The candidate who won the most votes for the Labour party's ruling National Executive Committee celebrated the Iranian revolution when hardline Ayatollahs took over the country, repressing freedom and human rights, MailOnline can reveal.
Yasmine Dar, who was elected top with 88,176 votes, has given speeches at an Islamist celebration of the Iranian revolution in Manchester for three years in a row.
In the most recent, in 2017, she said: 'We are here for a celebration, a happy time. Thirty-years of the Iranian Islamic revolution. So I'm absolutely happy, it's the third year I've been coming.'
The Iranian regime is known for its brutality. According to Amnesty International, torture is 'common', and 'floggings, amputations and other cruel punishments' are routinely carried out. Gay people are hanged from cranes.
The meeting took place at the Manchester Islamic Centre, in front of a huge portrait of Ayatollah Khomeini, still considered Iran's spiritual figurehead.
A video taken at the event suggests that women and children were sitting at the back of the room.
The Momentum-backed candidate was speaking on a platform in Manchester alongside the 9/11 conspiracy theorist Rodney Shakespeare, who has blamed Israel for the attack on the Twin Towers.
She later issued an apology and a condemnation of Mr Shakespeare's comments, after the matter was revealed in the press.
She has however also referred to Israel as 'the enemies of humanity' in a speech in 2014.
Ms Dar, 52, is a former social worker who represents Moston as a councillor on Manchester City's council and sits on Labour's North West Regional Board.
Despite supporting Andy Burnham in the 2015 leadership election, she was embraced by hardline Corbynites and is one of the candidates supported by Momentum.
It comes as Momentum members cheered Peter Willsman, who was elected to the NEC despite blaming concerns over Labour anti-Semitism on Jewish 'Trump fanatics'.
Labour is on the brink of civil war with at least three MPs understood to be poised to resign if the NEC fails to adopt the full international definition of anti-Semitism today, or tries to water it down.
The standoff is the culmination of months of clashes between Mr Corbyn's supporters, moderate Labour MPs and Jewish representatives.
The Labour party remains engulfed in an anti-Semitism crisis that has dominated headlines over the summer.
In August, the Daily Mail revealing that Mr Corbyn laid a wreath near the graves of the Munich terrorists, and MailOnline disclosing his comments that British Zionists 'don't understand English irony'.
