According to the Iranian opposition, nearly 70,000 people have lost their lives due to the novel coronavirus pandemic in Iran. Since the beginning of this crisis, the Iranian regime resorted to coverup and inaction to divert people’s attention from their righteous demands and control the restive Iranian society. This was because the November 2019 and January 2020 nationwide Iran protests had shaken the regime’s foundations, and the mullahs know the next uprising will end in their downfall.  

In this regard, the state-run Mostaghel daily published an article.

The victim, identified as Morteza Jamali, was the father of two small children. This execution is against all the teachings of Islam and could only be justified by the mullahs’ regime reactionary and medieval interpretation of Islam, which mirrors that of the Islamic State’s terrorist organization.

Young female supporters of the Iranian Resistance hold pictures of NCRI’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi in a demonstration in London.

Iranian women’s struggle for freedom has had many torchbearers over the decades. Many known and unknown heroines who sacrificed their lives, family, homes, wealth and fame etc. for the cause of freedom.

There are heroines such as Fatemeh Amini and Mehrnoush Ebrahimi, who sacrificed their lives in the struggle against the Shah and became role models for female intellectuals and university students who were willing to make a sacrifice for change to happen. Or Ashraf Rajavi, a Bachelor of physics from Tehran’s Sharif Industrial University. Despite having the opportunity to lead a good life, Ashraf chose to help the underprivileged and travelled long distances to various cities and villages to learn about their problems and help them find solutions. She got to know the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and became an elite member of the organization. Her pioneering efforts inspired many young women and girls who joined the MEK movement after the revolution, and she became their role model. Today, her name symbolizes the dedication of Iranian women to freedom, and the MEK has named its headquarters, Ashraf 1 and Ashraf 3, after her.
