TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Iranian Cultural Center in Nigeria plans to hold a webinar titled “Imam Khomeini (RA) and Second 40 Years of the Islamic Revolution of Iran”.

Webinar on Imam Khomeini's views planned in Nigeria

 

It will come on the 33rd anniversary of the demise of Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Slated for Wednesday, June 1, the online seminar will feature speeches by 8 religious and cultural figures from Iran and Nigeria.

Islamic governance, Wilayat Faqih (governance of jurist), first Islamic government in the world, comprehensiveness in Imam Khomeini’s thoughts, and politics in view of Imam Khomeini are among the themes of the speeches.

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.
