Consecutive Lectures in UK

The conditions have changed completely since this week when we have approached to the month of Muharram (1357, 1978) and the Islamic revolution has reached its peak more and more. I have to accept to lecture in London and other small towns. On the other hand, I usually went to Paris once a week or at most once every two weeks and then returned to London again after a few days of staying in Neauphle-le-Château.

The Reason for Sit-In and Protest in Mashhad Hospital

After a few years, the Keramat Mosque became a center of revolutionary activities again in 1957, and it was the time when I returned from exile to Jiroft in November or possibly in late October. It was the time when the demonstrations in Mashhad and elsewhere began. We formed a headquarters in the Keramat Mosque to lead the work and struggles of Mashhad, in which the headquarters of the late Martyr Hasheminejad ...

Opposition to Bani-Sadr

I have been against Bani-Sadr since the day he was elected president because I did not see him in the path of the Imam and the system. Bani-Sadr had shown himself as a revolutionary man that everyone was forced to agree with him and even no one could say something against him openly. But before Bani-Sadrs hypocrisy became apparent, and at the height of his popularity, we spoke out against him wherever we could, ...

Joy of People in the conquest of Khorramshahr

As I mentioned, one of my most important activities was the writing of leaflets and posters about the operations of the soldiers of Islam at the fronts of right against wrong, and informing the lovers of the revolution and the supporters of the Imam and his followers in the region. If I say that my best memories in Kashmir, before coming to Iran, were the conquest of Khorramshahr, I have not exaggerated.

Reporting Khoramshahr Status to Imam

We waited for two or three days. We realized that the situation is deteriorating and getting worse. The pressure on our forces increased and the siege of Khorramshahr became tighter. It was on the 14th of October that we decided to go to Imam Khomeini to present a report on the situation in Khorramshahr and to express the betrayals that are taking place. Mr. Bani-Sadr, said that artillery shells and mortars are not candies to be ...

Part of the Memoirs of Seyyed Ghalbi Hossein Razavi Kashmiri

Ayatollah Khamenei Trip to Kashmir

Another pure memoir, which I can remember about the Imam Khomeini movement (before I came to Iran), is about the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei trip to Kashmir, which, if I am not mistaken, was in late 1980 or early 1981. One week before the arrival of the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei, a person named Eng. Javad Sarfaraz, who was later martyred along with Martyr Beheshti, arrived in Kashmir. He had a close relationship with the Islamic Association of Iranian Students.

Protection of Paarchin Military Industries

Immediately after fall of the Pahlavi military and security headquarters and the victory of the Islamic Revolution, people in every city and neighborhood took over the protection of the region, and established the Islamic Revolution Committees, which was a spontaneous revolutionary institution. The people of East Tehran also had voluntarily gathered in Parchin to protect the military industry of Parchin, which included several factories and critical centers of the military industry in about forty kilometers area.

An Excerpt from the Memoirs of Colonel Ali Ghamari

On October 22, 1980, it was announced that all the defenders of the garrison Khorramshahr have died a martyr, which had a very bad effect on fighters spirit, because our place, that is the garrison Khorramshahr, had been completely occupied by the Iraqis. Many cried when heard this news. I was very upset to hear it, but could not believe whether it was true. So, I sent one of the informants to investigate about it and then to let me know.

Special Memoirs of the Shah and the Reaction of Foreign Interviewers to Them

With the publication of the book "Mission for My Homeland" by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in September 1960, which can be considered as his autobiography and memoirs, some issues were raised for the first time that had not been mentioned before. According to Article 35 of the Iranian Constitution, he considered his monarchy a "Divine Gift", believed that God had chosen him and given him the mission to rule over the land and people of Iran.

Oral history teaching

The Most Important Transcriptional Damage

One of the serious drawbacks of oral history is in the transcriptional phase, which is unfortunately considered insignificant. Sometimes, some people cooperate in group writing; The weakest member of the group is selected for transcription. The weakest member is a person who does not have a strong social presence, his/her time is limited, and does not have communication skills, enough literacy, and ability. It seems that this person is a marginalized one! While ...
A review of the memories of Masoumeh Khansari Bozorgi-2

Memories of the First Dispatch

My first dispatch was in November 1981 during operation Tariq Al-Qods. Of course, I must point out that the operations were not announced in advance; when I was sent, I was stationed at the Ahvaz Medical Aid Headquarters for a few days and worked for some time in the Ahvaz and Dezful Health Centers. That is, I was active until the beginning of the operation. I remember once I went to see Mr.
Interview with retired Colonel Qassem Nematollahi-2

Telecommunications is Like a Nervous System of the Army

Telecommunications is the nerves of the military. Have you ever encountered people with upset nerves?! How are they?! Just as the nervous system transmits commands from the brain to the nerves, so do telecommunication systems deliver the commands of a commander to his subordinate elements. Telecommunications in war is like a chain of nerves for a human being. Without Telecommunications, the commander, the watcher and the artillery will be useless, and none of the commanders can do anything.
