Former Commander Stresses Growth of Basij Organization among Iran's Friends

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian military commander underlined the necessity for the formation and growth of Basij (volunteer forces) organizations in the Islamic Republic's allied countries.



"It is necessary for us to define and organize objectives for Basij activities in those countries that are interested in the Islamic Revolution and by their own people in order that the 100-million-strong Basij would be materialized by (the advent of) the 2025 Vision Plan (20-year Vision Plan for Economic, Social and Cultural Development," Former Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani said on Monday.

He said that Basji should be active not only at national level but also all across the Islamic civilization.

Late in 2011, Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi announced that Tehran is studying formation of a 100-million-strong Muslim world Basij force.

"We will form the 100-million-strong Basij force of the Muslim world to materialize the promise of the late Imam Khomeini about the freedom of the noble Quds," Naqdi said in November 2011.

He underlined that Basij will bravely and steadfastly continue its struggle and fight for the freedom of Quds from the occupation of Zionist regime and to release all mankind from the claws of the world arrogant powers.
