Tell us about the days before the victory of the Islamic Revolution and what factors made you take this path?
People were in dire straits in those days, that is, when we went to school, we suffered from the suffocating silence that prevailed in the social environment. In such a way that the student could not even easily trust his friend and say something, because due to the security conditions of the Pahlavi regime, he was afraid to be a member of SAVAK or to convey his words to SAVAK. The general atmosphere of the society was fear and suffocation, so the political groups were doing their activities completely secretly, and there was support, and I started working as one of the helpers. In this regard, I met a teacher in 1954, and he introduced me to the book of Seyyed Qutb’s The Philosopher’s Views, and because of this, the police arrested me and I was tortured a lot. In 1355, I entered Ajab Shir military barracks, where I met a commander named Bahram Taheri, who was extremely revolutionary and religious, and we worked together. They used to give me leave and I would take Imam Khomeini’s leaflets from Tehran to the barracks by train, and we would distribute these leaflets at night in the nursing home. These were the main activities of my servant until my service ended, I came to Tehran and 3 months before the victory of the revolution, a headquarters was established in Tehran University, and planning was done by Mr. Taheri, who was the commander of the military field of this headquarters. On the 22nd of Bahman, the revolution had won, but Shahrbani would not surrender, and we, who were a group of eight people from the University of Tehran, arrived in front of the Shahrbani at 1:00 p.m. on the 22nd of Bahman. We made ourselves. Unfortunately, in order to disperse the people, the police started firing a few bullets into the body of my servant and a few others, and the people helped us and took us to the hospital, and 2 hours passed when I heard the news of the fall of the police.
When you were injured, how did you feel when you heard the news of the victory of the Islamic Revolution?
We couldn’t believe it at all, because the army was very armed and the people were fighting with their bare hands. Until they brought the TV into the hospital room and we cried when we heard the revolutionary songs because the nation finally reached an eternal liberation and they can breathe easily.
Your activities after the victory of the Islamic revolution?
After the victory of the Islamic revolution, it took me a year to undergo treatment. I started my first activity as Mr. Raisi’s deputy in the anti-bullying headquarters, and after that I was transferred to Jihad Karaj and then I was selected to be responsible for one of the missile industries. I was trying to enter the departments where I could manage and organize the work. In total, I held 29 municipal, provincial, national and military responsibilities in the political, social, cultural and economic fields and I taught at the university for 25 years.
Which characteristic of the Islamic Revolution would you emphasize to your students?
With the atmosphere created by the enemy, the students believed that the Pahlavi regime was much better than now, and it was my responsibility to inform them that this was not the case. In those days, the minimum salary was 150,000 tomans, and 9 people lived in a 12-meter room, and poverty made people poor when everything was there, but there was no money. Issues such as poverty, bureaucracy and the security situation brought the masses of people to the streets so that people could pull out the roots of oppression from the soil forever.
