The Oral History of Seven Militant Groups



Book Review:
Author: Jalil Amjadi
Publishing Date: December, 2004, 1st Edition

When the leaders and members of the organization of the People's Mujahedin of Iran manifested signs of pro-Marxist tendencies, and there was a subsequent official ideological shift among them from Islam; the Islamic militants reacted to this turn about by founding secret organizations for armed struggle against the Pahlavi regime in different cities and regions in an attempt to uphold their religious beliefs and continue with their struggle. The most notable of these groups are Ommat-e Vāhedeh (The Unified Nation), Badr, Fallāh, Tohidi-ye Saf, Falaq, Mansouroun, and Movvahedin.

The members of the above mentioned seven groups were most significantly active in locating and destroying the military and security bases of the Pahlavi regime. Many of these groups were tracked down and dissolved during the final years of the Pahlavi regime; however, on the eve of the Islamic Revolution, their surviving members took an active role in organizing the demonstrations.

This book entails an analysis of the history of struggles, formation, and the fate of these groups.

Ironman
