Reza Shah the Great of Iran, Pahlavi I
Father of the Nation and Creator of the Modern Iran
Reza Khan was a true Republican, he wanted to establish a Republic in Iran and become the first president; however, the traditional combine institutes of the Persian Royal Courthouse, monarchists, Feudals and Shiite Mullahs saw their social classes benefits in danger and forced him to become a shah.
Reza Khan desired to be the first president of Iran and reform Iran. His desire was for the people to elect one worthy president after another and revive Iran. Reza Khan wanted a Secular Republic to cut off the hands of the Shiite Islam from the government. Deep inside, Reza Khan despised the corrupt institutes of monarchy, feudalism and religion.
The history would have been different and today’s Iran would have been heaven if Reza Khan had gotten his way! Unfortunately, the Monarchists, Mullahs and Feudals continued the tradition of dictatorship and eventually the Absolutist Monarchial Dictatorship gave birth to the Theocratic Shiite Dictatorship of the 1979. The Old Monarchist – Shiite Brotherhood tied Reza Khan’s hands and avoided the creation of the Democratic Republic of Iran; furthermore, they put Iran in a path of traditional tyranny which resulted in a Theocratic Dictatorship of IRI. Throughout the history of Iran, Monarchists and Mullahs have always gone hand in hand. Every time a true reformer wanted to develop a change, the Brotherhood of Monarchists and Mullahs have blocked it! If Reza Khan would have gotten his way, Iran’s destiny would have been different; Monarchy would seize to exist and IRI would have never been born!


You have been told enough lies from the left and from the right. Each has distorted this man's lifetime of achievements to propagate their own political ideology. Throughout the decades Muslims, Marxists and Monarchists, all have shoved their own distorted version of this man's life in to your minds. The "M" Ideologies also known as Monarchists, Mojaheds, Marxists, Mosadeqists and Muslims are world famous for distorting the history. What they preach is not history but propaganda! Each of these small cults had created their version of history about this man. The reality is that Iranians by majority do not belong to any of these cults. Iranians by majority are simple Nationalists. Iranians by majority are the same as you and I. I can see you sitting behind your monitor disappointed and disturbed about what has happened to our nation on 1979. I can see you sitting behind your monitor sick and tired of all of these "M" Ideologies and their followers. I can see you sitting behind your monitor seeking a way out to free our land and regain our Old Glory. I am speaking to you. Now is the time for truth!

Reasons for the Birth of IRI

Reza Shah the Great of Iran, Pahlavi I
Designer of the Modern Iran and one of the greatest Shahs in history of Iran

Yes my friends, Iranians by majority do not belong to any of these cults. Iranians by majority are simple folks and simple nationalists the same as you and I. Masses of Iran and the future generation demands the truth. At last they need to know the truth about this Iranian Icon, this great man, and the designer of the modern Iran.

L. The one who came with the Blues.
R. The one who left with the Greens.

Allow me to clearly state here that everything which you have read in the past about Reza Khan was either a lie or distortion of history. Each side had twisted the reality for the benefit of their own cult. You deserve better, you deserve the truth. Masses of Iran deserve to educate themselves to the true history of Iran written for the masses.

It is time to speak of the truth and the real history which you have never heard because it has been hidden from you; the history which has been hidden from you by the men with various political agendas. Why don't you sit back, relax, hand me your ears and let me tell you a story of Reza Khan, the real story? I am the History Teller. Let me tell you a story about a simple man who was the same as you and I. Let me tell you a story about a modest man who was nothing but a simple Nationalist and a lover of Iran.

The Reza Khani Look

The Efforts of A Legend

To the memory of our father, The Father of Nation, Reza Shah The Great.

Reza Khan used to wear his military outfit all the time. They used to ask him: "When will you take these old boots off?" He used to reply: "The day that I will take off these boots will be the day that Iran will become self-sufficient." Iran was Reza and Reza was Iran.

Reza Khan took over a broken, backward, destroyed, bankrupt, superstitious, religious, Islam infested and infected declined Empire which had lost all her landmass through a useless, hypocritical governing system and greed of Qajar Dynasty. After 16 (1925 - 1941) years he built the nation from the scratch, dragged Iran out of the dark ages and brought her the present of modern civilization. He started the basic steps and the reconstruction of the little Persian Kingdom so one day she would become a great industrial nation of Iran. Let's study deeper about what this legend had accomplished for our nation, and how he managed to do these efforts. Let's study about a Persian Legend, The Father of Nation, The Father of Modern Iran, Reza Shah The Great.

L. An older portrait of Reza Khan
R. A newer portrait of Reza Khan

After the reign of Aqa Mohammad Shah Qajar (1794 AD - 1797 AD) who was the last of great shahanshahs and the last Persian Emperor, due to worthlessness of his brother, Fath Ali Shah Qajar, the Persian Empire stated to decline. Despite the great efforts of Abbas Mirza (Commander in chief of the Persian Forces and Fath Ali Khan's son), our nation started to fall apart and many states of Iran became pieces of pies and new trophies for the Russian and the British Empires. While Aqa Mohamad Shah was alive, the British, Russians, Ottomans and other enemies of Iran, dared to make a move on Iran. Aqa Mohamad Shah was a fierce and firm powerful emperor; however, after his death, Iran was declared as the open season prey for the great empires to haunt, bite and cut off each piece of her body on annual basis! Aqa Mohamad Shah and Abbas Mirza were two great aces of the Qajar Dynasty, yet after them, Qajar Dynasty started to decline.

For more information on Aqa Mohamad Shah and Abbas Mirza Qajar, read:

First and Last Persian Emperors

Reza Khan was an uneducated man with very little schooling; however, he was one of the most intelligent, bright, secular and freethinking Iranians of all times. It is amazing that from such a great secular man descended Mohamad Reza and Reza Pahlavi II, both religious and both up to their necks in superstitions!

Monarchist School of Thought!

Monarchists expect Iranians to worship Pahlavis only because Reza Khan was a great individual! Great ingenuity of Reza Khan as an individual does not put the Iranian masses in debt to the Pahlavi's corrupted family! A logical and rational person (unlike monarchists) judges each individual according to his own actions and does not praise a whole dynasty due to efforts of one or two individuals! If we abide by monarchist school of thought, then we must worship the complete Qajar Dynasty only due to the great efforts of Aqa Mohamad Shah and Abbas Mirza! But in reality, the whole Qajar Dynasty's Shahs were mostly a tragic catastrophe except a few individuals. The same thing can be stated about Pahlavis.

Reza Khan, father of the nation, father of the modern Iran, rebuilt Iran from the scratch. Hereby we shall state some of the reforms, tasks, and achievements, which he had accomplished:

Achievements of Reza Shah The Great

1. He built Trans-Iranian Railroad to connect the cities of our nation from south to north and from east to west, only by taxing 2 Rials on Sugar and Ghand (sugar cubes). Therefore the nation would have develop its economy through a well-connected transportation system. Reza Khan always had this dream to build the North-South Iranian Railways but the national economy was a disaster and he did not want to ask for foreign loans. When there is a will, then there is a way. Finally he taxed Sugar and Sugar Cubes only 2 Rials and it took 11 years to build the system but at last the task was complete. Reza Khan managed to do this task without any foreign debt! This was short of a miracle! Reza Khan, was a great economist. On August 26, 1938, the Trans-Iranian Railroad started its operation. Unfortunately later on the Allies invaded Iran, forced Reza Shah out of power and in to exile and then used this Railroad to transfer military vehicles, weapons and other goods from the Persian Gulf to Russia. Allies named Iran, "The Bridge of Victory". Iranian Roadways and Railroads caused Allies to win the war!

2. On 1935 Reza Shah changed the name of the country from Pars or Persia to Iran, so the name of the land would cover and recognize all the races, ethnic groups, tribes, and minorities of Iran and not just mistakenly the Persians. Before this date the name of the country was Pars.

Cons: Many were against this move because Iran means land of Aryans and Reza Shah were at most in axis with The Axis Powers (Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Imperial Japan) or at least sympathized with them. They figured the term "Iran" is a racist word and one cannot change an ancient name (Pars) with thousands of years of history, all of a sudden to "Iran"!

Pros: Others were thrilled by this name change, because Pars (Persia) could give the wrong impression that the whole nation is being named after one state of Iran (Pars) or one ethnic group of Iran (Persians) and that would be racist. On the other hand Iran covers the whole nation and all the states.

3. He entered women into the workplaces and factories by taking the hejab and veil off of their faces and bodies. He freed the women, which were half of the Iranian population, and entered them in to the work force, so the nation could run its industrial machine with the full power by using all Iranian men and women.

4. He made a mandatory law for unveiling of the women, unturbaning and unrobing the clergy and men. The law of the land (taking veils off women's faces, and turbans and robes off men's heads and bodies) became very clear. Anyone who would not obey this law, his or her veil, turban and robe would had been cut off with scissors right on the intersections of the main streets of the large cities, by the police. This is how determined he was to enforce this law, and drag our people to the modern age. During Reza Khan's reign one could not appear with hejab, turbans, robes and even Kolah Namadi (traditional Iranian Beanie Hats) in the public. If violating this law, the police would humiliate them in public by tearing these outfits. Reza Khan replaced the above garments by modern hats and dresses for women and modern military style hat (Pahlavi Hat) and western suits for men. The Freedom of Women and the Mandatory Law for banning the Hejab kick started on January 7, 1936.

5. He built schools and universities such as the Tehran University and Reza Shah Kabir Academy. The first University in Iran was built on February 4, 1935 by his majesty, which was named the Tehran University. Reza Khan also built the Iranian Cultural Institute (Farhangestan-e Iran) on May 20, 1935.

6. He cut clerics' hands off the judicial and educational system of Iran.

7. He opened the doors of schools and universities to all women.

8. He built the first border to border roadways of Iran; The North-South Roadways of Iran were built by his majesty. He built avenues and streets all along inside the main cities, and well paved roads to connect important cities of Iran with one another. The North-South Roadways of Iran were built on October 29, 1928.

9. He built Dams over the rivers, electric and industrial factories, hospitals and clinics, and many other institutes. The very first factory built by Reza Khan was the Cement Factory of Loushan in Gilan. Creation of this factory was the birth of the industrial age of Iran. Since that day, Iran moved towards the speedy industrialization.

10. He sent many of our youth for the first time to Europe, so they would educate themselves, and by doing so, they could serve their nation.

11. He made the basic education (elementary and secondary) mandatory, public and free in Iran. Education was the only way that our nation could break free from the balls and chains of superstition and Religion.

12. As mentioned above, he started the industrialization age of Iran by building the Cement Factory of Loushan. As of now the cement industry is one of the top five industries of Iran. Let us not forget that Reza Khan started this industry. The official Industrialization Day of Iran is on December 30th, 1933 when Reza Khan and people celebrated the grand opening of the Cement Factory of Loushan in city of Loushan in Province of Gilan.

13. He built the modern Iranian Navy, the first modern Navy which Iran had since the glory days of Persian Imperial Navy during 5th BC Achaemenid's Grand Admiral Artemisia the first female high ranking officer in the world and later on 18th AD Safavids/Afsharids Navy. On May 1, 1931 the Iranian Navy had officially started its work to protect and secure the southern waters of Iran. Years later, the northern navy in Caspian Sea started its operation.

14. He built the Iranian Air Force from scratch, the complete Air Force system of Iran was his majesty's vision. The Iranian Air Force was built on June 1, 1924.

15. He built the Iranian modern Army. This force trained many worthy low and high-ranking officers. The official date for building the Iranian modern army is November 17, 1921.

16. Since the coup until February 16th, 1922, Reza Khan had successfully ended the separatist movements in Gilan, Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, Mazandaran and Khorasan. Reza Khan secured the unity and integrity of Iran.

17. Invention of the Red Lion and Sun Organization on July 27, 1923. This is a health and emergency organization similar to the Red Cross and Red Crescent.

18. Iran needed a steady and strong military, so on June 6, 1925, Reza Khan made the military draft mandatory.

19. Capitulation (Capitolasion) was a reactionary law, which disallowed Iranian courts to trial the foreign diplomats and citizens committing crimes in Iran. In other words foreigners could get away with any crimes in Iran! On April 26, 1927, Reza Khan banned the Capitulation Law.

20. On September 11, 1928 Reza Khan founded Bank Meli Iran (The Iranian National Bank) with only 20 Million Rials of capital. This was the first Iranian national bank. Later on Reza Khan built other banks such as the Agricultural Bank (July 17, 1935) and Rahni Bank (January 15, 1939).

21. On May 12, 1930 Reza Khan had officially transferred the right to print currency and coins from Bank Shahanshahi to Bank Meli Iran. Before this date, Iran did not even own a bank and foreign owned banks were printing the Iranian currency and coins!

22. He built the Officer's University and the War University. The grand opening of the War University was on September 24, 1935. The Officer's University trained officers and the War University trained Generals.

And so many other tasks which he achieved.....

For all the above and other important dates in history of Iran, review the:

IPC Calendar

This calendar will be the proposed official calendar of Iran, post liberation.

This is how Reza Khan built the modern Iran. "Everything Iran was, is and will be is because of Reza Shah The Great." Name any Iranian Industry and I will trace it back to Reza Khan. He is truly father of the nation.

Great Men of History

As a matter of fact my Grand Mother was one of the first women who graduated from The Tehran University's first graduating class! My grand mother, thanks to Reza Shah The Great was a graduate from the first class of scholars who came out of University of Tehran as a medical doctor. She became a gynecologist and served her country well. One of the first Female Doctors in Iran, she was a Lioness. She was a big time nationalist, who served the poor people and treated them for free. She charged the wealthy to create a balance, so she could do the most for her people. My grand mothers and other educated women of Iran would have never had the chance to serve their people, if it wasn't for Reza Khan Sardare Sepah and father of nation's reforms.

Reza is Iran and Iran is Reza ...

It has been stated that a new era in Iran's history opened on the 1920s with the coming to power of Reza Khan, a towering figure whose unique personality and unique career left a deep imprint upon the life of Iranians. Reza Khan's rapid ascent from common soldier to King could be compared with the rise of Napoleon in France or Bernadotte in Sweden; however, it was more striking in terms of the social distance covered. Napoleon had the advantage of going to a military academy before embarking on a regular army career. Bernadotte was indeed a soldier who carried "the marshal's baton" in his knapsack and ended as king, but a king in a foreign country, to some extent imposed by external influence. Not so Reza Shah, who grew up in a purely Iranian environment, assumed the imperial rank among his own people, and thus created a real saga of a self-made man against the background of Iran's monarchical tradition.

Reza Khan is conducting a Persian Aryan Salute (with right hand) while inspecting the troops.

In his national policies two main features stood out: nationalism and modernization. In this respect he could be compared to Peter the Great, who launched Russia from her medieval slumber upon a path of modernity. Among his contemporaries Reza Shah was frequently compared to his neighbor, Kemal Ataturk of whose attitudes and reforms he was fully aware. The two leaders had certainly a good deal in common: their burning nationalism, their determination to modernize their countries, and their critical attitude towards the intrusion of religion into the public life of their respective nations. But the two also differed considerably from each other. While Ataturk was willing to burn the bridges with the past, Reza Shah not only maintained the connection to the past but also promoted a revived consciousness of ancient Achaemenian glory, particularly through architectural symbolism. In this sense, of course, he was more fortunate because his nation has had a long record of civilized life when the Turks were still leading a nomadic existence in the steppes of central Asia.

Reza Khan's simple room and study. He had a modest single bed in the room, which he used occasionally; however, mostly he was not even sleeping on the bed! He was sleeping on the simple featherbed mattress on the floor! If you did not know he was the Shah, then you could have mistaken him for a simple working class man!

You see, Reza Khan did not wait for the people to grant him his crown and throne, but he claimed and took his crown and throne. Maybe the disgraceful Reza Pahlavi II, the symbol of weakness and indecision, who does not have a drop of his grand father's essence, can learn from his courage.

Reza Khan, The Early Days

Let us go back in history and back to the rise of Reza Khan, savior of Iran. Reza Khan was born on 1878 in Alasht, a village in Savad Kuh county of the state of Mazandaran. As the son of Colonel Abbas Ali Khan, he followed father's trade and at age 14 he joined the Cossack Brigade originally made by Absolutist Russian Empire in Iran. His commander was his uncle, General Nasrollah Khan. His father was Abbas Ali Khan from Mazandaran and his mother was Noush-Afarin from Armenia.

R. Reza Khan was born in a simply small cottage in Alasht Village of Savad Kuh County of Mazandaran Province

Reza Khan, The Youth

Starting as a Cossack trooper he worked his way up to a colonel; therefore, he was known as Reza Khan Mir-Panj. Eventually he became a general and then commander in chief of the army. On 1921 he made a coup de tat and became the Minister of War. Later on he became the Prime Minister. On 1923 he overthrow the legal constitutional monarchy of Qajar. Why did he do that? Because it was dysfunctional.

Why Constitutional Monarchy Will Never Work in Iran?

Today's constitutional monarchists desire to create a constitutional monarchy in Iran. These people are pro Reza Pahlavi and Pahlavi Dynasty. They want to bring Pahlavi Dynasty back to power and make Reza Pahlavi a constitutional monarch! This is laughable, because Reza Shah Pahlavi was the person who overthrew the legal constitutional monarchy of Iran! If constitutional monarchy is good, then why the starter of Pahlavi Dynasty made a coup and over threw it?

Today, these constitutional monarchists claim that Islamic Republic of Iran is an "illegal regime" and they consider the Pahlavi's ousted monarchy the legal regime of Iran! I guess these clowns are forgetting that Pahlavi's monarchy itself is considered illegal! On 1925 the starter of the Pahlavi Dynasty had over thrown the legal constitutional monarchy of Iran; therefore, the complete reign of Pahlavi Dynasty was illegal! But then again these clowns (today's monarchists) are all suffering from severe selective amnesia. This is a specific monarchist disease, which only monarchists suffer from it! When for their benefit, they recall everything but when it is not for their benefits, they seem to forget the complete history! Monarchists are the greatest political clowns in history of Iran!

Reza Khan, a True Republican

So on 1923 Reza Khan had over thrown the legal and democratic constitutional monarchy of Iran. Primarily he despised Monarchy and Monarchists. He also despised Mullahs and religion. His goal was to establish a secular nationalist republic in Iran. As the Prime Minister, he insisted that they stop calling him "Sardar-e Sepah" (Leader of the Army) and start calling him by his last name "Pahlavi". So instead of Reza Khan Sardar-e Sepah, he ordered all to only call him by the name Reza Pahlavi. Later on when he became Shah and statesmen and courthouse were calling him Reza Shah, once again he insisted that they stop calling him Reza Shah and if they really care to respect him, then just call him Reza Khan. This man was clearly and openly despised titles, Persian Flattery, Ass Kissing, Hand Kissing and specifically Monarchy and Monarchists. Reza Khan was a down to earth, modest man and a simple nationalist. All his life, he lived a simple life in a simple room named his study and he slept either in a simple single bed or on the floor. He was a military man, a revolutionary and a determined man to change the face and fundamental of his nation. But of course "Monarchist School of Lies" insists to portray him as a monarchist! The fact was that Reza Khan despised the institution of monarchy and considered it corrupt. Reza Khan could not stand monarchists and considered them fake and superficial. In fact non-of the great backbones of Monarchy were true monarchists! Take a look at this list:

True Nature of All Great Monarchists

Reza Khan (Reza Shah The Great) = Closet Republican
Dr. Kourosh Aryamanesh = Closet Nationalist
Dr. Shapour Bakhtiar = Closet Secular Democrat
Dr. Fereydoun Farrokhzad = Closet Socialist
Dariush Homayoun = Closet SUMKA (Nazi)

As you can see, the backbones of Monarchy, themselves were not monarchists, but out of desperation and due to the oppression of monarchists, they have blended in as monarchists so they could have made "Changes" from within the corrupt system of monarchy!

These are the facts, which they do not teach you in Monarchist school of lies!

They say I am on the crusade against monarchy!
The truth is that I am on the crusade to get Iranians out of the Dark Ages!
Monarchists at worst live in 1800s and at best live in 1978!
Monarchy is dead and yesterday's news.
I am all about tomorrow.

Monarchs and Monarchy in a Nutshell

A Monarch by today's standards is an unqualified and untalented person who reigns only due to the fact that his father was a monarch!

A Monarchist by today's standards is an unqualified and untalented person whom cannot make something of himself on his own; therefore, he needs to suck up to a monarch via traditional hand kissing and ass kissing, so the monarch will grant him a position which in fact he does not deserve and he could have never achieved on his own!

Monarchs act as rotting corps and monarchists act as leeches and maggots feeding off of these corps!

Definition of Monarchy

The complete institution of monarchy is the government of Under-Achievers (Monarchists) through an Under-Achiever (Monarch) for the Under-Achievers (Monarchists)!

This system of government has nothing to do with secularism, federalism, democracy and surely it is not the government of the masses. The sole reason that today's European monarchies behave civilized is because the masses of Europe forced them to become civilized and democratic, or else Monarchs and Monarchists by nature are authoritarian, undemocratic, oppressive and reactionary.

Reza Shah wanted to end Monarchy on 1925

From 1906 - 1909 the constitutional revolutionaries and constitutional monarchists such as Satar Khan and Baqer Khan shed blood and spent many efforts to establish a constitutional monarchy in Iran. During the reign of Ahmad Shah Qajar (1909 - 1925), Iran was the perfect example of a constitutional monarchy (European Style). Obviously the constitutional monarchy did not work in Iran because the nation became on the verge of collapse. Absolutist monarchy, also did not work in Iran, or else people would have not committed to a grand revolution to change it to a constitutional monarchy. So neither absolutist monarchy, nor constitutionalist monarchy could have worked in Iran. Both systems had their chances, both systems governed Iran and both systems failed miserably. No one was aware of this fact, better than Reza Khan. His goal was to end monarchy and create the first republic in Iran, the same as what Kemal Ataturk had done in Turkey. A Secular Nationalist Republic with Reza Khan as the first president would have been the desired system of government for Iran. This was Reza Khan's plan. His popularity was so high that he would have been elected for president surely for two consecutive terms. After him, would come one democratically elected president after another. This was Reza Khan's logical and rational plan for Iran.

Reza Khan visiting the Girls' Academy for the occasion of Banning the Hejab and Liberation Day of the Iranian women. Observe the girl scouts. Reza Khan's speech:
"You my sisters and my daughters will train the future generation of Iran. You will have the power to be great teachers and train a fine future generation for Iran. Avoid luxury and waste. Be simple. Assist your fellow men. Get used to economic lifestyle. Save and do not be wasteful. Be in full force constructive for the nation."

Monarchists and Mullahs' Sabotage

Throughout the history of Iran, Monarchists and Mullahs, Feudals and Religion had always co-existed, cooperated and formed an unholy alliance for the benefit of their own social classes. This is no news that Monarchists and Mullahs had always sold the prosperity of Iran for their personal gains. Both groups were and are always existed in depth of corruption. Both groups were always the elite who ruled Iran. They were too powerful to be disobeyed. Monarchists, Mullahs, Feudals, Darbar (courthouse) and Ramals (Fortune Tellers) would all be out of jobs and commissions if Iran would have changed to a Republic! They were struggling to save their own necks! Without the blessing of this combine powerful force, no one could rule Iran. Reza Khan had the will to break the old traditional taboo and he was determined to make a change; however, he was politically too weak to take on this combine institute, an unholy alliance of the Reactionaries consisting of Monarchists, Mullahs, Feudals, Darbar (courthouse) and Ramals (Fortune Tellers). Reza Khan was forced to become a Shah and start the Pahlavi Dynasty or else they would have not allowed him to reign. Reza Khan figured that there would have been a bloody civil war and by no means he was strong enough to take on both the Monarchists (Feudals) and Mullahs (Religion). He saw no other solution but to give in and become a Shah, so he could have commit to a "Change" from within the corrupt system of monarchy.

Reza Khan at Girl's Academy during the celebration ceremony of Banning Hejab and Liberation of the Iranian women. As you see, women had thrown away chadors, head-scarves and lachaks and they are wearing modern hats and dresses.

Parliament and Representatives' Sabotage

An interesting point is that even back then in the Majlis (Parliament), people such as Mohamad Mosadeq, Hassan Modares and other then Liberal Democrats and future Jebhe Meli members, were all against Reza Khan's firm decision to end the corrupt constitutional monarchy and to establish a firm lawful republic in Iran! They used to call this move, an "authoritarian step"! These representatives were basically the aristocracy of Iran and they did not care for a fundamental change, yet they wanted slight reforms and superficial democratic face for the government.

Mosadeq himself was an off shoot Qajar and old aristocracy. He really did not care if the nation was going down the drain and sewerage, but as long as democracy exists and the name of country is a constitutional monarchy, then stick with the status quo! This was Mosadeq's mentality even way back then! Back then Mosadeq and Mosadeqists were in perfect harmony with the courthouse and rotten monarchists to save the rotting constitutional monarchy of Iran!

Mosadeq and Jendeye Meli Iran (Jebhe Meli Iran) had a history of flip-flops and joining any which way the wind blows!

So as you see, monarchists, mullahs, feudals, courthouse, aristocracy and majlis were all against Reza Khan's desire to end monarchy and start a republic. Non of these groups desired a fundamental change but all they needed was a facelift!

Grave Mistake: Creation of Pahlavi Dynasty on 1925

Cyrus, Darius, Xerxes, Mithradates, Shapour, Yaqub Leis, Abbas, Nader, Reza Khan, were the 9 Greats who had a vision and made it a reality to make Iran great. Iran went totally off course .... in my opinion on 1925 and for sure on 1941. To create Pahlavi Dynasty was a Grave Mistake. A mistake that ended up in 1979 Islamic Reaction. Only Fools are still singing the Diseased Pahlavi's monarchial rule and returning this disease to Iran songs!

There will be no return of Monarchy in the future of Iran! History does not go backwards! Monarchy died 28 + years ago on 1979. In my opinion, it had to die on 1925 but Reza Khan at that time was politically too weak to make a stand against the combined forces of Monarchists, Feudals, Aristocrats, Mullahs, Majlis and Darbar! We cannot force Iran and push it back in the history! Monarchy is done with and dead for 28 + years.

History Could be Different!

Reza Khan would have ended Monarchy on 1925. This means Alahazrat would have never become Shah and ruled Iran, 1979 would have never happened, Monarchy would have rested in peace on 1925, then 1953 and definitely 1979 and Mullahs Rule, would have never happened! A strong Nationalist Secular Militant Government, in the style of Turkey would have taken Iran to 21st century and beyond. Islam would have never become strong and useless bums like Reza Pahlavi would have never been heard of! Only if I could truly traveled in time, I would have stopped Reza Khan to give in to the Monarchists on 1925!

What Monarchists had done to Iran on 1925, was a step short of Treason. They sold Iran for the benefits of their own Feudal and Aristocratic social class. Monarchy as always was and is rotten to the core.

Myth of Constitutional Monarchy

Today we have two types of monarchists consisting of the Absolutist Monarchists in
constitutionalist Clothing and then the true Constitutionalist Monarchists. The first group are a bunch of fascists in disguise. They are no talent thugs who cannot make it and succeed in a free democratic and competitive regime; therefore they are in need of polishing the balls of a grand dictator and erecting him as a Shah, so under the shadows of his balls, they can rule Iran and be somebody. This group is the most reactionary group aside Mullahs. In fact the great majority of the Iranian Monarchist Movement are Absolutists in disguise of Constitutionalists. Why am I so sure? Just take a look at everything they have done since 1979 and see the way they conduct themselves in public, on internet forums and in their media. No one is even allowed to speak except themselves! These thugs are fascists in disguise. Once they have failed before 1909 (Constitutionalist Revolution) and once after 1925 (Re-establishment of the Absolutist Monarchy) until the results of their fruits had miserably failed on 1979 (Islamic Reaction).

Next, we have the dreaming fools aka true Constitutionalist Monarchists who assume that they can establish a European style monarchy in Iran. This second group are a slim minority consisting of exile born Iranian, young illogical monarchists (Jujeh Monarchists) and other irrational groups which are absolutely distant from the realities of history and Iran. This group does not learn from the history that from 1909 to 1925, we had the perfect constitutional monarchy established in Iran, yet it had failed miserably and the nation was almost destroyed; therefore, Reza Khan had to take action to end it.

So as we see, monarchy at its worst (absolutist) is a miserable dictatorship, and at its best (constitutionalist) is a miserable dysfunctional and backwarded regime with a puppet monarch in a monkey suit! Both ways, the system of monarchy is an outdated, corrupt and reactionary system of government. Some people never learn because they have chosen to close their eyes to the history.

Chadori Imperial Generals

On 1941, 1953, and then 1979, some Imperial Generals and High Ranking Officers dropped their weapons, fled their posts, wore chadors and escaped to save their necks.

When a real soldier gets arrested as a prisoner of war, he shall only reveal his name, rank and serial number. Of course there are exceptions to this rule such as:

Many Iranian Imperial Generals and High Ranking Officers on 1941 (Allies Occupation), 1953 (Mosadeqist Occupation) and 1979 (IRI Occupation) whom threw down their arms and uniforms, wore "Chadors" and fled the battle scenes in to hiding and even exile. These brave Imperial Generals and Officers did not even get to the point of singing their names, ranks and serial numbers during the arrest, because they had never gotten arrested at the first place!

Above groups were the same groups whom over and over had abandoned Iran, disarmed themselves, took off their uniforms and put on chadors to fly the battlefields! They were known as the world famous "Chadori Generals" and "Chadori Officers"!

Reza Khan, a Progressive Nationalist

If we start to discuss Reza Shah's complete history of achievements, we will be writing documents for days! It has been stated that Reza Shah's achievements could be summed up in three parts:

1. Building the infrastructure of a modern state.
2. Gaining independence from foreign domination.
3. Forcing socio-cultural reforms.

With regard to the first, Reza Shah did indeed lay down the foundations without which a modern state could not function. These included assertion of government authority and national unification in the face of various centrifugal and anarchistic forces; the creation of a reliable army under national command; establishment of a modern fiscal system based on rational organization; and development of the minimum of communications and transportation facilities compatible with the requirements of a modern state.

Kemal Ataturk and Reza Pahlavi. Strong men of history who changed the paths of their nations. They don't make them like these two anymore!

Gaining of independence from foreign occupation and control was the second major achievement of Reza Shah. At the very outset of his rule he had to face the threat of militant Communism imported into Iran with the advancing Red Army which, despite the repudiation by the Bolsheviks of Tsarist Russia's imperialistic practices, fell into the old pattern of occupying the northern provinces of Iran and threatening the integrity of the entire state.

This struggle for emancipation from foreign control was marked by two crises. The first was the Soviet attempt to set up a separatist Communist government in the province of Gilan. This required both military and diplomatic countermeasures, the outcome being the conclusion of the Soviet-Iranian Treaty of February 1921 and the subsequent withdrawal of Soviet troops from Iranian territory. The treaty, however, was negotiated by Iranian representatives in Moscow while Reza Khan, not yet fully in power, was personally commanding military operations against the northern rebels and their Soviet allies. This perhaps explains why the treaty was burdened with an onerous clause in the form of article 6 authorizing entry of Soviet troops into Iranian territory, should the latter become a base for anti-Soviet aggression. Although the attached memoranda made it clear that the provision in question comprised only the toleration by the Iranian government of the anti- Soviet activities of White Russian elements against the Soviet territory, in subsequent years Moscow tended to give a more comprehensive interpretation to this clause by including in it Iran's formal ties with Western powers during the period following World War II, which clearly was not encompassed by the terms of the original clause. Regardless, however, of the text of the treaty in question, Reza Shah succeeded in removing the Soviet presence in Iran and in effectively curbing the activities of Soviet agents and their Communist allies inside the country.

The second crisis that the Shah faced was the one with Great Britain. It revolved around oil, the concession for which was held by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, the latter in turn controlled by the British Admiralty. Relations between Great Britain and Iran profoundly differed from those between Iran and Russia. Reza Shah built a new navy force. Iran's navy bloomed during him, later on it had damaged to a point by British. Such as gunboat "Babr," (Leopard) sunk by the British during World War II. While Britain exercised imperial control in India, the Persian Gulf, and the Middle East, she was essentially a status quo power not bent on territorial aggrandizement and not guided by a militant or aggressive ideology. Their interest in Iran focused largely on the preservation of such economic advantages as she or her citizens had achieved in that country. Therefore, from the point of view of Iran's independence, Britain was not only a country in a different category from the Soviet Union, but even could be counted upon as providing a counterbalance to the Soviets' actual or potential aggressive designs. This, however, did not diminish Britain's economic self-interest, which was based on somewhat outmoded notions regarding the relationship between the metropolis and the colonies or semicolonies. Although the showdown between Reza Shah and the British over oil in the early 1930s abounded in moments of tension and recrimination, it ended by a compromise in which rationality and restraint were displayed by both parties.

In his pursuit of policies aiming at the safeguarding of national independence and security, Reza Shah was ready to cooperate with the neighboring states, which, like Iran, were anxious to safeguard their integrity against possible Soviet expansion and subversion. To this end he entered, in 1937, into a regional alliance known as the "Sa'dabad Pact", the other signatories being Turkey, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Furthermore, not unlike his Constitutionalist predecessors of the period preceding World War I, Reza Shah was inclined to look for a friendly third force that would help Iran free herself from Soviet menace and British influence. Thus he repeated the experiment of 1911 when an American expert, "Morgan Shuster', had been brought to Iran to reorganize Persian finances by inviting in the early 1920s another American, "Dr. Arthur Chester Millspaugh", to assist in the reorganization of the Iranian treasury. After some years a German, Dr. Kurt Lindenblatt, was appointed governor of the national bank, while numerous German technicians were invited to advise Iran in developing her industry and communications. Although these contacts with the United States and Germany respectively did not represent a movement toward political or military alliance, nevertheless they were conceived by the Shah and his ministers as a material factor in reducing Iran's dependence upon her two powerful imperial neighbors.

Reza Shah inaugurated the Trans-Iranian railroad, his dream which came true. The task of rebuilding, unifying, and strengthening the state consumed so much time and energy that to an outside observer it is little short of amazing that Reza Shah found enough strength to enact a number of social and cultural reforms, some of which had to be imposed against fierce opposition from various entrenched interests. The main thrust of these reforms was to transform the hitherto lethargic masses into a new and enlightened citizenry that would actively participate in the development of the country.

Reza Shah was thus a pioneer in introducing what we may call a meritocracy in Iran's national life. Under his reign it was not inherited wealth or connections that counted but actual competence and performance.

He was impatient with slothful and lazy officials and prone to dismiss or punish those who failed in their tasks or betrayed his trust. Having a dim view of the role played in the society by reactionary and often semiliterate mullahs, (clerics) he took away from the religious establishment its judicial and educational responsibilities while developing under the state auspices a modern school system with the University of Tehran, opened in the 1930s, at its apex. He was also the first ruler in Iran to call for the emancipation and education of women. Aware of the shortage of the skilled manpower in his country, Reza Shah was willing to employ foreign experts. However, to avoid encouraging the foreign political influence that such experts might represent, he made it a point to hire them on an individual basis and to place them under Iranian control. Such experts, for instance, were employed in constructing the Shah's cherished project, the Trans-Iranian Railway. However, he took care not to rely on technicians of any single nationality and, furthermore, deliberately avoided dependence on foreign governments by providing exclusively Iranian financing of the project. Above all, he instilled in his people a sense of pride and self-reliance.

Reza khan tried hard to progress and push Iran to the gates of 21sth century. Whatever Iran is, and what ever Iran has is due to his efforts. Iran was in dark ages before him, he transformed the nation to a modern and well-developed civilized country. His son Mohamad Reza Shah continued in his footsteps (somewhat), and thanks to Pahlavi I and II, a backwarded land became the Legendary Iran, which was worlds famous at the time. If his efforts weren't done, our nation would not even existed as one piece and as a country, which is now. The separatists of Gilan, Kurdistan, Azerbaijan and then the Turks, the Russians, the British all and all would have divided our nation in to many pieces, the same way that they stole and chopped off Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and other areas from the Mother Land and fabricated those nations out of their rectums.

Any time you see a country with the last syllable of its name ending in "istan", you should know that, this nation was once a state belonging to Iran, a part of our beloved Mother Persia which was cut off of our body the same as a piece of our heart from our body. Yes, the British and Russians had created many countries by chopping off our beloved Persian Empire, and some disgraceful Qajar Kings deep in superstition just sat there and watched it happen!

If it was not for Reza Khan, our women would still be uneducated, wrapped in veils, barefoot and pregnant, and our men would have been wearing Kolah Namadi (Islamic beanie hat) or Turban getting no oxygen to their brains, running around barefoot in the villages, and our nation would have not even existed as of today's Iran!

I am truly beginning to think that Turban and Veil or Lachak (Islamic female scarf) is blocking and cutting off the circulation of oxygen to get to people's brain cells through the head's skin cells! Is this why our people are brain dead?! Is this why our clergy are brain absent?! Is this why Sisters of Zeynab are senseless Saliteh and Akeleh wenches?!

Reza Loved Iran and Iranians

Let me tell you a tale about this great man. Everytime he built a new railroad bridge. Road bridge or a road tunnel, he would force the engineers who built these constructions to stand right underneath these bridges and tunnels, while the first trains or cars would cross them and test drive them. He would even go as far as holding them at gun points to stand under the bridges which they had built for the grand openings! These episodes have been documented by may German, Iranian and other foreign engineers. When they asked him: "Why do you do this to us?" Reza Khan used to reply: "My people are not wealthy and my nation is not a rich nation to throw their money away. My people have spent their hard earning money and taxes to build these bridges. I am here to make sure that my people will get their money's worth and they will get a functional construction for their money. If you people trust your own work, then you will bet your life with it. If they collapse, you will be the first to find out!"

This great man loved his nation and was a great nationalist. He was not a thief (unlike the Pahlavis). He lived in a modest study room and slept in a modest small bed. He often wore military clothes, even after his military service as a colonel, general and the minister of war. He was a shah but always in old but clean military clothing and always wearing those old military boots! As I have stated before, they often asked him:

People: When will you take off these old boots?
Reza Khan: Until my nation becomes self-sufficient.

He wore those boots and he secured Iran from separatist movements by stumping on the separatists and then he wore those boots, he saved taxes and he built Iran.

They used to ask him:

Darbaris: Alahazrat, what is your desire about this issue?
Reza Khan: Don't call me Alahazrat, call me Reza Khan. I am only the "Servant of the People".

Reza Khan was no rotten Shah, no cheesy Aristocrat, no corrupt Feudal, yet miles aways from them! Reza Khan was only the Servant of the Masses. Reza Khan was a True Nationalist. They don't build them like Reza Khan anymore!

The Bridge of Victory

Throughout Reza Khan's reign, Iran had a beautiful relation with Nazi Germany and Axis powers. German engineers were all over Iran and building all kinds of projects and participating in Reza Khan's plans in speedy industrialization of Iran. Not only Germany was trading military and non-military goods with Iran, yet the official uniforms of the Iranian Military during Reza Khan were the replicas of Nazi Germany's uniforms and helmets! Reza Khan was very found of Axis Powers and had close economic ties with them. One of the main reasons for this issue was the fact that both Iran and Germany were traditionally nations of Aryan Race and Culture, and of course the reason was that German engineering was world famous.

Even though Reza Khan and Iranian Government had Axis Sympathies, yet during the Second World War, Iran was officially a neutral nation. On 1941, the Allied forces led by the British, Russians and Americans conducted a combine air, land, and sea invasion of Iran. Their excuse was that Reza Khan and Iran were in Axis with the Axis Forces. The last thing allied needed was a petroleum rich Iran to join forces with Nazi Germany. The reality was that they were in need of Iran's railroad and road systems to open a root of supplies from Persian Gulf to back then Russian borders to support Russia and opening the powerful second front on the east to fight the Nazi Germany. Iran became the "Bridge of Victory" for the Allies!

At first Reza Khan started a resistance against the Allied Invasion but he was no fool and it was pretty obvious that the Persian forces were no match to Allied forces! On the other hand, there were a good number of "Chadori Generals" and "Chadori Officers" flying the battle scene! To avoid further bloodshed, he seized fire.

British forced Reza Khan to resign his position and then practically forced him to leave his nation to exile. Reza Khan would have never left Iran on his own will, so the British practically kicked him out! British forced Reza Khan out of Iran to San Mauritius Island, east of Madagascar Island in Africa and then to Johannesburg, South Africa where he passed away. Reza Khan had passed away on July 26, 1944. He was 66 years old. Until this day, there exists a conspiracy theory that the British poisoned him!

The Day that Reza Khan was forced in to exile to Africa, he took a handful of Iranian soil with him.
When he came, Iran was shattered and destroyed,
When he left, he only took a handful of soil from the Modern Iran, which he had built.

Reza Khan was brought to Iran and buried in Rey (Shahr-e Rey) near Tehran. Until 1979, his mausoleum was standing tall and strong in Rey. After the Iranian Reaction of 1979, Imam Khomeini had officially sanctioned and banned everything related to Reza Khan! Khomeini stood for everything that Reza Khan hated! Reza Khan and Ruhollah Khomeini were extreme opposite sides of the Iranian Story. While Reza stood for Revolution, Ruhollah stood for Reaction! On 1979 Khomeini ordered the mental criminal Ayatollah Sadeq Khalkhali to destroy and level the Mausoleum of Reza Khan.

You and I as true nationalists of Iran will start rebuilding our nation. You and I will change all present patterns. You will start right here by reading IPC and educating yourselves to the history of Iran. We shall start when Reza Khan stopped on 1925 or 1941. We will continue where Reza Khan was forced to stop. On 1925 Reza Khan stopped due to sabotage of the corrupt monarchists and mullahs. On 1941 Reza Khan stopped due to sabotage of the British. Today, we start where Reza Khan stopped. We shall continue the path to salvation thus this is our only choice and we are destined to continue this path to greatness to regain our place in the world. Iran will rise again; Persian Empire will be revived. We will make sure of it. Read:

Are you, true nationalists of Iran also down with the cause?

Who was the Real Reza Khan?

Reza Khan had a long face and a wide Aryan forehead. Reza Khan was tall and had broad shouldered. On top of his nose, there was a scar, which had caused by a sword during one of his campaigns. His eyes were hypnotizing and his character was charismatic. When he spoke, masses listened. He had a charismatic effect on the masses. When he was kind, he was most lovely and calm but when he was mad, no one would dare come near him!

Reza Khan always talked less and thought more. He was always in search of solutions for Iranian problems. He was a visionary, a planner and a problem solver.

Reza Khan was a simple man. He was a modest man. He dressed very modest except in special occasions. He was always wearing his old military uniform and old military boots!

Reza Khan was very curious, always asking questions and learning everything that he did not know. His most joyful moments were when he would learn something totally new. He had a background of very little education and he started as a soldier in early age of 14. All his life he had no time to educate himself because he was always running around and serving his nation as a soldier, colonel, general, commander in chief of armed forces, war minister, prime minister and then shah; therefore, after his coronation, he had more time to educate himself about the global general knowledge.

One of his most important characteristics was that he truly never mingled with foreigners, except when this consorting would result in building Iran, for instance his relation with German engineers and diplomats. On the contrary, he was always consorting with Iranians and masses of Iran from all walks of life. His favorite socializing often occurred during his travels and it was with the working classes, labors and farmers of Iran. He truly loved Iran and Iranians.

Reza Shah the Great Photo Album

Where did Mohamad Reza Pahlavi and Reza Pahlavi II went wrong?

Reza Khan's face was always sunburned and dark, simply because he was always outdoors running around, fighting the enemies of Iran, building Iran or travelling around the country, living amongst the masses and inquiring about their needs. You see, this is where Mohamad Reza Pahlavi and Reza Pahlavi II came short. When Alahazrat thrown the 2500 Years Celebration of the Persian Empire, no Iranian was allowed to witness it except the elite and the foreign leaders! With Reza Khan, it was different. Reza Khan did not care to consort and hang around with foreigners. He loved to travel, communicate and live amongst his own people. He was constantly dealing, talking and trading opinion with Iranians all around Iran. Reza Khan's love and joy was that he was from the masses and he lived amongst the masses. In contradiction, Mohamad Reza Pahlavi and Reza Pahlavi II were never amongst the masses, neither they had lived with the masses or connected with the masses! They always had distant themselves from the masses. The only initiation which Alahazrat (Mohamad Reza Pahlavi) took to capture the heart of the masses was the "White Revolution of Shah and The People" and even that sounded great on paper but never became a full-blown hard-core revolution! Specifically during the final years of his reign, Alahazrat had become absolutely detached from the masses and he became a fascist megalomaniac who considered himself "The Father" of his people who was above the masses! This is absolutely 180 degrees opposite of how Reza Khan conducted his affairs with his people and the masses of Iran.

There were no connection between Alahazrat and the masses. On 1978 when millions rushed the streets to openly show their hatred for the Shah, it was pretty clear that how Iranians really felt about Alahazrat! Reza Pahlavi II's failure as a leader also rests in the fact that he was never one of the masses and he had always distant himself away from the masses and surrounded himself amongst the second most reactionary group of Iranians which are the monarchists (the most reactionary group of Iran are the Mullahs). Reza Pahlavi has a circle of hand kissers and ass kissers around him. These are the same group who surrounded his father and caused him to distant himself from the masses and finally caused his downfall. The same group of monarchists had caused Reza Pahlavi II to become distant from the masses and an irrelevant figure in politics of Iran. These Hand Kissers surround the monarch and give him a false perception of himself. They falsely boost monarch's ego to the point that his head starts floating in the sky like a balloon! These Khayeh Mals (Ball Polishers) eventually create dictators and then cause the dictator's downfall. The son had never learned from the mistakes of his father. Neither the father nor the son had fully followed the path of Reza Khan!

To Reza Khan

Alas O alas,

Reza Khan where are you today to see that everything which you had done and all of your efforts had ended in nothingness. The nation that you tried so hard for 16 years to build, went back 200 years and worst than it was before you and the same as it was during Qajar's constitutional monarchy. All the effort has wasted.

Reza Khan, not to worry, not all is destroyed! As long as our hearts are beating, the children of Iran will one-day rise up and revive the Mother Persia. Only then, will be the time to end the Darkest Islamic Religious Reaction of the black and for once and for all free the Mother Persia from the chains of religious and superstitious ignorance. Reza Khan, not to worry, not to weep in thine lonely grave, we are here and we will revive our nation. Reza Khan we the sons and daughters of Iran will take a solemn oath to rid our nation from the traitors and back forces of reaction. Reza Khan we will rebuilt Iran and will do it under your guidance. We will revive our lost dignity and pride; "The Pure Persian Pride". Reza Khan may your Great Spirit rest in peace thus we have not given up!

Father of Nation, Reza Shah The Great, simply a legend.

Lo Reza Khan, rest in peace thus we are awake and we shall continue the struggle.

Reza was from the masses and lived amongst the masses.
Reza was man of the Masses.
Reza was Iran and Iran was, is and will be Reza.
Reza Khan sleep and rest in peace thus we are awake …

Reza Khan, this was my tribute to you. My job is to keep the true history of Iran alive.

I, The History Teller
