Seyed Mohsen Mousavinejad was born on March 24, 1961 in Zanjan. He had finished his high school and obtained a diploma’s degree in construction. He was distinguished among his friends by his great attitude towards other people. As he was born in a religious family, since he was only 10 years old, Mohsen was committed to observing his religious duties and most of the time he used to participate in Friday prayers.

He never neglected the Islamic laws and he was always distinguished by his moral behavior towards his friends and relatives. During his education time, he used to go to school every evening. Despite he spent his mornings working, he was one of the top students in school. He continued his studies in a technical school and spent his last year in a high school in Tehran. Before he was martyred, he had successfully passed the entrance exam of the university. He didn’t have much free time and even if he had some, he would spend his free time in mosque or reading books.

Interested in the Islamic Revolution, He joined the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and quickly became an active member of the IRGC. Terrorist groups such as the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK, NCRI, …) were also active at that time and assassinated many religious and military figures to harm the Islamic Revolution. Despite he was aware of the dangers in the path he had chose and knew he would be martyred, Seyed Mohsen stepped into the middle of the war against terrorists and foreign enemies. He served at Sistan and Baluchestan province for one year and then he was transferred back to Zanjan. As he was an expert in designing and construction, he was dispatched to various sites in different cities to implement the designs.

He was very much interested in Imam Khomeini and was committed to obeying the Welayat e- Faqih. He used to encourage his neighborhood’s teenagers to learn and memorize the holy Quran with the help from his friends Hossein Sadeghi and Iraj Sattarian who were also martyred later.

Finally on August 30, 1981, Seyyed Mohsen was shot and martyred by MKO terrorists while he was riding a bike along with his brother.
