Memoir of Martyred governor to be published



21 December 2010

The Only Martyred Governor is the probable title of a book on the life of martyr Ali Ansari by Dr Rashid Jafarpour.

IBNA: Presently the book has been passed to the martyr''s wife for final considerations.

A university lecturer, Jafarpour is a top researcher of political, social and cultural studies.

"At his 30th year of age, Ansari was assassinated by MKO," he said in an interview with IBNA. "So far no publications have been marketed about his life and the book is expected to count as a good start for recognition of his personality and activities to the society."

He said the book''s main focus is on the martyr''s life and martyrdom. "After receiving his diploma in mathematics, Ansari took teaching as a temporary job and then moved to the US to further his studies. In the US he received his PhD in mathematics. He also visited Imam Khomeini in Paris."

"As the Islamic Revolution triumphed, he came back to Iran and took a post as the governor''s deputy in Khorasan province. He then became Gilan''s governor. It was there that he was assassinated by one of MKO members during Ramadan," Dr. Jafarpour added.

He went on to say that the martyr''s pictures and memories make up a part of the book. "Hamideh Danesh Kazemi, Ansari''s wife, is presently serving as a member of the scientific board of Alzahra Univesity and is now proofreading the final draft of the book."

The work will be published by the Islamic Revolution Documents Center.

Loss of Memory in Pahlavi Prisons

In total, [I was in prison] about 6 years in two arrests. For the first time after several years, a soldier arranged my escape. I do not know why! Maybe he was one of the influential elements of Islamic groups. They took me to the hospital for the treatment of my hand, which was broken due to the callousness of an officer.

Hajj Pilgrimage

I went on a Hajj pilgrimage in the early 1340s (1960s). At that time, few people from the army, gendarmerie and police went on a pilgrimage to the holy Mashhad and holy shrines in Iraq. It happened very rarely. After all, there were faithful people in the Iranian army who were committed to obeying the Islamic halal and haram rules in any situation, and they used to pray.

Programs of New Year Holidays
Without blooming, without flowers, without greenery and without a table for Haft-sin , another spring has been arrived. Spring came to the camp without bringing freshness and the first days of New Year began in this camp. We were unaware of the plans that old friends had in this camp when Eid (New Year) came.

Attack on Halabcheh narrated

With wet saliva, we are having the lunch which that loving Isfahani man gave us from the back of his van when he said goodbye in the city entrance. Adaspolo [lentils with rice] with yoghurt! We were just started having it when the plane dives, we go down and shelter behind the runnel, and a few moments later, when the plane raises up, we also raise our heads, and while eating, we see the high sides ...
