 We should closely look at how late founder of the Islamic Revolution Imam Khomeini as a religious leader, philosopher, lecturer and ethical scholar, managed to lead the revolution towards victory, the president stressed.

Elsewhere in his remarks, President Rouhani stated that the Islamic Revolution in Iran owes its victory to the leadership of Imam Khomeini who had deep also understanding of anthropology and sociology of the society as well.

“Had it not been Imam Khomeini’s deep understanding of the Iranian people and his acumen about social nature and social psychology of the country, the revolution would not have embraced victory,” the president said.

It is worthy to mention that the victory of Islamic revolution under Imam Khomeini’s leadership put Iran on track of progress and changed balance of power in the interests of oppressed nations.
