I knew Hajj Motovasselian up close
One of the important responsibilities of universities is building competent, outstanding and valuable forces for managing different sectors of the country and showing influential presence in the events of the country.
I would like to refer to the outstanding and immortal commander, Mr. Hajj Ahmad Motavaselian, as an example of outstanding graduates of this university. I knew this great man up close and I saw his diligence, high morale and efforts. He was one of the outstanding personalities during the Sacred Defense Era.In my opinion, you dear youth should read the biographies of these outstanding personalities who have taught us many lessons. You should read the biography of this great personality, particularly the part which is related to this dear commander's operations including his operation in the western area of the country, in FathulMubin and in BaytulMuqaddas. Another example is Shahid Mahmud Shahbazi who always cooperated with this great man.
