Martyrdom of Mostafa Khomeini

We had just arrived in England from France, when suddenly heard that Mostafa Khomeini[1] has died. We were all shocked. We did not expect it and this news made us all saddened...

It was first announced that he had a stroke, but later it was cleared up that he had been poisoned and martyred. The news was very doleful for us. We felt that the struggles has been received a heavy blow. We should do anything to show our protest and to express our anger. We discussed about what we should do in our meetings.

In November, a rally was formed in London with lots of attempts in which the protesters from all around the England took part. We also participated in the rally very seriously and shouted slogans in support of Imam Khomeini and the martyr clerics and in opposition to the regime, and we gathered in front of Iran embassy and added to the intensity of our anger and slogans[2].

The news implied the universal pandemonium in conviction of this act of the regime (the martyrdom of Mostafa Khomeini). Militant Muslims and students in the United States, Canada, and different parts of Europe mourned in the loss of this great man, and they held mourning meetings and rallies.

After a while, we returned to Syria and became busy doing our usual works.

After completing his elementary education, he studied Islamic courses and Arabic literature at Qom Seminary. He spent his courses under the supervision of ayatollah Haeri, ayatollah Sadoughi, ayatollah Sultani, and ayatollah sheikh Mohammad Javad Isfahani, and he spent the highest courses of principles before Imam Khomeini, grand ayatollah Boroujerdi and ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Da’ama’ad.

He became a polymath before thirty years old, and he taught the highest courses of the principles in the seminary of Najaf-Ashraf for ten years... He married Mrs. Masoumeh Haeri Yazdi, daughter of Sheikh Morteza Haeri, in 1956. Simultaneously with the exile of Imam Khomeini from Iran to Turkey on the November 4th 1964, he was arrested and imprisoned in Ghezelqale prison. After 57 days, he was released in the hope of expel him from Iran. After consulting with the scholars of the seminary, however, the above-named changed his mind not to go to the Turkey, until he was captured by Col. Badie, the head of the Qom SAVAK, and he was deported to Tehran, and then he was deported to Turkey, and later he was transferred from Turkey to Iraq with Imam on October 5th 1965. This great scholar has many writings such as, Al-Qawa'id al-Hakmieh and al-Qawa'id al-Rajaliyah and al-Qawa'id al-Osoliyah and Ejarah and al-Bayee in three volumes and two volumes books in Islamic jurisprudence and brief and detailed principals.

[2].  "On Saturday, October 29th 1977, a majestic commemoration was held at 15:30 in the center of London by Muslim brothers and sisters. It was began at the Caxton Hall in the southwest of London. After reciting some verses of the Holy Quran and hearing the martyr mujahid Nasser Sadiq's voice [it was probably a recording on the tape, because Naser Sadiq had been executed on April 19, 1972], one of the Muslim brothers delivered a very effective speech, during which he uncovered the crimes of the ruthless Pahlavi royal court and the fascist regime of the Shah and he pointed out how the revolutionary and committed Muslim elements were purged inside and outside the country by hands of disgraced mercenaries of the Shah. Thereafter, a massive demonstration took place for two hours, in which more than 300 Muslim brothers and sisters participated; and the motive of this rally was the martyrdom of the ayatollah Mostafa Khomeini by the hands of the Shah's agents, and also opposition to the terrorist policies of the Shah [Another martyr of the clergy, Ayatollah Mujahid al-Seyyed Mostafa Khomeini, Najaf Ashraf, Iranian militant cleric publications outside the country, 1977].
