Millions remember Imam Khomeini across the globe

June 4 marks that sorrowful day in the history of the Islamic Republic of Iran on which the Father of the Islamic Revolution left the mortal world for his heavenly abode, leaving a grateful nation in grief.

This year marks the 29th anniversary of the demise of Imam Ruhullah Khomeini, the man who led one of the greatest revolutions of the 20th Century, a revolution which survived 40 years of punitive measures by the US-led Weest and permanently changed the political landscape of the Muslim world and redefined relations between the West and the Middle East in a way that no other event did in recent history.

As a matter of fact, conscientious people and the seekers of truth and freedom all over the world were aggrieved on hearing of the news of the passing on of Imam Khomeini (may God bless his soul).

The reformer, who shaped the most popular anti-oppression uprising of the century and revived Islam on the social and political scenes, continues to rule the hearts of the faithful.

 Imam understood the US-led West’s political and economic systems far better than most Western educated Muslims ever did.

It was his total reliance on God that enabled him to surmount immense challenges in the struggle to establish the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He was a leader who on the basis of religious teachings succeeded, in not just overthrowing a despotic regime, but also in reviving in society the genuine teachings of Islam in order to prevent deviation and innovation from creeping in.
