Iranian FM Views Islamic Revolution Source of Inspiration for Muslim World


Iranian top diplomat Ali Akbar Salehi lauded the Islamic Revolution’s soft power and rationale, and said the Islamic Revolution in Iran has played an inspiring role for all Muslim nations in the last three decades.

The Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979 is inspiring for justice-seeking movements in Muslim countries, Salehi said on Wednesday in a meeting with families of martyred employees’ of Foreign Ministry.

“Enemies are unable to understand Islamic Revolution of Iran’s logic and soft power which resulted in great achievements by Iran in various fields during the past three decades,” Salehi added.

In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had also described the Islamic Revolution as a source of inspiration for the revolutions and popular uprisings which have swept the Middle-East and North Africa.

Addressing Iranian Air Force personnel here in Tehran, the Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that Iran does not claim that the Islamic Awakening in the region has been initiated by Iran, but, no one can neglect the fact that the waves of Islamic Awakening have been inspired by the victory of Islamic Revolution.

The leader underlined that the latest developments in the region and the Islamic Awakening proved that the Iranian nation is moving in the right path and that the Islamic Revolution has flourished and is dynamically moving forward towards its goals 33 years after its victory.

The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei added that slogans of the Iranian nation have prevailed over the region and the nations following global arrogance have now stood by Iran pursuing the same goals.

The Leader further said that the message of the Islamic Revolution is the message of morality, divine values and salvation from the current miserable state of life in the West.

Since the beginning of 2011, the Muslim world has witnessed popular uprisings and revolutions similar to what happened in Iran in 1979.

Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.

Libya was the third country touched by the Islamic Awakening. Libyans also embraced victory after months of bloody campaign against the country’s dictator, Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Yemen have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.
