Islamic Republic’s Progress to Nullify Western Liberal Democracy: Leader

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei hailed the Islamic Republic as a government that awakens and strengthens humanity, saying the progress and prevalence of such a system will negate the Western liberal democracy logic in the world.

A group of people from Iran’s central province of Isfahan met with Ayatollah Khamenei at the Imam Khomeini Hussainiyah in Tehran on Saturday.

“The problem that the arrogant powers have with the Islamic Republic of Iran is due to the fact that if the Islamic Republic makes progress, flourishes, and shines in the world, the Western world’s logic of liberal democracy will be invalidated,” the Leader said in the meeting.

“The West has plundered the entire world for more than two centuries using the logic of liberal democracy. In one place, they said there is no freedom here. In another place, they said there is no democracy here, and they entered those places. They plundered the wealth, treasures, and resources of those countries under the pretext of wanting to establish democracy there. Europe, which was poor, became wealthy at the price of demolishing many wealthy countries such as India and China. Now Iran was not colonized directly, but they did whatever they could here as well,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

“An example of this is in front of your eyes in Afghanistan. The Americans entered Afghanistan and committed crimes there for 20 years. They committed all sorts of crimes. After 20 years, the same government that they were initially fighting against ended up governing Afghanistan. They handed (the country) over to them and left (Afghanistan) in such a disgraceful manner,” the Leader stated, reported.

“Now, if a government or a system is established in the world that rejects the logic of liberal democracy and it uses real logic to give people an identity, to give the people of its country an identity, to revive them, to awaken them, and to strengthen them while standing up to liberal democracy, this will invalidate the logic of liberal democracy. This is how the Islamic Republic is,” Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
