The India branch of the National Movement of the Iranian Resistance (NAMIR) Saturday held a solidarity meeting here to protest against the “rule of anarchy in Iran” on the occasion of 38th anniversary of Iranian revolution of February 11, 1979. In a press release issued by Bezad Amiri (65), resident of Pune and the in-charge of NAMIR’s India branch, it is stated that, “On February 11, 2017, NAMIR marks the continuing of despotic rule of Mullahs initiated by late Ayatullah Khomeini. On this day, the freedom movement of Iranian people, which led to a national government, was misled due to a sinister internal plot with the help of foreign agencies.”
