The Only Martyred Governor is the probable title of a book on the life of martyr Ali Ansari by Dr Rashid Jafarpour.
IBNA: Presently the book has been passed to the martyr's wife for final considerations.
A university lecturer, Jafarpour is a top researcher of political, social and cultural studies.
"At his 30th year of age, Ansari was assassinated by MKO," he said in an interview with IBNA. "So far no publications have been marketed about his life and the book is expected to count as a good start for recognition of his personality and activities to the society."
He said the book's main focus is on the martyr's life and martyrdom. "After receiving his diploma in mathematics, Ansari took teaching as a temporary job and then moved to the US to further his studies. In the US he received his PhD in mathematics. He also visited Imam Khomeini in Paris."
"As the Islamic Revolution triumphed, he came back to Iran and took a post as the governor's deputy in Khorasan province. He then became Gilan's governor. It was there that he was assassinated by one of MKO members during Ramadan," Dr. Jafarpour added.
He went on to say that the martyr's pictures and memories make up a part of the book. "Hamideh Danesh Kazemi, Ansari\'s wife, is presently serving as a member of the scientific board of Alzahra Univesity and is now proofreading the final draft of the book."
The work will be published by the Islamic Revolution Documents Center.
