In the critical condition of the Iranian society after the 1979 revolution, the militant groups like the MeK got ready for violence very soon. They had no idea of developing the society both politically and socially instead of resorting to terror. The MeK leader Massoud Rajavi was a power thirsty who wanted "Everything".

Following the 1979 Iranian Revolution in which the early Mujahedin Khalq had an almost active part, the MKO broke with the newly established Islamic government. The leader of the Islamic government of Iran viewed them as hypocrites who mixed Shiites Islam with Marxism, "a bizarre mixture".

The survivor of the MKO leaders Massoud Rajavi who could not find any part in the post revolutionary Iranian politics declared armed struggle against Islamic Republic on June 20,1981. The alleged 500,000 MKO supporters launched mass demonstrations in Iranian cities announcing their ruthless armed warfare against the government using cold and warm weapons such as guns, knives, cutters and screwdrivers.

 

The date which signified a turning point in the history of the group is annually celebrated by the MKO propaganda. Every year, the group holds events spending large amounts of money to glorify the start of its violent opposition against its nation.

 

About a week later, on June28 a massive explosion occurred at the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, killing over seventy two high ranking officials of the Iranian government including Chief Justice Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti, four cabinet ministers (Health, Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Ministers), twenty-seven parliament members and several other government officials (according to Wikipedia).The June 28th bombing was called "Haft-e-Tir" (Tir 7th,1360/ Iranian calendar) incident by the Iranian people. Haft-e-Tir was the beginning point of the serial assassination of the Iranian officials.

 

Two months after Haft-e-Tir, on August 30 another bomb was detonated at the office of the Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar killing him and the president Mohammad Ali Rajaie. By the way Massoud Rajavi's violent strategy did not succeed to overthrow the Islamic Republic although a large number of the authorities were victimized by his violent terror campaign that was supposed to take over the Iranian government in 3 months.

 

Ali Ferasati is a former member of the MKO and the writer of the book "Peaceful Struggle, Both Strategy and Tactic" in which he condemns MKO's violent strategy. He believes that leftist Iranians especially Mujahedin Khalq never sought peaceful solutions for the critical situation of the post revolutionary Iranian society.

 

"Ultimately, struggle for power and the will of violent movements ended with the massacre of June 20th 1981," Ferasati writes. "Every year in the anniversary of June 20th, the MKO launches large scale propaganda saying ‘June 20th is unquestionable', ‘June 28th is unquestionable ‘.Using the term unquestionable originates in their totalitarian thinking; in today's modern world everything is changing and relative, nothing is excluded from doubt." (Ferasati, Ali, Peaceful struggle, Both Strategy and Tactic, P.70 and 71, in Persian)
