She escaped prison by Mohammad Montazeri's efforts and went to London with a fake passport and after 6 months she moved to Lebanon, where she learned military tactics under supervision of Mostafa Chamran. She accompanied Ayatollah Khomeini during his exile in Paris.[4][5][6]

After the revolution, she became the chief of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Hamedan. She was one of the three messengers of Ayatollah Khomeini to Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in 1988.
