Iraqi Sunni Cleric:‎
Rasa – Shaykh Khalid al-Mulla said that the basis of the Imam Khomeyni’s uprising against the ‎Pahlavi regime and the arrogant powers was support for the oppressed people of the world ‎and said, “Imam Khomeyni is the spiritual father of the Islamic ummah.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency on the fortieth anniversary of the ‎return of Imam Khomeyni from fifteen years of exile, Shaykh Khalid al-Mulla, the chairman of ‎the Scholars Council of Iraq, ‎described the dimensions of the personality of Imam Sayyed ‎Ruhollah Mousavi-Khomeyni, the late founder of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, and said, “Imam ‎Khomeyni was a divine personality who presented a great divine project and such a ‎personality is very different from the other leaders, shaykhs and the emirs in the region, ‎whom the arrogant powers have put into power in order to fulfill their goals in the region.”‎

The Iraqi Sunni cleric added, “Imam Khomeyni was a great man who emerged with the divine ‎concept of helping the oppressed people of the world and defending Islamic unity and ‎Muslims. This is while the United States is trying to defeat the Islamic ummah in an ‎unprecedented way through the Arab Spring, or more precisely, the Arab Hell.”‎

Stressing that support for the oppressed people of the world are at the heart of the ‎Islamic Revolution, he noted, “Imam Khomeyni is a contemporary man who was able to ‎support the weak and oppressed people of the world, whether Muslim or non-Muslim. In ‎fact, in connection with the defence of humanity, he has left the vicinity of his grandmother, ‎Amir al-Mu’minin [Imam Ali], and the Islamic ummah considers him as their father.”‎

In another part of his speech, Shaykh al-Mulla explained that the Supreme Leader of the ‎Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, is the leader of the Islamic ummah and ‎stated, “In the case of Ayatollah Khamenei, we must say that during the holding of various ‎seminars and conferences, he is remembered for his goodness. The Islamic ummah expects ‎him to give the most support to the weak and oppressed whom the oppressors abuse and ‎to keep them out of the grip of the Zionist regime so that they can their normal life just like ‎other people.”‎
