Imam Khomeini confronted imperial powers, shook palaces of world arrogance

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic managed to stand up to imperial powers and reaffirmed the sovereignty not just of Iran but of nations everywhere.

Nations around the world welcomed Imam Khomeini’s message, which was looking for freedom and standing against tyranny.

Imam Khomeini is well-known for changing political landscape of the world. 

The Islamic Revolution under Imam’s wise leadership changed the balance of power in the interest of oppressed nations and confronted world arrogant and colonial powers and their policies.

Imam Khomeini’s most important achievement was that he revived Islam again and proved to everyone that Islam is a viable system.

Imam Khomeini spent more than 14 years in exile, mostly in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf. He also spent some time in Turkey and France before his return to Iran.

By toppling the Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, the Iranian nation ended 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.

The Islamic Revolution established a new political system; a republic based on Islamic values and democracy.
