من ايرانيم آرمانم رهائي
از اين دين مردم فريب ريائي

تاريخ ر’شد و گسترش اسلام و “ مسلمان سازي “ را نميتوان فهميد ؛ مگر آنكه: ابتدا خصلت “ خشن “ ؛ “ تند “ ؛ “ متجاوز “ و “ مهاجم “ آنرا بشناسيم

Daughter of Iran Revolution Struggles Against the Veil

Zahra Eshraghi
is a granddaughter of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the wife of one reformist leader and the sister-in-law of another.

TEHRAN — When it comes to credentials in Iran's Islamic Republic, Zahra Eshraghi's are cast in gold.

Her grandfather was Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the cleric who overthrew a king and led a revolution in the name of Islam. Her husband's brother is the reformist president, Mohammad Khatami. And her husband, Mohammad Reza Khatami, is the head of the reformist wing of Parliament.
In a society where women can derive enormous power from the men in their lives, those three pillars give Ms. Eshraghi enormous standing. Yet the 39-year-old government official and mother of two has a confession to make. She feels trapped by her family history. And she hates wearing the black veil known as the chador.
"I'm sorry to say that the chador was forced on women," she said over tea and cakes in her upscale apartment decorated in ornate furniture in northern Tehran. "Forced — in government buildings, in the school my daughter attends. This garment that was traditional Iranian dress was turned into a symbol of revolution. People have lost their respect for it. I only wear it because of my family status."
Those are the words of a rebel. Ayatollah Khomeini called the chador the "the flag of the revolution," and early in the revolution of 1979 encouraged all women to wear it. Eventually, all women were forced to wear garments that cover their heads and hide the shape of their bodies.

Ms. Eshraghi's frankness is emblematic of the changes today in Iran, where the values and promises of the revolution have given way to an intense, even dangerous debate about whether religion has a place in politics and society.
As a member of the ayatollah's family, Ms. Eshraghi is expected to embrace the trappings of the revolution and the Islamic Republic that followed. Nothing symbolizes the revolution more than the ankle-length black chador that covers all but a woman's face.

ما - اينك - بيش از هر زمان ديگر نيازمند به شهامت و شجاعت اخلاقي هستيم تا حقيقت را ( همهْ حقيقت را ) ابراز كنيم و آنچه را كه تا حالا ( بدلايل مذهبي يا سياسي ) مدفون بوده از دل تاريخ مان استخراج كنيم.

ملتي كه تاريخ خود را نشناسد ؛ ناچار است آنرا تكرار كند.
