The Islamic revolution of Iran succeeded in February 1979 under the able leadership of Syed Rohullah Khomeini. It was a unique revolution of its kind in the modern age, creating across-the-board ripples in the world
which was in the grip of capitalist and socialist systems then. Economic or any other material consideration was not the basis of this revolution rather it was an uprising against tyranny and imperialism as well as against those trampling moral and human values and was led by spiritual leaders with Imam Khomeini, the founder of the revolution, being at the forefront.
