Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ayatollah Mohammad Mousavi Khoeiniha (born 1942 in Qazvin, Iran) is an Iranian cleric and secretary general of the reformist Association of Combatant Clerics. He was a founder of the now banned Salam newspaper and is a member of the Expediency Discernment Council. Khoeiniha was prosecutor general of Iran after revolution. He has been accused of execution of many political activists without any trial during his term. He was the spiritual leader of the Muslim Student Followers of the Imam's Line who led the hostage taking of American embassy staff on 4 November 1979. He is reported to have been "considerably to the left of the conservative mullah establishment" and also have had a less orthodox interpretive take on Koranic doctrine than them. Khoeniha remains a staunch defender of the embassy takeover, and still keeps "a four-drawer metal filing cabinet with a plate saying Property of the General Services Administration, " in his office, a souvenir taken from the embassy.show more
