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


Nasrin Qadri, was a dedicated Iranian philosophy doctoral student and a poignant figure of resistance during Iran’s 2021 uprising. Born in 1987 in Marivan, Iran, she pursued her undergraduate studies in philosophy at Allameh Tabataba’i University, starting in 2008, and was a doctoral candidate there by 2021. Nasrin’s life was marked by her firm stance against the Islamic Republic’s oppressive measures, a conviction that once led to her arrest in 2009 for clashing with the morality police, resulting in a week-long detention.

Her activism and voice were tragically silenced on November 4, 2022 (13th of Aban 1401 in the Persian calendar), when she succumbed to injuries inflicted by security forces’ batons during the widespread protests in Tehran. These protests were ignited by the death of Mahsa (Jina) Amini, a young woman who died under controversial circumstances while in the custody of Iran’s morality police. Nasrin Qadri’s death highlights the brutal crackdown on peaceful demonstrators demanding basic human rights and freedoms.

Nasrin’s poignant written reflections, shared shortly before her death, serve as a testament to her profound engagement with the struggles faced by women in Iran, reflecting on the existential plight of being reduced to mere objects of repression. Her words, “I am not an idol to be smashed…I am a creator,” echo the collective outcry for dignity and recognition beyond the constraints imposed by authoritarian rule.

The circumstances of Nasrin’s burial were further testament to the regime’s attempt to silence dissent. Her parents were coerced into agreeing to a quiet and unpublicized funeral, under threats from security forces, which aimed to minimize public attention and mourning. Yet, the people’s response to her death and the conditions of her burial was one of defiance and solidarity. Residents of Marivan and beyond lit fires in the streets and gathered in large numbers to protest against the government’s actions, despite heavy security presence and the regime’s narrative attempts to diminish the legitimacy of the protesters’ grievances.

Nasrin Qadri’s legacy is a powerful reminder of the ongoing struggle for freedom and justice in Iran, symbolizing the profound cost of resistance in the face of tyranny. Her life and untimely death encapsulate the yearning for a society where the fundamental rights of expression, belief, and peaceful assembly are respected.
