History is a collection of data and information that is passed from generation to generation hoping to be as truthful as possible. We all know that our memory doesn’t record flawlessly our experiences like a tape camera, but we tend to rely on what we have gained and record it. What I am about to reveal is about the things I personally witnessed and recorded in my memory with certainty.
I can attest with certainty that during my younger years in Iran, Islam was out of people’s life. What I mean is people in Iran never thought that this ideology was part of their life. Those who wished to practice it were free to do so and those who didn’t, nobody dragged them and forced them to do their Islamic rituals. In other words, religion in Iran was a very private matter and to some very irrelevant.
History proves that before the arrival of Pahlavi’s dynasty, Iranian women were extremely oppressed and had absolutely no rights. Reza Shah Pahlavi altered that immediately. Next thing you know, the lives of Persian women radically and drastically improved. Iranian women became part of the Persian society and were free. Reza Khan treasured the idea of restoring the Iranian nation and leading it on the path of progress. He loved Iran. His son, Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, known as King of Kings, also followed his father and bestowed upon Iranian women absolute rights, including the right to vote.
Once the modern dynasty was forced to leave Iran by the will of Western powers, the destiny of Persian women went back to the dark ages. Once the Islamic invasion of 1979 occurred and Ayatollah Khomeini was installed by Jimmy Carter, the Islamic Republic of Iran was established. Iranian women’s freedom was taken away while they were forced to wear the Islamic veil while they were segregated by gender.
When I read, or talk about history, it is always with a grain of salt. I know that I was not present 2500 years ago to witness Cyrus the Great’s accomplishments. I must rely on the Greeks, or the Jews documents to make some sense out of it. However, this time around, I was there and I saw it all with my own eyes. So, there isn’t any misconception.
In Western media, I frequently and erroneously read that the Ayatollah Khomeini ousted Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in an Islamic revolution.
Well, nothing could be further from the truth. The former Shah of Iran could have eliminated Khomeini in less than a second had he chosen to. But, he didn’t. Why? For a verity of reasons. One of which, he loved his country and wanted to avoid more bloodshed. No, this Quran trained, Shi’a cleric, who could barely speak Persian, never ousted the King of kings. This illiterate Islamic Shi’a was installed by foreign powers and notably, Jimmy Carter for the sole purpose of their own benefit, mostly for oil.
So, next time you see or use your pen in describing how one of Iran’s greatest and most powerful Persian patriots left his beloved country on his own, never assume he was kicked out by an old Shi’a cleric. The Shah of Iran voluntarily decided to leave his country just because he wanted to save the lives of those people who not only backstabbed him, but they had plans to purge pre-Islamic heritage and turn Iran into a 7th century Arab looking state. History must always be as accurate as passible, especially the recent ones.
OK, let’s return to another historic event that is currently taking place in Iran, under the noses of the Mullahs.
During the time I lived in Iran, most Iranians were not religious, but they had to pretend they were. Iranians for the past 1400 years have been pretending to be Muslim, when in fact, they weren’t. They could not read the Quran in Arabic. And even if they did, they could not understand a word of it or its interpretation. Iranians were completely into Persian celebration and festivities. Anything related to Islam meant absolutely nothing to them. So again, they pretended that they understood Islam and they were very much Muslim.
Who could blame them? They were living in a Muslim country with some devout Muslim relatives and some neighbors who also pretended they were devout Muslims. The reality was, no one had the slightest idea what Islam was all about. I say this because I witnessed it. Every single vision they had about Islam was created out of their own goodness. That’s why they still blame the mullahs for destroying their peaceful and beautiful Islam they relatively enjoyed during the Shah.
During the reign of the Shah of Iran, most Iranians truly believed Islam was a very peaceful and the perfect book of Quran was sent by God. Meanwhile, they did not know a word of it. It was all based on a figment of their imagination. If you were a good and honest person, then Islam you believed in was a reflection of yourself. Iranians were also told that Muhammad was the last in the line of prophets, beginning with Adam, and including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, and Jesus. And Muhammad’s book, the Quran is the complete compilation of the revelation of Allah to Muhammad. Many ordinary Iranians believed it, but they never read it or understood it. They mostly riled on their slave holds to interpret it, the Mullahs.
All these lies and deception continued until the arrival and invasion of real Islam by the Ayatollah Khomeini. Only then Iranians, not only saw it, but witnessed what real Islam looked like. Most Iranians began having a difficult time believing the violent Islam under Khomeini was the true Islam, not the peaceful version under the Shah. They became frustrated and disappointed overnight, and entered the phase of confusion. Most people perhaps don’t realize that 1400 years of non-stop Islamic indoctrination cannot evaporate overnight.
After forty years of non-stop Islamic propaganda, force prayers, and massive indoctrination, a great number of Iranians have completely abandoned Islam for good. It backfired on the Mullahs. The mullahs could not have even envisioned how quietly Iranians left Islam by the thousands. Not only that, Christianity has become the fastest growing religion in Iran.
Again, facts are facts. Iranians devoid of spirituality, found Christianity, not only a religion of peace, but something close to their hearts. Iran is changing faster than we all can imagine.
