Irdc.ir: From the second half of 1978, the need for cohesive groups and organizations to lead and organize the revolution and the formation of the Islamic system was felt more than ever. For this reason, Martyr Morteza Motahari, Martyr Haj Mehdi Iraqi and Jalaluddin Farsi informed Imam Khomeini's views on the need for coalition and unity to Muslim militant groups inside the country. In the meantime, seven militant groups, which later worked together in a committee to welcome Imam Khomeini came together to form an organization to defend the fledgling Islamic Republic. An organization called the "Mujahedin of the Islamic Revolution." Mohsen Rezaei says in this regard: ((In order to stand against the hypocrites (People's Mojahedin Organization), we also named ourselves 'Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization '.The hypocrites immediately took a stand and said that they stole the word 'Mujahedin' from us.))
The primary goals of establishing the Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization
Statement No. 2 of the Organization stated the goals and necessity of its formation that: "The experiences of the movements of the last century teach us that one of the reasons for their failure was the lack of a coherent organization based on Islamic ideology that could maintain the continuity of the revolution against the many and colorful conspiracies of Nakithun,Mariqun,Qasitun, We,the Groups of a single Ummah, monotheism Badr , monotheism Saf, Fallah, Falaq, Mansourun and Movahedin, based on ideological-strategic unity, with the help of God and in the hope of his guidance, have formed the Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization,the purpose of which is to protect, continue and spread the Islamic Revolution in all its dimensions to the global destination and for the development of the individual and society".
How the coalition was formed?
Joint meetings were held after the initial agreement of the 7 groups to try to form a coalition organization. In these meetings, the common principles agreed upon by the groups, the goals of the organization, the logo and creed, etc. were discussed. With the formation of the Coordinating Council of the organization, the decision on the remaining issues was left to it. There was one representative from each group on the council, and decisions were made in a consultative manner. Mohammad Salamati from Ummah Vahid, Mohammad Baqir Zolghadr from Mansourun, Morteza Al-Weeri from Fallah, Mahmoud Bakhshandeh from Movahedin, Hassan Vaezi from Falaq, Ali Asgari (sometimes Hossein Fadai) from Badr and Hossein Sadeghi (sometimes Mohammad Boroujerdi) from the ranks, were the members of the council. And Mohammad Salamati was the secretary of the Coordinating Council.
Description of the name and logo of the organization
One of the symbols and characteristics that can represent the ideology and goals of an organization and group is its name and logo. Aware of this, the septet groups identified the name of the organization and the logo of the organization. The explanation given in this regard in Statement No. 2 of the Organization (1979-4-5) is as follows:
A. The word" organization "is a general word and indicates the type of our activities.
B- The word "Mujahedin" is also a common Qur'anic word and includes all those who jihad in the way of God in any way. This word has always been used as a general Islamic word throughout the history of the struggles of the Muslim peoples of the world, for example, "Constitutional Mujahedin", "Jungle Mujahedin", "Algerian Mujahedin" and so on.
We see that what characterizes each of these, is the words or phrases after the word of Mojahedin, Such as "constitutionalist", "forest" or "Islamic revolution".
C- Even during the recent Islamic Revolution, the words "Mujahid" and "Mujahedin" are commonly used by the people and according to this, tens of thousands of martyrs of the Islamic Revolution are considered "Mujahedin".
D-"Our main reliance is on the 'Islamic Revolution', which is now the only phenomenon for the salvation and development of mankind."
Following this statement it was said about the logo of the organization that: "The whole sign of the organization is formed of a 'La', one side of which is an arrow that goes around the earth with the slogan 'La ilaha illa Allah' and is moving and eager towards the absolute of all values." The other part of the logo itself consists of a "la" which is designed in the form of a pen and in the direction of which the Mujahideen's clenched fist raises a machine gun, and all this pen, la and the armed fist on top of each other, rely on La ilaha illa Allah.
Announcing the existence and announcing the positions of the organization
Finally, after several meetings, the organization issued statements announcing its existence in April 1979 and asked the nation to participate in the gathering to announce the organization's positions (Thursday, April 5, 1979, which was coincided with the anniversary of the uprising of Sheikh Mohammad Khayabani) at the University of Tehran.
Mohammad Salamati talks about the type of activity of the organization at that time:" the Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization was operating in a semi-secret and semi-public manner, because at the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, the supporters of the Revolution did not hope that the Revolution would easily survive and continue its work. "Therefore, part of the activities was carried out in a semi-secret way so that its elements would not be identified and the structures that had been prepared could easily operate in critical situations and special situations."
In mid-April 1958, the organization expressed its position on important issues such as the leadership of the revolution, the interim government, the elected organs of the Imam, the original revolutionary groups, the imperialists and their affiliates, the internal reaction, the hypocrites, the deviants and the Marxists.
(Statement No. 2) on leadership and Velayat-e-Faqih reads as follows: According to our interpretations of Islamic texts, we consider the position of a leader in the absence of Imam al-Asr (as) as the right of the Faqih (Islamic jurist) of the society. At this point in history, according to the above principle, we have considered Imam Khomeini worthy of the leadership, guardianship and deputyship of the Imam, and according to the clear text of the Qur'an:
''O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those vested with authority among you''
We consider all her fatwas necessary for the implementation of every individual and Muslim community, and we consider non-observance of this principle as a deviation from Islam. And the organization considers itself obliged to provide all its information and experiences to the Imam in every field, while serving all its power and facilities. The organization writes about confronting the hypocrites and deviant groups, especially the People's Mojahedin Organization:" We also consider hypocritical, deviant and opportunistic groups as false forces. And we believe in exposing and criticizing their deviant ideas And we try to guide those who have been deceived by them.
