Iran: In memory of Mother Panahi
Mrs. Najiya Payvandi (Mother Panahi), the mother of Mehrdad Shabestari who was executed in the 1988 massacre of political prisoners, passed away.
She was always in search for the reason and circumstances behind the massacre of her son and other victims of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners…
Her son was executed on August 29, 1988, while only a few months were left from his unjust sentence. That year, this mother dreamt that her son is telling her that he is buried in the place seen in the picture below.
Mother Panahi made this the supposed-resting place of Mehrdad and paid her respects to him for 20 years as the Iranian regime never told her where her son was buried.
