Violent terrorists have been always against any democratic processes. During the August 1979 elections in Iran, members of Fadaiyan-e Khalq Guerrillas resorted to violence and attacked the polling stations. A news published on August 6, 1979, in Jomhouri Eslamic Daily reads:
A group of Fadaiyan-e Khalq Guerrillas’ advocates staged a rally to seize the ballot boxes. The rally turned violent and the protesters attacked innocent civilians, injuring several people. They stormed the office of the district governor and broke windows. Protesters injured 3 others, including the district governor, injuring his face. A group of the protesters in a car threatened people on the street at gunpoint.
