IRGC Commander Underlines Global Growth of Islamic Revolution

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Sunday that the Islamic Revolution is growing rapidly in the world, adding that this growth is somehow indebted to Iran's inspiring role.

"Today, the Islamic revolution is rapidly growing across the world," Jafari said, addressing a gathering in Iran's Northeastern holy city of Mashhad.

"Meanwhile, it should be mentioned that Iran and the Islamic Republic ruling system have been a source of inspiration for this move as they are at the center of this divine movement," Jafari noted.

Pointing to scientific advancements in area of media and communication technologies and their effects on conveying the message of Islam in the world, he reiterated, "Today, very good conditions have been prepared for Islam and the Islamic Revolution and for the promotion of the messages of the (Islamic) Revolution."

Since the beginning of 2011, the Muslim world has witnessed popular uprisings and revolutions similar to what happened in Iran in 1979.

Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.

Libya was the third country touched by the Islamic Awakening. Libyans also embraced victory after months of bloody campaign against the country's dictator, Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Yemen have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.

In Yemen, although the people have toppled the dictator and elected a president, the revolution still continues as allies and family members of the former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh, still hold key posts in the country and have not been brought to justice.
