About the author
From a whirlwind life full of unexpected turns to an enduring fascination with philosophy, Saeed Mirmotahari has carved a niche for himself as an unconventional thinker and writer. Born into a religious family, Saeed soon found his calling not in the dusty tomes of theology but in the vast, vibrant field of philosophy. He read voraciously, leaving behind the traditional religious path his family envisaged for him. During his academic journey, Saeed developed an interest in researching organized crime, specifically the Mafia in Italy. An interest sparked during a unique historical moment - the outbreak of a plague coinciding with the presence of Muslims in southern Europe. These experiences, along with a penchant for offbeat research titles, paved the way for his distinctive literary style. Recently, Saeed has turned his focus towards rewriting the history of Ashoura, armed with new insights and interpretations. His work is a testament to his ability to challenge established narratives and offer fresh perspectives. Saeed Mirmotahari is a testament to the power of defying expectations and forging your own unique path, even when it leads to the most unexpected places.
