Imam Khomeini hailed Beheshti’s knowledge, wisdom

Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic on several occasion hailed Ayatollah Dr. Sayyid Mohammad Hosseini Beheshti’s knowledge of worldly and religious affairs and his political wisdom.

Imam Khomeini praised Beheshti’s efforts and contributions 36 years ago when Beheshti several of his colleagues lost their lives in the attack on June 28, 1981. 

The terrorist attack was orchestrated by MKO, which at that time was involved in a campaign of assassinations against officials of the Islamic Republic and revolutionary figures.  

The casualties were caused after a bomb exploded at the headquarters of the Iran Islamic Republic Party (IRP) in Tehran, while a meeting of party leaders was in progress. 

Imam Khomeini said in a historic message that Martyr Beheshti had been himself a nation.  

Dr. Beheshti was considered as a right-hand of the great Imam and Imam had assigned Beheshti with drafting the constitution of the Islamic Republic even months before the emergence of the Revolution in 1979.

Dr. Beheshti became one of the original members of the Council of Revolution of Iran and soon its chairman following the victory of the Islamic Revolution.  In the first post-revolutionary Iranian parliament, he led the Islamic Republic party.

Imam Khomeini issued a statement following the tragic event and martyrdom of 7th Tir, on June 28 in 1981.

Iran nation lost 72 innocent people in this event, and the number is the same as it was in Karbala. Iran nation is proud of presenting such persons who devoted themselves in the way of Islam and Muslims. People's enemies martyred a group who had gathered for discussing about country’s policy.
