Yes, but still significantly less evil than the crew that replaced him.
The problem with the Iranian revolution wasn't the iranian revolution, but the people who hijacked it. The revolutionaries where great people who wanted democracy and a liberal and free Iran , but unfortunately a lot of Iran where illiterate and conservative and this allowed the far right religious conservatives to sweep in and sieze control from the people. And the first thing they did was not only round up and execute the shahs men, but also the very people who overthrew the shah.
Irans revolution is a modern tragedy, and something we are seeing repeated in Syria as ISIS snatches victory away from the people for their own sinister ends.
