  Tudeh Party of Iran - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tudeh was a major political party in Iran, prior to the purges during the regime of Ruhollah Khomeini.
The Communist Party of Iran was founded in June of 1920 in Bandar-e Anzali, in the province of Gilan, as a result of the first congress of Iranian social democrats.
In 1965 the party faced a second division between the mainstream of the organization and the splinter faction which advocated violent struggle against the government by arming the tribes of southern Iran.

 History of Iran: State of paralysis (Tudeh factionalism and the 1953 coup)
Tudeh's relationship with the Soviet Union, the party's violent attacks on Mosaddeq during 1951-1952, the party's loss of initiative during 1952-1953, and the strength of the Military Organization are either ignored or played down.
The official Tudeh reaction to the issue of the causes of the party failure came during the party's historic fourth plenum, held in Moscow in July 1957.
The party blamed the leadership's weakness on the lack of internal democracy in the party, the lack of close bonds between the leadership and the party members, and the low level of theoretical knowledge of the leadership and the existence of deep differences among party leaders.

We mentioned that the basis of the Tudeh Party movement is collusion and conciliation with the ruling class and we also mentioned that due to the present conditions, this party's disgrace among the masses blocks the possibility of this "Party's" growth through deceiving them.
In one particular case, the Tudeh Party, believing that mass demonstrations must be orderly and non‑violent, condemned the inevitable outbreak of violence and ascribed it to the conspiracy of SAVAK agents.

 Tudehii Thinking, the Barrier of  Iranian Opposition
And the approach of Pahlavi regime was that Tudeh Party acted as the spy of the Soviets trying to replace the British and American influence with the Soviet influence.
A decade later, with the fall of the Soviet Union, the remainders of Tudeh Party were as different as the remainders of all other groups of the left.
Although it is true that political parties also do educational and journalistic works, but their goal of doing them all is to take power, and they should not be unclear about it, and to be shy of announcing their goal.

THE TUDEH ON THE EVE OF THE COUP
The party's anti-Musaddiq policy during 1951-1952, promoted mainly by the hard-line faction but which was also initially supported by some moderates, although not exactly similar to the Soviet policy toward Musaddiq, was partially based on misinterpretation of a CPSU policy.

 Who was Mansoor Hekmat
The Tudeh Party, The Aksariyyat (Majority), the Three-worldist Maoists, and the Trotskyists joined either this or that faction of the regime, and the populist-socialist organizations such as Peykar and Razmandegan plunged into crisis and, like Komala, came to a dead end.
He wanted the Communist Party of Iran to be the organized section of the worker-communist movement, or, as he put it, a 'single-stranded' worker-communist party, but he knew that his party was not such a party.
The formation of the party was an answer to the needs of an independent workers' movement, and the need to give to this movement an organizational dimension, distinct from existing communist and left parties, parties that in fact represent other social movements.

 History of Iran: History of the Tudeh Party of Iran
The Communist Party of Iran helped to found the Union of the Oil Workers in 1925, when Reza Shah took power and two years later, under increasing pressure from the police, was forced to take the trade union underground.

At its inception, the party did not include the famous "Workers of the world unite!" slogan in its bylaws, and focused primarily on an ideological opposition to Nazism and Fascism; a stance that consequently attracted many Jewish intellectuals to the party.
The Jewish intellectuals' sympathies for the Tudeh party were further fueled by the growing wave of anti-Semitism and sympathy toward Hitler in Iran at that time.
In 1948/49, the Tudeh party began losing the support of many Iranian Jews, however, as it aligned itself with the Arab countries against the founding of the state of Israel.

 Radicalization of the Pre-Revolution Student Movement
Following the pattern of a Soviet-style Communist party, Tudeh sympathizers began to create student organizations that were ostensibly only pursuing the academic and financial demands of the students, but were in fact political in nature.
When finally, the Tudeh Party was all but expelled from the Confederation, and when the Front itself turned more and more into a leftist organization, the source of the tensions that hitherto plagued the Confederation dissipated.
As far as the Front was concerned, the Tudeh Party was guilty of treason in the matter of the nationalization of Iran’s oil industry.

Current Tudeh Party leaders appear to have as little understanding of neoconservatves (neo-Trotskyites), conservatives, and of capitalists as their party’s leaders had of Marxism in the early 1950’s.
Tudeh Party leaders claim to be true Marxists, yet they fail to explain how they reject Stalin’s totalitarianism.

After the Tudeh Party was banned in Persia a fifth series of Donya began irregular publication in Germany in 1984 but also carried an address in Stockholm.
Complete runs exist in some European and American libraries, but, because the Tudeh Party and its publications were usually banned in Persia, only the fourth series, which was published in Tehran, can be found in Persian libraries.

He attended his political meeting at the age of 13, when a close friend Moradian took him to a meeting of the youth organisation of the Iranian Tudeh party (pro Soviet    communist party) and he subsequently joined this organisation.
In 1946 he came in contact with a group called ‘Krojoukha’ which was critical of the Tudeh Party.
Although the new organisation identified itself as a force opposed to the Tudeh Party they also rejected guerrilla tactics used by other opponents of the Tudeh Party in the Iranian left and tried to create worker cells in order to propagate communist ideas amongst the working class.
