What did Iran lost and what did gain during during the past 39 years of Iranian Revolutionary Guards’s regime?





What did Iran lost and what did gain during during the past 39 years of Iranian Revolutionary Guards’s regime?

A simple answer would be : 
Iranian people lost a secular dictator like Shah to a Religious Dictator like velayat Faqieh - of Khamenei 
Lost a  secular police state ( SAVAK ) society to a radical religious revolutionary Guard society

Women have lost a lot in the revolution …Religious state is not good at all not for anyone particularly for women …the religious state deprive the women from their basic human and social rights … during the Shah there was no dress code for men and women  , women were free what to wear but by the revolution they are forced to Hijab ….they lost their basic social rights .

People have lost social freedom , this does not mean they had political freedom ,no…. because in both regime there is no political freedom , no freedom of press , no freedom to have political parties and free election ……

Both regime based on one man state police . People sovereignty is lost in both regime . 

By revolution Iranian people took one step forward by removing the Shah’s dictatorship , but when Khomeini created his own police state again , this time people were pushed two step backward ….

Its hard to answer this question in a simple lost or gain . 39 years ago , the oppressed Iranian people rose against a dictator , the shah , who have created a totalitarian regime , keeping all the power in his hand  ( after the coup by CIA and MI6 in 1953 against Nationalist Government of Mossadeq  a liberal democratic Government  with parliamentary democracy )  and  SAVAK as the backbone of Shahs’ security state police . There was no political opposition or political party as opposition in Iran . Shah had created two political party who participate in a show of democracy and election in a controlled parliament by not true representation. The Shah had deaf ear on people’s cry for freedom and political development in Iran . The Regime of Shah was a secular state , acted as the gendarme of the region supported by US and western allies against the “ soviet Union “ and the rise of communist and socialist and even nationalist inside Iran .  

Iranian people have lost 39 years of their life so far in a very harsh life , in a dark religious time ……As the Europ has gone through for almost 1000 years during the medieval time with church state ……. 
Iranian people could avoid going through this religious period but it was forced to them by the regime of Shah and their own mistake trusting khomeini and of course the influence of the western country for opposing an open society in the middle east  . 

So …With the experience the Iranian people have , they are going  through this transition period from a religions state to a secular modern parliamentary democracy i hope …..

And i want to end my answer to this question with this : No Country at this modern era in the middle east and elsewhere should go through this experience of Iranian people. The state and religion must be separated and clergies must return to their mosques .

Human Rights Watch-

Iran: Investigate Suspicious Deaths in Detention, Release Activists
Authorities Crackdown on Environmentalists 


(Beirut, February 13, 2018) – A third suspicious death in Iranian prisons since early January 2018 underscores the need for an immediate independent inquiry, Human Rights Watch said today. On February 10, the family of a well-known Iranian environmentalist, Dr. Kavous Seyed Emami, who had been in detention for two weeks on bogus charges, reported that he had died under unknown circumstances.

On January 24 and 25, security forces reportedly arrested seven environmental activists on January 24 and 25, including Seyed Emami, a well-known Iranian-Canadian academic and a faculty member of Imam Sadegh University. On February 10, Ramin Seyed Emami, his son, wrote on social media that authorities had summoned his mother the day before to inform her that her husband had “committed suicide” in detention.

“Iranian judicial authorities think they can get away with claiming that Seyed Emami, a well-known professor, simply committed suicide while being detained in one of the highest-security wards of Evin prison,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “The Iranian judiciary long ago lost its credibility after failing to investigate repeated incidents of torture and mistreatment in detention.”

Seyed Emami’s death is the third case of alleged suicide in detention reported by the authorities since early January. On January 7 and 8, in the aftermath of mass arrests that followed protests across the country, activists reported at least two deaths, in the cities of Tehran and Arak.
