The famous freedom-fighter, Mirza Kouchak-Khan Jangali

Compiled By: Syed Ali Shahbaz
On December 1, 1921 AD, the famous freedom-fighter, Mirza Kouchak-Khan Jangali, attained martyrdom at the hands of agents of the British-installed Pahlavi potentate of Iran, Reza Khan, who acted in collaboration with the Russians and the British. He attended Islamic schools at a young age and later joined the freedom seekers.
During World War I, he was witness to the chaotic state of Iran, which was occupied by foreign powers. He championed Islamic unity and decided to form a militia to fight against oppression and colonialism. In 1919, the British forced a treaty on the weak Qajarid monarchy that led to further infiltration of the British in Iran. This treaty set the stage for movements against foreign powers’ interference in Iran.
Although Mirza Kouchak Khan Jangali gained significant victories at the start of his struggles in his clashes with the governmental forces, his troops were scattered in the wake of conspiracies hatched by Britain and the Soviet Union that had succeeded Czarist Russia. Meanwhile, Mirza Kouchak Khan Jangali, who had left his hometown to gather forces, fell ill due to snowstorms in the forests of northern Iran, where the agents of Reza Khan found and beheaded him.
