Iranians Celebrate Islamic Republic Day: A Milestone in Nation's History and Political Identity

Every year on the 12th of Farvardin (March 31), Iranians commemorate the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, a significant shift in the country's political system and governance. This national holiday highlights Iran's political and cultural identity, celebrating its achievements and aspirations as a nation.

Iran (IMNA) - The Day of the Islamic Republic marks the end of centuries-long monarchy in Iran, as the people's maximum participation symbolized their pride, freedom, and independence. The establishment of an Islamic Republic was voted for by over 98.2% of eligible Iranians in a landmark two-day referendum held on March 30-31, 1979.

This turning point in Iran's history was the realization of the slogan 'independence, freedom, and the Islamic Republic,' and the start of religious democracy in a world divided between the ideologies of the communist East and the capitalist West. The late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini, described April 1 as 'the first day of Allah's rule,' aiming to implement the Law of Islam in all aspects of the country.

By choosing an Islamic Republic, Iranians not only embraced a political system consistent with their Islamic beliefs but also opted for independence from the West and its unhealthy affiliations. Today, Iran faces various challenges, including sanctions and opposition to its peaceful atomic energy efforts. However, the Iranian people continue to uphold the principles of Imam Khomeini and honor the sacrifices of their martyrs.
