Farsi (Persian) term or phrase:Basilij
No context avaialble. Is it Farsi? If so, what does it mean?
Explanation: You might be referring to the word "Basidji" instead of Basilij - in which case it is an Isamic Paramilitary force in Iran.

Explanation: "Basiji"--pronounced "ba-see-Jee"-- refers to a member of "Basij" (Islamic Republic's religious militia). I was actually in Iran when the Basij organization was created. The word "Basij" stands for "to amass" (usually people) for a common goal (often offensive action).
Basijis attacked the students' demonstration.
بسیجی ها به تظاهرات دانشجویان حمله کردند.
