And Dr Hassan Ayat the Majlis deputy and the secretary of the IRP Polite Bureaux was martyred.
At 8 AM Wednesday 14 of Amordad 1360 the voice of the IRI broadcasted this shocking news , " Hassan Ayat Majlis deputy from Tehran was martyred to day morning in front of his house . that day afternoon the news papers wrote that the anti revolutionaries fired more than 60 bullets to Dr Hassan Ayat .
In order to understand why he was terrored we must know what has been his function in the revolution . Without any doubts his most effective effect has been in his involvement in the ratification of the principle of Velayat Faghih in the constitution.
The story is as follows: a little while before the victory of the revolution , Hassan Habibi one of the members of the national front prepared the primary draft of the constitution on Imam's demand . The constitution draft which lacked the Velayat Faghih principle was approved by Imam and then the revolution council after its provision.
Despite this having in mind what had come in the prim minister ordinance of Mohandas Bazargan, the provisional government and the forces supporting her , supported the establishment of the constitutional assembly for the reformation of the constitution draft , but based on the proposal of Ayatullah Taleghani and Imam's approval The constitution's expert assembly was established in order to compile the constitution . The assembly that Hassan Ayat was a member of her presidency board , he had a key role in submitting the principle of Velayat Faghih as an amendment to the Iranian constitution . This same fact cultivated the hatred for Ayat in the heart of those who opposed the principle of Velayat Faghih the most important of whom were the Mojahedeen Khalgh . This hatred of Mojahedeen was so intense that they could not tolerate him and in continuation of their deadly terrors in the summer of 1360 they opened fire on him mercilessly .
