Imam Khomeini (RA), pioneer of Islamic solidarity against dominant powers

Acknowledged on the arrogant morale of the dominant powers and inspired by the holy Qur’an, Imam Khomeini (RA), the greatest contemporary reviver of Islamic values, rose to fight against global hegemonic systems not admitting the least withdrawal from his beliefs and principles.  Having this anti-arrogance morale led to four decades of sustained and influential presence of the Islamic system in the international arenas which foiled the different global plots to undermine or weaken the Islamic Republic system.
In the present world majority of countries are in either of two categories: the dominant or the subordinate.
The dominant system imposes its will on other nations using massive military, economic, media and cultural capacities impeding nations and governments to carry out their policies, in other words, deprives them of liberty and independence in different possible ways.
Imam Khomeini (RA) believed Muslim world should unite and act in solidarity against the dominant system. In his view, world arrogant powers have dominated the oppressed; hence, the world of Islam is responsible to confront the oppressor and defend the oppressed.
In view of Imam Khomeini (RA), the dominant system has aimed to control Muslim world resources and increase its wealth through implicit or explicit looting of Muslim assets not withholding from any warmongering, massacre, murder and looting. Meanwhile, another plot by the enemies of Islam is to wage soft warfare in an effort to persuade the Islamic nation as weak and dependent upon them as well as promoting morale of incapability in the Islamic nation. To hurdle the progress in the world of Islam and hold back Islamic states in scientific arenas are among other measures taken to boost the dominant system.
In view of Imam Khomeini (RA) all Muslim nations should strive to achieve independence and set free from the dominance of oppressive enemies in order to establishing their intended Islamic system. He founded the Islamic Republic system in Iran, a move which lit the light of hope in the hearts of the oppressed people across the globe. Muslim nations found that Islam has the capability to make the foundation for a divine system and confront the oppressors. More than four decades have passed since establishment of this divine system as it has proved its efficiency in confrontation with arrogant governments. Despite all hostilities during the time, it has determinedly maintained its promotion in the path of advancement and justice.
The uprising by Imam Khomeini (RA) has proved Islam as a salvation for contemporary man. As the public embraced this salvation, enemies of Islam struggled to tarnish this great achievement. In this line, they endeavored to prevent the public embracing the reviving school of thought by providing a distorted image of Islam to the west. An instance of these objectives by the dominant powers is masterminding and supporting Daesh in the recent years.
To support governments parallel in fighting world arrogant powers is another key axis in thoughts of Imam Khomeini (RA).
Meanwhile, it should be noted that to distinguish the right from void is not always effortless. It sometimes turns complicated to determine good from better or bad from worse. Also we should not bow to the oppressors within the world of Islam. To bully others is rejected even if from an Islamic country, at the same time, the worse committed by the dominant powers who are in constant pursuit of ruining Muslim world should not go unnoticed. A wise person is he who opts for worse rather than the worst when it comes to choose between either of them.
This is the main message by Imam Khomeini (RA). Islamic rationality demands blessings and kindness to prevail in the Islamic nation as it is the precondition for proximity to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). He who intends to be a companion of the prophet of Islam should behave kindly to other members of the Islamic nation.
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. (Fath: 29)
The oppressor should also be encouraged to return from his void path and if two Muslim tribes engage in warfare, then both should return to the path of justice but if the oppressor insists in his injustice, then he should be confronted.
