Mrs. Jannatpoor was an opponent of the Shah and mullahs’ dictatorship in Iran for more than four decades.
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 intimidations 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.
