Ali Tehrani (born Ali Moradkhani Arangeh, 22 April 1926[1] in Tehran) also known as Sheikh Ali Tehrani is an Iranian Shia Islamic theologian and writer. He served as the representative of Khorasan Province in the Assembly of Experts for Constitution. During his youth, he fought the Pahlavi Dynasty and was arrested, put in jail and sent to exile by the regime. He is a Mujtahid and a disciple of Seyyed Hossein Borujerdi and Ruhollah Khomeini. After the Iranian Revolution and continuing his political career, he was sent to prison in Mashhad and was eventually released after months.[2]

He then secretly fled from the state-imposed house arrest in March 1984 to Iraq. From there, he preached against the Islamic Republic and its rulers, in broadcasts by Baghdad's Farsi-speaking radio and television[3]. He returned to Iran in 1995 and was sentenced to 20 years in prison but was released ten years later in 2005. He is Seyyed Ali Khamenei's brother-in-law[4].
