Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei stressed the enemies of the Islamic Republic are incapable of adopting anti-Iranian measures.
“Be aware that enemies cannot do a damn thing against the Islamic Republic. Islam’s and the Islamic Republic’s power and authority is growing,” the Leader said on Wednesday during a videoconference with a group of Iranian eulogists in an annual ceremony marking the birth anniversary of Sayyeda Fatima Zahra (a.s.).
“Of course, there have been ups and downs, some individuals serve the country and some others lose this opportunity but all in all the movement is towards development,” Imam Khamenei said, as quoted by Mehr news agency.
His eminence congratulated Muslims on the birthday anniversary of Sayyeda Fatima Zahra (a.s.) as he pointed to some of her distinctive characteristics.
The Leader referred to the fundamental difference of Islam and the West towards women. “Islam’s and the Islamic Republic’s view towards women is based on respect while the West’s views woman as a commodity and instrument,” he noted.
“Islam knows no difference between men and women with regards to divine and human values, Imam Khamenei said.
“We are proud of the view of Islam and we protest the Western view of women and lifestyle.”
Referring to the Western propaganda that claims Islam and the Islamic hijab hinder the growth of women, Imam Khamenei said “This is a clear lie and the obvious proof is the situation of women in the Islamic Republic.”
“Iran has not seen in its history this great portion of educated women and women that are active in different social, cultural, artistic, scientific, political, and economic fields and this is a result of the Islamic Republic,” the Leader highlighted.
