Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Bushehri called on Iran’s parliament and people to support its nuclear negotiating team adding Iran must protect its nuclear industry and stand up to the excesses of the enemies and do not let them interview our scientists or inspect our military facilities.
Hujjat al-Islam Bushehri added the world must know that if one day the nuclear talks fail, it is due to the excesses of the US and the West.
Hujjat al-Islam Bushehri referred to the 15th of the Iranian month of Khordad, which marks the 52nd anniversary of an uprising against the US-backed former monarchical Pahlavi regime, saying that on this “unforgettable day, we mark the beginning of the Islamic movement led by Imam Khomeini, which represented a new force against the domestic tyranny as well as foreign oppression against the people of Iran.”
To Iranians, the 1963 uprising marks a prelude to the victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution in 1979 as on this date, massive crowds of people took to the streets across Iran to protest against the arrest of Imam Khomeini by the Pahlavi regime’s security forces. Imam Khomeini had been arrested for an angry speech against the ruling Shah and the US.
His Eminence explained that under dictatorship of the Pahlavi regime, the separation of religion from politics was an attempt to bring Iran back to the era of ignorance which existed before the arrival of Islam and an attempt by non-Muslims to dominate over the fate of Muslim people. This tyranny provided the background for anger against the regime and the solidification of the position of Imam Khomeini which led to the 15th of Khordad uprising.
Hujjat al-Islam Bushehri described this 15th of Khordad uprising as a religious uprising which led to the unveiling of the anti-religious facade of the Shah’s regime and ultimately led to the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the defeat of the Shah’s powerful regime.
On the occasion of the birth of the saviour of Islam, the twelfth and final Imam, Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi, His Eminence appreciated the believers’ celebration and participation in ceremonies marking his birth. “Those who are waiting for Imam al-Mahdi are the best people are all the time,” he said, referring to a famous narration from the Prophet Muhammad.
