Mohsen Mandegari on the assassins of Saeed Hajjan

On the occasion of Seshanbeh-Souri: "Editorial to Entekhab daily
By Mohsen Mandegari

…Although the identities of the assassins of Saeed Hajjarian have not yet been identified, it can be assumed that even if this unmanly assassination was carried out by rogue elements from the inside it exactly serves the interests of external terrorist groups—such as the Monafeqin Organization—as well as Zionist circles, for even the opponents of reforms well know that the elimination of Hajjarian from the political arena not only does not slow down the reforms, but will lead to an increase in the level of demands in an uncontrollable way and intensify the reforms project, which will eventually result in weakening national security and the growth of violence and insecurity.

Also, some believe that after the Majlis elections, Hajjarian was planning a “calendar of reforms” in order to modify public demands…Undoubtedly, the assassins of Hajjarian were trying to deprive him of this opportunity and distract a reasonable trend of reforms. Recent warnings by the supreme leader and the president about the enemies targeting national solidarity can be inspiring for political groups and those who are attached to the revolution."
