Ahmadinejad minister confronted by Hassan Khomeini

7 Jun 2010

Ahmadinejad’s Defence Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar and Seyed Hassan Khomeini, grandson of the late Imam Khomeini, were reportedly involved in a physical dispute on 4 June. The incident took place after a speech by Hassan Khomeini on 4 June as part of a ceremony at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum, marking the anniversary of the late leader’s death in June 1989. The address was disrupted by state sponsored forces whose chants forced Hassan Khomeini to prematurely end his speech.
The latest confrontation between Seyed Hassan Khomeini came just a few days after the Defence Minister had referred to Seyed Hassan Khomeini as “Seyed Hassan Mostafavi” during a speech, in an attempt to downplay the young Khomeini’s ties to his grandfather Imam Khomeini. Highly offended by this audacious provocation, Hassan Khomeini physically confronted the Defence Minister on Friday while explaining to him “I did this so that you will know my name is Seyed Hassan Khomeini.” The incident took place in a corridor within the mausoleum.
Also, the Javan Online website, an IRGC propaganda tool, reported on the story saying that Najjar was “beaten” by the young Khomeini and Mohammad Ali Ansari, and was later treated at Chamran Hospital. Javan adds that the Defence Minister had undergone surgery prior to the incident, and the “beating” he took on Friday caused “bleeding” in his face. According to this report, the Defence Minister is still being treated in hospital.
Following the fraudulent presidential election of June 2009, Hassan Khomeini has become a target for pro-government forces who expected him to step in defending the government and the Supreme Leader in the months after the election. Relations between the Supreme Leader and the household of Imam Khomeini have become increasingly tenuous in post-1989 Iran.
