Imam Emphasized on Participation of People

The founder of the Islamic Republic frequently used to highlight the significance of participation of the mass public in all political, social, economic and cultural arenas.

Imam Khomeini sought a very strong participation and role of masses and people in all areas of life form all perspectives. 

He instructed relative authorities to guarantee all political freedoms and civil liberties for people. 

The world spiritual and religious leader had once told the Britain’s Times TV reporter during an historic interview that the Islamic government in Iran would promote democracy and justice. 

The world religious and spiritual leader also insisted on developing an all-inclusive democratic institution, promoting democracy and enforcing rule of law in the society.  

Imam Khomeini emphasized on developing sincere and deep relationship between the people and the leadership of the Islamic-democratic government. 

Analysts maintain Imam Khomeini could constitute the most popular types of governments in contemporary era.

Contrary to all the world’s existing political systems, the people, after determination of leadership and carrying out elections, do not disavow responsibility.  Rather, their presence in the scenes of management of the Islamic society and participation in the destiny of the Islamic System is guaranteed as an incumbent religious duty.

The great leader of the Muslim world used to maintain that the pillar of Islamic rule is based on mutual trust between the people and competent leadership. Imam insisted on serving masses on oppressed classes of the nation.

“If they call me a servant, it is better than being called a leader. Leadership is not what matters; what matters is service; Islam has made it necessary for us to serve... I am a brother to the Iranian people and regard myself as their servant and soldier... In Islam, one-thing rules and that is the law. Law also ruled during the time of the honorable Prophet; He was the implementer,” Imam Khomeini said in one of his messages.

In spite of the animosity of the existing world’s greatest powers and the imposition of an 8-year war, all these are best proofs of the rightfulness of the Imam’s theory of real democracy.

The Islamic-democratic could survive and was strengthened by passage of time due to deep ties between the masses and the leadership.

Pundits believe that if Imam Khomeini’s role-model of the Islamic-democratic is widely adopted by the Muslim nations, then the Islamic world could be relieved form the ongoing miseries and difficult situation.

The Islamic Revolution emerged victorious under the wise leadership of the great Imam which set stage for the prosperity of the Iranian and other oppressed nations across the world.
