Parviz Mohebbi was born in Masal County in Gilan province into a religious Muslim family. He spent his early school years in his hometown and went to Martyr Motahhari High School for his first three years of high school. After that he went to Tehran to further his studies in leading high schools in Tehran. Though he did not need money, he spent his summer holidays working in order to avoid wasting time.
Mohebbi sat for the Iranian university entrance examinations (Concour) and managed to enter the University of Shiraz to study medical technology. From the very beginning of his presence in the Shiraz University, Mohebbi joined the Muslim students who were engaged in underground activities against the US-backed Shah of Iran due to his strong religious beliefs.
Mohebbi's great interest in Ayatollah Dastgheib led him to take part in his religious speeches and to read his books. He used to bring Ayatollah Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah Dastgheib’s (tape-recorded) messages to his hometown, and distributing copies of them.
Being one of the elements of street protests and attacks on nightclubs and liquor stores in Shiraz, Mohebbi partook in the rallies in Shiraz when the anti-Shah protests spread all over Iranian cities.
After the victory of Islamic Revolution in 1979, Parviz contributed to the enlightening of newly admitted students and warned them against the dangers of deceptive groups.
He came back to his hometown to work in revolutionary institutions, such as Construction Jihad (Jihad-e Sazandegi), Imam Khomeini Relief Committee, and the Iranian Housing Foundation. Simultaneously, he established the Masal Basij and Iranian Revolutionary Guards in forest area. He himself commanded the IRGC’s Masal, Shanderman, and Pare Sar Corps. He also made great efforts in the development of housing for the poor and school building and bringing comfort and safety to the region.
One of the reasons there have been so many attempts on his life by MKO and other anti-revolutionary and anti-Islam groups was his important role in the awareness of many people of the region on the anti-revolutionary groups.
When he was returning from his final mission in Tehran in October 10, 1981, Parviz Mohebbi was assassinated by terrorists.
