    He was involved in a workers' protest against a British manager, and he ended up fleeing to Najaf in Iraq to escape arrest (1943).

    He organized assassinations on politicians deemed antagonistic towards Islam, such as Ahmad Kasravi.
    The two v’s in his name look so close that they look like a ‘w’.

    Many members of the Fadayan-e Islam work for the Iranian government.
    The Iranian government declared him a ‘martyr’ despite his terrorist actions.
    He was charismatic and potentially attractive, which probably won him followers.

    An expressway and metro stop in Tehran are named after him.
