Humanity should learn from Imam Khomeini-Iranian Cultural Counsellor


Mr Abbasi Abdollah, the Counsellor of the Cultural consulate of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran has called upon the entire world to learn from and emulate the personality of Imam Ayatollah Khomeini.

Imam Khomeini who passed on in 1989 was the first Iranian supreme leader who led the country into the successful 1979 Islamic revolution which birthed the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Speaking at the commemoration of the 34th death anniversary of Imam Khomeini at the Islamic University in Uganda female’s campus in Kabojja on Thursday, Mr. Abdollah said that the entire humanity should take lessons from this leader whose principles live to date.

‘’In the dimension of rationality, Imam Khomeini uses wisdom, tact, thinking, and calculating things. The same goes for justice. Imam Khomeini always moved on the path of justice. These dimensions must be seen together,” he said adding,

“Relying on one of these dimensions, regardless of the other dimensions, leads society astray and deviates. This collection is a complete package of Imam’s intellectual and spiritual heritage. The Imam himself, in his behavior, was both a guardian of rationality, a guardian of spirituality, and a guardian of justice,”

He noted that the universe’s needs today, tomorrow, and many years have passed since the apparent death of Imam Khomeini, but his memory is always alive among us and must remain alive, and we must use his legacy, his spirituality, his thought, and his ideas.

“The main dimensions of Imam Khomeini’s thoughts are the dimension of spirituality, the dimension of rationality, and the dimension of justice,” he said.

He said that the manifestations of Imam Khomeini’s rationality include: choosing democracy for the country’s political system derived from his inflexibility in the face of the enemy and distrust of the enemy by injecting the spirit of self-confidence and self-reliance in the nation with the slogan “we can” through drafting a constitution and understanding the people He pointed out that they are the owners of the country.

Dr. Rouhollah Dehghani, the rector of Al-Mustafa Islamic College reminded the congregation about the nationalistic heart that was exhibited by Imam Khomeini during his reign.

He said that Imam recognized nationalism as a tool to support national unity, a secret of victory, among others.

Speaking at the event, Prof. Adam Ssebyala said that time to renew our commitments to the faith and also our mission.

He said that if a nation forgets its martyrs then it forgets its history and rallied members to always remember devoted servants including Imam Khomeini and the Ugandan martyrs who are remembered on 3rd June every year.

“A man is contented with the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran as they transfer what they have to those in Africa and worldwide. The people of Iran chose to be the Islamic Republic of Iran through a referendum. Imam Khomeini was a top Islamic scholar and charismatic leader coupled with exemplary characters that softened the hearts of his nation to support the Islamic Revolution,” he said

He said that it’s the leaders to suffer most to satisfy the people led in the society.
