History of KOMALA

1969 Abdullah Mohtadi founded the party among fellow Kurdish students and intellectuals under the regime of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi. 10-15 people organized the group, with five acting as key leaders. Komala was the first political party in Iran to work with female students. 1970s: Komala grew to become the main opposition in the Kurdistan region of Iran. Despite many party members being arrested for years, the party survived the Shah’s persecutions and harsh treatment of the opposition. Komala joined the Iranian Revolution, hoping it would end the oppression of Kurds and Iranians. But the nature of Komala’s movement was in sharp contrast to the movement in Tehran and across parts of Iran. In Tehran, Ayatollahs controlled the movement and made it an Islamic Revolution. Meanwhile, the Kurdish movement remained democratic and did not obey the rule of the Ayatollahs. Thousands of freedom fighters were killed by the Iranian regime, many tortured and imprisoned for years. 1983: Komala’s headquarters moved to Iraq, where Komala began to work with other Iranian opposition groups in order to build more resources to further progress Komala’s struggle for Iran’s Kurdish people.

2009: Komala openly supported the Green Movement, which protested against vote rigging and helped to smuggle out leaders of this movement from Iran in order to protect their lives and families. Present: Komala has established cooperation with several other political parties in order to fight for the bigger cause: establishing a better Iran.
