AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): In an educational event in Kashmir, different aspects of late Imam Khomeini’s thoughts were discussed by a host of scholars.
Ayatollah Khomeini’s 33rd demise anniversary was observed across Kashmir on Sunday.
Several events were held to mark the occasion as renowned scholars and thinkers expressed their views and offered tributes to Imam Khomeini, according to IQNA’s reporter in Kashmir.
A daylong Annual Educational Conference was held at Madina Public School, Baliharan Pattan, to commemorate the anniversary of the great leader.
Moulana Masroor Ansari threw light on the life of Imam Khomeini and also paid rich tributes to his memory.
He said the great leader abolished the monarchy and established Islamic rule in Iran.
Grand Ayatollah Seyed Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini, better known as Imam Khomeini, passed away on June 3, 1989, at the age of 87.
As an anti-imperialist icon, he devoted his life to standing up to Iran’s former Pahlavi monarchy, a key ally of the United States, and eventually paved the way for the regime’s downfall in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
He spent many years in exile in Iraq, Turkey, and France, from where he led a swelling grassroots movement, which ultimately put an end to millennia of monarchical rule in Iran.
He came back home on February 1, 1979, after the Shah fled the country amid angry popular demonstrations. The Pahlavi regime fully collapsed 10 days later on February 11.
