Iran 1951 and India 2022 : Similarities

By -

I studied Persian language in NDA & followed it up with an advanced Diploma from School of Foreign Languages. Also indulged in study of Persian Affairs and Area Studies. 

So I was naturally interested when I came across a write up about Iran.
This is essentially a nationalistic writing, but makes an interesting read! 

*Iran 1951 and India 2022 : The similarities*


Since Iran exports a huge amount of oil to India, whenever the Iran-US conflict escalates, it affects India as well, so our media shows a lot of news about it.

Have you ever wondered "Why Iranians call America "The Devil's Land"?

The British had historically dominated Iran's oil production, with 84% share of Iran's oil production going to England and only 16% to Iran.

The Emperor of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, was a corrupt man (अय्याश), so he didn't care! 
Iran had a constitutional monarchy, also had elections, Parliament.

In 1951, Mohammed Mossadegh, a staunch patriot, became Prime Minister. 

He did not like the dominance of foreign companies in Iran's oil production and trade.

On March 15, 1951, he presented a Bill for the nationalization of Iran's oil industry in Parliament, which was passed by majority. 

After this Bill was passed, Iranians began to dream of happiness, that now their poverty would be removed! 

Times magazine called Mossadegh "Man of the year" in 1951! 

But due to these developments, the British lost a lot! The British started many small and big attempts to remove Mossadegh, tried to bribe Mossadegh, tried to assassinate Mossadegh, attempted a military coup, but because Mossadegh was very experienced and intelligent, the British assassination, bribery plots failed and Mossadegh was very popular among the Iranian people. 

With a popular PM, military coup was not possible.

Finally the British asked for help from Americans.

America's CIA approved a $1 million fund to remove Mossadegh. Then one million US dollars equalled 4250 crore Rials (Iranian currency)! 

The funds were sent to the American Ambassador in Tehran (the capital of Iran).

 Mossadegh wanted to completely end the monarchy in Iran and give all the power to Parliament, so the Emperor of Iran was also on the side of England and Americans. 

Their plan was to create discontent against Mossadegh and remove popular support from him, then overthrow his Government with the help of corrupt Parliamentarians.

A large number of Iranian journalists, editors, Muslim clerics were paid 631 crore Riyals by the US and those journalists, editors and Muslim clerics had only one thing to do in return, which was to incite the people against Mossadegh.

 Members of the Iranian Parliament were paid 46 million Rials each to spread propaganda about Mossadegh's work.

 Thousands of Iranians were paid to participate in the false protests.

Then started marches on the Parliament. 

Big media around the world also started supporting American propaganda. Mossadegh began to be referred to as "the Dictator" in "The New York Times". 

"Times" magazine called Mossadegh's choice dangerous. 

Opposition to Mossadegh began at a very low level, with cartoons depicting him as gay.

Realizing that his Government was about to be overthrown by corrupt MPs, Mossadegh dissolved the Parliament, and finally the US forced the Iranian Emperor to remove Mossadegh from his post as Prime Minister. (Since Mossadegh had the authority to accept or reject the order, the Shah decided to arrest him if he refused the order!)

But Mossadegh's soldiers arrested the Army unit that had come to arrest him, and upon learning this, the Shah of Iran fled to Baghdad! 

Finally, by paying a bribe of 210 million Rials, the US instigated fake riots in the capital of Iran, with mercenaries on the sides.

Rioters attacked Mossadegh's house, Mossadegh was forced to flee, (military helped in overthrow of Govt), a puppet was made the Prime Minister, citing the old order of the Emperor.

After the Emperor returned to Iran, Mossadegh surrendered, was put on trial, imprisoned, and then held under house arrest until his death. (Mossadegh died in custody at the age of 85.)

After that Americans and British started taking of share of 40% - 40% of Iranian oil and the remaining 20% was given to other European companies.

For decades the Iranian people had to live under the dictatorship of the Shah, a revolution ended the Monarchy but then the fanatical Khomeini came to power and made the lives of Iranian people even worse.

*What was Mossadegh's crime ?* 
His idea that economic sectors of our country should be dominated by indigenous companies instead of foreign companies. This policy was his crime..? Under Mossadegh's leadership, Iran would have become a fully democratic country before 1955, and 100% of the oil production would have benefited Iran. 

The decades of torture inflicted on the Iranian people would not have happened.

With a strong democracy and a Government that favors indigenous companies, Iran would probably be a more prosperous country than Saudi Arabia today. But Iran's corrupt parliamentarians, journalists, editors, protestors sold Iran's rich future for just one million dollars.

During this period of oppression, the Iranian people began to realize that America had a hand in overthrowing Mossadegh's Government. 

In 1979, the Iranians detained Americans in the US embassy for 444 days, and 77 volumes of documents the Iranians found in the embassy were released. In which there was evidence of  American hand and how they helped the oppressive puppets in Iran.

That's why Iranians call America, *"Satan's Country"*! 

Mossadegh could not complete the policy of breaking the dominance of foreign companies and promoting indigenous companies, he made enemies with the two superpowers of the world. In the end he had an unfortunate end, as in Bollywood films the hero doesn't win every time.

Finally, who were the real villain for Iran..? Journalists, editors, MPs, activists who had been sold to America! 

Had these people not been sold, the Iranian people would have stood behind Mossadegh, America would not have succeeded like England. But for few dollars, the patriotic leader of Iran was called "Kumshah" and soon the whole country was ruined! 

Our country 'India' is also on the same path today. 

It is a great misfortune that the common citizens do not notice the ongoing conspiracies, unless they suffer endless atrocities.

 It is wise to be alert in time and not fall prey to this very corrupt media propaganda, trust our patriotic present Indian leadership and stand firmly behind it.

Otherwise a disaster like Iran is inevitable....and this is why intelligence agencies of big capitalist countries are working day and night. These intelligence agencies are making many politicians of India work as their agents and there are also some journalists, urban naxals, pseudo liberals and NGOs working with the aim of selling the country for dirty money. 

*It is no longer a secret that a campaign for regime change in India has been launched by foreign agencies*

It is said that our destiny is in our own hands, we just need to understand it properly.

Jai Hind 🇮🇳 🚩
