jos_rev_iran-300x202 Millions of Iranians across the country have taken to the streets to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. On this day back in 1979, the Iranian nation toppled the US backed Pahlavi regime, ending Iranian monarchy. The Islamic Revolution, under the guidance of its founder late Imam Khomeini, brought a new political system based on Islam and democracy.
Huge demonstrations were held all across the nation on Thursday in commemoration of the occasion. In the capital Tehran, an extraordinarily high number of people from all walks of life marched across the city and gathered at Azadi (Freedom) Square to take part in the festivities. They were carrying banners denouncing the enemies of the country. Reports say the Chairman of the Assembly of Experts, Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and former president Mohammad Khatami attended the rallies in Tehran. A few hundred of supporters of Iran's defeated presidential candidates also rallied in Tehran. Supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi gathered in a western Tehran district. Police stepped up security in the area to prevent possible disturbances. Defeated presidential candidate Mehdi Karroubi was seen among the protesters. Iran's Council for the Coordination of Islamic Propagation also issued a resolution on behalf of Iranian demonstrators, declaring the Iranian nation has renewed its allegiance to the ideals of Imam Khomeini and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. It declared that protecting the Islamic establishment and supporting the rule of the Supreme Jurisprudent is an obligation and a source of national unity. The resolution added that the Iranian nation believes that acquiring peaceful nuclear technology is its legitimate right. It also condemned those who question the results of Iran's presidential election and cause unrest in the country. According to Shiite News Correspondent,The statement called on those who have been deceived to recognize the will of the majority and return to the rule of the jurisprudent. It further called on the judiciary to take firm action against rioters and eliminate the roots of corruption once and for all.
