Astrologer's Prediction of Raisi's Death Stirs Controversy

Thursday, 05/23/2024

Turkish astrologer İlayda Aşkın's prediction of the helicopter crash that killed Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has sparked a social media sensation.

Aşkın, known for her accurate forecasts including plane crashes and political outcomes, had foretold major upheavals for Iran, pinpointing the exact date of the late President's death as a significant date. 

On April 13, 2024, just over a month before the incident, Aşkın tweeted, "The curtain will open for Iran after April 29, especially around May 19. The real agenda is then."

This prediction turned prophetic when President Raisi and his Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, died in a helicopter crash exactly on the day of the predicted upheaval, May 19.

The accuracy of her prediction, particularly the specificity of the dates involved, has fueled intense discussion and further propelled Aşkın's reputation as a seer amidst her followers and skeptics alike. Her previous predictions, which have included the outcomes of the 2023 Presidential elections in Turkey, added layers of credibility to her recent forecasts.
