According to the leader’s office, following the passing away of Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Azizollah Khoshvaqt, the leader described his departure from the mortal world as a sorrowful calamity for the late cleric’s relatives and a great loss for his disciples.

Following the glorious victory of the Islamic revolution, he was appointed as the special representative of Imam Khomeini (God’s mercy upon his soul) in the Cultural Revolution’s High Headquarters. The late Ayatollah played a great role in cultural arenas, guiding the youth and training talented clergy.
May He rest in Peace…
