Many current top figures of the regime, including president Hassan Rouhani and parliament speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, were directly involved in suppressing the student protesters in July 1999.
During the same days, the young and rebellious generation of Iran torched suppressive centers of the mullahs’ regime in different cities. The targets included a center of spread of fundamentalism in Qom torched by the defiant youths.
An IRGC Basij base in Karaj and a banner of Khamenei in Shahr-e Rey were also torched by the defiant youth. Basij is the most hated suppressive paramilitary force and a subsidiary of the terrorist-designated IRGC that is used to crack down on protests and demonstrations such as the November nationwide uprising.
