Leader:

Getting entangled in minor issues proves detrimental to Revolution

Getting entangled in minor issues proves detrimental to Revolution
IRAN  - Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Monday highlighted the main goals of the Islamic Revolution including national dignity, saying that getting wrapped up in trivial issues creates obstacles for Revolution.

On the 12th day of the auspicious month of Ramadan 1439, a group of university students and representatives from student associations met with Ayatollah Khamenei at the Hussayniyeh of Imam Khomeini (RA).

Addressing the university students this evening (Monday), Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated: 'During the revolution, since the beginning, there was a false idea that the revolution survived only until the formation of a government, and after that it should be eliminated. A revolution has different stages; what happened first was the first stage. The second stage represents the realization of revolutionary values and ideals via a revolutionary government. The next stage is about realization of values in a revolutionary society. The final stage is the formation of a revolutionary or Islamic civilization.'

The Supreme Leader went on to say: 'Thus, the revolution doesn't end. A permanent and evolving change is required in order to achieve the goals of the revolution.'

According to Ayatollah Khamenei, the main goals of the Islamic Revolution include: national dignity, national confidence, political, economic and cultural independence, freedom of thought, administering justice and preventing discrimination, enhancing social behavior, are preparing ambience for growth of spirituality.
These goals can't be achieved in a short time. If this revolution lives long, these goals will surely be achieved.

Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized: 'I am informed about the matters of our country and receive reports. I believe we have moved forward in every goal I named. As for the young persons who say our situation is very bad, I understand their feelings but not their words at all."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution reminded his audience: 'This overall discussions at the meeting reveal that despite complaints, university students live in a lively and happy environment. Many of your complaints are appropriate. But there is a difference between you, the enthusiastic youth, and those like me who have seen more of this world. The difference is that you express wishes easily. But I can see by experience and feel the distance between a wish and its practical realization. In order to make these wishes come true many prerequisites are needed, one of which is for you to express them. The future of our country is in your hands, who criticize today and it will be a bright future.'

He then stressed: 'This meeting conveys a great message that the youth have motivation, belief, zeal, and are determined to act. Those who are hopeless about the future should view this and correct their opinion."

Mentioning that one of the obstacles in the way of progress of the revolution is some officials, Ayatollah Khamenei added: 'It is said that all the problems are thought to be created by the US and the UK. Well, may God curse the wicked US and the UK. But there are also domestic obstacles. Some of the domestic obstacles include lack of determination, laziness, and impatience. We also have revolutionary patience: Imam Ali (a.s.) who is a symbol of a revolutionary person was very patient. Being revolutionary doesn't necessarily mean destroying a governmental system. Being revolutionary is only possible in the existing context of the system.

He added: 'Another obstacle is preoccupation with detrimental affairs and arguments over trivial issues like the issue of virtual space.'

Indicating that if wide scale onslaughts of the enemies of the Islamic Revolution against public opinion, are not encountered by raising awareness and demanding ideal goals, the onslaughts will surely be destructive, the Leader of the Revolution added: 'The troops of revolutionary and enthusiastic youth should build a wall against destruction of public opinion, and also managerial and scholarly environments. Values must be demanded in a proper manner. In public opinion aristocracy and ideological dependence on foreigners must be eliminated."
