Leader Warns of Plot to Consign Revolution Symbols to Oblivion

 Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned about a hostile and sinister plot to consign the symbols of the Islamic Revolution to oblivion.

 

In a Thursday meeting with members of a committee tasked with holding a congress to commemorate martyrs of the southern province of Hormozgan, Ayatollah Khamenei said virtues like courage and defending the righteousness have been institutionalized in the province.

 

“Commemorating martyrs is a necessary job and a duty of all of us, because a villainous policy and move is underway with the purpose of consigning the symbols of the Revolution, particularly jihad and martyrdom, to oblivion, and such a policy must be countered,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.

 

Martyrs, regardless of their age or education, are symbols of devotion and preparedness to sacrifice their lives for defending the truth, the Leader added, calling for efforts to familiarize the youth with such precious symbols and role models.
