The book SARDAR BIBI MARYAM BAKHTIARI, researched and written by Dr. Parichehr Soltani Zaraswand, narrates the struggle and self-sacrifice of this brave lady during the constitutional period and resistance against the colonialism of her time.

The Cultural Consulate of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran has now published this book in South Africa with the hope of inspiring the revolutionary South African minds, especially the brave women of this country whose contribution in the liberation struggle cannot be overlooked.


The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khamenei, in one of his speeches named this lady an anti-British fighter and praised her and her freedom-loving son (who sacrificed his life in the struggle against tyranny).
