Beating the hezbullahi supporters in 1979
They had divided the central zone into four districts. The leader of each district had one or two semi-military teams under his control. The task of the team was to seek hezbullahis and beat them. They were ordered to beat these individuals to death, and not to worry if they died. Another of their task was to commit acts of molestation, namely pouring glue in the locks of shops belonging to the hezbullahis and red paint on their cars.
Disrupting public gatherings in 1979, in the month of Ramazan:
If you remember, some of the authorities who were aware of the hypocrites' nature had arranged public gatherings in mosques and public centers to expose the Organization. This frightened the latter which directed its forces, including students, to plan and organize themselves to attend these meetings so as to cause disruption there. Examples are the clashes in Assadeq University, Saeed Abu Mosque, Tehran Mahdiyeh etc. You see that those who considered themselves heralds of awareness and liberation were in fact heralds of ignorance and violence.
You now see who originally started this policy of clashes and club bearing. They lie in the directives given by hypocrites behind the scene and implemented by us. These gentlemen, with all their appearance of innocence, have their hands smeared up to the elbows with the bloodshed in club swinging clashes.
If today someone thinks that the Organization was placed in a fix and armed combat was imposed on it, or that the Islamic Republic government robbed people of all freedom and repressed all political activities, it would be a shortsighted thought. To clarify the matter, I refer to two points and conclude this part of the discussion.
You know that the explanations which the hypocrites gave in connection with the sovereignty of this regime were all found to be untrue. Their only analysis which was true was the question of club-bearing. Do you know why this was so? Well, because the hypocrites knew in what direction they should give guidance, and so their analysis was right.
If you remember, traitor Rajavi, who has taken refuge in the arms of the imperialists, subsequent to his crimes and has shed the blood of this nation with the support of his masters, proposed to the Ministry of Interior to uproot club-bearing in society. This proposal encouraged the forces to brag about the power of the Organization in uprooting club-bearing in society. But how could Rajavi uproot club-bearing?
The parameters which could deal with this matter were firstly, the Organization itself; secondly the people, and thirdly, the government and the regime of the Islamic Republic. Which of the factors could the Organization change? They could not change the people. The authorities, too, had been deprived of power. They said, «Hand over the power to us to do what we want, and we will not resort to force to make even one nose bleed.»
Which factor then remains to be changed to uproot club- bearing? Was it so easy for the Organization to withdraw itself at will from club- bearing and abandon its threat of chaos, and thereby put an end to club- bearing? Now it is you who should answer this question as to who is a club- bearer and who is anti- people. It is the people who can judge. It was subsequent to these disorders and clashes that we come to June 20th.
The conclusions that we can draw from these facts are that firstly, the hypocrites, taking advantage of existing social conditions, like the total freedom of action, had a free hand to do whatever they liked. Secondly, in view of their discordant and deceitful nature, they forcefully tried to impose their will upon society. At the same time, they totally ignored actual facts and used hypocritical means to propagate their views to society. To clarify the points still more, we give an example. They used slogans supporting unity and solidarity but secretly they joined hands with Bani-Sadr, gave him directives and promoted differences.
Feigning innocence, they said that they never supported the club- bearers and were beaten by them. But careful examination will reveal that they themselves were at the root of all these acts and clashes. This part of my talk was related to the time before June 20, and you saw how they wanted to impose their conditions on society by those methods and tactics.
