The Imam possessed such a spiritual strength that all those who were received by him approached the incident with unsurpassed courage. 

Next he stated: "Mr. Ardabili should continue with the task delegated to late martyr Beheshti and I will also issue the letter of authority to him." He stated to Mr. Hashimi that the parliament must be kept running in whatever form that it existed then such that on the next day, the members of parliament who were severely wounded were brought to the parliament on hospital beds and serum drips so that the legislative assembly could function with the required minimum of members. 

Ima Khomeini also said in a historic message that Martyr Ayatollah Dr. Sayyid Mohammad Hosseini Beheshti had been himself a nation. 

Imam Khomeini made remarks 39 years ago when Beheshti several of his colleagues lost their lives in the attack on June 28, 1981.

Dr. Beheshti was considered as a right-hand of the great Imam and the founder of the Islamic Republic on several occasion hailed Beheshti’s knowledge of worldly and religious affairs and his political wisdom.

Imam had assigned Beheshti with drafting the constitution of the Islamic Republic even months before the emergence of the Revolution in 1979.
