AusIran has verified some key details about this martyr, but the information is not complete.


Asad Rahimi, a 30-year-old protester from Bukan, Iran, became a symbol of resistance and tragedy following his death on November 16, 2022 (25th of Aban 1401 in the Iranian calendar). Rahimi’s life was cut short when he was killed by the gunfire of security forces during a protest. His death highlights the intense and often violent confrontations between protesters and the Iranian government.

In a poignant display of solidarity and grief, the people of Bukan gathered around Rahimi’s lifeless body at the Eftekhari Mosque in Bukan. This gathering was more than just a mourning; it was a stand against the oppressive measures employed by the Iranian authorities against demonstrators. The presence of Rahimi’s body in the mosque turned the religious site into a focal point of communal resistance.

The situation escalated when security forces encircled the mosque, intending to seize Rahimi’s body. This action by the authorities is reflective of a broader strategy used by the Iranian government to suppress dissent and control the narrative surrounding the protests. By taking possession of the bodies of protesters, the government aims to prevent public funerals that could potentially turn into further demonstrations.

However, the people of Bukan, in an act of defiance, decided to bury Rahimi during the night within the mosque’s precincts. This nocturnal burial was not just a logistical decision but a powerful statement of resistance. By burying him there, they ensured that Rahimi’s final resting place would be in his hometown, among the community that supported and mourned him.

The death and burial of Asad Rahimi in Bukan are emblematic of the larger struggle in Iran, where protests have become a regular occurrence, often met with severe responses from the government. Rahimi’s story, though tragic, serves as a poignant reminder of the ongoing fight for rights and freedoms in Iran and the resilience of communities standing up against oppression.
