SEYED MOHAMMAD HOSSEINI
Leader of Iran’s RESTART Movement
RESTART is an influential political mystical program that is broadcast from Hosseini’s radio station, Radio Pasto, since 2016.
RESTART movement aimed to encourage Iranian people to take action for changing the regime in Iran.
Each of the audio files of this program has been downloaded over one million times from his Telegram account.
Although, the cyber army of the government of Iran is trying so hard to hack Hosseini’s accounts and they did close down his Facebook and Instagram pages, they could never stop the huge number of downloads on his Telegram channel.
Shab-be-Kheir Iran (translated to Good Night Iran) is another program hosted by Mr. Hosseini.
This program offers strong political analysis of the current situation in Iran. Hosseini has written and directed this program since 2012.
Following the broadcast of the two above mentioned programs, Seyed Mohammad Hosseini became a powerful opposition figure in the Iranian politics.
After only a year of broadcasting, 20 million young and intelligent Iranians had already started to listen to his radio programs. It spread quickly with the help of social media platforms like Telegram, Instagram and Facebook and it is now the largest populist movement in the Iranian modern history.
Young RESTARTEES also undertook political actions called Challenges by Mr. Hosseini.
The challenges include the Paint challenge, the Noise Bomb challenge and the Profile Picture challenge.
The Paint challenge asked RESTART followers to throw paint at the Iranian government buildings, including Iranian embassies in other countries, marking them as targets. This was done in the days leading up to the Iranian presidential election in May 2017.
Many people took up this challenge and did so in Iran, Australia, Germany, England and many other countries.
The leader of RESTART movement encouraged all his followers to take the Fire challenge to burn down mosques, buildings belonging to the Iranian regime and police stations from October 2017.
These young people are desperate for a change to come to Iran. They demonstrate their commitment to RESTART by risking their lives, taking actions and then sharing pictures and videos on social media to prove it. They want the world to know about their movement and to appreciate its power and for the Iranian government to take note of the huge number of people who are demanding change.
The leader of RESTART movement, Seyed Mohammad Hosseini, stands along with the Iranian people who came to the streets and questioned the Iranian government’s promises in the election campaigns on the issue of economic crisis.
The Iranian government puts its people’s lives in Jeopardy to support their allies in the region like Syria, Yemen and Lebanon by sending them weapons to destabilizes the region instead of helping its own people.
The only movement which has stood by the Iranian people when it comes to their blood being shed on the streets is RESTART who called for retaliation.
