DEFENDERS

 

Khorramshahr had become a blooded city from the beginning of the war. It had become blooded to represent the innocence of Basijis and the martyrs; and it was the only way to do it. They fought and martyred innocently and their bodies got disappeared under the evil's tanks. But… the secret of blood got revealed and nobody is aware of it, just the martyrs. Blood circulation for the alive is pleasant but its donation to the beloved is more pleasant; and not more but much more pleasant. The secret of blood is dependency of life to it. If blood is the whole life… then giving it up is the most difficult venture. Somebody who has enjoyed this sweet experience won't enjoy the life anymore. Those who are scared of death will be excluded from Karbala. The true men are those who fight to discover the reality of mankind among the fire. They have defeated the fear to reveal chivalry and the way of martyrdom. Those who are scared of death will get excluded from Karbala. It got so difficult that staying in Khorramshahr meant martyrdom; that night was like Ashoura and it was the time to evaluate those who had remained in the city… Karbala is the lovers' base and devoted the martyr “Seyed Mohammad Ali Jahanara” from the deserved ones whose hearts are full of love without any fear from death. They are eternal; they are the kings of the green islands of the ocean of the light which is shining the whole universe and heavens. Khorramshahr mosque reminds many martyrs like Mohammad Jahanara, Behrouz Moradi, Behnam Mohammadi, Sheykh Sharif Ghonooti, Amir Rafi'ei and Mohammad Dashti ,and …….. .
