Shah's return in 1953

Letter to The New York Times

Your April 16 front-page article ''How a Plot Convulsed Iran in '53 (and in '79)'' makes unjust remarks about my late husband, Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi. It also gives a partial account of the events of 1953.

My husband at first supported Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh in the fight for the nationalization of Iran 's oil industry. Only when the shah was convinced that political and economic deterioration was threatening Iran 's independence and stability did he feel constitutionally obligated to dismiss Dr. Mossadegh.

The shah returned to Iran because of the will of the majority of Iranians. During the rest of his reign, he played a pivotal role in promoting regional and world peace. His service to Iran will never be forgotten.

Let us hope that impartial historians will write the truth about these events. Today, rather than allowing ourselves to be divided by old wounds, we Iranians should unite to support our compatriots in their legitimate struggle for freedom.

Iran will rise from its ashes.
