In this video remarks by Dr. Maleki
A funeral service was held for Mrs. Jannatpour on Saturday December 5 in Tehran. Dr. Mohammad Maleki, the first post-revolution Chancellor of Tehran University, spoke at the event and praised the late Mrs. Jannatpour for her support of the MEK.
Below are excerpts of Dr. Maleki's remarks:
Mrs. Homa Dashti, mother of martyred Mojaheds Hood and Fariba Dashti, passed away on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, at the age of 79.
Mrs. Dashti always supported the opposition PMOI movement since the mullahs took power in Iran and aided her combatant children in all stages of struggle against this regime.
Her son Hood Dashti was executed in February 1981 and her daughter Fariba Dashti was executed during the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988.
Mrs. Dashti also lost two of her nephews, her niece and her son-in-law under the clerical regime. She was arrested and imprisoned several times but never gave in to the intimidations and harassments by the regime and was always supportive of the movement.
The Iranian Resistance's President-elect,extended her condolences on Mrs. Dashti's demise and described her as an example of resistance of Iranian mothers in standing up to the ruling religious tyranny.
Mrs. Jannatpoor was an opponent of the Shah and mullahs' dictatorship in Iran for more than four
Her son was a political prisoner under the Shah's regime and her three children are presently in Camp Liberty.
She was a courageous woman who actively supported the main Iranian opposition force, the PMOI, and on many occasions put her own life on line to protect the lives of its members and cover up for them. And she did not ever hesitate to be arrested and imprisoned for doing so. She was arrested and imprisoned a number of times for aiding the PMOI in their struggle for Iran's freedom.
Mrs. Jannatpoor did whatever she could to the last moment of her life to support the movement and the regime's constant intimidation's and threats could not break her resolve.
In a message on the demise of Mrs. Jannatpoor, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi said her faith and steadfastness in struggle against the ruling mullahs will always remain in the memory of her nation and Iranian women and girls will follow in her footsteps. Courageous women like her, who struggle against the mullahs’ religious fascism despite numerous restrictions, are the pride and honor of the people of Iran and especially Iranian women.
