranian state media reportedly described Queen Elizabeth II as "one of the greatest criminals in the history of mankind" and likened her to Adolf Hitler in a series of disturbing rants. The Queen's demise on Thursday, September 8, was mourned across the globe, with many leaders calling her one of the most beloved figures in modern history.

However, the authoritarian regime of Iran declared that the monarch's demise was "good news for the world's oppressed people" and that her legacy is "full of crime, abomination, and filth." Notable adversaries Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping put aside their politics and extended their condolences to the royal family last week, but the Iranian regime has not commented on her passing nor the ascension of King Charles, while its state-run TV channels have been propagating vile remarks about her legacy.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Iran's Channel 1 network saw scholar Foad Izadi of Tehran University allege, "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." The comments were translated by the Middle East Research Institution.

"The queen is a famous imperialist, colonialist, war criminal, and the aggression of the British army throughout the world is done under her name," Izadi continued in an English-language broadcast on government network PressTV, "British armed forces are the queen's armed forces. So we have just a handful of people who have engaged in so many atrocities in the last century: Hitler, for example, some American presidents belong to that list, and Queen Elizabeth that oversaw the end of the British empire. The number of people that have been killed are in the millions and the queen is responsible for that." He added, "Justice was not delivered to one of the most vicious individuals of that last century."

PressTV's website also ridiculed the Queen for presiding over a "colonial reign" that "inflicted excruciating suffering on millions across the world." They blamed her for Iran not having sovereignty over Bahrain as well as the crackdown on protesters against the Iranian regime in 2009. According to the website, demonstrators had been influenced by the Queen and the BBC to demand free and fair elections and call for an end to the theocratic regime.

There has been some backlash to the monarchy from the radical left, as we reported on controversial comments made by Carnegie Mellon Professor Uju Anya who wished "excruciating pain" on the monarch. However, the vast majority of the reactions have been mournful and somber, with most looking beyond institutional problems to commemorate the sovereign's flawless legacy.

It's worth noting that Queen Elizabeth visited Iran in 1961 and stayed in the stunning Golestan Palace in Tehran. She was accompanied by then-empress Farah Pahlavi and the pair visited Isfahan, Shiraz, and Persepolis. King Charles also visited Iran on a humanitarian mission after tens of thousands of lives were lost in the devastating 2003 earthquake in the city of Bam.
