A national congress commemorating Mirza Koochak Khan Jangali opened on Saturday in the presence of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, and attended by thousands of ulema, elites, thinkers and intellectuals.
Mirza Kochak Khan Jangali (1880-1921), an early 20th century revolutionary and a national hero in modern Iranian history, had founded a revolutionary movement which was based in the forests of Gilan, known as the Nehzat-e Jangal (Movement of Forest). His uprising started in 1914 and remained active against domestic and foreign enemies until 1921.
Mirza proved that an Islamic nation would not tolerate aggressors and colonialist powers.
