TEHRAN (Iran News) -Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the enemies of the country are incapable of adopting anti-Iranian measures. “Be aware that enemies cannot do a damn thing against the Islamic Republic and that Islam’s and the Islamic Republic’s power and authority is growing,” the Leader said on Wednesday in a meeting with eulogists.
Of course, there have been ups and downs, some individuals serve the country and some others lose this opportunity but all in all the movement is towards development, he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei congratulated the birthday anniversary of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (PBUH) while also pointing to some of her distinctive characteristics.
Difference between West’s and Islam’s view towards women
Elsewhere, the Leader referred to the fundamental difference of Islam and the West towards women. Islam’s and the Islamic Republic’s view towards women is based on respect while the West’s views woman as a commodity and instrument, he added.
Islam knows no difference between men and women with regards to divine and human values, he said, adding that men and women each have special duties in addition to their common duties and that is why God Almighty has created the composition of their physical structure in accordance with these special duties.
“We are proud of the view of Islam and we protest the Western view of women and lifestyle.”
Islamic Republic paved grounds for women’s growth
Referring to the Western propaganda that claims Islam and the Islamic hijab hinder the growth of women, Ayatollah Khamenei said “This is a clear lie and the obvious proof is the situation of women in the Islamic Republic.”
Iran has not seen in its history this great portion of educated women and women that are active in different social, cultural, artistic, scientific, political, and economic fields and this is a result of the Islamic Republic, the Leader highlighted.
