Irdc.ir: The media reports the death of Abul Hassan Bani Sadr; The first president of Iran after the victory of the revolution, whose fate was to be removed from the presidency and to flee the country. He created many tensions during his presidency, and with the cooperation of the hypocrites, he was involved in the assassination of prominent figures of the Islamic Republic in the 1980s. Although the history of public and open communication between Bani Sadr and the People’s Mojahedin Organization dates back to mid-March 1981, the cooperation of these two currents became more public in the following years. The first stage of this cooperation was the military equipping of the Mojahedin Organization with the help of the then president.


Equipping the hypocrites by Bani Sadr

Shortly before the announcement of the armed struggle against the regime by the hypocrites, Bani Sadr met with Massoud Rajavi, the leader of the hypocrites. The deceased Hojjatoleslam and Muslims Hashemi Rafsanjani, referring to one of these meetings, writes in her memoirs on Tuesday, May 5, 1981: " It was reported that on Sunday, Mr. Bani-Sadr met with Massoud Rajavi for two hours at his sister's house. The cooperation of the President with the leaders of the group that are seeking an armed struggle against the Republic and are wanted by the authorities is strange and intolerable. While the Imam has said he must engage with them. "

After Bani-Sadr was removed from the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces by the order of Imam Khomeini on June 10, 1981, the hypocrites issued announcements of their support for Bani-Sadr and demanded the protection of the life of the President. It was stated in part of this announcement: "People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran with a decisive revolutionary warning against any malice toward the life of the President, demanded from all the heroic people of Iran to be ready and constantly present in the scenes and to continue the resistance. It is considered a revolution throughout the country. This organization also issued a threatening statement in the days when the issue of Bani-Sadr's political adequacy was raised in parliament, warning lawmakers about the consequences of Bani-Sadr's ouster. "The People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran warns all members of parliament of all the far-reaching consequences of the ousting of the President in this prevailing hysterical reactionary atmosphere."

The missing link in the assassinations of the 1980s is Abolhassan Bani Sadr, whose evidence suggests that he was also involved in the assassinations of the 1980s. In order to understand the role of Bani Sadr in the assassinations of the summer of 1980, we follow the course of events from the end of June of that year.


Management of the June 21 massacre by Bani Sadr's relatives

The military and terrorist cooperation between Bani Sadr and the hypocritical organization began in late June 1980. "On June 20, just two days after the publication of the political-military statement No. 25 of the Mojahedin Organization, and on the very day when the Islamic Consultative Assembly was considering the political inadequacy plan of Bani Sadr, on June 21, 1980, the Organization of the Hypocrites, whose members were equipped with hot weapons and cold weapons, launched a riot in the city of Tehran, during which several ordinary people and a number of members of the Revolutionary Guards were martyred and more than a hundred others were wounded. " Jomhuri Eslami newspaper. The support of Bani-Sadr and the hypocrites in killing people was not hidden from Imam Khomeini, and he asked Bani-Sadr to clarify his position in a speech on June 22nd.


Bani-Sadr's role in the explosion of the Republican Party and the Prime Minister's Office

After the vote of the parliament on the political incompetence of Bani Sadr, he went into hiding, and in this hiding place, while contacting the leaders of the hypocrites, the final decisions were made about the assassination of the leaders of the regime. Bani Sadr had explicitly stated that "if we cannot mobilize the people, the system must be paralyzed and the leaders must be destroyed."

Hassan Ghafouri-Fard also refers to the role of Bani Sadr in the assassinations of the 80s: "I am sure that Bani Sadr was the mastermind of the explosions and assassinations on June 27 [bombing in Abu Dharr Mosque and the assassination of Ayatollah Khamenei], June 28 [bombing of the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party and the martyrdom of Ayatollah Beheshti and 72 companions of the Imam] and August 30 [bombing of the Prime Minister And the martyrdom of Mohammad Javad Bahonar and Mohammad Ali Rajaei]…. Bani Sadr joined with the hypocrites and committed those crimes." He continues: "I heard from a reliable source that Bani Sadr had said:" I will finally kill Mr. Beheshti and Mr. Rafsanjani and ... ".

"I can’t mention that source, but I am pretty sure that Bani Sadr had such a view of these people and he was seeking to physically remove them."

According to Ali Mohammad Besharati, the assassination of Martyr Hassan Ayat on August 5, 1981 was also carried out by the order of Bani Sadr and by the hypocrites. "I heard that the plot to assassinate [Martyr Ayat] had been prepared in Bani Sadr's office, and that most of those who were preparing his assassination were insiders, that is, those who did not accept his existence," he said.

In addition to this evidence, by examining the words of the leader of the group of hypocrites, one can understand the role of Bani Sadr in the assassinations of 1980; Massoud Rajavi explicitly states that "Mr. Bani-Sadr remembers very well that at that time, he was determined to kill Rafsanjani and insisted on it."

Thus, it can be said with certainty that Bani Sadr, by emphasizing the assassination of high-ranking officials of the regime, accompanied the hypocrites in assassinating the leaders of the regime.

It is also important to note that Bani Sadr and Massoud Rajavi fled Iran together in one day. The escape plan was certainly not designed overnight, and its design required prior communication.

All of the above indicate that Abul Hassan Bani Sadr, in addition to being involved in equipping the hypocrites, was also involved in the assassinations of 1981, especially the explosion of the Republican Party and the explosion of the Prime Minister's Office, which led to the martyrdom of Ayatollah Shahid Beheshti, Bahonar and Raja'i.
