NEW DELHI, June 2 (Bernama) — Imam Khomeini, Founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and leader of the Islamic Revolution was a unique personality for the Muslims worldwide, said an Indian scholar.
In an interview with Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Professor Baseer Ahmed, Vice- Chancellor, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) said: “Imam Khomeini was a unique personality for the Muslims worldwide with his strong faith and practical devotion imbued with lofty Islamic aspirations.”
He referred to Imam Khomeini as a man with balanced mentality who was loved by all Muslims.
He added that although many years have passed since his passing away, his objectives are fresh and have still great effects on other countries.
Praising the exceptional personality of the great leader, Baseer lauded his unflinching struggle to restore the pride and dignity of the Iranian people in particular and Muslims in general by standing up against the arrogant powers.
He said: “Without any army or fighter, Imam Khomeini uprooted the strong Western-supported dictatorship of the Shah.”
Indian Scholar said Imam Khomeini reminded us that the duty towards Allah is very important but the duty towards mankind is much more important.
If a human being fails in one’s duty towards fellow human beings, it is difficult to escape from the displeasure of Allah.
“Imam believed, and rightly so, that if the Muslims of the world moved in the light of Islam and became the true follower of their religion, they would easily overcome the anti-human forces in the world”, Baseer said adding that he taught us the lesson of resistance and patience and to be afraid only of Allah Almighty.
Through this belief, Imam Khomeini shattered the myth of invincibility of America and Zionist regime by urging the Muslims to be alert if any dispute takes place among Sunni and Shia brothers, as it could be harmful to all Muslims.
“May Allah grace and bless the departed soul of Imam Khomeini.” “The great revolutionary leader is no more with us today, but, his soul continues to inspire Muslims in particular and humanity in general the world over” Indian Scholar concluded.
“He referred to Imam Khomeini as a man with balanced mentality who was loved by all Muslims.”
