Mir Hossein Mousavi ’s Interview with Kaleme- kordaad88
Kaleme reports that in this interview which took place close to February 11th [22 of Bahman], the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution, Mousavi stated that the main reason for the collapse of the dictatorial and unpopular regime of the Shah was its illegitimacy [in the eyes of citizens]. He emphasized that the resistance of Iranians is a cherished legacy of the Islamic revolution. As is their intolerance for dishonesty, fraud and corruption. The complete interview is provided below.
We are approaching the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution. How can the recollection and commemoration of those days benefit us today?
First and foremost, I want to congratulate all of our people on the 31st anniversary of our [victory in the] revolution, particularly the families of our martyrs, our [war] veterans and prisoners of war [with Iraq]. Analyzing the Islamic revolution has not come to an end yet. There have been thousands of books and articles written about it and many still to come. It is interesting that the recent elections and the events following it have brought forth new critiques of the revolution.
