Fat’hi-Dokht joined the anti-Shah rallies in 1979 when the protests erupted across the country. After the unprecedented 1979 Islamic Revolution led by Imam Khomeini, Fat’hi-Dokht along with his friends formed a resistance movement. There, they encouraged young people to study authentic books in addition to military training.
Being a passionate follower of Willaya, Fat’hi-Dokht was very fond of Imam Khomeini. He had repeatedly threatened by MKO group on account of his resistance against the abominable crimes of the group. Even though he had been threatened and harassed by the MKO, he did not withdraw his support from the fledgling Islamic Revolution.
