Mirza Abolghassem Khan Motazed-Daftar Vaziri (1905–1981) was Motazed-Dowleh’s second son.

He was given the title “Motazed-Daftar” by Soltan Ahmad Shah when he was fourteen years old. He went to study at the American University of Beirut in 1925 and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Grenoble in France in 1937. He, together with his companions, was among the first engineers in Persia.

Abolghassem became, in chronological order, vice-governor of Kermanshah, CEO of the Technology Governance Group of Iran, CEO of the Technical Factory Complex of Shahi (Qa’em Shahr), CEO of the Glycerine Factory of Iran, CEO of the Factory Complex of Vanak, and CEO of ETKA (commercial State-owned holding).

After the success of the coup d’état against Mohammad Mossadegh, he went to work in Marseille in France, where he took on a high-level position in an industrial group. However, motivated by love for his country, he decided to go back to Iran. Even though he was known to be a strong supporter of Dr Mohammad Mossadegh, he received an order of merit (neshaane Homayoon) from the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. He died in 1981.
