Tehran (IP) - The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the demise of Imam Khomeini, The late founder of the Islamic Revolution, said that Imam Khomeini's thought was centered on people's capabilities, as the theory of Islamic Republic developed through his efforts.

Iran PressIran news: The main points of the statements of the Leader of the Revolution are as follows:

- Another June 5th came and the public atmosphere of the country was filled with the memory of that great personality, Imam Khomeini. This great man and the irreplaceable leader, that compassionate heart, that steely will with determination full of strength, that wise and far-sighted man.

- Our nation and country today and until the distant future needs to take care of this dear memory.

- Today, what I want to say is a discussion about the most important initiative of the great Imam. The Imam had many initiatives, but this is the most important initiative of the Imam, which is the Islamic Republic.

- This is the same religious democracy that was recognized as the Islamic Republic.

- I start the discussion from the point that among the revolutionary systems and the systems that have been formed in the last one or two centuries, I do not remember any system to the extent of the Islamic Republic which has been predicted to decline and collapse.

-From the first day of the revolution, the ill-wishers and those who could not digest and tolerate this great phenomenon, both inside and outside the country, said that the Islamic Republic would not last for another two months, six months, or a year.

- The strength and determination of the great Imam and the great victories of the Iranian nation in the eight-year war extinguished these commotions. These commotions ended almost at the end of the Imam's life.

- But after the departure of the Imam, the ill-wishers came back to life and began to express their wishes. An old, worn-out party, of course, made a statement in 1980 declaring that the Islamic Republic was on the brink of collapse.

-A few years later, another group and faction, which unfortunately had also state positions and members of parliament, announced in a letter that there was little time left for the Islamic Republic, that is, these days it is about to disappear. Their tendencies were almost the same as the party.

- Before and after these, other individuals, groups, and parties spoke in this way.

- The last one was the same one-two years ago when the Americans said the same thing and a high-ranking American official said that the Islamic Republic will not see its 40th anniversary. I do not remember in any other system so many predictions of decline and collapse.

- Those who made these predictions looked at the systems that emerged from the revolutions. Because many movements disappeared shortly after they were created. Almost 15 years later, the French Revolution underwent a strong authoritarian monarchy like that of Napoleon. The same is true all over the world. In Iran, too, the constitutional movement was created with all passion and enthusiasm, and 15 years after the constitutional decree was signed, someone like Reza Khan came to power with that strange dictatorship and black tyranny that was far worse than the Qajar era.

- Later, in the 1950s and 1960s, a movement was created and Iranian oil was taken away from British control. A couple of years later, a coup took place and Mohammad Reza started a very dangerous complex dictatorship for a long time. That is, these events have happened.

- But thank God the revolution and the system of Imam Khomeini, not only did it not collapse and it did not stop, but it became stronger day by day, did not settle down and revealed its independence day by day and achieved great success and overcame obstacles. They created many successive obstacles in political, security, economic, etc. Today, the Islamic Republic is more developed than 40 years ago and is ahead in all respects by the grace of God.

The question arises, what is the secret of this permanence? Why did the Islamic Republic not face the fate of other revolutions in spite of all this hostility? I decode this secrecy. These are the two words of the glorious secret of this system. That is, the Republic and Islam. What has been created from these two words must also remain stable. There are both people and Islam.
