Addressing the gathering at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum, President Rouhani boasted the unity, accord, and strong bond between the nation, power branches, and the Leader of Islamic Revolution.
“It is up to all of us to protect the Islamic Revolution as the legacy of Imam Khomeini,” said President Hassan Rouhani of Islamic Republic of Iran at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum in the southern outskirt of Iranian capital city of Tehran, late on Thursday, addressing thousands of mourners and lovers of the late Leader of Iran.
He added that being part of the Islamic Revolution, and Revolutionary forces of people, are the sources of honor for him and vowed to take any measure to defend, continue, and evolve the Revolution.
“Following the Islamic Revolution, he designed the Islamic Republic which is the second major legacy of him to be taken as a role model for other countries and the Islamic world,” highlighted Rouhani adding that, “Imam stressed on Islamic nature of the new system along with the democratic essence of it and underlined the ‘Islamic Republic’ as the main framework of our country.”
Rouhani boasted that in the first year after the Islamic Revolution of 1979 five nation-wide elections were held that continued the same way in the years after with bold role of the people. He hailed that the election were held during the course of 8-year-war of Saddam on Iran, even under the heavy bombardments of the western-backed Ba’athist regime.
“It was thanks to Imam’s devised plan that shortly after his demise Ayatollah Khamenei was picked as the new Leader of the Islamic Republic, and led to the happiness of the nation,” said Rouhani in defining the third major legacy of Imam Khomeini which he name the leadership of ‘Velayat Faqih’.
The Iranian chief executive asserted that under the guidance and leadership of Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei the all branches of the Islamic Republic are moving toward the same goal and there is no disharmony between branches and the leadership of the country.
“The enemies would never see their wishes realized to have discord between the Leader and the branches,” underlined President Rouhani.
Commemorating the memories and words of the Late Imam, Rouhani took the convening of thousands of people at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum as a proof for a cemented tie of the late Imam and the nation.
