He deeply believed in Islam and was committed to observing the Islamic law and rules.
As he believed the root of all the hardship Iranians were facing was the Shah and his regime, he raised against the Pahlavi regime’s tyranny alongside other people when the Iranian Islamic Revolution started. He was very active in anti-Pahlavi rallies and protests.
Zare always kept himself updated with the latest Imam Khomeini’s announcements and used to educate others about the true nature of Pahlavi regime.
After the revolution, he dedicated himself to his job as a bank clerk. Farrokhzad Zare was on his way to work when he was shot by the rioters on January 26, 1982. Twenty four hours later, he was martyred of his injuries.
