The deputy of Culture and Information Minister  of Kyrgyzstan divided Iran’s achievements in three parts:
1. The Islamic revolution of Iran, entered Islam to the individual, social and political life of people;
2. The Islamic revolution of Iran revived religious, cultural and artistic values and preserved the heritage of the great Iranian civilization;
3. Respecting and giving identity to the high position of thinkers, religious scholars and leaders was another achievement of the Islamic revolution of Iran.

Imam Khomeini who was a student of this school of thought also invited every one to the same thing. Imam Khomeini, a character which is studied from different dimensions in the 21st century, is a unique divine leader. He was the one who made all souls joyful.”

Abedini by mentioning that Imam Khomeini was a great mystics and politician, stated: “Among the great jobs that Imam had done through the region and the world, was reviving of spirituality and bringing it inside the society, and not just theoretical but completely practical, as Imam Sadiq has said: “Preach for people without them asking”, and he had such a great spirituality within his naive body some how that those who had visited him will never forget his spirituality.”

He then continued: “Imam Khomeini said that our universities, schools, radio and TV should all have spirituality. In one of his speeches he stressed that if all the prophets from Adam to the last prophet, Prophet Mohammad, gather with each other they would have no argues with each other, because they were not following their own benefits, but they were all seeking spirituality and they were all divine people themselves. Imam Khomeini was a divine person too and he considered all the victories as an act by the God.”

In the continue of this session “Hojatoleslam Imani”, praying Imam of Imam Ali mosque in Bishkek, along with talking about Imam Khomeini’s spiritual personality, stated: “Imam Khomeini was a unique person in the 21st  century, who invited all Muslims to unity . The unity of Muslims was quite important of Imam, and he always introduced the common enemy of all Muslims to them, and remarked that Muslims shouldn’t search for each other’s weaknesses, because this would cause their division.”

An example for this will be naming the art Friday of Ramadan as the Qods day for supporting the Palestinians. Imam Khomeini always emphasized on intellectual growth and education of adolescents and youth along with self-purification and said that intellectual growth of our children is done by the schools and therefor he recognized the schools more important than the universities and considered that being a teacher is the job of prophets because by training pious people the world would be become pure too.”

Imam Khomeini considered a great value for the position of women in Islam and involved three groups to revive Islam:
1. Religious scholars;
2. Scientists;
3. Women.

Meaning that the development of a society is based on these three sectors, and he believed that if these three sector would improve well, the society will also improve.”

In continue he added: “All the commands and recommendations of Imam were based on Islam and Islamic Shriah, and one of his recommendations was that a woman is a pattern and if she becomes pure, all of the issues in a society will be solved and he also believed that women could be in charge of important roles in a country.”
