Rasa –‎‏ ‏A member of the Assembly of Experts‎ ‎said, “This issue was an idea and a dream that ‎all the religious scholars ‎sought to achieve.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Ayatollah Sayyed Rahim Tavokkol, ‎a member of the Assembly of Experts, referred to the early atmosphere of the Islamic ‎Revolution said, “During the time of the sinister Pahlavi monarchy, corruption and depravity ‎were dominant in all its dimensions in the society but when the aroma of the Islamic ‎Revolution and the rule of the Holy Quran and the rule of religion came to the people, the ‎cries all those who felt pain for their religion came out due to the corruption of that time. ‎They were eager to establish the rule of religion and divine command and dismantle cruelty ‎and oppression.’‎

The senior Iranian cleric added, “Thus, so all those who were concerned about religion were ‎working as much as they could to establish an Islamic government and they considered ‎revolutionary actions as their duty.”‎

Ayatollah Tavokkol said, “Everyone knew that by establishing the Islamic and Quranic ‎system, religion would rule the country, and a leader would be chose who would be a ‎comprehensive mujtahid and pleasing in all aspects to God and His Messenger and who ‎governs by the logic of the Quran and religion.”‎

His Eminence ‎stressed, “This issue was an idea and a dream that all the religious scholars ‎sought to achieve so when the means of such a revolution were provided, all the religious ‎people stood up and answered the call of Imam Khomeyni. This servant, along with others, ‎strove to achieve the goals of the Islamic Revolution as much as we could and we ‎considered it as a duty for ourselves.”‎

Ayatollah Tavokkol ‎ added, “We have heard many times that the people were firm at the ‎beginning of the uprising of Imam Ali or Imam al-Husayn but when their presence was ‎needed, they pulled themselves away. The people of Kufah became infamous in history for ‎their disloyalty and our nation of Iran didn’t want history to denigrate us and for this reason, ‎all those who were firm at the beginning of the Revolution must be present at the end in ‎different fields in order to achieve its fruits.”‎
