Imam Khomeini Commemorated

Iranians on Sunday commemorated the anniversary of the demise of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini. Born in 1902, Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini grew to become the iconic leader of the Iranian nation’s struggle in the 1970s against the Pahlavi monarchy. People from across the country descended on his mausoleum in south Tehran to attend the commemoration ceremony, Press TV reported.
Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei delivered an address to the mourners. His remarks are covered in a separate story published on:

Imam Khomeini spearheaded a popular protest against the policies of the Pahlavi regime which was a key ally of the US.
He was arrested and imprisoned in 1963 at a time of mounting protests. Upon release, he made a historic speech in the holy city of Qom, where he lambasted the “capitulation law” granting immunity to Americans living in Iran. The following years marked his exile to Turkey, Iraq and France before returning to Iran in 1979 which culminated in the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
