Going for the gun
From Nehzate Azadi to Mohajedin Khalq

May 2001
The Iranian

Lotfollah Meisami was a Jebhe Melli (National Front) and Nehzate Azadi (Freedom Movement) activist before joining the Mojahedin Khalq Organization. In 1974 a bomb he was making exploded, leaving him blind and without his left hand.

A political prisoner before and after the 1979 revolution, Meisami has renounced violence and condemns Mojahedin Khalgh's tactics, although he has remained a vocal critic of the Islamic Republic. He currently publishes a magazine, Cheshmandaze Iran.

His memoir, "Az nehzate aazaadi taa mojaahedin (Vol. 1)", traces the transformation of the opposition against the Shah after the 1953 coup.
