Imam Khomeini the religious and spiritual leader of the world founded very comprehensive Islamic-democratic system along with very strong institutions which are excellent instances of good practices and unique governance.

The Islamic Revolution under the wise leadership of Imam also changed balance of power as the colonial powers cannot unilaterally further their agenda or policies in the Middle-East Region or other important strategically important regions of the world.

Imam Khomeini also founded very strong institutions and formed the assembly of experts members of which are elected by the popular vote of masses. The assembly wrote the charter and basic constitution and the Islamic laws were enshrined in this charter of great significance.

The Iranian constitution drafted following the victory of the Islamic Revolution earns its legitimacy from God Almighty and his devotees and attaches great importance to human esteem and dignity.

The Iranian constitution has four following characteristics and distinctiveness:

  • Protection and preservation of interests and rights of all strata without any discrimination
  • Prediction of the needs of next generation and fulfillment of their needs in accordance with the Islamic laws
  • The laws were set in very explicative ways so they don’t become subject to wrong interpretation through the course of history
  • The laws and constitution should provide guidelines and inspire the Islamic movements and become role model for them

The Islamic Revolution stood against the storms of hurdles such as eight-year imposed war launched by Saddam regime and illegal sanctions imposed by the colonial powers.

It can easily be summed up that Imam established a system which tended heavily torely on divine, human, social and democratic values where all strata were well protected and people could determine their own destiny.
