In an interview with IRNA, Hojatoleslam Gholamreza Mahdavi compared the leader’s letter to the one written by the late leader of Islamic Revolution Imam Khomeini to the former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev, saying that if Soviet leaders had listened to Imam Khomeini’s message, they would have had different destinies.
Head of India’s Al-Mustafa Society said the west has been manipulating tekfiri terrorist groups such as ISIL to tarnish the image of Islam.
With the Islamic Revolution, he added, Imam Khomeini proved that Islam is a religion that has plans for all aspects of life including politics, culture, and economy.
Islamic Revolution presented a new role model of running public life which was different from the western way of life, and this is why they are against it, said Hojatolesalm Mahdavi.
