How did Imam Khomeini react to celebrations for 2,500 years of monarchical rule?

Imam's informative speeches and inspiring messages concerning the problems with Iran at a time when the Shah was at the peak of his power and was busy setting celebrations for 2,500 years of monarchical rule in motion and establishing a one-party system through the formation of the Rastakhiz Party, kept the flames of struggle burning.

Imam's words of encouragement at this time were like balm to the wounds and iron to the resolve of the combatants who were undergoing barbaric forms of torture in Savakis dark, dank dungeons and were condemned to long periods of imprisonment.
