His dreams did not last long however, as shortly after the commencement of his leadership, he found himself facing a brave opposing force led by Masoud Rajavi, who had not only made it through the difficult times of Pahlavi’s regime, but were also being welcomed by many Iranians at the time, especially the youth.
