Japan Publishes Book on Imam Khomeini

A prominent Japanese author has compiled and published a book reflecting Imam Khomeini's wise leadership and his unprecedented qualities.

A biography of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution, has recently been published in Japan.

The book entitled “Imam Khomeini, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution” was published by the Yamakawa publishing house, some Persian news websites announced on last Tuesday. 

Kenji Tomita, an Iranologist at the Doshisha School of Theology is the author of the book.  

In his book, Kenji recounts backgrounds, events and causes that culminated in the victory of Iran’s 1979 revolution under the leadership of Imam Khomeini.

The writer also brings together a wide range of topics, including Imam Khomeini’s viewpoints on Islamic law and morality, a brief history of the Islamic Revolution, the fall of the Iranian monarch, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and the establishment of the provisional government. 

Born in 1947, Kenji has previously penned several other books on the Islamic Revolution.

The Islamic revolution under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini put an end to the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime in the country.

Aside from relieving the country of the monarchy, Iran's revolution also triggered several changes in the strategically-important region of the Middle East and some other parts of the world.

Meanwhile, all conspiracies to weaken the revolution couldn’t bear any good fruit. For an instance, Saddam's attack on Iran not only rallied the population around Imam Khomeini but also rendered a humiliated defeat to colonial powers and changed balance of power in the region.

Several pundits say the impact of the Islamic Revolution and its dynamic teachings were enormous and inspired revolutions as well as Muslim and free-minded generations in later decades.

Imam Khomeini revived the human and moral values and challenged all material systems that ignore the mankind spiritual perspectives.
