Asnadi az Shekaste Shodan-e Namous-e Enqelab (Evidence of Dishonoring the Revolution: Examining the last years of Ayatollah Shari’atmadari’s life)


Book (Monograph)

Ayatollah Seyyed Kazim Shari’atmadari (1284-1365/1905-1986) was one of the most prestigious Shi’i Marja’s. After issuing his critical statements against the mandates of the Supreme Leader at the dawn of the referendum about the constitution of the Islamic Republic in December 1979, he was banished from the country’s public forum. He was put under house arrest for the rest of his life based on accusations of his knowledge of Sadegh Ghotbzadeh’s coup d’etat of 16 April 1982 and his reputation continued to be attacked by media, Friday Prayer tribunes, and the Islamic Parliament, without granting him the right to defend himself. Even his death, which was a result of his delayed transportation to the hospital, did not put an end to the accusations.
