AhlulBayt News Agency: The book "One Grieve and Countless Punches,” by Alireza Ashrafi, got released through Raheyar publication.  

This book is about people's memories of General Soleimani's martyrdom and the atmosphere that surrounded the news of his assassination.

Following the introduction to this book, "Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, an Iranian nuclear scientist, was assassinated in 2012. At the ceremony for the martyr's remains, 300 Sharif University students expressed a desire to change their major to nuclear engineering.

Was the only public action influenced by Ahmadi Roshan's sacrifice this letter from the Sharif University? The answer is definitely no.

The question is, how many incidents such as the assassination of Shahid Ahmadi Roshan and other nuclear martyrs have occurred during the Islamic Revolution's forty years? In which of these incidents and events were people's social and cultural acts the main focus?

The assassination of Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini Beheshti in the Hafte-Tir bombing by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq is another example of this (MEK).

The way the media covered the explosion's perpetrators altered public perception of Beheshti and made clear to the public his true and honored role, while also exposing Mujahedin-e-Khalq's brutality to others. But how much of the responses and adjustments that resulted from these incidents have been documented? It's unfortunate that we haven't properly captured the memories of significant events and people's responses to show the entire world, such as a significant event like the funeral of Imam Khomeini.

This book is the result of countless hours of interviews conducted over the phone, online, and in person over ten days on the eve of the first anniversary of Haj Qasem's martyrdom in the cities of Shiraz, Tehran, Arak, Mashhad, Semnan, Tabriz, Natanz, Ahvaz, Yazd, Sabzevar, and Qom.

This book, which was compiled by a group of oral history researchers from various cities, is now available in 120 pages.
