Rouhani: 13 Aban rallies reveal public attachment to Islamic Revolution
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday, said that massive turnout in "13 Aban" nationwide rallies to mark US embassy takeover, is an indicative of public attachment to the Islamic Revolution.
Iran Press/ Iran news: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a cabinet session late Sunday appreciated glorious participation of the people in 13 Aban rallies and Arbaeen ceremony, saying, “Arbaeen walk reveals deep bond between the Iranian nation and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) Infallible Household,” IRNA reported.
“Glorious holding of National Day of Fighting Global Arrogance at a time when US enmities are escalating following its' withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) indicates popular attachment to the Islamic Revolution and its' ideals,” Iranian President noted.
The 13 Aban rallies showed that after a lapse of 40 years since the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian people has still deep-rooted and unbreakable bond with the revolution’s ideals, Rouhani said.
The 4 November (13 Aban) rallies and demonstrations, marking 'the national day of fighting global arrogance', drew to a close in Tehran and other cities, towns and villages throughout the country.
39 years ago, on this day (November 4,1979), Iranian students seized the US embassy (den of espionage) in Tehran in protest of numerous US plots against the Islamic Revolution.
On this historic day (November 4), two other vital events took place in Iran's history and the struggles of the Iranian people for freedom from foreign hegemony and domestic despotism, which are the exile of the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (God bless his soul) in 1964 and the killing of a large number of youths in 1978 by the former authoritarian regime.
Every year on this day, the Iranian people demonstrate national unity and coherence, participating in the national march and shouting the slogans of the Islamic Revolution which are independence, freedom, the Islamic Republic and the struggle against arrogant powers. 101/201
