As a result of his activeness, he acquired followers in Kashan and other central Persian areas. Capture and execution
In 1573, due to the threat posed by the Imam, the 2nd Safavid monarch, Shah Tahmasp, ordered the governor of Hamadan, Amir Khan Musilu, to go to Anjudan to capture Murad Mirza. However, the Imam was soon captured and imprisoned, but again escaped, this time with the aid of a sympathetic high-ranking Safavid official named Muhammad Muqim.
With the help of his followers, the Imam was able to escape to Kandahar.
However, while in Afghanistan, he was once again captured by the Safavids. This time there would be no escape, and after being brought before Shah Tahmasp he was executed alongside Muhammad Muqim in 1574.
