Sheikh Zakzaky spoke on the Influence of Islamic Revolution in Iran to the Contemporary World where he said the revolution under the late Imam Khomeini(QS) changed the thinking of all those involved in other Movements to bring a change and to the entire world how practically the power of people can bring about a total change in the contemporary society.
The Struggle and eventual Success of Islamic Revolution led by Late Imam Khoemeini(QS) has changed in totality the world view toward religion contrary to what obtained before the success of revolution where Religion was seen by many as Opium of the Masses as in Communists view; also religion was not seen as a complete System that can run the affairs of people especially in governance to the extent that religion was mostly considered as a mere personal affair between man and his God.
