Iran Commemorates 27th Anniversary of Death of Imam Khomeini

TEHRAN - Tens of thousands of Iranians gathered on Friday to commemorate the 27th anniversary of the death of Imam Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic Revolution and founder of the Islamic Republic.

Thousands gathered at the mausoleum of Khomeini in Tehran in a series of ceremonies, mainly religious, which started on Thursday and are expected to continue all day on Friday.

On Thursday, the president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, addressed the crowd gathered at the mausoleum to praise the figure of Khomeini and remember that it was he who "rose and braved all the world's arrogant powers at a time of darkness and historical suppression in Iran."

"Now, we have to prevent the Zionists and the arrogant powers from falsely presenting a marred image of the Iranian nation, the Islamic Revolution, and the Islamic Republic to others," added the president.

Imam Khomeini was born to a family of religious scholars in 1902.

He was known for his resistance against the US-backed Pahlavi dynasty, and eventually paved the way for its downfall in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
