Islamic Awakening Inspired by Islamic Revolution: IRGC Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said the wave of Islamic Awakening in the region and other parts of Muslim world is inspired by Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.
“Today’s Islamic awakening (movement) in the world countries is the outcome of the Islamic Revolution,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Wednesday, addressing a huge gathering of military forces in the county’s northern city of Babol.
He also underlined that the ongoing war between the hegemonic powers and the suppressed nations in the contemporary world has been inspired by the profound influence of the Islamic awakening movement on world countries.
Jafari, however, cautioned against the enemy plot to make people indifferent to the values of the Islamic Revolution, and stated that those involved in such hostile moves “disapprove the Islamic Revolution and are indifferent to the events happening in the Islamic world, including the Islamic awakening in the world.”
In relevant remarks on October 9, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the awakening movement received its impetus from the Islamic Revolution which from the very beginning heralded a “national, deep, pious, stable, capable and developing power.”
Addressing a gathering of the Iranian young elites and top students here in Tehran at the time, the Leader lauded the awakening movement in the regional countries, saying despite the wishes of the West this movement still continues unabated.
“Awakening of nations and (their) standing, with empty hands, against humiliating behavior of the West and the US was a big event, however, it (the awakening movement) is not over yet, contrary to the West's presumption,” Ayatollah Khamenei stated.
The Leader described the regional events over the past two years as a “historical turning point” and noted, “Its fate has not been finalized yet, and westerners are also worried about these events.”
