Manouchehr Qolinejad was born in 1962 in Amol. His father took him to religious sessions since the early years in his childhood and so he loved Islam and Quran very much.

He finished his second year in Secondary school when he had to leave school for work. Before the Revolution, Manouchehr used to participate in rallies against the Shah regime and showed much respect towards Imam Khomeini. After the Islamic Revolution, he started cooperating with revolutionary entities. Manouchehr Qolinejad used to work during the day and at nights, he patrolled and guarded the city.

It was a Tuesday night when Manouchehr and his friends said their last prayers and it was like they were all asking God to grant them martyrdom. After their prayers, they heard some gunshots on their way to work so they went there and found some Jungle rioters. The armed rioter slapped Ja’afar Hendoui, one of Manouchehr’s friends and martyr Qolinejad and his friends started fighting them back with empty hands. They were all martyred that night brutally by the jungle rioters.
