Iran News in Brief – March 20, 2021

Iranians celebrate Nowruz with traditional festivals, and it has been a national holiday since the rule of Cyrus the Great (538 BC). Historically, the celebration was to mark the victory of the Zoroastrian God, Ahura Mazda over the evil spirit, Ahriman. Due to the regime's mismanagement, this year, Iranians are bearing the brunt of a collapsed economy, some paying for bread in installments and standing in long lines for basic food items.

On Nowruz, Iranians celebrate the memory of the heroes fallen for freedom

As the Persian year comes to a close, people across Iran are paying homage to the countless heroes who have laid their lives down to bring freedom and democracy in Iran.

In Tehran, Resistance Units, activists and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), commemorated the founders of the MEK by laying flowers on their graves in Behesht-e Zahra cemetery.

The founders of the MEK, Mohammad Hanif NejadAli Asghar Badizadegan, and Saied Mohsen, were executed by the Shah regime in 1972 after undergoing severe torture in the prisons of the SAVAK, the Shah regime’s intelligence arm. The Shah regime gave them the choice to reduce their sentence from death to life in prison if they denounced their struggle for freedom. All three refused to bend to the Shah regime’s will. Their sacrifice has set an example for generations of MEK members and supporters, who continue their path and struggle to this day.
