Protests against the killing of people in Tabriz and other cities spread across the country, Rastakhiz party centers in several cities were targeted by demonstrators and were destroyed or set on fire. In Germany, at the invitation of the Union of Islamic Associations, a demonstration was organized in the city of Bonn. In this demonstration, which was attended by a large number of supporters of a branch of the confederation, about 20 German students left the line and entered the building when the line of marchers passed in front of Pars news agency headquarters. The crowd of demonstrators in front of the news agency office prevented the police from getting information about the situation inside the building. In a short period of time, the German friends messed up the things in that office and completely destroyed the office rooms and broke the existing communication devices and left the building under the protection of the students. It was on the way that the police learned about the students' attack and approached the protest authorities to detain them and stop the demonstration. Also, the members of the news agency office said that the rioters were German, although the police investigation continued for several weeks, but no harm or assault was done to the participating Iranians.

Fereydun Sahabi from Iran informed that if the imam sends a message to the soldiers and frees them from the oath to the Quran that they take to protect the monarchy when taking the headscarf, it will be effective in the morale of the soldiers. I [Sadiq Tabatabaei] informed Ahmad (Khomeini’s son) in Najaf about the matter by phone, and the imam also replied after an intercession that such a kind did not have the aspect of Shariah obligation, and acting contrary to it is obligatory under the existing circumstances.[1]

“Internal Reaction” published

Apart from the student activities and massive demonstrations in the years 1352 to 1354 (1973-1975), another part of my activities was the books I was writing myself. Of course, before they turned into books, I used to lend them in the form of nameless pamphlets in university libraries. Many harmful writings or books were taken to the mountains or transferred to other universities, sometimes even abroad.

Loss of Memory in Pahlavi Prisons

In total, [I was in prison] about 6 years in two arrests. For the first time after several years, a soldier arranged my escape. I do not know why! Maybe he was one of the influential elements of Islamic groups. They took me to the hospital for the treatment of my hand, which was broken due to the callousness of an officer.

Hajj Pilgrimage

I went on a Hajj pilgrimage in the early 1340s (1960s). At that time, few people from the army, gendarmerie and police went on a pilgrimage to the holy Mashhad and holy shrines in Iraq. It happened very rarely. After all, there were faithful people in the Iranian army who were committed to obeying the Islamic halal and haram rules in any situation, and they used to pray.

Programs of New Year Holidays
Without blooming, without flowers, without greenery and without a table for Haft-sin , another spring has been arrived. Spring came to the camp without bringing freshness and the first days of New Year began in this camp. We were unaware of the plans that old friends had in this camp when Eid (New Year) came.
