– the 21st memorial ceremony of the martyr Sayyed Asadollah Lajevardi
held at the hall of the martyrs of 7th of Tir (shohadaye haftome tir).
The ceremony held with the presence of military authorities, martyr’s
friends and the public people.
Seyyed Asadollah Lajevardi was born in
a very religious family who lived in southern Tehran in 1934. His
father Seyyed Ali Akbar acquainted his son with Islam and Quran from the
very early years.
As martyr Lajevardi played an important role in
demonstrations and political activities against Pahlavi dictatorship, he
was repeatedly arrested and prosecuted by SAVAK and was many times sent
to prison where he experienced very harsh tortures.
He was the first
to talk about Mojahedin-e Khalq corruption while in prison. During the
era called as "prison in prison” because in prison he was boycotted by
the elements of MKO.
After the victory of the Islamic Revolution
martyr Lajevardi was appointed the Islamic Revolution Prosecutor
General. After that he became the director of the organization for
prisons. Seyyed Asadollah Lajevardi was finally targeted and killed by
MKO terrorist elements on August 23, 1998 while he was working in his
shop in Ja’afari Bazaar in Tehran.Message End/
