Leader underlines need to promote religious democracy (11.11.2001)

Tehran, Nov 11, IRNA -- Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Sunday that the people and officials are expected to promote religious democracy in the country. Addressing several hundred thousand people who had gathered to welcome the Leader in Kashan, Isfahan province, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the people and the officials should make every endeavor to lead the country toward multilateral progress and reconstruction. The Leader said that the idea of separating religion from the government system has led to establishment of dictatorship in Iran in the past 100 years adding that religion has been successful in mobilizing the people against the despotic rules in Iran (which culminated in the victory of the Islamic Revolution). "Ayatollah Kashani mobilized popular support for (Prime Minister) Dr. Mohammad Mossadeq in 1940s (until 1953 -- the US backed military coup), but, the enemy had realized the effective role of religious leader Ayatollah Kashani in supporting the prime minister in nationalizing the oil industry, so that it engineered various plots to sow discord between the government and the religious leader to undermine the (nationalist) government. Eventually, it initiated a military coup in 1953 and help Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to restore his dictatorship," the Leader recalled. The Supreme Leader further recalled the events in different stages of the Constitutional Movement in Iran (culminated in 1906 with a signature put by Mozaffar-eddin Shah of Qajar dynasty on the then Constitution) and said that Britain installed the puppet regime of Reza Khan Pahlavi to drive the constitutional movement to failure. Ayatollah Khamenei advised the youth to learn lessons from the history of their country and reach the point why the late Imam Khomeini foiled the attempts to separate religion from the government system. "Despite enemy attempts to make the youth disenchanted with the religious nature of the Islamic Republic, the youth have got acquainted with the beauty of religious attitude in the past 23 years and have hoisted the flag of Islam over the country," the Supreme Leader said. The Leader cautioned the officials against engaging in partisan conflicts and missing the opportunities to pave the way for the progress and welfare of the people. The Leader said that extensive development plans have been carried out in the country in the past 23 years and recommended that the achievements of the former governments should not be played down. The Supreme Leader said that the youth are national human assets to go ahead with the development plans adding that the country will reach ultimate prosperity and progress to the dismay of the big powers. Ayatollah Khamenei said that the world community is suffering from absence of justice and morality adding that the Iranian youth are the standard bearer of justice and morality so that the world community would follow the pattern of the Islamic Republic in honoring justice and morality.

Ayatollah Khamenei said here earlier that officials and Iranian nation are duty-bound to follow the path of martyrs, that is materialization of the Islamic aspirations. Talking to tens of thousand of the bereaved families of martyrs, the war disabled, and former Prisoners of War in Isfahan, Ayatollah Khamenei remarked that the society should benefit the ever-shining path of the martyrs through avoiding negligence and barriers of spiritual fulfillment. The brave youth who sacrificed themselves during the eight-year imposed war (1980-88) had been well aware of the importance of their move, said the leader, adding that the martyrs knew very well that territorial problems were not the only problem at issue, rather the enemies were trying to harm the dignity of the Iranian nation and to prevent the spread of Iran's innovative notions. He said self-confidence of Muslim nations and their opposition to the arrogants are among results achieved through the invaluable efforts of the sacred defense martyrs and other war veterans. He warned against neglecting the path trodden by the martyrs whom he called ``divine blessings and precious reserves," adding that the late Imam Khomeini's path and goals, clearly defined in his last will and testament, had served as the sole yardstick for the martyrs in their divine efforts, and the same should trace our today's way of life.

Isfahan, Nov 3, IRNA -- Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday received a large number of students at Isfahan University of Medical Science and put forward political analysis about the process of democracy in the Islamic Republic. The Supreme Leader advised the youth to honor the national and Islamic identity of the Iranian nation. "The Iranian youth are expected to promote the status of their country at the global level and work for the progress and success of the nation," the Leader told the university students. The Supreme Leader said that the youth are the genuine supporters of reform programs, because they want justice, legitimate freedoms and Islamic values. The human being, at a young age, cannot tolerate injustice. "What the youth want is not contradictory to the aspirations of Islam, instead, it is the necessity of Islam," the Leader pointed out. The Leader said that Iran has a large young population and the youth shoulder religious obligation to safeguard their national identity and Iran's collective interests proportionate with their high percentage of population. The Leader said that the youth should promote national and Islamic advantages and explore the contradiction of former monarchical regime with Islamic values. "Islam helped the Iranian nation free itself from humiliation of the arrogant powers during the past centuries. Islam helped the nation mobilize its forces to stand against the arrogant powers and establish a system of government with new perceptions in line with moral values," the Supreme Leader said. The Iranians have formed a democratically elected system of government on the basis of popular votes in line with Islamic values and established an independent country in a sensitive area of the world so that it is normal that the enemies would continue their hostile policy toward Iran. "Under this circumstances, is it possible the youth would remain indifferent in the face of various conspiracies? the Supreme Leader questioned adding, "How can someone say that the `hostile conspiracies are illusive'? "We, the Iranian nation, have found our path and are determined to proceed with it. We will maintain our determination thanks to the help of the Almighty," the Leader said. The Leader complained that some people give Western prescriptions for solving the current problems and said that the essence of Western solution to the problems is that the Palestinian nation have been deprived of their rights and have been exposed to mass killings and homelessness in the past 50 years. "It is surprising that some people who have become well-known for their adherence to Islam and the Islamic Revolution and the late Imam Khomeini, voices interest in Western liberalism which runs contrary to Iran's religious democracy," the Supreme Leader said. Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic has solid foundation and even the biggest enmity could not work to undermine its solid foundation. The Leader said that the Constitution, the late Imam Khomeini's line and the general policy of the Islamic Republic are the criteria that should be respected. The Supreme Leader emphasized that the youth should cooperate with the government in its development programs and plans to generate more jobs. Ayatollah Khamenei hoped the youth would help accomplish the aspirations of the Islamic Republic set by earlier generation.

Tehran, Nov 1, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in Isfahan on Wednesday that officials and Iranian nation are duty-bound to follow the path of martyrs, that is materialization of the Islamic aspirations. Addressing tens of thousand of the bereaved families of martyrs, the war disabled, and former Prisoners of War in Isfahan, Ayatollah Khamenei remarked that the society should benefit the ever-shining path of the martyrs through avoiding negligence and barriers of spiritual fulfilment. The leader said high social awareness and lofty spirit had been the key features of the martyrs. The brave youth who sacrificed themselves during the eight-year imposed war (1980-88) had been well aware of the importance of their move, said the leader, adding that the martyrs knew very well that territorial problems were not the only problem at issue, rather the enemies were trying to harm the dignity of the Iranian nation and to prevent the spread of Iran's innovotive notions. He said self-confidence of Muslim nations and their opposition to the arrogants are among results achieved through the invaluble efforts of the sacred defense martyrs and other war veterans. Elsewhere in his remarks, the leader warned against neglecting the path trodden by the martyrs whom he called ``divine blessings and precious reserves."

Meanwhile, the leader in a meeting with 2,000 university professors in Isfahan called as awful evils the factionalism and political leanings at universities, noting that factional issues should not at all be raised at classes and scientific centers and should not influence the selection of officials and directors. Ayatollah Khamenei said all problems of the country can be solved and the ground for progress is available provided that sincere, consistent and definite efforts are made. Also addressing a group of armed forces in the historical city on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei said awareness coupled with devotion for lofty divine causes are the keys to invincibility of the armed forces. The paramount leader said armed forces do not serve raising power of a person or group because the Islamic system is not a system for persons, rather, a system for aspirations. Ayatollah Khamenei said under such a system, armed forces strive for God, the elevation of Islam, and the dignity and prestige of the nation and country. This, added the leader, gives the armed forces an invincible spirit, ability and power. The commander-in-chief of the armed forces said the Iranian nation firmly believe in the armed forces, stressing that the armed forces should safeguard national trust as they raise their preparedness and be always well-prepared for devotion in the path of Islam, the Revolution and Iran. Ayatollah Khamenei said power, self-confidence and spirit of the armed forces result from ideological and cultural foundations of Islam. After the leader's address, the elite units of the Islamic Republic Army, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), police, Basij and Tribal Basij marched before him.
