The mass killings[edit]

Hi. I'm looking for info about the mass killings. In particular the mass killings initiated after the revolutionary take over. Both the sporadic killings and the mass executions of political opponents. I couldn't find anything on this page. Maybe there are other pages specifically dedicated to this issue? Where are the Wiki-pages about all these killings? I can't find them. Thank you. RhinoMind (talk) 03:08, 16 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Revert with odd edit summary[edit]

LouisAragon, if you can 'find a plethore of sources that dismiss the "broadening of education and healthcare" stuff', why have you not done so? If you disbelieve that the broadening of education and healthcare 'is a IRI project, and not a continuation of the Shah's policies', why have you not challenged this with evidence to the contrary? There ought to be a mention of the Revolution's effect on domestic policy in the lead, and a one-sentence summary of a section of the main text is hardly burdening the lead with excessive text.

The two sources didn't support that statement anyways [1]. It was also quite vague, as it claimed this alleged "success" occurred "in recent years", yet the two cited sources were from 1994 and 2008, that's certainly not recent. The second source ironically didn't even talk about improvements under the IR, but the opposite, such as women "using their appearance and sexuality to fight the regime" and "Prospects for young people are not good and many graduates are lucky to get jobs as taxi drivers." --HistoryofIran (talk) 12:41, 6 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
