Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on June 27, 1907, where Dakhow mocks the overzealous journalists who abandoned their newspapers in the midst the Constitutional Revolution. He also reports on the atrocities committed by tribal brigands loyal to the king; the financial corruption, forgery, and theft of the supporters of the shah; and attempts by parliamentarians to limit democratic reforms to Tehran and major urban centers. The column also includes a pseudotelegram where the conservative Shaykh Fazlollāh Nuri, who joined Mohammad-Ali Shah in opposing the new order, proposes additions to the Supplementary Constitutional Law that would give five top-tiered mojtaheds veto power over the deliberations of the Majlis.

Keywords:   Iran, Constitutional Revolution, journalists, Shaykh Fazlollāh Nuri, Mohammad-Ali Shah, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
